Cool cat: Cedric is a light chocolate Burmese who answers to his name. If you have seen Cedric please phone Claire Callister on 021 045 6588 or email clairecallister@ hotmail.com It began with a case of mistaken identity and now Claire Callister s family cat Cedric is missing. On January 20 Cedric, a nine- year-old chocolate Burmese, was accidentally given to another cat owner who had gone to collect her chocolate Burmese from a North Shore cattery. As soon as Cedric was let out of the cage at the woman s Murrays Bay home he ran off and hasn t been seen since. Mrs Callister and her family returned from their summer holi- day to the devastating news that their beloved cat Cedric had been missing for six days. Our gut reaction was to get out there and look for him but after hours and hours of searching we realise we ve got to ask for help, she says. There have been nights when the kids have been out until five in the morning looking for him and calling his name. I don t think anyone in Browns Bay would ve got any sleep last night. The Coatesville family dropped Cedric at the cattery on January 13 as they set off on a two week adven- ture in Vietnam. Mrs Callister says they had every faith in the cattery owner who had cared for Cedric on prev- ious occasions. She s had a very successful cat- tery for years but there were new staff and one mistake after another was made, she says. The woman who was mistakenly given Cedric to take home remarked that her cat seemed to have lost a lot of weight, says Mrs Callister, but still left with the wrong cat. In their quest to find Cedric the family have done a letterbox drop of 1500 flyers asking for any clues on his whereabouts and have taken well-worn pieces of clothing around the neighbourhood to leave a scent trail. The last sighting of Cedric was in Saddleback Rise, Murrays Bay a few days after he went missing. Mrs Callister says the family don t hold any ill will towards the cattery staff or the other cat owner but just want our boy home . She describes him as a slim light chocolate Burmese who answers to his name.
