Day One:

Day Two:

https://strava.app.link/4o4kKcZ2mgb




Day One:
Jessy is a two year old spayed female grey and white tabby. She is an indoor outdoor friendly cat. She was last photographed by a camera on the driveway of the home at 6 PM on a Monday. She never came home that night. 

She is microchipped, but not wearing a collar. 

An extensive search of the neighborhood for several days she has lived in her whole life found nothing. There were no sightings and she hadn't been seen in any of her regular visiting spots nearby. 

The search with Asia showed that Jessy had been picked up and carried away probably by a transient/homeless person. Eventually Jessy got away from them and took off. The track showed her wandering around the edge of the water and bay and inlets of Alameda. 

The search was stopped at the four hour mark and her person said she would continue to look for Jessy.

The following day Jessy's person contacted Marta Williams, an animal communicator, and Marta confirmed the track we found. She talked to Jessy and said that her person was trying to find her and gave her instructions to try to follow her track backwards to her home. 

Day Two:
No new sightings. Started from where we left off the first day and continued to track within Alameda. At one point the track went along the rocky beach and then came back up and over a wall. Asia was a trooper allowing us to lift her up and over the 5 foot wall!

"Gloria," Dachshund, Sausalito




Gloria is a 20 pound Dachshund and went missing on Monday, April 12, at around noon. Her person was in their yard doing yard work and Gloria was sitting nearby in the sun. When she looked up Gloria was not in her previous spot. She started looking for Gloria, assuming she had gone under the deck, which is what she has done in the past. 

Despite visits from the local fire department and another contractor with a camera on stick, Gloria was not found under the deck. Several holes were cut in the wood to find her, but still she was not found. 

I was called the next day on Tuesday and asked if any search had been done outside the house and I was told no since they believed her to be in the yard. Animal control had not been contacted and no flyers were up. Gloria was microchipped and wearing a collar with ID tags. I suggested they call animal control and the microchip company immediately to report her missing. 

Two days later we arrived, and I brought Tacoma and Asia. Tacoma would do the search under the deck and in the yard and Asia would pick up if nothing was found in the yard. 

Despite over two hours in the yard and cutting new holes and having Tacoma search the entire yard and under the deck, we didn't find any evidence that Gloria was in the yard. I brought Asia out, had her check the area surrounding the house and she found a track leading away from the house and down the hill toward the marina. Gloria's person did confirm she had not walked Gloria in that area for as long as she can remember. She always drives Gloria in a car anywhere and does not walk in the neighborhood. 

After another two hours of tracking we found the track went down the hill and through some neighborhoods, towards a popular local market and then back up and around to a previous location. 

The search was stopped at the four hour mark. They said they would continue to search for Gloria outside the house and surrounding neighborhoods.

"NT Sweetie" Tortoise shell Manx, Angwin

 




NT was being fostered while her person was in hospice. She is 14 years old indoor only and not wearing any ID. 

She got out of a window that was slightly open for the other cats in the house. There were no sightings until the morning we arrived, four days after she went missing. NT was spotted on a wildlife camera several blocks away and that person remembered seeing a flyer on her road. NTs person confirmed it was her when the video was sent her. 

When I arrived we drove to the home where the camera was. I showed Asia the scent and showed her the area. We also talked to a neighbor and found she had seen NT also that night on her porch, even petting her but had not seen the flyer and didnt know she was lost. Asia picked up the track leading away from the home. We followed the track for four and a half miles around and around the area, crossing and recrossing the track.

At 4 hours the search was stopped and she said she would keep looking. Down the road about a quarter mile was the local fire station.

Two days later I received a call from NTs person that she had been found at the fire station, alive and well!!!

Great job, everyone!!

"Irini" Steppe Tortoise, San Francisco

 



Irini is a 40 year old Steppe Tortoise originally from Russia. Her people have had her for 23 years. They said that Irini had been showing signs of looking for a place to hibernate for the winter. While left alone in her outdoor yard enclosure, Irini managed to push aside a heavy concrete block and wander up a steep dirt hillside in the yard and get through holes in the fence into the neighbor's yard. 

I brought Tacoma in to have him search the area since the vegetation was very thick and on a steep hillside in the Diamond Heights district. Irini's person kept their yard very well maintained and landscaped, but their neighbors did not and the trees and bushes were very overgrown and fences were either broken or missing on all sides. Very easy for a determined tortoise to get where she wants to go. 

What we found was that her scent did not leave the areas of the neighbor's yard to the right of their house. This house has extensive overgrown landscaping, untouched for years and even Tacoma at his tiny size, had problems getting through some of the sections. Plus the houses were built on very steep hillsides, making it more difficult to climb them, even in well maintained landscaping. 

Tacoma indicated that her scent had not left the neighbor's yard, which means two things: that Irini found her way to the yard and is hibernating, exactly what her person was afraid of, digging way below the surface of the earth. The second thing that could have happened, and we did talk about it  while on the search, was that Irini had become deceased while in the yard, and her remains carried away or decomposed and buried. This was a strong possibility with the extensive raccoon population in the area. Despite us being there in the late morning, we saw numerous raccoons awake and hanging out in the local trees. Irini's  person did confirm she had seen the raccoons in the neighbor's yard.
