Miracle Mussi, the Cat, Survives Two Months Locked in a Basement With out Meals!

Feb 11, 2013: Mussi, my beloved tabby from South Chicago, didn’t return from his nightly outing! At first, I assumed he was simply extending his nightly journey for a number of hours, however Mussi remained gone till after midnight. I began looking the neighborhood time and again, calling his title. After hours of fruitless search actions, I gave up and went to mattress. I tossed and turned restlessly till the next morning. Early within the morning, I bought up and combed the neighborhood once more. I prolonged the search space a number of blocks, puzzled on the scenario. I saved calling his title “Muuussssiiii!” Nothing! The place may he be?

On no event had Mussi ventured removed from the home previously. In seven years, he’d by no means disappeared like this. Our silent settlement entailed him checking in with me each half-hour or so. He had at all times been sticking to it. So, what occurred rapidly? My thoughts performed out the worst horror situations. Was he locked in some darkish basement? Kidnapped? Run over? Chased away by different cats, or worse, canines? I felt so determined that I couldn’t suppose straight. I used to be manner too depressed and anxious.

I alarmed my household and associates, who had been perplexed. Everybody liked Mussi and knew him as probably the most intuitive, good, light tiger from Chicago. They felt sorry for me, as I used to be nonetheless reeling from ache resulting from one other disaster and positively had sufficient sorrows. After many extra searches, I made a decision to get assist. I requested my sister to contact a girl she calls “witch”, her intuitive buddy, healer and animal communicator for recommendation. This lady tuned in and felt that Mussi was barely injured and hiding in a basement someplace. She didn’t really feel that he was locked in, however merely hiding out. She mentioned that she would ship him power and information him dwelling.

No cat appeared. I checked the basements I may get entry to and knowledgeable the neighbors to do the identical. My frustration grew with each passing hour. I scanned your complete space, time and again. The place may this cat be? A neighbor and I checked two buildings’ floor flooring and garages for a cat signal, to no avail. As a substitute, she launched me to her cats, who I greeted suspiciously. They appeared responsible and will have been concerned in chasing Mussi away. Everybody was a suspect at this level. Even the opposite two black cats from the neighbor straight throughout appeared to paw round shiftily. I clearly wanted sleep!

I began tagging your complete district and past with “Desperately Looking for Mussi” posters. The preliminary batch I put up two days after Mussi’s disappearance, overlaying a number of blocks. The densely populated space didn’t make the alternatives for flyer placement and neighbor conversations any simpler. There have been just too many locations the place Mussi could possibly be hiding, it was making me dizzy. So, I put flyers on any appropriate spot; on buildings, doorways, lamp posts, storage doorways, rubbish bins, you title it – Mussi posters went up! Inside days, everybody within the space knew my cat was lacking.

Because the desperation grew, I made a decision to speak to one among my associates in LA about an animal communicator she had used years again when her cat was lacking. She couldn’t keep in mind the title of the girl in Seattle, so I googled alone. I discovered her and despatched an emergency request. I suppose the animal psychic grasped the severity of the scenario. She known as me again the identical day, after I transferred a bit over 100 bucks to her PayPal. The data she apparently obtained from Mussi was that he went down an alley manner, throughout a area after which crawled right into a gap. He appeared to search out the within of the brand new territory attention-grabbing and determined to hang around for some time. This sounded completely in contrast to Mussi. She claimed that he wasn’t locked in and will probably get out on his personal. She additional talked about that the constructing was close to my home and that we’d be reunited someday.

I continued to place extra posters up within the neighborhood and ask round. A man known as from a number of blocks away, claiming that he had noticed Mussi in his yard. I drove down there immediately, however the cat, in fact, was gone. I checked the world, however there was no trace of Mussi.

I expanded the poster and search space a number of extra blocks. I tagged the publish workplace, the surface of shops, just about all lamp posts within the space, bus and practice stations. It was chilly out. Deep winter had arrived. It didn’t make Mussi’s survival or my search any simpler. Many ol’ nights I froze my fingers off, posting flyers. I didn’t need to think about what the chilly spell meant for Mussi, wherever he was. I couldn’t bear the considered Mussi freezing to demise someplace on the market in midwinter.

