My Christmas Cats

Two months later in November,after Air Canada told Vanessa Summerfield her cat named George went missing at Edmonton International Airport.The cat found by the airline withfrozen body. When Summerfield had a vet check to make sure it was him, the dead cat turned out to be an unidentified female.

On Tuesday, Vanessa the 25-year-old got a phone call from a search volunteer, George had been found by a family in Leduc,10 kilometres south of the airport.He was a little thinner, a little scratched up but healthy.

Summerfield: “When I found out I was convulsing and shaking and crying,” “Christmas came early for me . . . . It’s the best gift I could ever have.”

The approaching winter had her close to losing hope of ever finding the sleek black and white cat.

“It’s been him and I for six years,” she said. She got George as a kitten in Chatham, Ont., and he moved with her to Fort McMurray, Alta.

“I don’t have any family out here,” she said. George — or “li’l bugger” as she fondly calls him — was someone to come home to.

According to Vanessa, The cat was supposed to be going to stay with her parents in Ontario while she looked for a new pet-friendly home.But he escaped his carrier in the cargo hold on his way from Fort McMurray to Edmonton. Air Canada cargo staff managed to put him back in the kennel, but he got loose again while being driven to the baggage room.

A later examination of the kennel showed “a key bolt was missing from the door,” said Angela Mah, an Air Canada spokesperson.

A frantic search was kicked off, and Summerfield was flown down by Air Canada for a day to assist. Posters of George were put up and circulated online via Facebook and Kijiji by cat-loving volunteers in Edmonton and across the country. A $1,000 reward was offered by Summerfield.

On Sunday, George appeared outside Hope Gulseth’s condo in Leduc. She left out food for the wary cat, as well as a small nest of blankets. Two days later, he’d plucked up enough courage to come inside, happily joining the family’s two other cats.

Meanwhile, a Kijiji post by her husband about this new cat — clearly someone’s pet — was found by one the search volunteers.

“When (my husband) told me that the cat had been gone for three months I said, ‘You’re lying!’ ” Gulseth said.

“We had no idea this was a famous kitty.”

While she is delighted that the cat can be reunited with his owner, her 4-year-old son is already attached to the affectionate feline.

He’ll get to spend Christmas with George though — Summerfield and her pet won’t have their first reunion cuddle until the new year, when she gets back from vacation.

Two WestJet employees in Edmonton who volunteered in the search process have offered to personally escort the cat home, keeping him under the seat in the passenger cabin, not in the hold.

Air Canada is also consulting Summerfield on how to reunite the pair, said their spokesperson

Pet cat trapped, shot 27 times and survives

cat worldsThree-year-old silver tabby Sparky was shot after going missing from his house in Caernarfon. In a remarkable case of animal cruelty, a cat was shot 27 times with an air rifle, but survived. It was trapped in a cage and shot at point blank range, twice in the face, and the cat sill has some pellets lodged in its body.

The cat's owner found it and pulled five pellets from its body herself, and doctors have removed more. They don't know who did this to this poor animal.

THE relentless torture of a pet cat that was shot 27 times at point-blank range in the head and neck with an air rifle has outraged animal welfare authorities.

Possum, a two-year-old male domestic cat, somehow survived shocking cruelty after cowards trapped him in a cage about 9pm on Friday.

The gun was shoved in the animal’s face and mouth with two direct shots penetrating his tongue and lodging in his nasal cavity.

Police are investigating the violent attack on the cat, which will have surgery today to remove 15 remaining pellets.

Owner Jodi Mulley pulled out five of the pellets herself while seven other pellets that punctured the skin were not found.

It is believed the animal was caught in a cat trap somewhere at Portsmith and repeatedly shot with the slug gun. One lead pellet narrowly missed the cat’s jugular vein.

He said in 18 years working as a vet, he had never seen such a disturbing attack on an animal.

cat of the month, Hanna..!!!

cat worlds - There are still many cats and kittens looking for good homes in the Animal Shelter and other Canyon County Boise area Humane Society shelter. Like the beautiful tourtoise shell calico, Hanna, older cats are harder to find adoptive parents for. Most people are distracted by all the cute little kittens available.

From my own experience of adopting shelter dogs, some older animals are the most loving. In the search for a new pet, please consider adopting an older cat of your local shelter. They are usually good for animals who had to be abandoned for one reason or another. Whether the family was forced to move to a new home where they are not allowed to keep pets, or perhaps someone in the family is allergic to cat dander. Sometimes the neglect of a family pet and having to housing is a painful decision for the family. Give an older displaced a house cat lover would be a wonderful thing to do and probably the family was forced to give up to feel better too.

Older cats make great pets for older people who want a loving companion animals that will sit in your lap and purr of a kitten rather rambunctious young people wishing to explore their surroundings and come in all sorts of mischief.

Remember, all cats are shelter and sterilization or neutered so you save money, for example, get a free kitten in an ad in the newspaper. At the moment there is no fee for adopting a pet from the shelter, so why not a cat? -Author: Sieglinde "Kitty" Scanlan :cat worlds
