Charlot (908), a 10-year-old cat, was adopted from the Refuge in January of 2005 by a Verdunite named Nathalie. On June 15, 2014, Nathalie informed us that Charlot had gone missing. We posted an ad on our website in the hopes that someone who crossed paths with him would recognize him. Two months later, Andréa, another Verdunite, found a cat and, thankfully, decided to check our Lost & found cats ads. She thought she recognized Charlot and contacted his adopter. Nathalie went to meet her right away, and what a happy ending! The cat Andréa had found was indeed Charlot, who had gone missing two months earlier, and was found steps away from where he lived.
Nathalie is so happy her cat has been found. A big thank-you to Andréa and our best wishes for happiness to lucky Charlot!
On June 21, 2012, Cynthia, a friend of the Refuge, told us that she had been feeding a stray cat that looked a lot like Rupert, a cat who went missing in Verdun on March 23, 2012. We had a "lost" ad for him on our website. On June 23, 2012, Cynthia managed to reach Melodie, Rupert's owner, and her roommate.
It turns out this sweet cat, emaciated after having spent exactly three months lost in the alleys of Verdun, is actually Rupert!
We wish Rupert a safe return home and would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to our friend Cynthia for finding his family!
On March 6, 2012, one of our foster families sent us a "found" ad for an elderly cat she had found in Verdun and taken under her wing few days earlier. After putting the notice on our website, our webmaster looked on Petluck.ca to see if any of the "lost" ads posted there described the cat that the foster family had found. As soon as she saw the ad for Boots, an elderly cat who had gone missing in Westmount 9 days earlier, she wrote to the people who had posted the ad to let them know how closely the cat in our "found" ad resembled theirs. A few hours later, the foster family and Boots's family told us the good news: Boots was indeed the cat that had been found in Verdun!
Boots's family would like thank Francine (the foster family) for coming to Boots's rescue, and the Refuge's volunteers for making their reunion with Boots possible.
At the beginning of August 2011, a man who had adopted a cat from the Refuge in the past contacted us to say that he had found a very thin, declawed female cat in Ville-Émard. A volunteer from the Refuge went to pick the cat up. She consulted our Lost & found cats and discovered that the cat she had picked up greatly resembled Pistache, who had been lost since July 8, 2011. What is more, this cat had been found in the very neighbourhood in which Pistache was living at the time of her disappearance.
The volunteer contacted the woman who had sent the "lost" announcement for Pistache to the Refuge a month earlier. The cat that had been found was indeed their cat Pistache! The small family was thrilled to have found her after she had been missing for a month.
Pistache's family would like to that Mr. Boily and his neighbours for coming to Pistache's aid and entrusting her to the Refuge, which succeeded in finding her family.
