My little cat went outside on the evening of August 31st from Arthur Street in Blenheim and hasn't come home since. I'm desperate to have her back and I'd really appreciate it if you could keep an eye out for her. Her name is Dumpling and she's a tabby. Her tail goes all the way over her back when it's up, she's a bit timid and not very bright, but she's my heart.
Dumpling is 18 months old now, she's microchipped and de-sexed. She has a very round sounding meow. She's a kind of yellow possum-coloured tabby cat with spots on her belly. If you've been feeding a cat that sounds like this, who's been around for the last few weeks, I'd really, really appreciate it if you could get in touch, or catch her and take her to a vet or the SPCA.
If you've had a tabby cat pass away on your property in the central Blenheim area I'd really like to be able to put her body to rest in the garden that she loves so much.
Please help me find her. Thank you.