My telephone actually beginning ringing now. I obtained calls from quite a few folks, claiming they noticed Mussi within the cemetery, near a bus station and sitting on a path and underneath a automobile. Nonetheless, none was capable of both snap an image or catch the cat. As I used to be at work, it was not at all times possible for me to drop every thing and comply with obscure leads.

Then, one Saturday, I bought a name from a French woman who discovered and held a gray tabby captive. She snapped an image and despatched it. I used to be on a horse after I bought the decision, about an hour away. I hurried again because the considerably blurry image may have been Mussi. An hour later, I discovered the French woman within the described space, with 4 youngsters and a cat gathered round her. Deeply impressed at her dedication and persistence, I thanked her immensely for making an attempt to assist. Sadly, the captured cat was not Mussi and will get launched.

It had been manner over every week now and nonetheless no cat. He was my treasured child, who moved from Chicago to Zurich with me, three and a half years in the past. He liked Switzerland as he may enterprise outdoors, which was not possible downtown Chicago. All my life I’ve had cats, however none as particular as Mussi. I used to be deeply linked to him and liked him from the underside of my coronary heart. Mussi to me resembled a cat embodiment of Mom Teresa. I knew he was alive, however I merely was unable to fathom the place. I missed his cuddling as much as me each evening, his consolation after I was not feeling effectively and the numerous totally different faces and sounds of Mussi.

The place was he? I knew he would have by no means left on his personal. More and more, I began to suspect he was kidnapped. Or did he try to return to his previous home the place we lived till a number of months prior, and bought misplaced on the way in which there? I had alerted the ex-neighbors and skimmed the world. No person had seen Mussi there. The previous neighbors, who used to look at Mussi, had been on fixed lookout for him. I knew they’d do a fantastic job, however I tagged your complete space with Mussi flyers.

I bought a name from an power healer who lived close to my previous home. She mentioned she noticed my flyer and only a few minutes after noticed a cat that appeared like a spitting picture of Mussi. She swore it was him. Her instinct, she mentioned, by no means lied. So, I drove down there to see if I may nonetheless see traces of my cat, however there was nothing.

Regardless of all of the Mussi search actions that had been ongoing for 2 weeks, I made a decision to go snowboarding for a few days. I wanted to get away. I used to be going insane. On my manner dwelling Sunday evening from the mountains, I bought a name from my cosmetologist who lived close to my previous home. Her voice was frantic as she screeched one thing about having caught my cat and that I ought to present up instantly to select him up. I drove right down to her home, nonetheless wearing snowboard pants. Certainly, she was sitting in entrance of a tabby, however it wasn’t Mussi. Nonetheless, that cat was clearly misplaced and confused and in search of his dwelling. An exquisite kitty this man was and I felt sorry for him. Adrienne mentioned, “Simply take him as an alternative or yours!” Sorry, however there was no fast substitute for Mussi! It broke my coronary heart to see this cat hysterically trying to find his dwelling. So, I advised Adrienne that if no one else takes him within the coming days, I’d, quickly anyway! Fortunately, a neighbor was sort sufficient to offer him shelter a number of days later.

I had additionally reported Mussi lacking with, the chip firm, hoping {that a} finder would take him to a vet or hospital the place he would get scanned and reported to me. Additional, I suggested animal clinics and vets within the space concerning the lacking Mussi. On-line, I had posted lacking Mussi adverts on numerous misplaced pet websites.

I began receiving emails from individuals who recognized with my ache and tried to offer recommendation. Some talked about to accentuate the search after midnight, others insisted I shouldn’t surrender hope as they’d misplaced their cats for as much as a yr after which bought reunited. One individual even provided to come back assist search at evening or within the wee hours.

A woman from about 5 blocks away known as saying “Do not inform anybody, however I feed the foxes at evening.” I mentioned that I’d not utter a phrase and that she ought to proceed. Plainly the previous few nights, a cat had shared the fox’s hen leg she dropped outdoors her window. In actual fact, the cat was quicker than the fox and bought its share early on. The woman insisted that the fox meals thief was my cat. I agreed to investigate cross-check it. She promised to name the identical evening proper after dropping the hen outdoors. She did. I instantly left my home to see the scene for myself. And actually, a cat confirmed up simply 5 minutes after the hen was out to feast on it. But it surely wasn’t my kitty – once more! However now I used to be an insider of the fox feeding conspiracy!

