Well-fed Oliver is back after a year
MUNGUNGO adventurer Oliver has recently returned from a mystery gap year, and is willing to share his home with a new family.
When the Eriksson family moved out of their home in November 2013, they placed Oliver with friends 20km out of Monto.
Within a week, the fluffy grey and white feline had decided to leave home and didn’t return until last November, owner Sandra Eriksson said.
While the Eriksson family and their friends tried to find him, they finally resolved he was lost until his surprise return.
“We’d gone back to the house (last November) and he was on the verandah waiting for us,” Ms Eriksson said.
“Monto is only a small place.
“The only time we knew that he was being fed... was about a week before we got back.
“He was obviously well-fed; he’s still friendly and not feral.”
As the Erikssons have made a new home in Gladstone – and are about to sail to the Kimberleys and beyond – they are seeking a new home for Oliver.
“It’s so sad that he’s gone to all that trouble to find us again, but he doesn’t like water, so no point bringing him on board,” Ms Eriksson said.
With the Mungungo family home available for rent, Ms Eriksson said Oliver could have a new life at home – with the right family.
The Erikssons would also be delighted to hear from any family who cared for Oliver during his year of adventure. Ms Eriksson – and Oliver – can be phoned on 0429 896 223.
