The police were able to apprehend the suspect, who was found with scratches and stolen items from the Pearl’s residence.

Catching the Criminal

Adam Pearl, a resident of Meridian, found Joey when he was just a week old, abandoned and near the brink of death.

The Advent of Joey

Adam and his wife Carmen took Joey in, nurturing him with feeds every two hours and providing him with a loving home.

Joey’s personality blossomed, resembling that of a cat, seeking affection and climbing up legs when he craved attention.

Joey became more than just a pet. He developed a fondness for spinach and had a penchant for burying nuts in the houseplants.

A Beloved Family Member
