If you've ever had a pet escape on your watch you are familiar with the horrendous feeling that accompanies it. It is like a pit in your stomach combined with a heaviness on your heart. You can't eat, sleep, function, until you find your fur baby safe and sound.

I'll never forget when my cat Seymour ran out of our screen door when we weren't looking. He was gone for almost a week and to this day I have never seen my dad so upset. Low and behold, a few streets over, we found him taking shelter under our neighbors deck. The woman who lived there said he had been there for a while and was keeping dry from the rain. We were annoyed she didn't call the authorities and report it so we could have been reunited sooner. But at the end of the day we were just so happy to have our sweet boy home.

Just as we were worried sick about Seymour, I'm sure whoever lost this little dude is completely beside themselves looking for him! Just look at this sweet face:

According to the Rye NH Police Department Facebook page, this little dude was found around Central at Locke with a green collar on but no tags. I can only assume he/she is not microchipped or else the Police Department would have just contacted the owner directly instead of taking to social media.

The Rye Police Department has asked if you have any information to please call them at 603-964-5522.
