Special bond broken
For Kylie Thomas, losing her cat has been a major blow. Mico went missing on April 26. The 18-year-old suffers from chronic fatigue syndrome and is wheelchair-bound.
“He has been my companion through the hardest of times. He is the best thing that has come into my life since being sick.”
She says the tiredness is completely different to what a normal person would experience.
“It was out of the blue – when I was 15,” she says. “I was in Starship for a long time.
“Mico is no ordinary cat to me,” says Miss Thomas. “He was abandoned after he was born and he and his brothers were found deserted on a pallet.
“A lady found them and handreared them until they were a few weeks old.
“So right from the start, he was a different cat,” she says.
She has had the cat for just over two years and developed a special bond with Mico.
“From the moment he crawled up on to my chest, gave my face a big nudge and nuzzled into my neck, I knew I had found my cat.”
Miss Thomas has searched extensively for Mico, travelling the streets of Onehunga in her wheelchair. Mico was last spotted on Jackson St on April 30 and May 2.
Miss Thomas says he is a half white and half brown tabby with no collar.
