Monument City Brewing Company Gets Their Cat Back

Furiends, on Wednesday, I told you about how Willow, a feline who lived at Monument City Brewing Company, was taken by humans who thought he needed a home. The humans at the brewery did not think they were trying to hurt Willow, who is known as Will for short. Instead, they thought the humans who took him saw a friendly cat outside and wanted to give him a home.

Monument City’s humans missed Will, and they put out a call on their Facebook page to get him back. Local media shared the story, and the story spread far and wide. And fortunately for Will, it worked.

According to one of the humans at Monument City, three people who didn’t know about Will took him home. They didn’t know he was living at the brewery as a working cat. And they thought they would give him a good home.

“They treated [Will] really well” when he was away, said this human. And the interaction when they brought Will back was “nothing but positive.”

In order to celebrate Will’s return, Monument City is going to throw a party today. Or since it is because of a feline, maybe we should call it a pawty?

Feline Reunited With Humans After 10 Years

When we felines go missing, if we are not found quickly, it is likely we will never be found. A human now living in Colorado lost their feline 10 years ago, when they were living in California near where the wildfires recently destroyed lots of homes. They thought coyotes or other predators had taken their indoor outdoor cat. Furiends, this is a reminder about why felines do best inside!

Humans searching for missing felines found a feline in the rubble. The poor feline suffered serious burns but survived, and the kind humans took him to the humans in white coats. The white coated humans treated the feline and checked for a chip. When they did, they called the human listed in the records.

That is when the human in Colorado learned their feline, named Pilot, had survived all those years. Pilot suffered serious injuries in the fires. To recover, he needed two surgeries, including one where he lost five toes. But he endured this, and then traveled to Colorado to be reunited with his humans after ten years.

Pilot Found His Humans After 10 Years

As soon as Pilot arrived, he went to one of the small humans in the home and immediately cuddled with them. And he did not lose any of his quirks despite being away for so long. He likes to hop into his water dish and stand in it. I do not know why he does this. Sometimes Jacey, Koji, and I swat the water in our dish to make it move before we drink it. But we do not stand in it!

Pilot lost his humans when he was a young feline. Now, he is an old feline. He is very stoic, which should not be a surprise after so many years out on his own. But he still loves his humans as well as other humans. I am glad he gets to spend the rest of his days inside with the humans he loves!

Feline Reunites With Human After Five Years

Furiends, Koji gets nervous when the human goes away for a few days. I have to reassure him that the human will be back. When Jacey is here, she does the same thing. We laugh at Koji, and when the human comes back, we tease him about this.

But I do not know what it would be like to not be around the human for five years. I would be very sad. And I would have to explain to Koji that I may have been wrong and that the human will not come back.

One human had to deal with this. One night, their feline named Astro went outside to take a stroll. Astro did this every night and always came back. The human went to get Astro and could not find him. They tried very hard to find Astro without success. They figured Astro was gone for good when they could not find him after a long time.

Before he wandered off, Astro’s human microchipped him. And this is what led to his reunion with his human. A human who Astro met liked him, and they took him to the white coated humans. When the white coated humans prepared to microchip him, they found out he already had one.

The white coated humans called Astro’s human with the good news! Soon afterwards, Astro’s human brought him home. I am happy Astro had a chip in him, because this reunion would have been impossible without it!

And Astro’s human gave some good advice. They said that if a friendly feline comes wandering by a lot, “it doesn’t hurt to take them down for a microchip check.”‘

As for Astro, he wandered around the home, checking it out. He realized he was back with his human. Then he hopped onto the couch. He got comfortable, and then took a nap. Furiends, Astro acted like he had been away for five minutes, not five years!

Astro’s story reminds us about the importance of getting felines microchipped. It also reminds us that it is best if we felines stay inside.
