It may be absurd but it’s worth a try

Probably 90% of my readers are from the international community, which makes this a rather desperate attempt.  However, based on the “six degrees of separation” principle, I am hoping that this truly phenomenal blogging community could do me the ultimate favour of passing this information to anyone they know.

Jangles - my missing beautiful girl

Jangles – my missing beautiful girl

My dear, previously abused and, therefore, terribly frightened cat, Jangles, somehow managed to escape from her run at the cattery / boarding facility in which she was staying whilst I was away.  Being the scared cat that she is, it is highly unlikely that she will approach a stranger.  However, I am putting out her photograph here, in the hope that someone, somewhere, knows a person who might have seen her scurrying under bushes.

Please help me find Jangles.

Please help me find Jangles.

Jangles was at a facility in Bryanston, Johannesburg, South Africa.  I have been in the area every day, calling for her.  She will be scared and hungry and I am desperate to find her.

Please could everyone pass this information to anyone they can think of and, if I am lucky enough that someone knows her whereabouts, they can contact me on or +2784-244-2208

Jangles thanks you for any help you can give

I wish this could have been a fun, light-hearted “Happy New Year” post but I fear those will have to wait until I find my baby girl.

Jangles would like to find her bed again.

I thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.

  1. Oh, I do hope you find Jangles! I know how worried you must be.

  2. Visiting from Le Clown to let you know I’ve shared this on FB & Twitter. Hope you find her, she’s beautiful.

    • Thank you so very, very much. I truly appreciate all the support. I cannot even begin to express my thanks properly. One never knows who will read what, where.

      • You’re welcome. I’m not really one to keep pets, yet I seem to continually be surrounded by felines that have been rescued at one point or another by other family members and wind up being the one who cares for their basic needs and such. Cats and four year olds don’t mix well and I wish there was someone who could take in the one cat too big, too old, and too gentle to defend himself from my daughter and allow him to roam the outdoors he so desperately needs to. He and I have a bit of an uneasy truce going right now. The other two ladies are savvy and standoffish enough to remain hidden and out of reach. *sigh*

      • Good for you for taking them in and caring for them, even if the environment is not ideal. Maybe you should email me the details of the older cat, with pictures and area etc. I have readers all over the place and one never knows, maybe if a put out a post, someone out there would look at taking him in. Always worth a try and I’m always happy to help in any way that I can.

      • I will work on that. In the meantime my post today talks about my developing gratitude for cat poop, Oy.

  3. If Jangles shows up here in San Diego, Zoey the Cool Cat and I will let you know. Meanwhile, here’s hoping that Jangles is okay and will show up soon.

  4. I just tweeted about it so let’s hope we can make this happen! Do you have a Twitter handle? I just included the link to this post.

    • Thank you so very, very, very much. I cannot believe how blessed I am to have people out there willing to do such things for me. I have never been on Twitter (obviously, I’m not a twit 😀 ) but maybe I should think about doing so. Seems lots of others are on there. One day…….

  5. Our prayers are with you…be encouraged!
