A friend sent out the email below. I added the italics and deleted a bit of the contact info since the blog is larger audience.
The original email follows:A cat has started hanging around my house lately. Largish but not fat, white at the end of an all black tail. Seems like a friendly well-cared for cat. When it showed tonight around midnight I wondered if it was lost and not just new to the hood. Anybody know who this cat might be? Reply to this message regarding a contact to return the kitty and we will figure a way to get the cat home. It was pretty hungry but didn’t seem totally desperate.
