Missing Cat in Montclair

UPDATE: Pippi has been found.

A reader writes in about her cat who has gone missing:

Pippi has been missing since August 19th. She was last seen near Union St. and Orange Rd. I don’t think she has traveled far because she is currently injured. Her right hind leg is wounded and she cannot walk on it. Pippi is a very sweet cat but due to her injury she is very fragile and scared right now. She enjoys lounging in the shade and sleeping under bushes, if you live around Union Street and Orange Road please help and check your back yard for Pippi. She usually meows when you say her name.. She doesn’t have a collar. Please help and call Gabby with any information 973-960-7136.

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.
