Fe­line friend hap­pily re­united

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A HAYES cat-lover was de­lighted to have her Per­sian kit­ten re­turned by a mem­ber of the pub­lic.

60-year-old Jean Pope, who lives with her hus­band on Rayn­ton Drive in Hayes, was wor­ried her pet was taken from her drive­way af­ter she went miss­ing on Tues­day 29 Septem­ber.

Mrs Pope con­tacted the Gazette and an­i­mal char­i­ties in a bid to find beloved So­phie, her 11-month-old Per­sian kit­ten.

Then on Oc­to­ber 12 they re­ceived a phone call to say the miss­ing kit­ten had been spot­ted a few streets away.

She said: “I re­ceived a tele­phone call from a young man, James Ver­ity, now our lo­cal hero, also from Hayes area, to say that he’d seen a kit­ten that looked like So­phie.

“She was be­hind a gate a cou­ple of roads away. I rushed up there, with a good friend and my hus­band, and to our joy, we dis­cov­ered it was in­deed our miss­ing kit­ten.

“She had lost some weight over the last two weeks, but not too much, and her coat was clean, so it looked like some­one may have looked af­ter her and fed her for a while.

“She was very ner­vous and miaow­ing af­ter her or­deal, but has thank­fully re­cov­ered now. It’s so great to have her home, my hus­band and I were over the moon!”
