Furiends, we felines are good at finding places to hide if we do not want you humans to find us. Just ask the human. Sometimes, he wants to know where Koji is and he looks all over the place. Then, Koji will pop up out of nowhere and say hello to the human.
But Koji has never done this outside, through 40 days and three snowstorms. That is what a 12 year old feline named Captain endured.
You see, this feline was moving with his human from Montana to Alabama when he managed to escape. His human looked for him, but they could not find him. So they called someone who helped them take care of their feline when they were away and asked for help.
This human really committed to finding the missing feline. Captain is a senior cat with a heart murmur. They set up wildlife cameras, and worked with humans who lived in the area to find him. For months, there was nothing. But one day, when this human went to find captain before a big snowstorm, things finally went their way.
After a second day of searching, they saw a feline right by the hotel where they were staying. They new it was Captain. Captain was very cautious after being outside for so long. And he ran away. The next day, the search continued. This human, along with others who had committed to finding Captain, found him huddled among some pallets. When they moved the pallets, Captain ran away but these humans were able to capture him.
Every muscle in Captain’s body was stiff because he was scared. But then he recognized the human who was holding him, and he relaxed. The white coated humans examined Captain. He lost more than half his body weight, furiends. The white coated humans treated him, and he stayed with them for two weeks.
When Captain finally recovered enough to travel, the human who committed to finding him took him home. And now, Captain will be their cat and will never go outside again!
