Guy Mantha and his wife Linda Jardine-Mantha of Toronto had their air-conditioning unit changed out in June. It was about that time that their cat Stuffi went missing. Stuffi usually hides from strangers, so they assumed she was hiding from the A/C guys and would come back eventually. But she didn’t, and Jardine-Mantha posted notices about her missing cat. After a few days, she started hearing noises coming from inside the house, but could not find the source. Even a search with an infrared camera detected nothing.
Last Friday, Jardine-Mantha could hear sounds inside the house again.
"She called me at work and she said I think I heard it inside the wall ... oh my god, I said," Mantha said.
They called the friend with the infrared camera and began another search.
They broke a hole in the wall in the closet, and they put a light in there. Her husband's friend looked in and saw the cat.
"So they ripped out the wall and sure enough she was in there, all scrunched up, where she'd been for three and a half weeks, and so we rushed her to the hospital," she said.
