Sonny has been missing for three months now

This is a more recent composite photo of Sonny. His markings get darker with time.


Our beloved Sonny is still missing. It was three months ago, on October 25, 2012, that I last saw him.

We haven’t given up hope. I have distributed about 600 door hangers near our home over the past couple of months. When Sonny first when missing, I distributed fliers to the closest 30 or so homes; and put up posters and craigslist ads. I have been in all the adjacent homes’ yards and other yards where Sonny had been seen before his disappearance. I had a trailcam set up for the first couple of months, and have been following advice from the MissingCatAssistance Yahoo Group (see my “Resources” page for more helpful links).

SonnySonny was last seen early Thu, Oct 25 at our home on the 300 block of Robinwood Lane near Hayne, in Hillsborough. He’s an indoor/outdoor cat, but he has always come in at night. We have a four-way cat door we keep locked at night.

Sonny is a shorthair Siamese/Marbled Tabby mix, white with tan markings, a dark brown tail with a white ring near the end, and blue eyes. He is two years old and he weighed 9 lbs. when he disappeared. He was not wearing a collar.

Sonny is very skittish and afraid of strangers, so he would probably not let you approach him if you saw him. But he is a very sweet and gentle cat.

We are desperate to know what happened to him, even if it’s bad news. I visit the PHS every week or two ¬†even though Sonny has a HomeAgain microchip.

Sonny has a brother Teddy who has similar markings but Teddy is darker brown. We have gotten reports from neighbors of Teddy being seen since 10-25, but no reports of Sonny being seen. Nine Lives Foundation (a wonderful organization) saved these brothers from being euthanized at a shelter as stray kittens because they were born with defective eyelids, which have since been surgically improved. Sonny’s eyes still look “different,” but he can see fine. He is supposed to be getting severe dry eye gel applied 3x daily though. Read more about Sonny and Teddy’s history

SonnyThank you for helping us find Sonny, he is an important part of our family and we miss him a lot. His brother probably misses him too, they were inseparable.

Please call or text 650-400-8561 any time of day or night, email Sonny94010@gmail.com if you think you have seen Sonny since Thu, Oct 25.

Thank you!

LARGE REWARD OFFERED!

Cats captured on trail cam, just in case they’re lost cats

2 Jan

Here are some of the cats captured on a trail cam near Tartan Trail & Black Mountain Road in December. They are most likely either outdoor-access pets or strays, but I’m posting them on the off chance they are former pets who got lost. We also had the trail cam set up in our driveway the first few weeks after Sonny disappeared, but only captured raccoons, a skunk, and our neighbor’s outdoor-only cat who came by nightly to wait for the mackerel to be put out. No other cats ate the food. We must not have many strays close to our house.
