An Illinois trucker’s cat recently escaped and went missing at a truck stop in Nevada . . . and turned up five days later at a shelter 670 miles away in Wyoming. They think he must have hitched a ride with another truck driver. The shelter worked with volunteers and got the cat home in time for New Year’s Eve………………………Here’s another cat that was a little closer to home: A cat in England named Duke just showed back up after going missing seven years ago in 2017. So where was he? He’d been living in a factory 900 feet from his owner’s house. He ended up at a vet, who knocked on the owner’s door with good news. She’s since adopted a dog and had another kid, so she thought it would be best to find him a new home, but she’s in contact with the new owner and gets regular updates…..And finally……….
An animal shelter in Poland begged people to temporarily adopt its dogs last Friday, because some of their pens were outdoors and it was supposed to dip down to around four below zero. People immediately showed up in droves, waited in line for hours, and took 120 dogs home with them. City police showed up to manage the traffic outside the shelter, and ended up taking a dog back to headquarters with them.
