"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 -


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.
