Lost Cat Blue Reunited with Family after 2 1/2 Years!

26 Nov

It warmed my heart to get an emal from the owner that Blue showed up at their house after being gone for 2 1/2 years, and just in time for the holidays! Here is what the owner wrote:

“I wanted to let you know that, after 2 1/2 years of being missing, our cat Blue came home on Monday!!
We never gave up hope, and thought we had a couple of sightings over the years, but for now he is back.  We even had his chip scanned at the Humane Society to get 100% confirmation.  The folks at the shelter were in disbelief.
We will never know where Blue’s travels took him… if he adopted another family, or was living off the land (he always was a skilled hunter).  His parents were feral and so he has that inclination in his DNA.
……never, never, never give up hope!”Boo is Back

One-Year Anniversary of Sonny’s Disappearance

28 Oct

It has been a whole year now since Sonny went missing. Last night I had a dream that I had found him. I still think about him every day, and wonder what happened to him. I’ve had a craigslist ad up for most of the past year, but have never gotten any confirmed sightings. I also keep the ad up to help publicize the other missing cats on this site, none of whom have been found to my knowledge.

I take comfort in having Sonny’s brother and our other cat Max, but really miss seeing Teddy and Sonny playing and cuddling together. That can never be replaced.

Missing Cat Felicity – Belmont Hills July 9, 2013

26 Aug

FELICITY is small and she has a white chest/stomach/nose/mouth/chin/4 white legs and black over her eyes, ears, back and a white tip on her black tail. She might be hiding in your back yard. Could she have been mistaken as a stray? REWARD!

Coyote Advisory

3 Jun

We have seen coyotes in the open space / woods near the intersection of Denise & Robinwood. Just want neighbors with pets to be aware and be cautious if you let your cats stay out at night, especially.

If Sonny was killed by a coyote, we will never know.

Sonny Missing 5 1/2 Months Now

7 Apr

Sonny as a kitten in foster care. It’s amazing how much darker he got as he got older, that’s a trait of Siamese cats I was told. His shelter name was Toby.

There have not been any further reported sightings in the Churchill area. A big THANKS to Churchill neighbors Y. and T. for sending me photos of cats on their property and for all the other neighbors who are keeping an eye out for Sonny.

Thank you also to kind neighbor S. S. who came over to give us tips and offered to lend us his humane trap.

We are very grateful for the wonderful people in our community who have helped us and given us encouragement that Sonny will be home with us some day.


This is what Sonny looks like now (though he would probably have lost weight).

Last Monday, I made the painful decision to discontinue Sonny’s pet health insurance with Healthy Paws. I was planning to wait at least six months, but I got an email with the yearly rate increase for the premiums, so I thought it would be a good time to stop. This  doesn’t mean I’ve given up hope, it just seemed like the practical thing to do at this point.

Possible Sonny Sighting, Churchill Drive

21 Mar

I got an email from someone who saw a cat who looks like Sonny on Churchill Drive near Persimmon Ct. on Tuesday, March 19 (thank you very much, E.).

I had put up a poster on Summit & Skyline a couple days before that.

I’m going to follow up with another poster and door hangers near the location on Churchill. If anyone reading this lives near there and knows of a cat that matches Sonny’s description, could you please let me know? I would also be interested in knowing about people who feed strays in that area.


Map of Sonny Door Hanger Distribution

20 Mar

As of today, I’ve distributed about 650 of the 1,000 door hangers, as highlighted on the map.

I spoke to someone a few weeks ago who feeds strays near the large wooded area bordered by Robin Rd and Pinehill, but they hadn’t seen a cat who looks like Sonny.

Thank you to all the kind people who have called with possible sightings.

If anyone knows people who feed strays / feral cats, especially in the Carolands area, could you please let me know? I would keep their information private and not post it here. I’m finding there are more feral cats in Hillsborough than I would have thought. Some of those cats could be former pets.
