This is the story of Puff
Once in a while, something quite unique and wonderful happens.
On February 18, 2009 we got a call from a family who was missing a cat named Puff. The story was he had taken a ride to Donnellson, Illinois in hay bales. We entered this in our missing animal file.
On April 8, 2009 we got a call from a woman in Donnellson. A stray showed up on her doorstep about two weeks ago. It was thin and seemed to be friendly. She could not keep it as she had other cats and started calling around to find a home for the cat, with no luck. She finally called an agency in St Louis who was willing to take it, but she kept thinking it belonged to someone close by. She called Bond County Humane Society... and on conversation, the missing animal file was reviewed and we found that a cat had taken a ride to Donnellson in hay bales.
Guess what... It was a match! She was happy to have Puff returned to the owners and the owners were very happy to get their cat back.
Once in a while something nice happens. And this was one of those times.
