I got a call from the Warrenville Police Department today. One of the family cats, Lightning, spent the night in cat jail for wandering a mile from our home without any rabies tags.
Wandering around -- definitely.
No rabies tags? He did have them on his collar -- but the collar was gone when he was found.
I talked with Lightning about where he lost is collar, but he's stubborn -- he won't give up any information.
He wouldn't talk to the animal control workers either, but the AVID chip that he got as a kitten from the Fox Valley Animal Welfare League gave him away. Now he's at home -- grounded until we decide what to do about the lost collar and rabies tag. We also have to figure out how to have him reimburse us for his $38 bail.
I hope he learns from this experience.
