Do you know who owned me?
AMY MILLER/TIMES NEWS A domestic long hair cat, which the Carbon County Friends of Animals shelter volunteers named Arthur, is seen in his cage at CCFOA. He was put into a taped up cardboard box and left on the shelter's doorstep over the weekend. CCFOA is looking for information on the previous owner of the feline.
Carbon County Friends of Animals needs your help to find out who dropped this cat, which they named Arthur, off outside the shelter in Jim Thorpe sometime between late Friday night and early Saturday morning.
Volunteers at the shelter explained that the box was found on Saturday morning by Denise Sebelin, owner of Deezines Flowers and president of CCFOA, as she opened her store.
The unknown person put the cat into a cardboard box and placed the taped up box outside the shelter. The box was not fully secured and the cat escaped. He was found under the shed outside the front of CCFOA, which is located only yards away from Route 209 in Jim Thorpe.
A second cat that has been seen under the shed was believed to also be in the box that was dropped off. Numerous attempts to catch that cat have been unsuccessful to date.
The domestic long hair cat is declawed and they believe neutered, but volunteers are unable to examine him at this time because he is very scared. They believe he was someone's pet prior to being dropped off.
Carbon County Friends of Animals is asking that if anyone recognizes this cat and knows who owned it to contact the shelter at (570) 325-9400.