I contacted one other animal communicator someplace in Nevada. She tuned in and dowsed the map of my surrounding space. She claimed a neighbor was holding Mussi hostage and that I ought to launch an assault on that home. She was certain. I bought binoculars, sat myself in a bush at evening and ogled the world. No cat. I even put fliers in all mailboxes belonging to that constructing, rang a number of doorbells and requested, however nothing.

Extra calls had been coming my manner. A clerk who labored in a close-by firm reported “Oh, your tomcat has been visiting us right here for weeks. I’ll ship you an image.” I did obtain the picture. A pleasant, completely glad tabby stretched out on his desk. Whereas he appeared comparable, it was not Mussi. I thanked him and felt he was glad that the lengthy tiger wasn’t my cat. He appeared to like this tabby visiting him within the afternoon for playtime.

I made a decision to push my luck and contacted Joseph McMoneagle, a brilliant well-known distant viewer, who labored for the US Military for twenty years, distant viewing and discovering high secret navy buildings, gear and folks. After his stint within the Military, he turned well-known distant viewing for companies or dwell on Japanese TV. Joe had written a number of bestsellers on the subject and was the rock star within the area of “psychic spy” work. I met Joe a number of occasions in Virginia and determined to ask for assist. A daily session with him often price 1000’s of {dollars}, however he was sort sufficient to produce a drawing with indications concerning the cat’s whereabouts. I surveyed the desired space, however couldn’t discover something that appeared like Mussi. I put up extra flyers within the identified space, which led to some calls of cat sightings, however nothing critical. A cat as a goal seems quite a bit more durable than a human or a machine.

The cat who stretched out on the clerk’s desk bought reported to me once more by an area soccer membership member. He known as and mentioned “I discovered your cat and am holding him in our clubhouse.” I ran down there and noticed the identical tabby stretched out on the ground, watching soccer with the dudes. What a humorous sight it was. This cat severely bought round. I thanked them for the hassle and left, dejected. It had been virtually 4 weeks now and I began to lose hope.

That well-known tabby bought reported a 3rd time by a pleasant lady a few mile away from my home. He had invaded her balcony and gave sinister stares at her indoor kitty.

However the place on the earth was my tabby?

Then, I bought a name from many blocks away in the course of the evening one Friday. A pair had captured a tabby, despatched a blurry image that left an excessive amount of room for interpretation. So, once more, I drove down there to verify and naturally, it wasn’t Mussi. However I needed to comply with these leads simply to ensure.

One other neighbor, an previous woman, known as me twice to pledge allegiance and promised to show over each rock within the neighborhood. She had noticed tabbies and simply wanted a colour image to substantiate which one was mine. I fortunately provided her with an image. The woman was retired and had all day to skim the neighborhood. Sadly, she by no means reported the “proper” tabby.

By now, your complete neighborhood was concerned within the search and folks actually bought speaking. The neighborhood turned an actual neighborhood once more due to Mussi. Everybody was on a mission to get better the candy little furry creature.

I employed one other extremely beneficial animal communicator. What did I’ve to lose? His outcomes left me unimpressed. He identified a tree-covered park-like space and insisted the cat was hiding there. The houses proper behind that space seemed to be one other goal for him. Way back, I had tagged flyers throughout that space. Nonetheless, I ventured down there once more to verify and located Mussi-like fur on a area. It appeared like a cat-fox struggle had taken place. My coronary heart sank to the bottom. I assumed, in fact, the fox took and devoured him. My mother agreed with my suspicion. However who actually knew? Positive factor was – this animal communicator made one other 175USD of me – for nothing.

