Tanner In The Morning

Weekdays 5:00AM - 10:00AM

He had been missing for ten years .  He is a black and white tuxedo cat and he has become the subject of a custody battle after turning up in a new state 10 years after going missing. This North Carolina cat that has been at the center of a custody battle returns to Kansas.

The cat named Maui was brought to an animal hospital in Wake County, North Carolina after being found outside a few weeks ago. According to Fox 8  when the cat was microchip scanned, the vet found he belongs to an owner in Wichita, Kansas. This was a surprise to the family that took him in in North Carolina.  They wanted to keep him but his original owner also wanted him back.

An animal center representative had this to say about the situation as reported by Channel 8: “Ms. Holmes has confirmed that she is the cat’s owner, that she had no intention to abandon the cat when it disappeared from her property, that she wishes to reclaim the cat, and that she has the means to make arrangements for the cat to be transported back to Ms. Holmes’ home in Kansas.”

Best Places in North Carolina to Explore Different Animals

Are you looking to have some fun with animals? Well, I have been contemplating fun things to do and for some reason, a petting zoo has been on my mind. It’s probably because I recently went to Disney World and Animal Kingdom was my absolute favorite place. From The Lion King being my favorite movie to the Safari Tour at Animal Kingdom, I have been thinking about animals like crazy. But, there is no Animal Kingdom here in Charlotte for me to enjoy, right? So, I have to think of somewhere else.

Of course, I decided to take matters into my own hands. That means I am looking into petting zoos, zoos, and all types of animal parks in the state. Why not have some animal-friendly fun? Let’s enjoy some time with the animals and see what you can do here in North Carolina. Can’t wait!
