Pinkie, the wandering cat that calls the Applegate Zoo her sometime home, disappeared again Saturday, but was found by a kind soul and is back home again.
City spokesman Mike Conway said Pinkie is more of an adventurous soul than the other cats that have called the zoo home in the past.
"She has some latent explorer in her," Conway said.
The little six-toed cat was found a few blocks away from the zoo Saturday, and Conway said Pinky will now be locked up at night to keep her safe.
But if she disappears from the zoo again, Conway said the little cat may be looking for a new home.
"If she tries to find out what the outside world is like we will find a good home for her," Conway said. "And we do want to thank the people who brought her back."
