One Cat at a Time—Missy Pruitt Chastain gets to know homeless cats, learns their likes and dislikes, then finds them a good home with a good owner. Over the past three years, the cat matchmaker has found homes for over 700 cats. Many were adopted out through her La Gattara Cat Cafe in the East Valley (Ariz.), says AZfamily.com. However, the pandemic forced the cafe to close. Despite the setback, Chastain still goes out, rescues cats, cares for them, and then adopts them out. To help with her expenses, a friend went to the local CBS 5 News Pay It Forward program to help the kind cat lady. They responded, surprising Chastain with a $500 gift card.
Cat Shoe Burglar—Jordan the cat lives in Altoona, Pa., and steals shoes, reports ABC27.com. He’s traveled up to seven miles on his evening journeys, collecting shoes left outside and bringing them home. He has over 50 and most are in pairs, reports his owner BJ Ross. Ross says if he brings only one shoe back, the next night he’ll go get the other. Ross put a GPS tracker on Jordan’s collar, installed a camera in her backyard, and created a Facebook group with over 2,000 people following Jordan’s collecting.
