Loudmouth on the loose in Byhalia
The Marshall County Humane Society has an APB out for a cat in Byhalia. He’s orange with white on his face and shoulders and weighs about 10 pounds. His name is Loudmouth. He was last seen at the Church of Christ; we believe he was attracted by the singing and may have joined in.
The story began at the Spay/Neuter Clinic last Thursday. Check-in, surgery, recovery and check-out all went smoothly but then, on the trip across the yard to get in the car to go home, he made a break for it. Somehow he popped the door open on his carrier and ran. He eluded all efforts to follow and recapture him so we’re asking the citizens of Byhalia to keep a lookout.
He is most likely in the southeastern quadrant of the town south of Church St. and east of Hwy. 309. He’s people friendly and quite a talker. If you see him, please call 662-252-6196 or 662-564-2900 and leave a message.
There’s a lesson for all carrier users here especially where cats are concerned. Be sure to check the latch! If he escapes you won’t catch him until he wants you to.
For cats, if you don’t have a carrier or if the door on the one you have opens easily, a sturdy cloth pillow case works great. Just drop kitty in, then secure the open end with a twist tie and you have kitty-in-a-sack. It’s easy to carry, lots lighter than that heavy carrier and cats actually like being in dark, hidey places. That way he’s not under your feet or jumping out of the window while you’re driving and can’t make an escape in transit from the vehicle to the door.
For an appointment at the Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic call 662-252-6196. For information on fostering, adoptions or anything else about our group, call 662-564-2900. Correspondence and donations should be sent to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.
