I

didn’t know what to do to capture her and bring her home. The groundskeeper looked each day, and she would run from him every time he tried to catch her. He suggested I go to the local animal shelter and rent a live cat trap. I did, and the next day, I finally succeeded and brought her home.

I immediately took her to the vet, and they said the first week was the most critical because she was in such bad shape. She was dehydrated and had lost 3 pounds. I brought her back to life, and she now is doing so much better under my watchful eye. It’s a miracle that she made it through six weeks of cold, ice storms and all other weather conditions. She is my little angel.

— Marvin and Cindy Alsept, Oklahoma City
