Millet pet owner distraught over missing cat

Millet cat named ‘Panda’ may have been mistaken as stray

Not all cats found wandering the neighborhoods of Millet are lost strays and one concerned Millet resident would like to remind people of the damage that can be caused from permanently taking in wandering animals.

The Millet resident, who has asked to remain anonymous, is still looking for his one-and-a-half-year-old, black and white, domestic short haired cat named Panda, who went missing just over 100 days ago.

The owner alleges the animal, which is an outdoor/indoor cat, may have been taken into a new home using food baiting techniques.

Although the dangers of wild animals attacking cats has been raised as a reason for the disappearance, this owner now fears for his remaining cat. “I’m concerned I have one more who will be stolen from me.”

In order to save themselves and others the heartache of being the victim of more missing pets, the resident would like to ask people not to feed other people’s animals or welcome them indoors because it could confuse them. “It’s really wrong. It’s not the right way to get a pet.”

“Generally, people in Millet are very nice. I’m not blaming Millet people.”

Before Panda went missing he started becoming uncharacteristically timid about coming indoors, says his owner.

“I don’t think there’s any love when you steal an animal.”

“Should I keep them incarceration? I don’t think that would work.”
