Missing Cat in MontclairUpdate: Zema was found!

A reader writes in:

Missing cat, beloved of course. Her name is Zema. She wears a collar and is microchipped. Slipped out the door (most likely) this morning on Gordonhurst Ave., dead-end with Brookdale Park. She’s an indoor cat so is probably a little scared, but is very friendly and will come to a whistle or a treat. Please help! Call Tracey  973-655-1120

She/he has no collar or tags, but obviously seems to be someone’s current or lost pet, and will sit outside our front and back door meowing for attention and attempting to run inside when the door is opened.
