Hey Guys, I'm kind of having a mental dilema today so a chat would be really helpful.
3 years ago I lost a male chocolate seal point ragdoll cat. He was microchipped and I rang endless rescue centres looking for him but he never turned up. He was shy, a house cat by his own choice as he wasnt overly keen on the outside world, absolutley gorgeous (look at a chocolate seal point online and you'll know what I mean) and had the most amazing blue eyes even for a ragdoll. They were really striking even to someone used to the breed. He was always on the lean/skinny side and no matter what always had a really greasy look to his tail (his only down fall looks wise)
Anyway while in the vets for a check up with my dog today in the waiting room I noticed a picture of a cat lost in feb. It was an adult choc seal point ragdoll, with eyes the exact shade of my old cats. He even had the same shape which is also unusual as the breed in general is quite big boned.
Now as someone who used to show this breed I could spot from a mile off what the cat was. Yet the notice didnt mention his breed or anything which i find unusal, as don't people usually give this info if known? It also didnt offer a reward. Yet again I know not everyone can afford a reward, but if someone owned a ragdoll (£350+ at least) and of this quality shown in the picture you'd assume if they knew its value they'd insure it. On the picture the only thing I couldn't see on the cat was its tail.
Am I being unreasonable and just missing my cat, but since this breed isn't exactly common I can't believe its just coincidence. Does anyone else think like me in maybe this could be my cat? I wrote down their number, but I think I'm being stupid as first of all they no longer have the cat, but what if he was mine. I'd probably let him stay their if they found him again, but it would be nice to know he's safe and being looked after. Does anyone else think there are too many coincidences?
