Dubbed Gypsy, this lost beauty wasn’t able to find her way out of the shelter and back with her family. Gypsy ended up as so many strays do at the high-kill shelter in Greenville, South Carolina. After the five-day stray hold, the shelter had the option to place Gypsy up for adoption or rescue or to euthanize her.
Despite nationwide coverage of the vagabond cat, and the world holding its breath that she would return home safely, no one came forward to claim her.
Gypsy is one of the fortunate ones to make it out of the shelter, and into a new home. She now legally belongs to the family who adopted her.
It’s sad that her former owner couldn’t be found. A simple microchip would have gotten her safely back to her family.
