Hi catster. My cat and I are recovering from a very unique trip.
living as a broke blogger my dayjob is bicycling, and when i can wwebsite as on the internet i put up cat gifs, cat videos and cat pictures! We have crossed 700 miles from oklahoma to Albuquerque, raising awareness and visiting local animal shelters. during the trip we have been camping the entire way, couchsurfing when we could, especially in cities.
Then,the worst happened.
Pikachu was lost in a group ride- on the way to a photoshoot.


albu querque started to search for pika
he was 18 days lost in the world, chasing down every lead that we recieved.

We live in Albuquerque and were so happy when Pikachu was finally found! What a stroke of luck that person had to go into the shed and found Pikachu in there.

How is Pikachu? He looks good in the video when you were reunited.

Welcome to Catster! welcome

I am glad he was found!
I would suggest keeping a harness and leash on at all times so he can't get lost again (most pet trailers have a hook to attach the leash, if that's what you are using.)
I hope you tested him for diseases and internal parasites and such, and hopefully he was on a heartworm preventive?
My friend's cat was missing for a month and caught Feline Leukemia.
Unfortunately my friend didn't know and her other cat ended up catching it from him too. frown
