I rescued these brothers in October of 2016. Both these cats are Curious/ Clowns, however Pi is a little more shy and reserved. They both settled in to farm life beautifully. I did often worry about them because they like to get into vehicles if a door or window is open…….. then on October 23 2017 a boarder was bringing her horses to drop off and it was late at night, so we quickly unloaded them and she was on her way. The next morning when I went to the barn, I did not see Loki or Pi. This was very unusual as the cats were always there waiting for me. When I came home from work and they were not there I began to worry. I called the woman that brought the horses and asked her if she had seen the cats. She told me she had cleaned the trailer out and delivered the trailer back to the person that loaned it to her and did not see the cats. She did notice there were cat paw prints on her tack box, but never saw the cats. By now I was panicking. I didn’t know for sure if one or both cats got in the trailer or if they jumped out along the way or went all the way to her home, which was 7 miles away and across a busy road. I began putting Facebook requests out and began going to her house every morning and every evening and calling them. I put up posters with pictures of Pi and Loki and continued to search on foot. I got a call of a sighting and I put out a trap with food. Exactly one week later on October 30th I got a call from a woman that one of the cats was at her house and she had been feeding him for the past week. It was Loki. He went about a ½ mile up the road and found a house on a hill with a Pit-bull and 2 cats and a sweet lady that fed him. I was so happy and Loki came running when I called him. Still no Pi. I continued to look for the next 2 weeks and no luck.
On Saturday Nov. 11, 2007, I went down to the barn and was feeding who I thought was Loki and it turned out Pi was home. I thought I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. He was so hungry and had lost weight, but he was home! I hope this will help with your research. It is amazing how he found his way home as he has never left our farm. It’s also amazing the two cats went in totally different directions.
Thank you. .
