"Bella", Calico, Manx, South San Francisco

Bella is an indoor only, two year old, spayed and microchipped Calico Manx with a stubby tail. She was last seen around midnight at home.

No sightings had been called in of Bella.

When we got to the top of Greenpark Terrace, we found a large water holding tank. After checking multiple times and different areas, Dino indicated that there was no track leading out of the tank area or the fenced in area. We were able to find a contact for the company managing the tank, and they were able to send out a person to let us into the fenced in area. We did find Bella's track leading into the fenced in area and around and up on to the tiered landscaping, but then the track stopped just at the gate. The employee did confirm that another employee was there the past Friday, two days after Bella went missing, to do regular maintenance on the tank. He said that he would talk to that employee to confirm if they saw a cat in the area, or maybe one who could have jumped into their truck. Bella could have jumped out of the truck anywhere along the way.

Four days after the search, Bella's person received a call that a cat of Bella's description was seen hanging out at a feeding station in the general area of her home, which is a very large marina with large parks along the bay. The employee of the company managing the water tank never called her back. I suggested putting out traps at the feeding station to attempt to catch her.

Bella could have jumped out of the work truck anywhere along the way, and made it back to the general area of the marina.

There was a problem with the GPS that day, and the tracking did not kick in until up along Sister Cities Blvd, but Bella was lost back at the marina on the other side of the freeway along Oyster Point Blvd and Oyster Point Park.
