Following this morning’s appalling story of feline abuse, the Bay Area was in need of a good cat story.
Looks like we got it.
A stray cat picked up by the San Francisco SPCA on Thursday morning turned out to be a kitty missing since July — and the lost pet is set to be reunited with its owner on Friday.
The cat, named Putty, was located over 10 miles from where her owner Kevin Snow lives, according to the SPCA. Workers noticed that the stray cat was very friendly when they found her, so they checked the animal for any sort of identification. They found a microchip planted in Putty and were able to track down Snow’s contact information.
Putty appeared to be a busy girl on her four-month sojourn from home. According to the SPCA, it was clear that Putty had given birth to a litter of kittens while she was missing. Before Snow picks her up on Friday, she’ll be spayed at the SPCA’s clinic.
The sure-to-be-emotional reunion between pet and owner will take place at the SPCA’s spay clinic on 201 Alabama Street. Anyone on hand should be advised to bring tissues.
