Maine Coon-type cat lost in Pinehurst Road, Springettsbury Township, area

tiajhe2 Received this note from a reader who lost a cat in the Pinehurst Road, Springettsbury Township (York, PA) area. The cat looks like a Maine Coon cat, with a lion cut. If you think you’ve seen this cat, call 717-542-7916 or email rugby1996@icloud.com.

Tiajhe is a rescue from Egypt. She came to me an emotional and physical mess. She is healthy now and very social. She resembles a Maine Coon. She has a lion cut. She is wearing a green collar with a flower on it. She is a cat that was raised outside. She comes in and out. She loves the roof; just like a pyramid! She has a neighborhood fan club. People come to the yard and call her name. She comes to greet them and get treats. She hasn’t been seen since 7/18/2015. I actively T-N-R and completely understand the risks with inside/outside cats.

Gray cat found near York College, is he yours?

A solid gray cat was found July 16 off Grantley Road, in the York College area. He is already neutered and his ear has been tipped. Finder said he is very friendly, super sweet; a bit scared but talks a lot and wants attention.

She is hoping to find this cat’s person, but if not, she wants to find him a home. It’s not safe for cats in her neighborhood because some neighbors don’t like cats. She is trying to keep him safe until his person is found or he gets a home, but she already has cats and cannot bring him inside.

If this might be your cat, or if you’d like to adopt him, call 717-854-8663 or email zumbrun@hotmail.com.

Keep your pets safe this Fourth of July

lost-minpin While other people might be looking forward to watching the fireworks displays that are a big part of celebrating Independence, I must admit it fills me with dread. It’s not that I’m frightened by the noise, although I’m not crazy about it. I dread this holiday because in the days leading up to and after July 4, lost pet notices are on the rise. Shelters report a marked increase in pet intakes around this holiday, and some kill shelters “clean house” in the days leading up the holiday, to make room for the increase in lost pets. You know what that means, right?

People sometimes forget that animals’ hearing is much more acute than human hearing, so the noise is magnified for pets. Add to that the fact that the animals don’t understand that this is just for fun — they most likely think things are blowing up, or a huge thunderstorm is striking the area, or some type of noisy monster is on the loose.
