Disciples of Otis,
Brother Oliver here. The other day, when the Guardians brought home the photo of the lost chicken poster, they also brought home photos of two lost cat posters. The first was a handwritten note with no photo, but the words say everything you need to know about what can happen when a kitty is not safely confined.
The second post the Guardians photographed announced that Pablo is missing. According to the poster, Pablo is less than a year old and may not be “street smart”. Brother Henry, Sir Thomas, and I were trying to figure out if people really believe a cat can become “street smart”. Sir Thomas said, “I lived on the street for a year. I did not become ‘street smart’, I just became afraid all the time. There is nothing smart about letting your cat roam the streets.” Brother Henry and I agreed.
I hope these are the last missing cat posters that ever have to be made, but unless there is a sudden, significant change in human thinking and behavior I know they will not be. Please do your part to ensure that your own kitties never join the ranks of the missing, and please continue to join us in our efforts to keep all cats happy, healthy, and safely confined.
In Otis’s name,
