Subject: Re: Help to find our lost cat Hi Nanci
oldest daughter come across your website, she
said that she has also sent you and e-mail but
could not attach any pictures, I would very much
appreciate any help you could give. We here are
also praying that our very much loved cat Jacob
returns home safely.
is an indoor/outdoor cat, he weighs 17 pounds,
he is a Maine coon mix, grey long haired tabby
colour. Jacob is 8 year old male (neutered). We
also took in a stray a couple of years ago. Jacob
has been fine with him being around. Jacob never
wonders far from the property and doesn't go anywhere
near the road, he is afraid of the traffic.
We have walked in the back fields for hours calling
his name and we have put up posters.
you help us pray for his safe return?
you see where he might be, to point us in the
right direction to finding him.
Janine & family
and thank you for writing! Jacob reminds me of
our Cat, choo choo, he is so beautiful. The first
thing I felt and saw was an area of brush back
and to the slight right of your house. So if you
were to stand in back of your house (or side of
house where there is nature or brush) and walk
straight and slightly to the right..I was hearing
a small amount of water trickeling..smelling wetness
and also..some sort of smell that seemed unusual..by
unusual I mean, perhaps like excessive mold or
water runoff..just some kind of unusual smell
..as if there is a plant or dump or something
down wind that has a smell that works its way
to the area or an old bag of garbage near him..I
am sorry to use those words! I kept seeing a stump
of a tree that an animal could fit into or climb
under..and low brush where it felt his body is
low to the ground and he may be stuck under this
prickly low brush. There have been so many earth
changes that I feel somehow are affecting animals
everywhere! Sooo many people long time animals
are dissapearing for days or displaying unusual
behavior..is the hair on his tail and back long
because it feel he may be stuck on his back/tail
area. I feel slight irritation in the middle of
my back and feel this may be due to something
scraping on his back. He may be a little dehydrated
and not meowing loudly. I will pray for you and
your baby..I do feel he is within a half a mile..Please
let me know. For some reason I am being shown
an older lady in a house within walking range
that may end up seeing or hearing him..is there
an older lady who lives on a corner house.I saw
a cat with orange on it walk near Jacob..could
there be another cat that may lead you to him
if you follow..
you for your help, as soon as i read your e-mail
we rushed out to once again look, unfortunately
we still have not found him. Is there anything
else around him you might see, any distinctive
buildings? We also have a black short hair stray
cat that i took in a couple of years ago, yesterday
we saw him running with an orange cat, but didn't
pay much attention to them, other then my youngest
daughter saying "look joey has a girlfriend".
but i didn't see them. At the front of our house
is the road, across the road and to the right
is an old barn, there is a stream running through
there, in the summer we did get that lovely manure
smell. The barn is now no longer in use. I know
our stray cat does go over there, I don't know
where the orange cat came from we have never seen
that one before, but Jacob is afraid of the road.
Can you see or sense anything else?
We are so worried about him.
Janine & family
you check the area near the barn and water? even
though he is afraid of the road perhaps he followed
the orange cat over there at one time then was
afraid of coming back..I saw an orange cat..so
it makes me wonder..can you check over there?
Like I said unusual things are happening with
animals lately..and if this orange cat sudddenly
showed up and I was shown him, perhaps he is a
key in this!
would really like to thank you, I sent my other
half across the road with a flash light 15 minutes
before he left for work as he works midnights,
as even myself something was telling me to check
across the road, my head was telling me to check
and my heart was telling me he wouldn't have crossed
the road. Anyway long story made short, he came
walking back with Jacob in his arms. I can't even
express how much i appreciate all your help. Thank
you so very much.
Janine, John, Chelsie & Katlyne
Janine and Family. We are so happy Jacob is home!
We are animal lovers and know they are a part
of the family. I wanted to ask your permission
to use jacobs picture and story on my webpage.
If not I understand, yet, I like to ask permission
first. It would be awsome to share the celebration!
Is Jacob ok?
wanted to let you know he was across the road
at the old abandoned barn, he is great, no cuts
or anything. I
have attached a picture of him, last night when
we were going to bed.
Jacob's first night home after being lost for
3 days, look at him
all snuggled into the pillow safe and sound.
you once again for all your help, and please go
ahead and use the pictures and story for your
You went out of your way to help us. So Thank
you once again.
John, Chelsie & Katlyne
