The social media sharing community has been trying to get this sweet kitty reunited with his owner ever since he was found in Franklin, Kentucky back in mid-July. Someone out there has to know of a Michigan cat owner whose cat escaped when she stopped at a truck stop in Franklin.
A lady from Michigan made a stop at Flying J Truck Stop, Premier Trucking in mid-July. Her cat made a quick escape from her car and the lady wasn’t able to stay for an extended search. She left her information with the truck stop but it was thrown away after a couple of days. She did state for certain that she’s from Michigan and the owner also called before her cat was rescued. Since then, nothing.
The lost kitty was found around July 15, 2019 and it’s now been more than a month he’s been away from his owner. He’s neutered but not microchipped. Oh how much easier this would have been if he’d been chipped!

Jill and her husband found the cat near the area of I-65 and Route 31. The cat is at least 430 miles from home and his owner could be from Metro Detroit all the way to the Upper Peninsula.
It’s going to take teamwork within the cat advocacy community to find the lady. The cat is at the very least This article needs to be shared with as many people as possible.
