Technology helped us find our lost cat!

Want a crazy story with a tech twist? Read on...

Somebody was at a party on Halloween in our neighborhood
(when our cat disappeared) and went around to a few parties only to discover a cat in their car when they returned home to St. Paul (9 miles away) and so they kept the cat a week or so and put up signs in St. Paul, eventually leaving her outside an animal shelter.

Someone saw my wife's ad on
Craigslist which stated that we had lost a cat on Halloween and called to say he had seen signs up in St. Paul for a cat that had been found on Halloween. He gave my wife the number of the guy who had found the cat and he gave her the name of the animal shelter where he had left her and she went on their website and lo and behold there was a picture of our dear Lottie starring back at us. We will pick her up tonight. Happy ending. And my wife = very happy! Technology can be your friend!
