So Natalia was a pet at some point, since she has been spayed and tattooed? I guess it wasn’t a traceable tattoo and no chip. Thank goodness she was found, and hopefully she has a new family coming soon.
When I hear stories like Natalia’s I always worry if there actually is a good, heart-broken, family who had something awful happen (careless workmen in the house leaving a door open, careless cat-sitter, etc.) and is truly missing that sweet kitty. Is there a “lost pet” FB page or something like that down there?
The tattoo that the spay/neuter clinic does is just a green line that confirms that the cat has been spayed/neutered, in case there’s any question. I haven’t seen the tattoo on Natalia (because she doesn’t stop squirming around), but I assume it’s similar. She wasn’t chipped, and I’ve been watching the Lost & Found FB pages (and scrolled back through the beginning of October) and haven’t seen any missing cats who look like her. She’s very clearly been someone’s pet in the past, I wish she could tell us her story. (This is why I highly recommend microchipping your kitties!)
