Very Distinct Missing Cat from Columbia Heights

Mark asks folks to keep an eye out for:

“My cat, Hershey, left the house this morning, Sat, around 10 am. Has not been seen since. 3400 Holmead. 301-807-1500 or email M1924(at)hotmail.com”

Ed. Note: Please keep close attention to your pets over the 4th of July as many get spooked and run during the many fireworks.

    These missing-pet posts break my heart because our pets mean so much to us. Good luck finding Hershey!

    An indoor cat that escapes is often hiding very close. (Though they can find some crazy hiding places, and may be too scared to come when called. ) Best of luck in your search, yes tonight will be a horror show for pets.

      Agree! I lost my darling Siamese years ago when she slipped out my apartment door behind me as I was leaving (I didn’t see her do it). I put out ads in the Washington Post and hired a tracker, etc…she was missing for weeks and I had a pit in my stomach the whole time. Turned out she was hiding in a hole under the apartment’s staircase that I never knew was there. A woman luckily saw my fliers in the building and saw my cat’s tail going into the crawl space; otherwise I might have never gotten her back (she was dehydrated but otherwise okay and lived many years after!).

      So, flier everywhere you can, put out food with a camera (I bought one of those little wildlife motion activated cameras…they’re pretty cheap and strap to a tree or pole). And let us know if we can help! <3

        Oh, and you probably already did this, but send a photo to the humane society (both locations) so they can call you if she/he gets picked up and brought in. Good luck!
