When Boo, a nine-year-old short-haired cat, climbed out of the window of her Streatham, south London home, her family assumed she would never return. For the most part, that appeared to be true as the months passed. Jelena and Denis’s family cat had died, and the agony of that truth was all too real.
The couple had formerly resided in Herne Hill, 3 miles away, and the pair assumed Boo had traveled there, believing it was the place she needed to return to. Unfortunately, they were unable to locate their prized puss. They had no idea she was only a short distance away in Clapham…
Boo managed to survive in Clapham, 3.2 miles away from her family, because to the genuine generosity of several local nuns who fed her scraps. That is, until they were evicted and forced to live on the streets.
This is going to be an emotional story about this cute feline and her journey will touch your heart. Please check out Boo’s happy ending and don’t forget to share your feelings with us at the comment section below.
When the nuns were kicked out, a local mechanic scoured the neighborhood for the stray cat. He was worried that no one would look after the adorable little kid. He brought her to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home when he found her because he feared she was pregnant!
Since their first stray dog in 1860, Battersea has saved over 3 million pets! Boo was being looked after by the crew and was in excellent hands.
After all, the local mechanic was correct, and Boo was indeed pregnant.
Boo was examined for a microchip in the safety of Battersea. Boo had a chip on his shoulder! However, because the contact information provided was outdated, the dedicated team was unable to locate her relatives.
Instead of unpleasant shelters, Battersea sends pregnant pets to foster homes, and while in her foster home, Boo gave birth to a brood of kittens! Boomer, Bootsy, and Bolt were the cutest, fluffiest kittens you’d ever seen.
Kayla, Battersea’s foster coordinator, assisted Boo in finding a home. She then went to a website where pet owners frequently post about their missing dogs! She came upon a description of a missing cat and a photo that purrfectly matched Boo while browsing.
When Kayla contacted Jelena and Denis, they were able to effectively verify Boo was their cat!
Battersea’s feline welfare manager Joanna Puzzo said in an interview with Metro:
“When Boo first came to Battersea, we had no idea how many twists and turns her story would take. It truly is a miracle that it has such a happy ending. We’re all ecstatic that adorable Boo will be spending Christmas with her family, and we hope she’ll take a well-deserved break from her crazy travels.”
“Boo is not just a sweet story, but it’s also a good reminder to pet owners to get their pets microchipped and keep their information up to date so that we can reunite them with their frightened owners as soon as possible.”
