Shootin' the Breeze

and random targets

Mistaken Identity

I have written previously about acquiring a cat who disappeared for nearly four months.  Then my wife, Sugar, saw a photo of a cat at the post office.  Someone had found a cat and was looking for its owners.  Sugar recognized it as our cat and we went to retrieve it.

I don’t believe it is our former cat.  Sugar says that it is. 

The cat we now have looks a lot like the cat we lost, but with one difference, which is a difference that I consider significant.  The cat we retrieved is an un-neutered male.  The cat we lost was allegedly a spayed female.  Sugar has decided that was a mistaken description.  She thinks we were misinformed originally when we “rescued” the cat we first had. 

Whether or not this is a case of mistaken identity, the cat is here and I will just shut up.

  1. The silence part, you are a wise man! Seems as if the cat is going to stay either way.

    Ha! Just a little worried that the cat was on the most wanted list in the post office…

  3. Uh-Oh! An un-neutered one will be hard to keep home … and he’ll leave an unpleasant scent while he meanders, too. Good luck!

  4. Haven’t you heard, good sir? Do not be alarmed. It is likely Ms. Sugar’s cat was a patient somewhere; vets now perform sex change operations on such cats when they meow for it.
