Hyacinth, an orange-haired, 10-pound local cat, has gone missing. Though the cat(pictured) regularly leaves her Petworth home for up to twenty minutes at a time, she generally returns when called. The cat, who was last seen on the 1300 block of Shepherd St. NW, has now been missing for 24 hours.
Owners Lisa and Cameron became worried on Monday evening after repeated calls to the cat went unanswered.
According to Lisa and Cameron, Hyacinth “is very friendly with a soft meow.” A former cat-sitter describes Hyacinth as “exceptionally friendly and cute.” The cats owners are joined by fellow live-in cat Mr. Trouble in offering a “generous reward” for Hyacinth’s return.
“She may be in your garage or shed by accident,” write the owners. “Can you please help us by checking?”
Those with information about her whereabouts are directed to contact Lisa and Cameron at (202) 321-0249 or (202) 390-1513.
UPDATE: Whew. Hyacinth was found, holed up in a new neighbor’s house, at 7 p.m. this evening.
