“In the video chat, after the man opened the door Maomao meowed so miserably, no one has been home for more than a dozen days…” he said.
More than 2,000 people also joined a group created by the Wuhan Small Animal Protection Association on Chinese chat app QQ to look for “kind-hearted people” willing to feed pets left behind in Wuhan by owners unable to enter the city.
One member on Monday asked if anyone would be willing to feed a pet snake. “I’m worried to death” the user, who posted anonymously, said. “I didn’t let him hibernate this winter because he’s a baby snake.”
That post had no takers as of late Monday.
“If any cats and dogs are stranded and you can let me in, I can help you feed them on livestream,” wrote Katherine Cui in eastern Zhejiang province — where the city of Wenzhou was placed under a similar lockdown to Wuhan on Sunday.
