A roommate of an owner of two cats was looking after them while the owner was away working. He decided that he would rather give them away so he took them to a PetSmart rescue centre and relinquished them. The owner came forward several months later to reclaim them but one of them had already been adopted at that time which caused a complication with the rescue staff. Eventually, it seems that the original owner decided to relinquish his rights to the remaining cat that he wanted to keep initially. It remains a mystery as to why the roommate gave up the cats. It almost seems like he did it in collaboration with the cats’ owner in which case why didn’t that person legitimately relinquish the cats to the rescue centre. Perhaps the roommate is a Walter Mitty type character who wanted to attract sympathy and admiration.
