Have you seen my beloved cat?

Never thought I'd have to make one of these for my beloved Tommy. Tommy is a very playful indoor/outdoor cat with a lot of personality. Very fast runner,very strong. Friendly. Won't generally go up to strangers. Has a baby-ish meow and personality and is quite "chatty" often chortling. He's a determined little guy,a little less then a year and a half old,and full of energy but also loves his naps and ear and chin rubs.

    Hello,
    I can't be sure but we have seen a small grey stripped cat two days in a row in the area of Keeler and 61st street. I seen kitty crossing street just this morning. I know its further out from your area. I will certainty watch out for this cat and attempt to get a picture and better look.

  • Hmm,interesting. I can't imagine him going that far,but it's worth checking out. Please do get a picture if you can. He's long and lanky in build and has a super fast,kind of awkward(adorable) run. Thank you so much. I will check the area asap.
