Our cat is gone.

On November 10, 2008, our cat Bender disappeared from the backyard of his home on Lanie Court, in the Morgan Greens neighborhood of Roseville, California (near the intersection of PFE and Cook Riolo Roads). He was wearing a collar with two ID tags, and was microchipped. Please keep an eye out for our big boy - we miss him! I'm offering a CASH REWARD for his safe return.

Days Missing:

. . . and he threatened to bury the body.

Some folks have asked for more info on the "deaf and disabled police officer/doctor" who "arrested those gangsters who stole (Bender)" and who offered to return him to me for a fee. I corresponded with him for a couple of days to see what his game was, and here's the upshot - he demanded $1,900.00 from me in return for a promise that he would have Bender shipped to me from an undisclosed location. He couldn't provide any info about Bender that wasn't already in the ad, and refused to send me a picture of him when asked (he couldn't take a picture of Bender because he was "deaf," or something to that effect). He finally threatened to kill Bender and bury the body where I would never find it. Pleasant fellow, huh? A little digging revealed that he is the owner of a sleazy little Vietnamese restaurant in southern California, and he has been the perpetrator of numerous Craigslist scams involving lost pets and credit card fraud. Nice, huh?
