Great! Now is there a lost and found section, esp for pets on the patch? Can't find it. An injured black cat in my 'hood and wondering if it is looking for its owner. Can't catch him myself.

Hi dormonter, We don't have a section specifically for that, but when there are lost pets in the neighborhood, I do typically run a notice on Patch with a description of the pet, in case anyone is out there looking. Could you email me (erin.faulk@patch.com) some info about what the cat looks like and what streets you've seen it on/around? I'm happy to post something. Thanks!
