We all know how that famous saying goes, “curiosity killed the cat.” Thankfully it didn’t kill this cat, but it did take him on a big adventure, 2,000 miles across the country!
Sebastian is a Utah cat, born and breed, a fact that is not up for dispute. One sunny day he found the perfect spot to take a catnap. On a semi-truck parked up in Salt Lake City. It was warm, it was sunny, so why not?
Little did unsuspecting Sebastian know the driver of this semi had no plans to stay in Salt Lake City, nor was he going to stay in the state of Utah. And he definitely had no idea he had a stowaway on board.
No, this truck would be behind the wheel until he reached Marianna, Florida! Taking this napping feline on a journey of over 2,000 miles from his home and his family!
Now Partners for Pets, a Florida-based animal rescue group, has been charged with the difficult task of tracking down Sebastian’s original family, which would have been a cinch if the animal was microchipped. (Spoiler alert: he isn’t).
Regardless, staff are determined to find Sebastian’s owners by spreading this curious cat’s mug shot far and wide.
“Sebastian is a gorgeous boy who ended up a long way from home,” Partners for Pets wrote in a Facebook post. “He is a very sweet, friendly guy! Wish there was a way to find his owners in Utah!” This cat is not up for adoption,” the Florida group clarified in a statement.
“We will try our best to find his rightful owners first.” You can help find Sebastian’s Utah family by sharing this story on Facebook. And please, people, microchip your animals, especially if you’re parenting an inquisitive outdoor cat!
