This is Lit’l Boy, a beautiful kitty owned and loved by Elaine White in Rockwell, North Carolina. Lit’l Boy was rescued by Barbara Hart from Rowan County Animal Shelter back in January 2017 after he was turned in as a stray.
Elaine found Lit’l Boy several years ago. He was a stray who was too beautiful to be an outdoor cat but he was scared to death. Someone had been mean to him and it took awhile for Lit’l Boy to learn to trust again.
Lit’l Boy trusted Elaine but he was afraid of others. He turned from an outdoor kitty into an indoor/outdoor kitty. Unfortunately, after rain hit the area for several days Lit’l Boy was nowhere to be found. Elaine searched the woods and canvassed her neighborhood looking for him.
Then Elaine saw Lit’l Boy on the Rowan County Animal Shelter page. His available date was January 23 and that was the day Elaine went to the shelter, where she learned he’d been rescued by Barbara Hart.
When Elaine contacted Barbara she was told Lit’l Boy was theirs now and that the cat they had wasn’t her cat. Elaine offered to pay for him. Anything to get him back home where he felt safe and loved. Barbara even agreed to meet with Elaine so she would see the cat they had wasn’t even her missing cat, claiming the coat pattern and eye color was different on the cat now in their rescue.
The meeting never took place. Lit’l Boy is still out there somewhere. Elaine would like to find him and is asking those on social media to share his photo in the Rowan County area. Please do all you can to help her find her cat. It may not be possible legally to get Lit’l Boy back (I don’t know what the law is in NC), but at least Elaine can get closure in knowing he’s alive and safe.
