The Tale of Tails
Oh, if this cat could talk. It would tell great tales about how it’s tail got all the way to Las Vegas. Originally from Birmingham, Alabama, this little feline got lost back in December 2021. Her owner noticed her missing and immediately started searching for her pet.
Tracy Cost was brokenhearted when Raven, wandered away from home. Cost had raised Raven since she was a kitten. She searched when Raven went missing but never found her. She finally gave up and thought she’d never see Raven again.
Far From Home
Fast forward a year and two months and good old Raven is back. But this time not in Alabama. This world traveling kitty was found in Las Vegas! That’s nearly 2,000 miles away from home. According to 8newsnow, a local resident discovered her and took her in. Elizabeth McGloin found Raven near I-215 and Losee Road.
And here’s where the moral of the story comes in. Microchip your animals! Because Raven was microchipped, she was able to be scanned. Much to their surprise, a local animal rescue saw that Raven was far from home. They called Cost. Who probably fell off of her chair. Her long lost pet was found after more than a year lost.
Since hearing Raven‘s story, people have been flocking to help. Some offering to pay for Raven‘s trip home. Other offering to take the cat home themselves.
A nonprofit organization called Imagine Home is taking charge of getting Raven back to her owner. Imagine Home specializes in transporting cats in a relay-style method. They put a cat in the care of a trusted volunteer, who transports the pet a specific distance until they meet another volunteer. Rinse and repeat until the animal gets to where they need to go.
So, after a doctor check-up, Raven is going home. All is well that ends well. But, one question remains unanswered. How the heck does a cat get from Alabama to Las Vegas?
