Wallkill woman finds lost pussy after relentless two months search

Gardiner’s well-known hissing person case has been solved. One ornery outdoor feline — miffed after visiting a local veterinarian — escaped from its owner and remained at large for eight weeks. A widespread campaign unrivaled in Gardiner then ensued.

Sarah Sax, devastated at the loss of her longtime companion, launched an all-out effort to locate the wayward animal, age 13, called “Tigere” — the Spanish word for King Tiger. “I know it’s a dumb name,” she confessed.

The reunited human said she’s known the animal since Tigere’s birth. His father, Mixmax was a starving cat in the woods, “who I could not tame — some kind of wild cat. He had this huge head,” Sax recalled. The mother — another stray — had a litter with that paternal half-bred snow bengal.

Tigere absconded from Sax’s grip on October 6th, after visiting the Gardiner animal hospital for routine inoculations. “He’s a gentle cat,” Sax, who arrived with another driver, recollected. “I had him on my lap.” The tabby normally gets skittish in close quarters. “If you put him in a cage, he really freaks out, has a panic attack,” Sax warned.

The shots were administered, under protest. Upon leaving the clinic, Tigere bolted away — in a dash for freedom — escaping from the car. “The door was open just a crack – he just booked,” lamented Sax. “He ran right up to the top of the fence and jumped over,” Sax said sadly. “He turned, looked back — and when he saw he was home free — and nobody was going to catch him, he was very happy,” she admitted, adding, “It was a beautiful summer day, he was practically dancing.”

Undaunted, Sax proceeded to bombard the neighborhood with fliers seeking her missing pet. “It was pretty extensive campaign,” Sax declared, “I posted everywhere, hung notices, talked to people, had a big huge sign.”

Tips began to trickle in; most of them were false alarms, followed by several credible clues. “I got three different calls for the same general location on the rail trail,” Sax related. She followed up with site investigation, behind Kiss My Face soap factory. “We saw a cat — at least the tail sticking out — I’m pretty sure that was him. “He was unwilling to come, because he didn’t want to go back to the car, the vet, whatever it was.”

Contrite, Sax pondered Tigere’s motives for flight. “He felt crossed by being forced to go to the vet,” she supposed. “He doesn’t think of himself as a pet, more like a roommate. He doesn’t like to be told to do things he doesn’t want to do,” Sax remarked. “He’s not a tame kitty-cat. He’s huge, and looks like a tiger — he ain’t no pussy. Sax guessed, “I think he might remember [being fixed], maybe that’s why he hates the vet.”

On October 6th, Sax made a confirmed sighting. “I started calling him, he started walking beside me, — talking to me, nagging, lecturing me,” she said, excited. “I had a can of food with me, and opened the can. He whiffed and came over. I sat down on the rail trail and let him eat — and when he finished eating, I finally went over to him.

Tigere spent the next several weeks wallowing in gluttony. “He just commenced to being an eating machine — four cans of food a day, Sax bragged. “Just eat and go back to sleep.” Back at the ranch, Tigere’s sibling Ela is elated. “They’re cuddling and sleeping together,” Sax grinned.”So far, it’s a happy ending “Everything is just back as it was, just like nothing ever happened.”
