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

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.

We continued the search where we left off the day before.

I explained to Sam's person that Sam could track her scent along the way and attempt to make his way back  home. She walked several days in the area where we were tracking Sam
