Camo went on a wild ride as a stowaway in a box spring


Camo the cat went on a wild ride as a stowaway in a box spring sold on Craigslist in Portland, but now he’s back home after a frantic 10-day search.

The story of Camo the lost cat went viral after Roy Dufek first posted about it on Reddit. In an interview with KPTV last week, he said the whole ordeal started when he attempted to help his girlfriend sell her bed in preparation for the couple moving into a new apartment together.

Dufek had no idea that his girlfriend’s cat had jumped inside the box spring before he sold it.

Tyson the one-time lost cat is probably warm and cozy right now in his new home. He may even have a new name.

But his previous owners, an Offutt Air Force Base couple, want him back at their place, insisting that the lost kitty should not have been put up for adoption by the Nebraska Humane Society.

“He’s a member of our family,’’ said Marissa Starr, 23, an airman first class. “He’s irreplaceable.’’

Tyson disappeared from the Starrs’ Bellevue home Nov. 21. Later, he turned up at the Humane Society facility at 90th and Fort Streets in northwest Omaha.

Pam Wiese of the Nebraska Humane Society said the cat was at the facility for 21 days before his adoption. It had been in a kennel for strays or lost cats for three days, then assessed, given an ID microchip, treated for a respiratory problem and finally moved into an adoptable kennel, she said.

We believe it was an act of deception,” Riverside County Field & Shelter Deputy Director Frank Corvino said in the release. “The dye job is not very good. But it would work if someone’s looking for their missing, reddish-brown dog.”

Animal Services spokesman John Welsh said the dog should be fine and not suffer any long-term consequences from the dye job.

Lowry said it is important to make sure pet dogs are implanted with a microchip.

A missing dog that was last seen by its owner in the Netherlands, was discovered living in Texas. The adorable black German shepherd mix disappeared from her Holland home, leaving her original owner to wonder whether she would ever see the pup again.

It all started when a teen named Linda Pool got the puppy in 2011, according to Houston Chronicle. She named the mixed breed Amy. Although the girl loved her pet very much, she was forced to give the animal to a breeder due to circumstances beyond her control. While Pool was looking for a good permanent home for the pooch, the breeder reportedly sold it to persons unknown. The teen was devastated.

In October, 2014, a college student named Katy noticed an emaciated stray dog wandering beside a highway in Houston, Texas. Katy collected the dog from Interstate-10 and transported it to a local veterinarian’s office. Shockingly, a microchip implanted in the dog revealed that its owner lived 5,000 miles away.

A dog rescued from an icy, half-frozen creek was adopted Friday.

River, as he’s now being called, was spotted in a gulch at Bible Park earlier this month. His back end was stuck in the nearly frozen creek and he couldn’t move or get out of the water.

The Dumb Friends League said a passerby named Bob and two other people who happened to be at the park went into the frozen creek to rescue River. They got the dog out of the creek, wrapped him in a blanket and carried the 80-pound dog to Bob’s car. Bob took the dog to the Dumb Friends League. […]
