A Peculiar Method of Finding Lost Your Cat

With all the affection and warmth that cats receive from their owners, I can’t imagine what would push these felines to just abandon their ever-caring masters or mistresses. Probably, they may want to have a stroll, a break or have some adventure on their own. The sad thing is, they can’t scratch notes on the wall to say - “Hey, I’m gonna be out for a day or two. I’ll come back so just relax”. The moment cats leave, we do not have a single clue as to when they would return.

Recently, Japanese Twitter user @charlie0816 got deserted by his cat. The feline had been gone for two days and he wanted to find his treasured pet. He managed to learn a unique way of finding his lost cat from someone on Twitter. He was told to talk to stray cats in the neighborhood to help him find his pet. 

“My cat escaped two days ago and didn’t return, but somebody on Twitter said, ‘Talking to cats in the neighbourhood and saying to them, ‘If you see my cat, please tell it to come home’ is an effective technique.’ So last night, I went to the local convenience store and gave it a try by speaking to the stray cats there, and then this morning our cat returned to the front of our house. Um…is it seriously this effective?”

Do you think it was just a coincidence?

This is what happened from the cat's perspective: "After months trying to teach the big creature to hunt, rest and live an independent life I thought I'd leave him alone for a few days and watch from a distance to see how he goes along, but after only two days, the poor creature was already attempting to recruit some filthy street cat in my place so I gave up and returned in acceptance that the poor creature is forever helpless."
