This beautiful cat is Tippy, he is my friend's cat and he usually lives happily near Nakajima Park.
But last Sunday morning (maybe) he escaped from his home and has not been seen since. My friend just came out of a long stay in hospital, so she only had 72 hours of happiness with her cat...and now she has so much stress.
Many of her friends have been helping to look for Tippy - we have put up flyers and posters around the neighborhood, and we have looked in many places: parking areas, the park, the shrine grounds, garages....
We have contacted animal clinics, Sapporo city cleaning department and some animal shelters. No news :-(
Two people said they saw a cat like this running into a car near the Tokou Store between Gyokeidori and Ishiyamadori...and then an old man pick up the cat and put it in his bicycle basket.
Tippy is 10 years old and does not run or jump so well. He is an indoor cat - so the big outside world must be scary for him.
If you have ANY information about this cat - please call Imagine, or my cell phone - day or night.
