“$1,000 Reward  Offered for Return of Lily”

image copy

Monday, January 26th I found a red break away collar on the walk way of my residence.  I phoned the number on the tag to learn the kitty had been missing since Sunday. The owners really miss Lily and are hopeful someone took her in because she had no collar.

If you have seen Lily please contact me and I will put you in touch with her owners. She lives on Broad Beach and her collar was found across the highway in the 31200 block of PCH near the corner of Lunita.  She may be on Bailard  or Lunita roads or back closer to home on Broad Beach.


Lily’s family is heart broken and would be grateful for her return.
