Walter takes a ride

September 13, 2012
The Mining Journal

To the Journal editor:

On Aug. 22, my cat, Walter, decided to help himself to the great outdoors. I posted flyers all over my neighborhood with his picture, rescue and reward information.

On Sept. 3, I received a telephone call from my gracious neighbor who told me that she believed Walter was under her SUV which happened to be parked at Econo Foods.

Did I mention we live on Wildwood Drive in Harvey? Apparently Walter must have hid under her vehicle and took a ride to the store.

My neighbor told me that without the help of strangers grabbing an empty box to put Walter in from the store (he is a large Maine coon weighing in at 17 pounds) and helping round him up from under the vehicle, she doubts his rescue would have been so smooth.

I was so overwhelmed to see his beautiful face peering out at me from the box when I ripped it open that I ran to our vehicle and raced home with him without acknowledging anyone.

So I write to thank my gracious neighbor for noticing that my cat bummed a ride into town with her and to those strangers who helped her and waited for our arrival.

My thanks to you is immeasurable as Walter means the world to me.
