NEW MEXICO – One New Mexico family did exactly what many people do when they lost a beloved pet. They went and put up signs and went out looking on their own until they got the call they had been waiting for.
Someone did indeed their lost kitten, but getting it back wasn’t so simple. The owner of the cat, who is an 11-year-old girl, put up most of the signs herself.
There was no reward listed anywhere on the signs, but the people who found the cat demanded one.
“I just don’t feel like it was fair,” the girl’s mother stated. “I don’t feel like an adult should do that to a child.”
The fliers were met with a text message response which in part read: “I had to buy her kitty food and medicine. In order for me to release the kitty, I will need a payment of $50 at the least. $50 or I can just keep the cat.”
