Video transcript

- As soon as I left, I was like, what am I going to do with sage. And I tried to organize if neighbors could take care of her until I knew what I was going to do with her. And I just couldn't fathom leaving her, but I had to. I couldn't bring her in the car, because she would have been run over by cars. You see people coming and going, I couldn't release her just to-- she wouldn't stay in the car.

I wasn't going to put her at risk. So the only thing that I could safely do for her was to leave her in the foyer with food and kitty litter. And I was like, oh my God, I can't believe I'm doing this to you.

- After hearing about Sage and Cathy, it was a group of strangers from cat rescue group Mini Kitty Commune who offered to help. They were able to find temporary accommodation for Sage and a place for Cathy to live.

- How did it go today? I've been wanting to ask.

- Today I've found accommodation.

- Wow.

- And it's not even expensive.

- When does that start?

- Tonight.

- Oh you're going there tonight? Far out.

- I know.

- So you're not sleeping here tonight?

- No

- How long have you been here for?

- Since 26, I think four days or five days, four nights.

- Wow. And this has come through someone seeing the post.

- Yeah.

- And it's secure accommodation?

- Yeah. Wow. All right, we'd better finish up. You've got a massive drive and you've got to work tomorrow.

- I know.
