Customer Question
My male cat disappeared after...
My male cat disappeared after the storm, so he's been missing since mid April. The cat got stuck up in a tree in a house between my house and the person's house that had taken my cat in.
I never knew she had my cat and I've spent everyday on the computer, in my car and walking the neighborhood.
After I saw the cat that was rescued from the tree I realized it was my cat. My cat had been operated for a UTI, and almost died. Apparently this happened to her and she took the cat to the vet (which just happened to be the one I had taken my cats to.
She has since given the cat away and she won't tell me who she gave it to. I told her I'd like her to take me to the house that she left the cat in just to prove it's my cat. She refuses to do anything.
In the meantime her friend has my cat and I want it back. How do I go about this.?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
