Search Update 06.02.19

Hi Friends & Neighbors - Bobo is STILL MISSING. 😿 We STILL SEARCH DAILY for Bobo: on foot and online. πŸ•΅πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸΎ THANK YOU for all for the support and help to find him. πŸ™ We printed 1000 more flyers to let people know that Bobo is still missing and we are still looking. We also are advertising the Baldwin Park First Friday Festival (#BPFFF) to help others find their pets or provide info about adoptions. The www.findbobo.com website has added a Project Bobo page for resources and pet listings.

Project Bobo Update 05.29.19

Hi Friends & Neighbors - The Baldwin Park First Friday Festival (#BPFFF) event manager approved my application to host a booth ("Project Bobo") on June 7. The submitted booth name is "Finding Bobo & Friends" 🐱🐢πŸ₯🐰🐹. It may be too late to change to "Project Bobo," but either way it's intended to be bigger than Bobo.


The purpose of the booth is to bring awareness about ALL the lost pets (cats & dogs & birds & other), including Bobo, to Baldwin Park and our sister communities, and how to go about finding them. Information from our local shelters (Orange County Animal Services and Pet Alliance of Orlando) regarding lost pets, pet adoptions, and pet fostering will also be provided. OCAS has approved and I'm waiting on Pet Alliance.


The goal is to provide a community service for our furry loved ones and unite our communities through a heartfelt cause. Even if Bobo is found, I would still like to provide this service and host the booth for other lost pets and our pet shelters.


LOST PET PARENTS or FRIENDS OF, please contact me to learn how to be a Bobo Friend and get the word out about your missing furry family member at this booth. Or even help us man the booth. Prepare your flyers and freebies!


Feel free to send me a chat/private message or contact me directly (info below).


Sincerely,

Vickie Westmark

βœ”οΈPOSSIBLE SIGHTINGS IN BALDWIN PARK:

  • Penway Drive - Kind neighbors let us put up a trap. We didn't catch anything for 3 days, so we brought the trap back home. Thank you, Chuck and Donna!

  • Stanfield Ave - Next to the Cady Way entrance. Thank you, Harrison and Grace!

  • 😿 I’m worried that after 4 weeks outdoors, Bobo will be in terrible condition: dirty, skinny, filled with fleas. If found, remember that he was lost and has a home: Bobo is loved.

βœ”οΈYOUR STORIES & PRAYERS HELP: Monday was a rough day. But when you reached out and shared your own reunion stories, you lifted us and gave us hope that it's possible Bobo will be home one day. We appreciate your prayers. Bobo has been a part of our family from 8 weeks to 8 years old. It may seem dumb, but with no kids of my own, my two kitties are my babies who add life and unconditional love to my home. With one missing there is a hole in our hearts and home. We miss Bobo dearly.πŸ˜ΏπŸ’”


βœ”οΈNEW YARD SIGNS: Thank you Melissa, Liz, and Leslie for letting us put a sign in your yards! πŸ’•


❌MISSING YARD SIGNS: If you see one missing, it wasn't us that removed it. We replaced the Bennett , VA, and General Reese signs.

About Bobo and our search for him: www.findingbobo.love

Hi Neighbors - No luck on our late night walkabout last night 5/9. 😿

We also drove by all the Lost Cat "Bobo" signs to straighten them and found 1 more had been taken down: corner of Corrine & Bennett (Corrine side entering Baldwin). Bobo's not hanging with the feral cat colony either. 😿

Last night we created a Finding Bobo blog to share information about Bobo and to consolidate our search efforts to help others that may have lost their beloved, furry family member. Please feel free to share: https://vickiewestmark.wixsite.com/findingbobo.

The Search Plan for Bobo Beginning 04.19.19

We were clueless about searching for an Escaped, Indoor-Only Cat. 😳

Bobo slipped out of the house on Friday, April 19, 2019, around 9:30 PM. It was an accident. The back door was not seated. Clever Bobo pushed it open and decided to go on journey. We had no idea he was outside as we headed to bed that fateful night. When Bobo didn't hop on the bed and poke me in the head with his paw to wake me up the next morning, we knew something was terribly wrong. That weekend, we searched every 2 hours like clockwork with a 30-minute break. We went up and down every street for blocks calling out his name for an hour, then resting a half hour in between. We immediately posted on NextDoor asking our neighbors to help us find him. Nothing panned out, so we did some research.

We the following plan into action:

  • Week 1: Search in 3 shifts around 7 AM, 10 PM & 2 AM

  • Week 2: Search in 2 shifts around 10 PM & 2 AM

  • Week 3 - 8: Search times between 10 PM - 3 AM


  • 3000 robo-calls

  • 1500 flyers/post cards

  • 30 veterinarians/clinics

  • 34 yard signs

  • 24 online lost & found websites

  • 14 Facebook lost & found pages

  • 7 microchip registries

  • 3 shelters/rescues (online & onsite)

  • 1 Bobo website: www.findbobo.com

  • 1 Bobo Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/findingbobo1/


  • Call, email, & fax vets and post on their Facebook pages

  • Alert services: USPS, UPS, FedEx, landscapers, services, garbage collectors, etc.

  • Place food outside & set humane traps

  • Install cameras to monitor traps & food

  • Keep garage door open to 4"

  • Place familiar smells outside: kitty litter & dirty laundry

  • Purchase a thermal camera (did not work well)

  • Shake treats & carry tuna on searches

  • Read lots of articles about finding lost indoor-only cats


  • DAILY: Implement all new ideas from neighbors and friends…

  • DAILY: Check yard signs and straighten them

  • DAILY: Check online lost & found sites

  • DAILY: Check and Post on Nextdoor and Facebook sites

  • DAILY: Check feral cat colony at Fairwinds Credit Union in Baldwin Park

  • DAILY: Set humane traps
