A female orange tabby cat named Neko has been lost since Monday, February 11. The family has gotten a few good tips and even rescued another female orange tabby... but they are still hunting for Neko. They are aware of a few orange cats living on both Garland and Glenside matching her description and they thank all of you who've e-mailed or called in tips so far.
They are assuming that something spooked her to run far enough away that she's having trouble finding her way back home. When she gets afraid, she tends to shut down and hide. The family has walked over 90 miles around the neighborhood in the last week looking, and they are not giving up.
The family asks that you:
Check your garages, sheds, under your deck - places a cat might hole up from the cold.
Look around your yards - especially if you have an active bird feeder. She's an insatiable birder, which caused the family to take down their bird feeder. Neko thought it meant, "Bird, Feed Her."
Keep an eye around Long Branch Creek; they had a sighting there too.
Keep her description in mind: she's a medium-hair orange tabby. Had a pink collar with pink heart tag on it. Orange eyes. Very fluffy tail - this tends to distinguish her a bit from your average tabby. She will most likely not come when called, and is skittish around strangers.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. If you see Neko, please call the family any time, day or night, as they are getting desperate:
