Cat Dilemma?

Earlier today I dropped the ramp on the enclosed trailer and there was a cat sitting in the trailer. The only thing I could figure is the cat got in the trailer sometime at the previous property.

Shortly after dropping the ramp the cat walked out of the trailer and looked around, it was obvious that it was completely confused to it's location as it slowly started walking around.

I figured I had two options at this point:
1. Let it wonder off and hopefully it would find itself a new home.
2. Try and catch it and take it back to the previous location, knowing that the client of previous home does not have a cat, but might be a neighbors.

I figured the best thing was to take the cat back to the previous location. Catching the cat was the easy part, trying to stuff it into a storage cabinet so it wouldn't run off until after I finished up the current property proved to be a slightly different problem. Seems the cat didn't want to go into the small, dark, confined space.

Anyways, long story short, I went back to previous property and dropped it off. This time after letting the cat out of the trailer it seemed to know where it was.

Would you have done the same or just let it wonder off?

It was very kind of you to return the cat and I'm sure the people appreciated it. We have a long time customer who agreed to put their dogs up whenever we come to mow since the dogs love to shoot through the gate and run off. They were gone and had failed to do so when we stopped to mow so, of course, the dogs managed to get out. We finally found them a few hours later when they wandered into the yard of one of our other customers when we were starting to do that yard. Took a real load off my mind to have found them and got them back home.

You did the right thing Brett. I'm sure the owners would thank you if they could.

You certainly did the right thing, and I'm glad it turned out as good as it did - and as easy (being able to catch the cat, and all).
