To a child, losing a beloved stuffed animal can be traumatizing.
This is why when Mitchell Rubin bumped into an abandoned stuffed animal at Bradley International Airport, he took to Facebook to post that he had found a lost stuffed kitty.
The intention of the post: To return the stuffed cat to his beloved owner.
It says that the kitty was “dropped by his little friend,” and has amnesia due to the fall.
“People were walking right over me,” the post describes.
It goes onto say that it was almost stepped on by people who were “rolling their luggage over me.” said Mitchell Rubin.
The post also says that he found it lying on the departure side of the “crosswalk that led from the parking garage to the American Airlines terminal” on July 24.
The post ends with the stuffed cat asking if “so if anybody in the Facebook World recognizes me, please help me find my family,” and if not, to please share.
That post was shared over 20,000 times. Looking through the comments, several people from all over the country have shared it to try to get this kitty back home.
However, no such luck. Recently, Rubin posted that the kitty was still with him.
Rubin was touched about how many people shared the post. But, he remains optimistic that he will be reunited with his family soon.
