Have you seen this kitty? He's a survivor of the Arkansas tornadoes that devastated Vilonia April 27. This Facebook thread tells his story.
This sweet kitty's owner got a call from a man saying he took Little Mud Digger to his friends house on Prince Street in Conway because they had a screened in porch he could stay in.
Little Mud Digger doesn't respond to his name, unfortunately. He hasn't been neutered, and isn't microchipped or wearing a collar.
Does anyone recognize this man or know where this cat is? I was told that this man is a volunteer fire fighter. Digger was found in Black Oak after the tornado on Sunday. The owner was informed Digger was taken to Vilonia Animal Clinic, but they told her he's not there with them.
This Facebook group page is assisting, with information on rescue groups, where to have pets scanned or treated and other up to date information. Residents who find an animal are asked to hold onto it until it's owner is located.
Please leave a phone number where you can be reached. Don't depend on people being able to reach you on Facebook.
Also remember to be very careful who you release a "found" pet to. Sadly, in other disasters, people have taken advantage of the situation and taken custody of pets that did not belong to them.
People who have lost everything don't need to deal with nefarious folks also.. These disasters bring out people who scam, so please beware.
Examiner articles are updated and private info removed after pets are reunited with family.
