We lost our cat near Sherwood Park, AB on July 22, 2012
We are sick with worry since our neutered male medium-long haired black/brown/white tabby cat went missing Sunday morning on July 22, 2012.
He is distinctive in that his tail was shortened by the vet after an accident (It is about 6" long or so and stubby).
He was wearing a black collar with a large red heart identification tag. The tag had our address and his name, Simba, on it. He was last seen at our home in Dasmarinas Estates on RR 222 and Twp Rd 522 which is about 6 miles East of Sherwood Park. He has a tatoo in his ear YU 035.
We are offering a substantial reward for any tip leading to his safe return.
Unfortunately he is a bit shy and nervous and is cautious when approached. We love him dearly and would so appreciate help with his safe return.

Yes, we think he's beautiful. All five of us miss him so much. Thank you for your kind words and support. I did check the lost and found suggestions so we are hoping one of them will bring Simba back to us.

If you can put his litterbox and/or a worn but unwashed t shirt or pair of smelly shoes of yours out on the deck this may help lead him home
Go around the neighbourhood at dusk/dawn calling him, rattling a treat container or tap a spoon on his dish or tin of food. Bring a flashlight to pick up the shine off his eyes from under cars/decks/bushes or up trees.
If you can poster the neighbourhood, plus leave one w/ local businesses, schools, pet supply stores, grocery stores, bus stops, vets & all animal shelters in the area that will help garner attention that this kitty has a home who wants him back
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.
Good luck & :goodvibes:

Thank you for the suggestions, especially about visiting the animal shelters in person in case the staff there are too busy and something is overlooked.
I can't tell you how much we miss Simba. Wish us luck!

Check out the Edmonton Humane society they take in the strays from Sherwood Park area. On their website where they have the animals they will also show pictures of the strays that have come in.

Thank you pbpatti for the information,
I have been checking the photos of the animals at the humane society regularily. I will be going down to the shelter tomorrow to take a look at all the kitties there. I am afraid I may be missing other resources out there so I appreciate any suggestions you or anyone else might have.
