Hi All,

Sadly, my beloved cat Barney managed to sneak out of our house unnoticed the evening of Jan 30th. He is an indoor cat and has not been outside since before we had adopted him almost five years ago (he was a stray). He is a beautiful grey/black/brown tabby with green eyes, and a small tick missing from his left ear. Please see attached photos. He is neutered, not de-clawed and very friendly. I am beside myself with worry as weather has been very cold/snowy since he escaped.
If you think you may have found him, please let me know as we are hoping for his safe return as soon as possible.

Thanks so much.

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:
