"Peter," DSH, Black, Berkeley


Peter is an indoor/outdoor three year old female, all black DSH. She is wearing a collar with ID tags and a bell and she is microchipped. 

Peter and her person recently moved into this house where another cat and dog already lived. She was kept inside for a week and then was allowed to be in the small back yard with supervision. The next day she was allowed into the backyard and her person went into the house to answer a phone call. When she came back out, Peter was gone. There were no sightings of Peter after she went missing. 

Peter was missing for three weeks when I came out. 

After checking the entire surrounding area, we found a track that led away from the house. The timeframe is unknown how long it was before Peter left the neighborhood and took that route. It could have been minutes, hours or days. The track continued for quite a distance through town, all the way to distant Railroad tracks near Aquatic Park. AT this point, I decided to bring out the idea that Peter may have been picked up and carried away by somebody since the track appeared to be quite human and direct. They did confirm that their neighborhood is quite popular with the "transient" or "opportunistic" crowd, as a lot of Berkeley is well known for. 

The track went along walking trails and all the way into Emeryville. Along the way, the track was apparent it was a human carrying Peter as the track went to more and more places that a human would go and not where a lost cat would go. 

They stopped the search at the four hour mark and said they would continue to look for Peter.
