Dear Friends of Pets,

I am trying to help a neighbor in need.  Please read this and respond if you have any information.

Early Sunday, about 1:00 a.m., my neighbor (from Holden, Massachusetts) was returning with her brother from
Florida with her 3 cats and was in an accident on the New Jersey Turnpike at Mile Marker 50.  Since I do not
know New Jersey, I tried to find out from the State Police exactly which town, but only know it was in the Trenton
area.  As a result of this accident, my neighbor was extracted from the vehicle, helicoptered in and is now hospitalized 
at Capital Health on Brunswick Ave. in Trenton.  She  is still under complete sedation and continues to be operated on. 

Her brother has quite a lot  on his mind since then.  The vehicle has been completely totaled and he had to get the cats 
back here, so I drove down to Trenton on Sunday late afternoon  and retrieved the cats to bring them home.  However, 
during the course of the accident, he  was only able to acquire 2 of the cats.  The 3rd cat escaped the vehicle at the time
of the accident and he  witnessed it run across the NJ turnpike and make it to the other side.    

I am only trying to locate the cat for her and will come down and get it if it is located.  It HAS been chipped, but I
do not have the chip information as of yet.  Hopefully, her brother can locate that information before the end of the
week.  The cat is a female long-haired calico, black & tan, about 3 years old.   She has been declawed (front paws only).  
She has a distinguishing white-patch around one of her eyes (and we've  dubbed her Phantom of the Opera).  
Her name is "Spicey" and she is very human-oriented and lovable, but has been traumatized, so I assume she will
be skitterish.  Eventually, I am hoping she will make it to a human for help.

Please - if ANYONE retrieves a cat similar to the above, and gets it to one of your shelters, can you please contact me?
I will be able to positively identify her.   I can be reached on my cell at any time:  508-868-2370.   

Thank you so much for your look-out,
