Cat met with heartbreak after walking 12 miles home

Cat met with heartbreak after walking 12 miles home

The SPCA said the shelter instead sought its help in getting Toby a loving home.

A 7-year-old cat who'd been abandoned by his owners in North Carolina, US, made his way back home by walking 19km, only to find out his owners really did not want him back. The family brought Toby to a local shelter to be euthanized, I know, just terrible.

In a bad twist, the family he thought had loved him took him to a shelter and asked staff to put him down, according to SPCA of Wake County.

It's a story that will "rip your heart out", Mondy Lamb of the SPCA of Wake County said.

Toby had a cold and tested positive for feline immunodeficiency virus when he was brought in to she SPCA in February, but shelter staff took care of the sweet boy. "Of course we said YES!" the shelter posted on Facebook.

"If he will walk 12 miles to save his own life, will you walk one?" a release from the Wake SPCA asked.

Those who saw Toby's story on social media expressed anger and frustration towards the family that was so easily willing to put Toby down.

On April 16, the shelter announced that this sweet boy had a flawless new family.

Now Toby's team will be raising money for the place that found the loyal kitty a new home. The lonely feline now has three new siblings, a cat sibling, two humans, and a cat-savvy mom to give him the home he deserves.
