A reader from Glen Ridge writes:

Our family pet, Junior, still hasn’t come home. He was last seen on Hawthorne Avenue and Adams Place in Glen Ridge.
Junior is a 9-year-old, male, black and white tuxedo cat with a reflective red and white collar that has a breakaway safety release that may have come off. He is an outdoor cat and very friendly with people but he’s normally home every few hours to check in/eat and has not come home since we last let him out early Monday evening, June 7. There is a cash reward for his safe return.

UPDATE: “We JUST found him! I went around to the neighbor’s garages calling his name and sure enough heard a meow from inside one of them. He’d been stuck inside since Monday early evening when the owner of the garage went to mow her lawn. We so appreciate your willingness to help.”

  1. Our GR cat, Twinkie is a tuxedo and could be Junior’s twin sister. She always gets stuck in our neighbor’s basements or garages hunting mice.

  2. I’m so glad Junior came home safe and sound but outdoor cats are in constant danger from cars, animals and other threats to their health and well-being. Indoor cats generally live from 12-18 years of age. Many may live to be in their early 20s. The oldest reported cat was 28 years old at the time of death.
    Outdoor cats generally live to be around four to five years of age. Their deaths are typically due to traumas such as being hit by a car or dog attacks. Outdoor cats are also more susceptible to several deadly viruses that are spread by fighting or prolonged intimate contact with an infected cat.
