Nine the cat and his relieved mom Joy

"Miracles Can Happen"

The cat came back!

This is the story of Nine, the cat who came back after being lost for six months, told by his owner Joy Lees of Virden.

On May 17, 2022, my cat Nine, went missing from around Ice Cream Island in Virden. I spent the next few weeks biking around town every day looking for him.

I asked everyone I knew to keep an eye out for him and put multiple posts up on Facebook for him. I searched every lost pet group that I could find in the area with no luck.

Then I got a call from my friend's mom. She told me that Nine was sneaking in her doggie door at night and during the day when she wasn't home! He had finally warmed up to her enough that he ended up crawling in bed with her the night before! She figured out that it was him for sure.

Thank you Kellie Flannery for bringing my Nine home to me six months later!!

Miracles can happen and I want to thank Kellie (and her neighbor) for feeding him for the last while, Rick Walker for tirelessly watching for him and sending me every post he saw with black cats in it, and the Virden Pet Network for putting up with my endless messages to them in regards to cats that I thought were maybe Nine and also for posting his missing ad over and over for me.

He's glad to be home and Kat and I are even more glad to have him home!!
