A newcomer to Williams Lake is appealing to the public to help find her lost cat Tigger.
Tigger is nine years old with black fur and a white chest and white paws.
“I have to get him home for my little boy,” the cat’s owner Dale Sherstobitoff said.
Two weeks ago she moved to Williams Lake from Kamloops for a job at Gibraltar Mines and was living in a travel trailer until she could find a place to move into.
Her little boy will be joining her at the end of the school year, and doesn’t even know the cat has gone missing, she said.
Tigger was last seen at Gibbon Street and Fourth Avenue, close to where Sherstobitoff lives.
And ever since he went missing, Sherstobitoff has been getting up at 4:30 a.m. to look for him before she leaves for work and then look for him again at night when she gets back home.
“We haven’t had any calls but someone said on Facebook they may have seen him on Boundary Street,” her adult son Justin Sellars said.
Sherstobitoff and Sellars are offering a $500 reward for the return of the cat.
They can be reached at 250-682-9432. Sellars also works at Gibraltar and can be reached at 250-305-4888 or e-mail JJSellars@Live.com.
