UPDATED MAY 2. The photo is the brother of the missing cat. Missing cat has a white nose instead of a gray nose.
A family who felt the devastation of the Arkansas tornadoes April 27 are now searching for their cat. This Facebook thread tells the story.
Jim Murphy is missing his grey and white tom cat. The kitty has large grey spots on a white background, and went missing in the River Plantation area of Mayflower, which was one of the hardest hit areas.
If you see this kitty, please call 960-7093 if found, or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Facebook group page is assisting, with information on rescue groups, where to have pets scanned or treated and other up to date information. Residents who find an animal are asked to hold onto it until it's owner is located.
If the thread in the first paragraph doesn't take you to the lost or found pet, please check the albums on the group page.
Please leave a phone number where you can be reached. Don't depend on people being able to reach you on Facebook.
Also remember to be very careful who you release a "found" pet to. Sadly, in other disasters, people have taken advantage of the situation and taken custody of pets that did not belong to them.
People who have lost everything don't need to deal with nefarious folks also.. These disasters bring out people who scam, so please beware.
Examiner articles are unpublished after pets are reunited with family. This simplifies keeping up with the many pets still needing help finding their family.
