Mitaine (mee-ten) ran away from home saturday the 19th of november when my foster daughter was moving in. She hasn't been seen since and we live in from of the soccer pitch. She is absolutely loving, extremely docile, too friendly, spayed, declawed and my 3 boys' favorite cat. She has bright yellow eyes, short but poofy fur,and barely weighs 5 pounds. She just had her shots and all her preventive treatments for worms and fleas.

She would pretty much follow anyone and other cats and scared of cars.

Please please, help us find mitaine! We miss her dearly! We hung her christmas stocking this afternoon in the hope that we will find her soon!

If you can put her litterbox and/or a worn but unwashed t shirt or pair of smelly shoes of yours out on the deck this may help lead her home :fingerscr

Go around the neighbourhood at dusk/dawn calling her, rattling a treat container or tap a spoon on her dish or tin of food. Bring a flashlight to pick up the shine off her eyes from under cars/decks/bushes or up trees.

If you can poster the neighbourhood, plus leave one w/ local businesses, pet supply stores, groomers, grocery stores, vets & all animal shelters in the area that will help garner attention that this kitty has a home who wants her back

Put/hand out lots of posters at the soccer field as a child may have taken her home thinking she was a stray.

Please visit the animal shelters in person often times the shelters are understaffed/over worked with so many animals/requests etc they may not have the time to personally look into each phone call or an emergency/something comes up in the meantime & the request gets overlooked.

Going in person means you can visit & identify the cat right away, if an animal comes in terrified it may act out of character & be labeled as sick or a feral and not be placed with the general population please ask to see these areas as well.

:goodvibes: & :fingerscr She is absolutely adorable :cloud9:
