Update: Another Baristanet lost pet story with a happy ending. “Ginger” has been reunited with her family!
A reader writes:
We discovered a missing cat (Saturday, June 26th at about 10am) on Highland Avenue in Upper Montclair. The cat looks like she/he belongs to someone because the fur is trimmed like a little lion. The kitty is friendly but really hungry, and may have been missing a few days. I’m sure the cat must belong to someone.

This cat has appeared around Highfield Road and Broad St. (across from I Hop). The cat is very friendly, likes to roll on its back, but runs away if you try to pick it up. The cat is dark steel grey and about 1 yr old. Please call 862-202-6914 for more information.

When brought outside, she shows an entirely different side to her personality. Continue Reading

A woman from North Mountain Avenue in Montclair writes that her cat, Nicholas, never came home on July 4th and she has not been able to find him since. He may have gotten trapped in a garage because it rained on the 4th or may have been frightened by fireworks. He is a male gray tabby with a little white under his chin and on his paws. He weighs 14 pounds. If you’ve seen Nicholas please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
