How ‘Mow Mow’ Found His Way Home

The stars were aligned today when Shannon and Allie of Chautauqua County decided to make a spur-of-the-moment visit to the SPCA. They began by looking at the cats who were available for adoption when they noticed a familiar face.

“I went into the room and called his name,” Shannon said. “He looked right up at me.”

It turns out Mow Mow had been missing for two years from Shannon’s Cherry Creek home.

Mow Mow was brought to the SPCA on January 14 after being abandoned with eight other cats in a Buffalo home. While at the SPCA, he was vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped.

When he first arrived, he was apprehensive of his new surroundings. You would often find him cuddled up in his favorite cat house in one of our cat condo rooms.

Fortunately, Mow Mow’s favorite cat house was in the wash this morning so he didn’t have his favorite spot to snuggle in. Instead, he was out on a cat bed when Shannon and Allie walked by.

“It was clear right away that Mow Mow was their cat,” said Cary Munschauer, SPCA senior cat behaviorist. “It was an emotional reunion!”

While Mow Mow was hesitant to tell us about his adventures these past two years, we’re so happy that this family was reunited at the SPCA!
