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.
