R10 000 re­ward for miss­ing cat

Post - - Front Page - CHANELLE LUTCHMAN

A DIS­TRAUGHT Phoenix fam­ily has of­fered a re­ward of R10 000, a R500 tat­too voucher and five free car washes to the per­son who helps lo­cate their miss­ing cat, pic­tured.

Sharon Isaac told POST her oneeyed gin­ger tabby cat, called King, had been miss­ing since the be­gin­ning of Septem­ber.

Her daugh­ter Le­anda is of­fer­ing her first salary as a re­ward for the cat’s safe re­turn. The mother said. “I have four other cats and two dogs. It was feed­ing time and King wasn’t around. I looked high and low and we re­alised he was gone,” she said.

“We are not sure how he got out (of the home) be­cause he is a house cat. And he would al­ways be around the other an­i­mals that we have.

“We as­sume he got through the bath­room win­dow.”

She added: “My 22-year-old daugh­ter cries her­self to sleep ev­ery night and even my hus­band Justin some­times goes to work late be­cause he will help us search for King.”

Isaac told POST that King had been in the fam­ily for the past eight months since she res­cued him.

“I found him in Fe­bru­ary on the road side cry­ing, he was very sickly and we rushed him to the vet. He had some­thing called snuf­fles, which is a res­pi­ra­tory prob­lem and be­cause of that the vet had to re­move his left eye.”

King is light gin­ger in colour, has one eye and a patch of white fur on his chest.
