No, he wasn’t a blue light special. In Willow Street, Pennsylvania this week, an orange tabby was abandoned in a carrier in a K-Mart bathroom. He was found along with note from a girl named Elsie, that said that she said her family was moving and she wasn’t allowed to keep the cat, whose name was Boo Boo. Elsie thought the store would be a good place for the cat to keep warm.
Fortunately for Boo Boo, Joyce Eshelman, a cat-loving store manager, quickly adopted him. “I called my husband and I said, ‘You got to come look at him. He’s beautiful,’ and he did and we decided to take him and hopefully everything will work out,” she said.
A vet gave Boo Boo a clean bill of health, and he is happily settled in to his new home.
