Haddonfield family searching for lost cat

Tuxedo cat Bertie went missing on July 8 near Farwood Road and Cedar Avenue.

A Haddonfield family is looking for its 9-year-old tuxedo cat that ran out an open door on July 8 and was last seen on Cedar Avenue near Farwood Road.

The black-and-white tuxedo cat, named Bertie, is an indoor neutered cat. He has a mini white mustache and a black spot on his white belly. His left back leg is mostly white. His right back leg is mostly black, but it has a white ring around it. He weighed 15.5 lbs at the time of his disappearance. He is microchipped, but he is very shy and skittish, so please do not chase him. 

Please check yards, decks, sheds and garages for Bertie. He might be hiding during the day and traveling at night. He might be in Pennypacker Park or in the Tatem School area, but he may have traveled farther out. Someone may be feeding Bertie and not realize he is lost.

If you see a cat that resembles Bertie, please snap a picture (if possible) and text/call Angela and Tom Beatty at (856) 524-0334. Animal shelters are being checked all the time, missing posters are up and a humane trap is set at home in case he decides to return. Pet detectives have been consulting with the family and have determined that Bertie is still alive and is nearby.  A stray cat on Cedar Avenue may be preventing him from returning home.

The cat’s owners are offering a reward for Bertie’s safe return, no questions asked.
