uses Tinder to find lost cat.
by Miranda Larbi
When Katie Alsop’s cat went missing, she didn’t schlep the
streets pinning ‘missing’ posters on trees.
No, she decided to go for altogether more efficient, modern method. She
got herself a premium Tinder membership and uploaded Peanut’s picture
in the hope of reaching a wider audience.
Setting her search distance to a 10km radius, she received 400 matches – and
within 30 minutes, got a call from a bloke called Charlie who found Peanut
in his garden. But that wasn’t the end of the saga. Peanut then
escaped from Charlie’s garden and Katie teamed up with him to hunt
She made trails of used cat litter around the neighbourhood and back
towards her home in the hope that Peanut might follow the scent. When
that didn’t work, she added bits from her laundry basket and warm
tuna to the trail (imagine the smell!). But it worked – Katie heard
Peanut meowing in the street early the next morning.
‘I would never have known where to search for Peanut without using Tinder,
and really don’t think he would have found his way home on his own,’ she
tells the Huffington Post. ‘He’s never going out again.’

Cat makes its debut at Bronx Zoo.
Don't be afraid of this "ghost cat."
A female snow leopard cub has made its public debut just in time for
Halloween, the Bronx Zoo announced Thursday.
She is "thoroughly enjoying time with mom," the zoo said.
Snow leopards are sometimes called "ghost cats" because their
pale grey coats let them "easily blend into rocks and snow," the
Wildlife Conservation Society (WSC) said in a news release.
In this Oct. 10, 2017 photo, a female snow leopard cub leaps towards
another leopard at the Bronx Zoo in New York. The zoo announced Thursday,
Oct. 26, that the snow leopard cub, sometimes called a "ghost cat," has
made its public debut just in time for Halloween.
The cub hasn't been named yet. Her parents are mother K2 and father Naltar,
the WSC said.
The youngster is also the second generation offspring of a famous snow
leopard named Leo, which was brought to the Bronx Zoo in 2006 in partnership
with the U.S. and Pakistan governments, according to the conservation
This snow leopard cub is special not only
because it is an ambassador for its species,
but because of its lineage," Dr. Patrick
Thomas, the WCS vice president and general
curator and Bronx Zoo associate director,
said in a statement.
