Epsy used to go outside and always came back, but «one day she came out through a gap in the fence and disappeared,» says her owner. This one was all the more worried that the cat had a disability that limited his movements. She was especially unable to jump.
Wendy Sivret looked for her everywhere in and around the area. She also posted a wanted ad on social media. The efforts were unsuccessful. «We all thought she was gone for good».
Before that famous Friday, September 2, 2022, that is 2 years almost before the day of his disappearance, Wendy Sivret stumbled upon photos of an Epsy-like cat, which she shared on a Facebook page dedicated to lost and found animals. The man just discovered her wandering and in bad shape.
At first, Wendy Sivret couldn’t believe it was Epsy. «She’s been gone for 2 years, it can’t be my cat,» she said to herself then. However, the veterinarian who discovered her ID chip confirmed that it was indeed her.
The cat’s fur was so tangled that it caused her terrible pain. The vets had to put her down to shave her. “She lost the tips of her ears to frostbite,” her owner adds, adding that despite everything, blood tests showed “that she was in incredible shape for an animal that had been wandering for 2 years”.
Epsy was not far from her house; she was only a few blocks away. A vision problem diagnosed by veterinarians most likely prevented her from finding her way home.
“The angels fed her and gave her some shelter,” continues Wendy Sivret, who expressed her gratitude to these merciful souls.
