Update: Over the weekend, Harvey’s owners picked him up to take back home. Harvey still isn’t talking.
City of Dallas News Release:
It’s been a long journey for Harvey the cat.
The feline, who disappeared from his Denver home last June, was pulled from a 25-foot hole at a construction site in Highland Park. It took a Dallas Animal Services (DAS) field team about six hours, but he was finally rescued; caked in mud but apparently in good shape.
After being cleaned up at the shelter, DAS staff found his microchip and called his owner in Denver, who had no idea how he got from Denver to Dallas. Nonetheless, Harvey’s family is flying from Denver to Dallas this weekend to take him home. His owner said they’re very excited to be reunited with their missing pet.
