Charlie the Missing Cat

10/18/2007 Meow!:

Melissa, a distraught cat owner is wondering if you’ve seen “Charlie”.

She lives up on Ogden Ave. in Jersey City Heights (many call that “Hoboken Heights” due to the close proximity to town, plus the Light Rail elevator on 9th st.)

Anyway, she says:
“I lost my cat on Ogden Ave in Jersey City and I was wondering if you could put his picture on your website. I am so devastated because my roommate left the door open and he is gone! Please help. The cat was lost on ogden ave between bowers and south street, which is around 5th street in Hoboken. I walked for 2 hours with posters in Jersey City and I met 3 people who said they saw the cat on Bowers between New York Ave and Webster.

One thing about the cat that stands out is his eyes. He has amazingly beautiful blue/gray eyes. They are gorgeous. His medium size, neutered, very friendly but very very scared. He will look sad. His eyes are very expressive. Hloves tuna fish! If anyone sees him, tell them to please call me at 201 220 7396.”

Thanks so much!
Melissa

That’s just mean! To some, losing a pet is like losing a child.

The one in Hoboken is mostly white with a couple of round patches of orange (I think shoulders are white though). But it would hurt if the Melissa went down there to check for sure if it is or not Charlie. I’ve been wondering about the white/orange cat on 7th and Garden. For the past two weeks, it looks desperate for TLC. I’ve walked by the cat and it meows and follows me for a block meowing. It’s belly looks extremely hollow as well. Even if this isn’t Charlie, does anyone know if this cat needs help?[/quote] Midnight, I believe the cat you speak about is now in custody at Cornerstone Pets. He has been to the vet and besides some battle scars, some missing teeth he has unfortuanately contracted FIV, Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, or Feline Aids. As many as 24% of cats have FIV, and it is more common in male street cats and Ralphie fits right into that category. No threat to people at all and Ralphie can live a long healthy life but will need to be placed with another cat with FIV or be in a single cat household. FIV, is much like AIDS in people, it is a virus that weekens the immunce system and a cat, like a person, normally sucumbs to a disease it… Read more »

[quote comment=”48976″]I have 2 cats – I am of the belief that if they leave my apartment that I should wish them good luck and hope that they write often.

My wife on the other hand makes me run around our building like a retard on crack trying to find the fat sloths.

If he ran away, maybe he is seeking a better life.[/quote]

I knew there had to be a sensible person in that household. :mrgreen:
