Cat that reads

Posted on Friday, July 26, 2013 by No comments yet

#VT – “We just want to thank everyone who reported sitings of our wayward cat, Zoe. She decided to return early Tuesday morning completely happy, healthy and none-the-worse for her travels after almost three weeks away. Clearly, she reads Front Porch Forum.”

Emergency notices on NY FPF

Posted on Wednesday, July 17, 2013 by No comments yet

Last Thursday’s extra posting on FPF (an alert to the village’s water shut-off) saved me a much inconvenience. I was preparing lots of food for a big family reunion meal. Thanks to FPF’s alert, we had drawn a goodly supply of water before the shut-off came. Although the Post Star newspaper and the hand-delivered notices came on Friday, the Argyle FPF was our first alert—and it saved me a lot of frustration.

The folks in Argyle, NY make great use of their Front Porch Forum, as shown by today’s posting above.

Lost calf reunited with mama cow in Williston

#VT – We see lost animal postings every day on Front Porch Forum across Vermont.  Here’s a follow-up posting about a lost cat in Williston today…

Thank you everyone who responded! Suki is now home safe and sound:) I can’t thank you enough!

But in the same Williston FPF there was a different kind of lost animal posting…

We received mother and baby calf Saturday afternoon and the calf ran off minutes after it was unloaded. It has been seen on the VAST trail between Christmas Lane in Williston and Lake Iroquois. It is about 3 months old and brown and white. It will run as soon as is sees people but we need to try to get it back to mama who is calling for her calf. Please call if seen.

Followed by…

Are you missing a calf? She was in the pasture with my cows this morning-now inside the barn.

Needless to say, a happy reunion soon followed.
