Pets have a tendency to run away. Oliver is a house cat who rarely leaves his home in Mountain Home, Idaho, but he still managed to slip outside on his own and get lost in the woods.
His family was perplexed, but they didn’t have the luxury of time to consider his escape strategy. Instead, they were preoccupied with concern and the search for him.
Because he had not been implanted with a tracking device, the search became considerably more difficult. The only thing the family could do was distribute fliers across the area and publish messages on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.
A few days later, someone tracked down Oliver in Alberton, Montana (365 miles away) and discovered he had been abducted. A person who discovered him bathed him since he was filthy and then brought him to AniMeals, an adoption agency in Missoula, Montana, where he was placed for adoption.
As AniMeals said, “the lady who discovered him stated he was pretty unclean, so she gave him a wash and brought him to use on the 24th.”
Oliver had been mentioned on the AniMeals social media website by the company’s employees. Unbelievably, one of their fans saw the message and got in touch with Oliver’s proprietors. It has proven that social media may be beneficial in certain ways.
If it hadn’t been for them, Oliver would never have found his way back home. He was very fortunate.
It’s a wonder how Oliver was able to go such a long distance in such a short period of time. Several people from AniMeals speculated that the cat had taken a ride in their vehicle.
But did someone get him inside the vehicle, or was the driver completely oblivious that he had a stowaway? With the exception of Oliver, no one knows for certain.
Following notification of Oliver’s whereabouts, the family embarked on an eight-hour road trip to reach the refuge. Rachael Bush, his owner, was devastated when he was taken away from her. Her closest buddy was on his way back to her house.
“And I requested to unlock the cage, and I knew straight away it was Oliver,” she said in an interview with KTVB7. The best buddy that everyone has is a best friend, and Oliver was mine. The only thing I was lacking was a sense of belonging; it didn’t seem like home without Oliver. ”
