Help Wanted

A list serve I belong to, posted this today.


My name is Karen, I currently live in southwest Georgia. I am
originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and when I moved a year
ago I had to leave my 4 precious kitties at a kennel. I had no idea
it would take this long to get my green card for the USA but they
have been at the kennel all this time and last week I found out that
the kennel owner placed them with the Winnipeg Humane Society without
telling me.
I have contacted the humane society and they informed me that they
only have the younger 2 of the cats and had no idea where the others
Oliver is a 2 yo tabby, Beau is 1.5 yo part persian. They are best
friends and I have begged them to please give me the opportunity to
try to get them to me before they are adopted out. They have agreed
to wait.
Mozart and JoJo were located at another kennel for long-haired cats
as they are also part persian. They are littermates, brother and
sister and are 13 years old. These 4 cats are my pride and joy and I
desperately want them back.
They have all their shots, not sure if the 2 young ones were neutered
or not, I did put in a request for that from the kennel vet but they
never answered me. Mozart and JoJo are both neutered and spayed
Please if anyone can help me get my babies out of those places, I
would be eternally grateful. I can't bear to go much longer without
I would be willing to have them fostered or adopted out if I had a
say in who got them, but right now that doesn't seem possible.

If you have any means of helping me whatsoever, or have any
questions, please reply to this post or e-mail me at
I appreciate your feedback and any suggestions.

Thank you.

Karen should just go see a lawyer or community legal clinic.

This is VERY sad, but if the cats were at the kennel for a year and there were unpaid bills or lack of contact, the kennel would consider the cats to be abandoned.:(

Of course, if the bills were paid up and this person was in touch with the kennel, she would certainly have a case.

I hope she finds these babies.:(
