Yesterday was a normal hot day  in Sarasota, Florida when this incident happened at a local cat shelter the Cat Depot.  One of the cats there Zeke whom has free reign of the office likes to walk across and lay across the electronics in the office.  Yesterday, he did just that on the Telephone accidentally calling 911 in the process.  When the operator on the other end picks up hears only a busy signal, immediately calls the number back to see if there was an emergency or not.

To the bewilderment of the person at the Cat Depot whom had answered the call, and went to see if there was an actual emergency, she went to the office where the call had come from knowing that that person had gone on lunch and was not in the office.  When she arrived in the office, she saw that the phone was off the hook and Zeke was laying across the phone.  It was then that she came to the conclusion that Zeke had accidentally called 911.

That was how the local news station had picked up on the story.  It was a slow day with not much news to report, so the boss there told them to run the story.  In the report, they had said that Zeke wanted a home so badly that he called for help.  At the time of the writing of this article, Zeke is up for adoption for $75 I believe.  I hope that this post and the news story helps to find this mischievous kitty a forever home. 🙂

Below is the link to the clip of the news broadcast that featured this extraordinary kitty. 🙂

I really do hope that Zeke finds a forever home, no kitty should be without one. 🙂
