"Bisquit", DSH, Grey with White Paws, Palo Alto - Found!
Bisquit is a solid grey DSH male with white paws and a white chest. He is not wearing a collar nor is he microchipped. He is approximately 12-13 years old and he has a tattoo in his ear by a vet in Canada. He is an indoor only cat. He escaped by accident when his people were on vacation and the caretaker left a door open. No sightings had been made of Bisquit. There are two other cats in the home.
He had been missing for almost two weeks when I was called due to his people being out of the country and only recently arriving home to start the search. No posters, flyers or ads had been put up until they got home and started their search.
We tracked Bisquit for over six hours all over Palo Alto, through the campus, through the medical center, crossing several busy streets, through neighborhoods, business parks and then back near his home within a few blocks when I was told to stop the search by his person.
When I arrived back at their home, she said she had received a call that a couple nearby in their apartment complex had Bisquit and would bring him back. I was told they had him for about four days after he ran into their front garden and stayed there. They were going to take him to the vet to check for a microchip when they decided to go out and look for flyers. That is when they saw the flyers put up by Bisquit's people.
The photos above were taken with an iphone by the people who found Bisquit shortly after they brought him home.
