Laure from Tower Magne in Nimes had put her beloved 5-year-old Maine Coon in the cattery during the holidays.

When she goes to pick up her beautiful grey cat called Dandy, the pet is handed over to her in its carrier and she heads home.

Something is wrong

But when she arrives home with the cat and gets it out of the carrier, she quickly realises that it isn’t Dandy. It is wearing the wrong collar and the eyes are different.

The cattery has given her the wrong cat!


The confused woman takes the cat to her vet who confirms her worst fears that the animal isn’t hers. She manages to get hold of someone from the cattery who admits that when they opened the cage, Dandy had run off.