One other “pet detective” from Los Angeles, who works on a donation foundation, advised Mussi to be close to that very same space. As she apparently combines her frequent cat search sense with psychic instinct, she beneficial to sit down close to that space with a guide, as cats supposedly come out when one is quiet and studying. Whereas this may increasingly work for different cats, I knew Mussi would come instantly if he did spot me. She additional beneficial to place out “fish trails” from numerous instructions to my home. Supposedly, a number of of her shoppers bought their lacking cats again with this tactic. As I left no stone unturned, I blended up cat meals with fish sauce and trailed it from quite a few instructions to my deck. After some time, I noticed a number of confused cats sitting on or close to the path and loved fairly a number of cat guests on my deck. The perplexed cats stared at me in disbelief. They appeared to ask, “Are you insane?” Nicely, was I? I began to imagine myself that I might gone over the sting.

A younger lady named Kerstin contacted me (she noticed my posters) and insisted she’d assist me in my search. So, one Sunday she got here to my home and we as soon as once more, scanned your complete space. As soon as extra, we got here again empty-handed. She volunteered to print coloured Mussi footage and hand them out within the neighborhood (my flyers had been black and white). She additional provided to assist me additional in my quest and stayed in contact. I actually appreciated the assistance and bought an increasing number of amazed concerning the neighborhood and the outstanding folks in it.

Mussi had been lacking for a month and a half now and my hope for profitable restoration sank to rock-bottom ranges. Which cat would survive for this lengthy on the market within the chilly or locked in someplace?

Whereas I used to be nonetheless getting calls from individuals who noticed tigers underneath automobiles, crossing the highway or invading their balconies, I knew none of those had been Mussi. He was elsewhere. Maybe, he was distant, locked in a jail or useless. I had a bleak image in entrance of my eyes. But, in some way, I nonetheless felt him alive, however barely.

Starting of April, I felt the necessity to get away from all of it and joined a four-day Tibetan Buddhist meditation up within the Alps. The theme fittingly was “Purification” – simply what the physician ordered. I bathed within the marvelous power and was capable of get actually deep into meditation and cleanse fairly a number of impurities out of my system. I felt like a load was lifted off my shoulders after 4 days and with renewed power I went dwelling. Earlier than I left there, a buddy talked about “Now, Susanne, I’d be stunned in case your cat reappeared as your karma has utterly modified.”

She was proper. Earlier than midnight, lower than week after the meditation, on April 11, 2013, I obtained an e mail from petlink, reporting Mussi had been discovered. I assumed it was a joke. I contacted them instantly and bought data the place and who to contact for additional information. He bought scanned by the animal hospital in Zurich! I used to be amazed at this excellent service. On the similar time, I bought a name from a neighbor, very early on that notorious Friday morning, telling me a few half-dead cat she discovered that evening.

The great lady, named Nathalie, breathlessly advised a narrative about how she discovered Mussi, who seemed to be paralyzed, completely starved and dropped in entrance of her storage. Somebody should have put him there and set some milk in a bowl subsequent to him. She mentioned she didn’t know what to do at first, however instantly googled for choices on cat rescue companies. She known as one of many numbers she discovered and inside an hour, the animal rescue service “Tierrettungsdienst” confirmed as much as take the severely emaciated cat to the animal hospital. Earlier than they got here, Nathalie walked as much as one among my flyers to get Mussi’s title. She then went again to him and known as him “Mussi.” He responded with a weak, determined “meow.” She had by no means seen an animal in such dangerous form earlier than, unable to coordinate his limbs, but nonetheless alive. She stayed and talked to him for over an hour till the rescuers confirmed as much as take him to the animal hospital in Zurich (Tierspital Zurich).

All I may do after I heard this story is cry and frantically make my approach to the hospital. The grim description of my cat’s situation left me with little hope to search out him alive. Tears gushed down my cheeks, I used to be unable to manage any of it. I known as my household to share the information. They might not grasp that Mussi was alive. They had been in full and utter shock. On the hospital, Mussi was reported as a “homeless cat”, however not for lengthy. I each dreaded and longed to see him. I used to be anticipating the worst. Then they introduced him in. He had spent the evening on the ICU and simply bought launched. Right here he was. Only a bag of bones, unable to coordinate any actions, completely emaciated, nonetheless panicked – a coronary heart wrenching sight. My coronary heart ached. I cried relentlessly. However Mussi acknowledged me. He meowed and tried to raise his head. The truth that he was launched from the ICU meant that he would most certainly dwell as an assistant “illegally” advised me! The vets, nevertheless, had been cautious in giving me full reassurance, however talked about the probabilities for his survival had been good. I couldn’t imagine it – he would dwell!

