We saw a post on Facebook about a cat that was in the Dartford area that had been involved in an rta. Normally this is not the area we cover as it takes us at least half an hour to 45 minutes to attend, but because it looked as though no one was responding and there was no one willing to help we just couldn’t bear the thought of the cat laying there alone until morning.
So we asked for the postcode and crossed our fingers that we could find the cat as we are not sure of the area at all.
Thankfully it only took us 25 minutes to get there as the traffic was clear and we found the cat quite quickly. We parked up and grabbed our scanner and a towel to wrap him up, checked him for a chip and he was chipped, his name was Louie a black domestic short haired boy. We also found his red collar not far from where he was so lifted this also.
We then pulled the details from the chip and rang the last known number on the database. We explained who we were and why we were calling, the owners were very upset by the news and asked if we could bring him home. Louie was only a few yards away from his home, so we wrapped him up, gave him a kiss and cuddle and placed him into our box to keep him safe from the elements.
When we arrived the owners were clearly distraught and they had explained that Louie has a brother that live with them. We explained that it may be best that his brother was given the chance to say goodbye so he himself didn’t go wondering for him.
We all stood in silence as Louise’s brother said his goodbyes, and after a few minutes of him looking and smelling his brother he walked away.
Thankfully Louies’s microchip details were up to date and he was able to be reunited to his owners so they have closure.
