Red Cat goes home with her owner, Kristine Daves, after living at FLOCK since last May.
Last May, Kristine Daves was forced to find new homes for her three cats when her landlord gave her and her three children just two weeks to find a new place to live. Daves gave her cats to the nonprofit animal organization FLOCK, For the Love of Cats and Kittens.

When Daves saw the recent news reports about how Nye County had taken over the FLOCK facility near Pahrump, Nev., her first thought was about her three cats, E.T., M.J. and Red Cat. She visited the facility at the soonest opportunity, was thrilled to find E.T. and M.J., and brought them home. But she was distressed not to see any sign of Red Cat.

Until rescue workers from Best Friends Animal Society, who are providing care to the 400 cats at the FLOCK facility, contacted Daves last week. They had found a red tabby matching Red Cat’s description. Daves went out to the facility.

Daves said she knew the red tabby was hers as soon as she saw her. “Oh baby, I’m so sorry,” she said as she took Red Cat out of the enclosure at FLOCK.

Red Cat is now reunited with E.T. and M.J. Daves also brought home Red Cat’s closest companion from FLOCK, a Siamese mix named Rufus. “I just want to help as much as I can,” Daves said.
