Lost cat: Montreal area
 
My cat was staying with a friend in the area of Rue De La Montagne and escaped out of her window. He is a male grey neutered cat of approx two years age who will answer to the name Byron. His tail is faintly ringed. He may have a blue collar with paw-prints but could have lost it. He has his claws and is microchipped to a UK address. He could be anywhere by now so please if you see a grey cat fitting his description please email me right away at [email]lornaswebster@gmail.com[/email]. A reward is offered for him. I have had him since he was tiny and am going out of my mind with worry. Please be alert and email me even if you just suspect.

Here is a picture of him:

Hi Lorna. Sorry to hear about your cat. You should put posters up with his picture around the neighborhood. You can also take the posters to the post office and for a fee they will deliver them with the regular mail so the word gets out. Also, call the vets and shelters in the area, someone might have found him and called. Hope you find him soon, don't give up.

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 :fingerscr

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 [B]in person[/B] 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: & :fingerscr

If not already done, post on Petluck.ca.
Many animals have been re-united through them.
Good luck.

Thank you so much everyone for your advice. We received a call from the doorman of the building that a grey cat had been hit by a car and he found it. Unfortunately as it was Berger Blanc who put the cat to sleep, we have no way of knowing if it was our Byron. It seems likely as he was near the building, but I have no idea if I should keep looking or not.

Both hubby and I are in pieces and desperately needing some closure, but Berger Blanc can not even tell us if the cat was male or not.

I'm so sorry to hear this update. It seems likely it could have been your kitty. I wouldn't give up just yet though. You never know. But it is hard to not have closure one way or the other. Hugs to you for your heartache.

I'm so sorry to hear this might be your kitty, hopefully you've received more news since your last posting...keeping my fingers crossed that it wasn't your cat :fingerscr:fingerscr:fingerscr
