Dad found Chester this AM. As I was hoping, the best possible case scenario panned out. He was stuck in a nwighbor’s garage. As I mentioned, Chester is quite vocal about being kept inside! Dad apparently heard Chester this AM and awoke the neighbor who opened the door. Chester ran straight home for dinner AND breakfast. He’s also not used to the idea of skipping meals. Or snacks. Or treats. Or any reason at all to get a bite.
Thanks! We are so happy to have him home!
On behalf of Ann, Tony and.Chester (aka Tank) Lanata @ 120 Overbrook
My parents live at 120 Overbrook Ravine (Ann and Tony Lanata). Tonight they were unable to find their cat. Chester (aka Tank) usually comes in around 6 or 7pm nightly. They are aware of the coyote situation and make sure Chester comes in every night before dark. They would like for him to be an indoor cat, but it would be a vast understatement to say he is vocal about wanting out, so the compromise for now is he goes out during daylight hours and stays in at night. Until tonight, when we called and called and walked the neighborhood looking for him with no luck. He was last seen at 120 Overbrook around 3pm today (Saturday). We are extremely worried about him and want him home safe ASAP. Can you please post the info to the list so everyone can be on the lookout for him? We’d appreciate the help! I’ve also attached pictures of Chester if you can pass them along as well.
We’re hoping since Saturday was a nice day, maybe he wandered into someone’s garage or shed while they were working in their yard and he got locked in by accident. Please, please, please, ask people to look in their sheds or garages for Chester.
Here is his info:
Chester (aka Tank) is a large (approximately 15 pounds) male cat. He’s not so much fat as he is big. His paws are very large. He is smokey grey in color with a thick coat and sometimes his eyes can appear to be crosseyed. He is extremely friendly and playful and curious. He is approximately 3 to 4 years of age. He is neutered and has been declawed in the front (he does have rear claws). He should be wearing a red collar with a red metal heart shaped tag that has both his names (Chester and Tank) and my dad’s cell phone number on it. Anyone with info or who may find him can also call me on my cell anytime of the day or night (literally, I’m that concerned) at 614-323-7422. This cat means the world to all of us!!!
