Burmese Cat Rescued From Strangers Garage After Missing For 8 Weeks.

Burmese cat rescue
Burmese cat rescue

Evie the cuddly Burmese cat has an incredible survival tale. Prompting us to share this Burmese cat rescue story.

Shortly after moving with her owners to a new rural property, Evie went missing.

The owners had intended for Evie to get used to her new home for at least a week or two before going outside. However, “Evie is incredibly smart and quick’ her owners say. “She loves being outside”.

After only a few days of being in their new home, Evie found her way outside an open door.

Evie had never lived on a rural lifestyle block location before. “One of the dogs quickly spooked her before we could get her inside and that was it, she was gone” the owner’s relay.

“We didn’t panic for the first day or two, Evie is an intelligent cat and she also has a lot of sass”

Evie had been known to sulk with her owners, especially if something didn’t go her way, generally hiding in her igloo and occasionally disappearing for a little while.

‘We were hopeful she would make her way back once she had cooled off”

Still, every-night we searched, called for her, and we put food out for her. In case she decided to come back in the calm of the night

missing cat

After 2 days, Evie’s Owners decided she was now defiantly lost. They were devastated.

We did everything called vet clinics, spread pamphlets, advertised everywhere we could, and called all the local cat shelters. Nothing.

Evie was nowhere to be found.
‘We felt sick every night and especially when it would rain’ Her owners said.

“We got desperate, we created pamphlets, begging if someone had found her and decided to keep her. Could they anonymously come forward and let us know”

‘I couldn’t stop checking roadkill every night wondering” ‘We just needed to know if someone had her and that she was ok’

Burmese Cat Rescue

8 long weeks of torture had passed, when the owners got the best phone call they could ever have hoped for.

A couple had come back from their holiday in Europe, to find a very skinny and pissed off Evie locked in their garage.

They Took Evie to the nearest vet clinic, as she was very malnourished. Evie was micro-chipped so it didn’t take long for the vet clinic to track down Evie’s Owners.

‘ It was an amazing feeling, the relief is indescribable, We had never given up, we just felt she was still out there and thankfully we were right”

Evie was very underweight and dehydrated. She had I/V fluids at the vet clinic before finally coming home.

“She was so hungry!, she slept in the food bowl waiting for her next small meal”. Evie’s owners had to feed Evie gradually in small amounts so her little stomach could get used to small volumes of food again.

4. Ragdoll

Another personal favourite and if only up to me they would be at the top of the best cat breeds.
