Owner Finds A Paper Collar Attached To Her Cat’s Neck After She Returns Home From Toby Carvery Interview With Owner

Cole Clark from the UK has always allowed her long-haired Siberian feline to go out on her own without worrying about her pastime. However, one weekend, 11-year-old Tula arrived home with a paper collar attached. Clark unraveled it and found a note dated August 16, which said: “Does this cat have a home. Always at Toby Carvery.” Scroll down for Bored Panda’s interview with Tula’s owner Cole Clark!

The truth came out when one day, her owner found a paper collar attached with a note

The note completely changed the game and revealed that Tula has been living a secret life apart from her owner. This life apparently was begging for food at the local Toby Carvery restaurant in Abbey Meads, Swindon. “When I found out Tula was frequenting the Carvery, I was hugely amused and not overly surprised. She will go wherever her quest for meat takes her,” said Clark to Bored Panda.

The note was from Toby Carvery

When Clark found out that Tula was a frequent visitor at Toby Carvery, she went down to the restaurant to explain that she wasn’t a stray cat. When asked how the staff reacted, she said: “The staff were thrilled that she wasn’t a stray and told me that they had tried to pick her up by bribing her with prawns, but she ate the prawns, then ran off! Tula is normally at the carvery for lunchtime and often dinner time. She even pops back for supper sometimes.”

The 41-year-old explained that it’s not the first time that Tula has asked for food from strangers. Even though she has always had a warm place to sleep, good quality food, and a loving owner, she would still search for an extra snack. “Tula has a history of following her nose and used to frequent an old people’s home where the old folks would feed her meat paste sandwiches!”

“She is ultimately a total queen of a cat. She has a definite sense of cat entitlement and turns her nose up at anything less than meat! She is beautiful but aloof… Unless you have food! Her cat brothers haven’t yet spotted her scam and haven’t followed her to Toby yet, but she did bring them home a sausage the other evening,” said Clark about Tula’s personality. It seems that this beautiful feline has quite a character, which helps her on her food quests!

Outdoor cats will often have more than one 'home' in their territory, in case the weather gets bad, they get hungry or tired, or they need a nap. My first cat Thomas was a barn cat we brought to NJ with us from WV. He lived 20 long years, carousing, sometimes away for a day or two (nerve wracking, but it was his nature). When he passed, peacefully, we began to see his photo on Lost Cat posters here and there--but with different contact info. They were his other families, looking for him. We called everyone to let them know. Shared some wonderful stories with them.
