A public relations company has a new, unusual client. A three-legged kitty cat.
The cat, company employees nicknamed “Paws,” simply turned up at the front door of Selig Multimedia, Inc., which happens to be the home to the PR firm, The Publicity Agency and the press release newswire PR NewsChannel.
Clearly the cat wanted some attention.
“We tried calling the various governmental or animal offices that might be able to help but we were told that they either did not have the employees to pick up the cat or could not guarantee that the cat would not be put down,” says Glenn Selig, president and CEO of Selig Multimedia, Inc.
Selig says his office gave the cat water but then Paws disappeared for a few weeks.
The cat returned today.
And that’s when the company decided to do something.
Using the resources of its PR firm and news distribution wire, Selig Multimedia, Inc. launched a campaign to find the owners who may be missing their cat, or find a new home for the lost cat who has only three legs.
“It’s one of the hind legs that appears to have been amputated,” says Selig. “Despite the disability, Paws appears to have no problem moving around and at a great clip, too!”
“We hoping this story has a happy ending,” says Selig. “It would be a great holiday miracle and a great story to tell for years to come.”
If you are interested in providing a home for the cat, please contact Selig Multimedia, Inc. at (813) 708-1220.
The cat made her way inside the Selig Multimedia, Inc. offices. (See video below.)
An hour later, the cat’s owner came forward and claimed the cat. The cat’s name is Heather. Turns out, she had been abandoned about a year ago and the new cat owner took her in. The new cat owner is taking good care of her and she is warm and safe now.
“Thanks to everyone from around the U.S. and Canada who offered to help,” says Selig. “There are a lot of really wonderful, caring people in this world. And it’s reassuring to know that.”
