Despite a custody battle over the cat, between Quah and an Auckland social media doyen, has involved public posts, police, demands for DNA tests, visitation rights and finally went to court with the Disputes Tribunal ordering Chloe be returned to Quah.
Quah writes on her facebook, " Davidsons, if you are reading this. Thank you for taking care of my baby for 9 months. She has been on a long holiday but thank you for returning her to me unharmed and in one piece. Merry Christmas to you."
I like this, such graciousness. Paki Paki.
Christmas could not be better for Auckland woman Joyce Quah who was reunited with her beloved cat Chloe after a year-long tussle for ownership.
Quah picked up her pedigree chinchilla persian cat on Wednesday evening at the Point Chevalier Veterinary Clinic after she went missing from her home almost a year ago.
Quah was overwhelmed to be reunited with her "baby".
She said Chloe seemed to recognise her, and although her coat had a few knots, she seemed alright.
"I've booked a visit to the vets for her to be checked over tomorrow."
Quah, 25, was ecstatic to learn the tribunal ruled in her favour on Wednesday morning.
"I'm so happy! I'm shouting and crying and hugging my other cat, I'm getting my baby back!" Quah said.
This scenario actually happened to me when I was in high school. My big sister and her then boyfriend went for a long walk. At about 2 kilometers from home, a dog followed them home.
We fed the dog together with our own dogs. When mother drove the car, it would follow her until she reached the main road. It returned to our house. It was this ritual for a few months.
One evening, Margaret and I cycled to town, some 3 kilometers away. It followed us even to the main road. On our way back along Queensway, a blue car started stopped, the dog bolted to the car. The occupants threw darts with their eyes. They insinuated that we had stolen their dog.
We cried, we had hoped they would have come and asked us our side of the story.
