Male cat "Pauli" from Styria rediscovered in Vienna

A passer-by reported a free-roaming cat to the municipal animal rescue service in Seestadt. Although “Pauli” was not chipped or registered, thanks to an intensive search by his family and friends, there was a happy ending soon after in the animal quarters: his photo was recognized on the find page on the Internet.

On September 9, the one-year-old tomcat escaped through a patio door that wasn’t properly closed. His owner immediately went in search of the tiger cat in the area, asked Styrian animal shelters and forwarded a missing person report to the media. “Pauli” remained as if swallowed up by the face of the earth – until September 29th.

Around 1,000 cats and 500 dogs are found in Vienna every year, many of which cannot go home, said animal quarters manager Thomas Benda. “Chipping and registering correctly saves a lot of suffering and worry.” If “Pauli” escapes again, that also applies to him: “Like all cats found in the animal quarters, he was chipped.”
