If you’re worried about what happens to Nora, a cat caught by an angry neighbor and running away from animal service, don’t worry anymore.
Gusmundur Felixon, one of Nora’s owners, said on Facebook that he was repeatedly found around the Reykjavik Zoo, but was wary of the cage and that attempts to catch her were futile. In the end, her zoo employee managed to get her and take her home.
He thanked Reykjavik City employees for their help and added that “hopefully Nora’s adventures will change their way of doing so in Reykjavik City.”
The operation Guðmundur refers to here is the way Nóra was first placed under the control of animal services.
One of Nora’s neighbors hated Nora and apparently called her for animal service. Her animal service set a trap for Nora and caught her. But the owner of Nora only knew she was in custody after her problem neighbor said so. Shortly thereafter, Nora escaped animal service through her open window, and she had been running her ever since.
“In my understanding, the city of Reykjavik will more or less stop using this tactic and only do so when everything else has been tried,” Gusmundur told reporters at the time, his neighborhood is full of cats. I pointed out. “They should have contacted us at least first.”
Anyway, Nora is at home at least for now and will be ruined in the next few days after a long absence.
