Pets are also stressed during and after storms. Glen Oaks resident Walter Peek is looking for one of his cats who escaped from the house near Coolidge Avenue and Wilson Drive during Hurricane Irene.
Bruce is one of two 10 year-old cats owned by the Peek family. He and sister Jackie are indoor cats that always return home when they've gotten out in the past. Bruce slipped out of the house through an open sliding door when the Peeks were running their generator and hasn't come back yet.
Please help the Peek family find Bruce. He is dark brown with green eyes and no collar. Maybe if you call by name and offer a little tuna, Bruce will come to you. Or maybe he'll return on his own, but for now he is missed by his humans and his kitty sister Jackie.
Update, 3:05 p.m.- If only Patch could take the credit. Walter Peek reports little Bruce is back home safe and sound.
Oh, the cat came back, it couldn't stay away. It was sitting on the porch, the very next day!
