Ad turns futile, Scrappy will never return
Kalpetta: On Sunday, an advertisement pasted on a compound wall in Kalpetta, caught the attention of people. The ad spoke about a cat Scrappy which went missing. Snapped tail was the identity mark given in th advt. The ad also listed two phone numbers for informers.
Scrappy belonged to Devaprasad of PK Quarters in Chathothuvayal here. Four months back, he found it on roadside. Devaprasad and brother Shyamaprasad took the cat home, nursed it and named it Scrappy.
One day amid lockdown, she went missing. Though they searched everywhere, the cat couldn’t be found. With no other option, Devaprasad made a missing poster with a picture of Scrappy drawn by him and pasted it everywhere.
Each time the phone rings, it gave them hope only to be disappointed later. It has been four days since the poster was pasted, when writer Balan Vengara found it. He took to Facebook and shared the poster along with a touching note.
The comments under the post informed that Scrappy was killed by stray dogs. The carcass was found not far away from the PK Quarters and the locals had buried it.
Devaprasad’s friends exhumed the carcass and confirmed it was Scrappy.
Devaprasad and Shyamaprasad are mourning the parting of their beloved at home.
