Once again I must report that some of My feline brothers and sisters have gone missing. As always, I apologize for the sadness this reality brings, but it cannot be ignored. The only way to be sure your kitty is safe is to have a safe confinement plan. Whenever a kitty is allowed to roam free, that kitty’s life is at risk. These posters are a reminder of the importance of giving your kitty well-defined, safe boundaries.
First, we have Mikie. This beautiful, laid back tuxedo boy went missing in September.
Next, we have Oscar, an 8 year old Maine Coon kitty that has been missing since August. The lost poster notes that he is “indoor/outdoor”, which means he is, or was, a Limbo kitty.
Another tuxedo kitty, Max, has also gone missing. He has not been seen since August 5.
Next we have Jezzy, a beautiful tabby girl. She is a small kitty with a chipped tooth.
Jupiter is also missing. He is another of My fellow tabbies. His guardians are very distraught.
The last poster is the hardest one of all. It is for a cat that was found, but under the worst possible circumstances. It is a grim reminder of what is ultimately at stake when guardians do not have safe confinement plans for their kitties.
I purr for all of these kitties and the uncounted legion of others that go missing every day. I know these are hard to see, but I hope that seeing them will convince those who are on the fence to bring their kitties in from Limbo and keep them safe. We really are counting on our Guardians to define our boundaries. We can thrive within safe confines as long as we are given plenty of enrichment and lots of love. Please, keep us safe, and encourage others to do the same with their kitties.
