Family covers city looking for lost cat

When I got home from work Wednesday, there was a poster in my mailbox.

Someone was looking for a lost female cat.

She has spots and a striped tale and she is diabetic.

When I took my son to dance class clear the other side of the city, there was the same poster on a hydro pole.

Obviously, this cat is beloved.

The last line on the poster said a three-year-old boy is sad because he left the door open.

Call 519-200-2487 if you see a cat fitting this description.

I remember how glad I was as a child when we found our lost dog at the dog pound.

I think we’ve all had pets we’ve treasured and loved … and lost.

  1. Kathy, have you checked the phone number to see if it is a family with a young
    child or something else before recommending it ? Did your neighbours get one t
    oo, or only the blog journalist ?
    Would a family advertise this way that there is a 3 year old in the home ?
    That seems to be a lot of territory for a paper poster to be distributed to, and
    reverse-number search suggests the number is located near Dundas and Ridout,
    not much of a residential area.
    – Be interested in what you turn up.

  2. Searching the description of the animal, on kijiji find photo

    LOST FEMALE, WHITE WITH TABBY SPOTS AND STRIPED TAIL AND
    FRECKLE ON NOSE. OUR 3 YEAR OLD LEFT THE DOOR OPEN MON
    MAY 7 AT APPROXIMATELY 2 PM. AND SHE RAN OUT. POND MILLS AND
    THOMPSON AREA. SHE IS DIABETIC AND NEEDS HER MEDICATION.
    HER NAME IS SOBE. WE ARE HEARTBROKEN SO IF YOU SEE HER
    PLEASE CONTACT US. 519-200-2487]
    Sounds real enough here. If this works it’ll be very interesting to see how far
    the cat got. So is the online Reverse number system unreliable?
    We assume you live in that general area and a mailbox poster campaign
    is reasonable, although one all the way across the city is really reaching out.
    Eagerly await the next report .

  3. I talked to the woman who distributed the posters. They went to homes in the neighbourhood but were surprised to find one in the North end, although they have friends with a business in the area who may have tacked it up.
    The cat is still missing so if anyone sees her, please call the above number.

  4. She must have been pleased to find the plea was picked up by a blog.
    Good luck to them in their search.

  5. Thank you Kathy for putting the word out to the community through your blog. I am the owner of the missing cat. I adopted SoBe 12 years ago in Windsor just after I finished college. She has been my best mate through life’s ups and downs and we have shared so many fond memories together. My son is 3 and adores her and misses her a lot and feels bad for leaving the door open which is how she got out. She is super friendly and I can only hope that she is safe in warm in someone else’s home until she can escape again and find her way back to us.
    I understand the skepticism of some as this is one crazy world we live in these days. I can assure you that I would never publicize any of my information unless it was for something as important as finding my best girl. I went to animal control and put information on the poster that was recommended by their handout for missing animals. I don’t know however, how a poster got up across town as I only distributed in the area I live in, but maybe someone is trying to help which is appreciated. She is a pretty smart cat and maybe she wanted to go for a bus ride!?
    For now we will keep searching and praying for her to come home safe.

  6. Travy – thanks for filling us in.
    No skepticism re cat enthusiasm especially house cats which sneak out, just
    tried the Reverse Number device for first time and got confusing information.
    (To be honest, it was the irrelevant story about the little child being at fault that
    made me wonder if it is really local or just someone pranking the blog with a paper
    version of something just found on google.. And the lack of a name for the animal.
    Must be getting too suspicious of online information !)
    Hope the extra awareness helps reach anyone who knows of SoBe’s whereabouts
    and she is returned to your family. Would be interested in how the person learned
    of the owner, in this mix of paper and postings. Regards.
