Austin, TX – A cat has been reunited with her owner after two frightening days on her own. As reported by WSAZ News, Palash Pandey took his cat, Tux, to a veterinary appointment on Saturday in a Lyft vehicle – before Pandey could remove Tux’s carrier from the car, the driver left.
“Just walking from one door to the other and just doing that, he started peeling off. I’m running behind him banging on his doors and banging on his windows, and he just takes off.”
Lyft assisted Pandey in his search efforts – sending out alerts and hiring investigators to track the missing cat down.
On Monday, the search effort was finally met with success.
Lyft investigators found Tux a mile from the veterinary clinic – she was no longer in her carrier, but she was not injured. Pandey has commented on the frightening ordeal:
“I tried communicating with him in every way possible, and he did not respond to me. He only called me back once police called him first,”
The company is investigating the incident.
