Have you ever wondered where your cat goes when she wanders away from your own front yard? Other than outfitting her with a miniature GoPro mounted on a tiny helmet, you may never know — at least not until you get a letter from one of the neighbors.
A Reddit user named goldenstate30 shared a picture of a letter that he said his girlfriend’s cat brought home after a recent stroll through the neighborhood.
The full text of the letter — which was only signed with a drawing of a cat — reads:
I don’t know who this cat belongs to but she comes [and] visits us every few weeks. She’ll meow outside our back door until we let her in, she wounds [sic] herself around our legs, walks around the house like it’s hers, waits @ the fridge until my husband or I feed her baloney. She doesn’t like soft cat food very much! We look forward to her visits. We lost our 21 yr old cat this yr.
Some commenters have responded that their own cats have come back with letters attached, and one person admitted to pinning a note to the collar of a cat he’d seen around his place.
“A month later it was still there,” the commenter wrote. “I found him a new home.”
Others have suggested securing $20 to the cat’s collar to cover her bologna costs, while others would like to know the identity of the note’s author, so that maybe someone could give her a new kitten. Either way, we hope that the original poster will write a letter in response — and we’d also like to know whether any of our own neighbors freely hand out slices of lunchmeat.
