Dear Shadow Community,
Brad here, Shadow’s dad! I bet you didn’t know that Shadow has a sister. Her name is Patti Smith (because she’s punk rock) and she’s a cat!
Patti came into our lives when I met my fiancé, Darla. Patti Smith was a rescue who was roaming the streets in NYC. Darla adopted her and gave her a forever home and now she’s part of our forever family. Shadow and Patti are so cute together. They are typical siblings. Sleeping together one day, and annoying each other the next day.
I can’t imagine losing Patti. Seeing how easy it is for her to sneak out a cracked door, only to stop wide-eyed at the world a foot from the steps, I understand why lost cats are such a large portion of the 10 million missing pets in the world every year.
With the help of the Shadow Community, we’re hoping to change that because now you can search for lost cats on our missing pet app!!! We’ve helped reunite over 10,000 dogs with their families so far, and we can do that for our feline friends too! We all know that cats like to wander and be…CATS. This will pose challenges for us that are different from lost dogs, but we’ll learn together. Let’s help each other help these cats get back home to their cozy spots. I know Shadow would miss Patti Smith if she ever went missing…most days 😉
Thank you to everyone who has helped build this community into such a successful platform for missing pets. I never could have imagined that such a tragic moment in my life would have turned into something so positive.
Brad, Shadow, Darla, and Patti Smith
