"Sergeant Pepper", Norwegian Forest Cat, Orange, Oakland - Found!


_________________________________________________________________

Sergeant Pepper is an eight year old, orange and white Norwegian Forest Cat. He and his housemate and his person had just arrived to their new home from a plane ride. Pepper was let out of his crate and immediately run underneath an elevated floor, which was in a large warehouse.

I said I would come out and see if Pepper was still inside the warehouse or had left to the outside.

I was called about 24 hours later and told that Pepper was found still inside the warehouse.

"Frankie", Tabby, Orange, Oakland - Found!

"Hi Jackie,

Just wanted to let you know that Frankie came home this evening, a
little thin but not much the worse for wear.  We had just spent the
afternoon posting new flyers all over our neighborhood and where we
left his trail, came home, and we started hearing meowing about an
hour after dark.  Sure enough, it was him!

Thanks again for your assistance and encouragement. You helped me stay
hopeful for the ending I wished for!

Best of luck to you in your future searches -

Barbara"

Frankie is a twelve year old, indoor only, orange tabby DSH. He is not wearing a collar and is not microchipped.

He got out by accident late one night when the front door did not close fully.

There were no sightings of Frankie after he went missing.

We found a track leading from the front door to behind the apartment building and then behind a neighboring apartment building and out to the street from there. The track continued from several miles all around Oakland. Frankie's people were going out of town the next day for a week.

About two weeks later I got an email from Frankie's person that Frankie was found back at his  home. He appeared very thin, but did recognize them.

"Sam", Siamese, Seal Point, San Francisco - Found!

Update:
About one week after the search, I received an email that Sam had been found a few blocks from his home. I said that all of her walks around paid off and Sam made his way back home. She did not believe that Sam was ever missing from nearby his home, and felt that Dino was never tracking Sam's scent. I reminded her of all the sightings of Sam along the way, and the various spots. She felt it was another Siamese that people were seeing.



Sam is a 15 year old, indoor only, Seal Point Siamese. He is not wearing a collar and is not microchipped.

He got out by accident one night as one of the doors was left open. Both cats got out, and one was found nearby within the first 24 hours.

There were a couple of sightings of Sam within three days of being missing. On my way to the search, there was another sighting of Sam, so we started the search from there.

We found a track leading away. While on this search, three more people were positive they saw Sam along the track we were following.
