Batley Burton said “It’s been a really sad day for me. My Wee Man Whiskey disappeared 4 days ago. In spite of constant searches we couldn’t find him. He was found today . In the creek. Clearly he had a seizure( he was on meds) and fell in. So terribly sad. He was our Carer Cat who always took care of any cats who were unwell. What a precious wee man. RIP my precious little man.”
Earlier in the week, radio DJ, Jay-Jay Feeney took to Neighbourly to help with the search for the missing cat.
She posted that the cat had gone missing from the Huapai/Kumeu area and any information would be passed on to Batley Burton.
Batley Burton had talked about her efforts towards cat rescue on The Real Housewives of Auckland.
