Cats Refuse To Accept The Fact That Sometimes Humans Really Need Some Personal Space

Published on July 31, 2021

No matter how much you try to explain to cats that people need their personal space from time to time, you will never succeed in convincing them. Cats will almost always get all up in your personal space.

Often without even warning you, a cat will just pop up out of nowhere and get as personally close to you as possible. With cats, it doesn’t even matter the activity you happen to be doing.

Cats are also kind of confusing. Once you decide to show a cat a little bit of affection, Sometimes your cat will reject it immediately.

That’s probably why the moment you start ignoring a cat, that’s when they’ll begin following you everywhere. Although sometimes, your cat will follow you and ignore you at the same time.

Research suggests that cats and dogs go missing with practically equal rates, but that doesn’t feel very comforting when your own cat goes missing. After awhile, it’s also hard to cling to hope that your cat will return home.

Losing a pet is one of the most stressful things we can experience in life. The more time passes, the less chance there is to find the lost animal.

But miracles do happen, and if you’re looking for inspiration that your long-lost cat may still have a chance at coming home then look no further than this family from Stowmarket, Suffolk. This family was very fortunate to be reunited with their adopted cat seven years after she went missing.

The 13-year-old tortoiseshell cat named Kiki finally found her owners after she disappeared back in 2013. The cat was found by a kind stranger who took her to My Family Vets at Thurston Vets. They’ve checked the cat’s microchip and got the owners’ address, and they were living just 10 miles away.

One day, the Lapthorne family got an unexpected call. “It was a typical Monday morning,” says Simon Lapthorne, “I was at my desk working when the phone rang, and a vet told me Kiki had been brought to them as a stray. I was flabbergasted, really!”

The staff informed Mr. Lapthorne that the cat was very cold, skinny, and had a wound on her side. “They were excellent,” he recalls. “Keen to ensure she was in good condition before she went home.”

The vet kept Kiki in for observation, and Mr. Lapthorne and his wife were able to take her home later that day on 9th November. “Of course, we took a detour to our local pet shop on the way,” says the finance expert and father of four.

“For a long time, we’d stopped believing she’d come back. She was never one for cuddling up by the fire – she’s always been adventurous. We’re delighted to have her back with us now.”

The main lesson from this adventure is that If it wasn’t for microchipping, Kiki would never have been reunited with her family.

“This is a great example of why microchipping is such a good idea. It would have been impossible to reunite us otherwise,” Simon concludes.

Kiki’s parents are understandably pleased to have their friend back, and we’re sure Kiki is just as excited to be finally going home. “I’d love to know what she’s been up to for the past seven years,” Simon stated.
