On Monday night, Barb Oswald found an orange cat outside her home. The cat has white around her mouth and she believes the cat is a female.
The cat was found in Prairie Ridge subdivision in Minooka.
"The cat was just meowing outside our door," she said. "My son actually heard the cat and he loves cats so he called me and we found it right outside and it just followed us around.
"I walked up and down the main street of our subdivision and the cat just followed us the entire time."
Although there is a missing cat poster in Minooka, hanging on the corner of Mondamin and Wabena avenues, Oswald called that family and this is not their cat.
If you are missing a cat and believe this cat is yours, please contact local editor Dawn Aulet at 815-531-7412 so she can put you in touch with Oswald.
