3 legged cat found

Recommended Posts

I am sharing this here in the hope that the British owners can be traced.  

The fact that the cat has no chip could mean that the owners are resident in France.  

"SOS appeal to find the owners of a cat recently found in a service station in Normandy, France but whose owners tragically can not be traced. We are also appealing for people with contacts in the UK media to help get this story covered. Full details below.
Some British people travelling in a camper van lost their 3-legged tortoiseshell cat (one leg had been amputated) in July this year (2023) at a service station called “Aire des Haras au Sap André 61” on the A28 Autoroute (motorway) in Normandy, France.
They returned to the service area several times to look for her and left posters in the petrol station and food area.
In August, on one of their visits, they were told that a tortoiseshell cat had been found run over and killed in the area and it was thought to be their cat. After this they stopped going back there and the posters were all thrown away.
However we now know that the cat who was run over had 4 legs so wasn’t their cat.
Fast forward to early November (a few days ago) and a truck driver (who it turns out was there when the British people lost the cat originally so knew all about her) pulls into the service station and finds her. He’s sure it’s her since she has 3 legs, just like the missing cat. He picks her up and contacts local rescue groups who take her to the vet only to find that she doesn’t have a chip (and an X-ray is done to ensure the chip hasn’t migrated and shows definitively that there is no chip). So there is no way of contacting the owners other than to appeal on social media which has been done but the owners haven’t been located.
We do not know if the owners live in France or the UK. The fact that she doesn’t have a chip leads us to believe that they may live in France but we also know that on rare occasions microchips fall out.
I am hoping that the media will cover this story and help us to reunite her with her family. And please everybody share as far and wide as possible on social media.