Due to a pleasant neighbor,, the animal rescue service, my 200 flyers that I posted, and the animal hospital, Mussi was alive and we had been reunited.

However instantly, questions creeped into my head. What would his future appear to be? And the place had he been? May he get better from this?

In accordance with Nathalie, who discovered Mussi, a locked in, meowing cat would have been detected in her constructing. Individuals handed the storage areas within the basement on their manner as much as the flats. Frightened meows would have been heard. Was Mussi locked inside one other constructing? Did he crawl to this storage along with his final power after lastly having been launched? Maybe, we are going to by no means know.

Nonetheless, he should have bought water from someplace, as in any other case, survival would have been unattainable. Maybe, he licked dew or rainwater was capable of enter his jail? For sure, he’d had no meals for 2 months, judging by his gaunt state. Two months!!

His legs had been bandaged up, an IV fed fluids and far wanted nutritional vitamins into his veins. I sat there shocked, looking at not even half the cat Mussi was. I nonetheless couldn’t imagine he was again and alive. It took me a number of days to understand that. For fairly some time I suffered from nightmares concerning the hunger camp he was locked in. Though, I used to be overjoyed about his return, the images of his jail took some time to fade.

The vets and workers on the college animal hospital in Zurich gave Mussi the perfect care! They had been improbable! Mussi even obtained each day bodily remedy to get his muscle tissues and nerves working once more. And he wished to dwell! That was an important ingredient. And he was liked and obtained healings from many family and friends every day.

The worst drawback was his extreme deficiency in Thiamine, a necessary B vitamin for cats. Depletion of such causes ataxia (loss or coordination), seizures, lack of ability to boost the pinnacle and twitching. Mussi suffered from all of the above. B1 or Thiamine is just not saved in a cat’s physique and is shortly depleted. Two months of hunger led to extreme B1 deficiency. The drip would assist, however it took time.

Vets and workers shook their heads in disbelief about Mussi’s survival. They had been shocked on the power and willpower of this cat. They needed to admit that they’d by no means seen a case like him earlier than.

I visited the American affected person day-after-day within the hospital. For 5 days, he was too apathetic and exhausted to note a lot round him. He simply slept. Any efforts on his half to attempt to transfer resulted in seizure-like assaults, which left him annoyed.

Many, many associates, power and Pranic healers, Reiki masters saved sending Mussi therapeutic power and in doing so sped up his restoration. These outstanding folks had helped within the seek for Mussi all alongside. Maybe, it’s these miracle employees who helped Mussi survive for 2 months in a darkish basement? Will be the Pranic power saved him alive as we saved sending all of it that point he was lacking too. I’m deeply grateful to everybody who helped and supported the search and restoration, in spirit, mentally, bodily or energetically.

After one week, Mussi’s lethargy lifted a bit, and so did his head. He was capable of bend the pinnacle back and forth and his eyes adopted me slowly however curiously. One other day after, Mussi bought up on his shaven (to insert the IV), skinny legs and pressed his behind towards my scratching hand. “Wow!” I cried out in amazement. Mussi was again!

Mussi bought up and walked across the whole room after solely two weeks within the hospital! What an unbelievable cat. When he arrived on April 11, 2013, the vets thought him extra in nirvana than right here on Earth. And solely two weeks later, the Chicago kitty was again on his paws!

Across the similar time, I had an extended dialogue with one of many pleasant vets on the hospital. He was recovering in a short time, he mentioned, unusually shortly. The workers on the hospital knew Mussi as Miracle Mussi, a real hero. Though, he suffered a number of setbacks, like infected, overworked pancreas or a low pink blood cell depend, nothing may cease Mussi now from a complete comeback. He was decided to come back dwelling and get his previous, candy life again. And so he did, on Could 3, 2013 – Mussi arrived at dwelling.
