That’s right, my gorgeous wee boy Zakky has come back to us through the magic of Facebook. Eighteen days after he disappeared, this is how things transpired this evening:
– Lovely Tania, from across town posts to the local SPCA’s facebook page that a large, skinny, tame-but-scared ginger cat has been hanging around her house for the last week.
– The wonderfully community minded Tina, who owns the Four Square (convenience store) in my previous town spotted the post and tagged me.
– I reply to the post, which prompts Tania to go outside and call him by name. Zakky comes running and Tania, being an volunteer animal foster carer, has a great big canvas pet carrier to trap him in.
– Tania sends me a message on facebook to let me know and I head over to ID him. Within half an hour of Tania’s posting on Facebook, Zakky-boy is safe at home. He’s very skinny, but he’s healthy. So far Zakk has had three meals, a tonne of cuddles and has reasserted his place at the head of the pride.
