Mogley Missing from Mount Pleasant

“Hello neighbors! Sadly, our cat Mogley, a wonderful and adventurous indoor/outdoor fellow, has been missing since the weekend. [Lamont St NW at 19th St NW] He is a gray American shorthair cat, with little white fur boots and a very long tail. If anyone has taken him in or seen him over the past few days, please let us know ASAP! This little man is the center of our lives and we are missing him very much.”

    Does he have a strangely long muzzle? I think my husband and I saw him last night (around 9pm) on Park Road between 14th & 16th. He was very friendly – lots of purring and rubbing.

      Thank you again for reaching out! The cat on Park was a spitting image of Mogley but sadly not our guy. Thanks for helping, though!

    That cat isn’t grey, he’s a brown tabby. That may help in finding him.

    • Beth

      He’s an American shorthair, and he does have some brown fur, but is mostly gray, black, and white.

    I saw a cat at catholic university yesterday but didn’t see what it looked like. It hid under some bushes. I’ll be on the lookout!

      Thanks for reaching out! Appreciate the tip.

    Every so often we go through a spate of missing cats in Mt. Pleasant and Adams Morgan. It could be a coincidence, I do find it a bit odd that these all happen in bunches.

    If you haven’t done so send a message to the Mt. P yahoo group to get the word out. Will keep an eye out! Hope Mogley is found soon.

      We’ve put up a message on the Yahoo group, thanks for your support!

    Please stop letting your cats out. This has become a recurring theme here.

      Please stop giving unsolicited advice. It is unhelpful and disrespectful. Mogley was born in a Vermont barn and enjoys nothing more than roaming outside. You know nothing about him and how he behaves when forced to be inside.

      I hope Pcat’s advice was directed at cat owners in general and not at Mogley’s owners.
      That advice is probably most applicable to someone getting a new cat — cats that are already accustomed to being indoor/outdoor might not adapt so well to suddenly being indoor-only.
      _If_ a cat will tolerate being indoor-only — like, if it’s been raised indoors since kittenhood, or if it’s an adult cat that doesn’t mind being indoor-only — then the owner should keep it indoors. But there are some cats that absolutely will not tolerate being indoor-only.

    I thought I saw a cat like this at Park and Mount Pleasant street last night around 6pm. Good luck!

      Thank you, Whitney! We’ll check around. Appreciate your help!
