Our Coworker Lost Her Cat So We Organized A Cat Search Party At Lunch And Found Him

On this episode of CAT DETECTIVE.

Posted on

On Wednesday morning, I woke up to the news that my coworker Kelsey's cat, Leo, had gotten out of her house while she was out of town. Leo is an indoor cat who had never been outside, and had been missing since Tuesday night, so we were obviously very worried.

I sent Kelsey a text asking what I could do to help, and she asked if I could reach out to the BuzzFeed office and just ask people to keep an eye out for Leo, since she lives pretty close to our office. So, I did....

...And because people who work at BuzzFeed are generally wonderful people and also LOVE animals, my coworkers immediately started replying back with tips and offering to help in any way they could. One person even quickly made up signs for people to print out!

Before I knew it, a LITERAL lunchtime cat search party had formed and they were determined to find Kelsey's missing cat!

Just before 12:30, our heroic lunchtime search party team hit the streets of Hollywood and I KID YOU FUCKING NOT 10 MINUTES LATER I GOT THIS GCHAT:

OUR COWORKER KATE FOUND LEO IN SOMEONE'S SHED NEAR KELSEY'S HOUSE / OUR OFFICE!!!!!

This is one of the pictures we sent to Kelsey to confirm this little beaut was, in fact, Leo!

After giving Leo a little time to warm up to her, Kate, and several other coworkers who had since showed up to help, were able to successfully deliver Leo back home to Kelsey's roommate!
