I own pets, and they checked this little girl over carefully and decided she was okay, so she was our guest for the night. The next day, I called the Greensburg-Decatur County Humane Shelter and talked to Michael Wenning. I told him the description and that I would just keep the little girl until someone claimed her. He suggested I might want to bring her by the shelter so they could check for a microchip.
The next day, I was on my way to the shelter, at the same time it turned out Mike was on the phone calling me. As he was talking to my recorder, I drove into the shelter, and he hung up. A lady was standing with Mike name Mattie Ott. She had come to the shelter to find her beloved little Maggie.
Maggie had been gone for the day, and Mattie went looking for her, somehow making it all the way across Lincoln and blocks down on Montgomery. The little girl had walked all the way from her home, probably about four blocks. Mattie returned home, but Maggie wasn’t there; she was my guest.
It was a tearful reunion, with Mattie crying and Maggie hugging close to her mommy. Mike was watching and just happy for the way it all turned out.
Maggie is elderly and just the sweetest little thing, a very nice guest. I could tell that she was someone’s housemate, as her manners were impeccable. So, Maggie and Mattie were reunited. We all hugged.
