Lost Birman

Dawn from Blenheim

My name is Sophie and I cant find my way home to Rogers St.
I am a 3 yr old Birman and am wearing a blue collar with a bell. I am micro chipped.
I don't like strangers and I'm very softly spoken, so you probably wont hear my cries for help.
If you see me or know where I am contact Dawn.

"Every member of this family who serves in the shop are very friendly, helpful and always smiling.
