3-Legged Cat Missing from Bel Air

Have you seen this cat named Otzee?

One missing cat has her owner hoping for a miracle.

Around 10 a.m. May 23, Otzee escaped her cardboard carrier and jumped out of her owner's car, the cat's owner Ilma Rosskopf wrote in an email to Patch.

The car was parked in the area of Lee Way near in Bel Air at the time of the cat's escape.

"As I grabbed for her, her collar & tags slipped off," Rosskopf wrote.

Otzee, who has only three legs, darted across the street away from the park, into a nearby yard then disappeared from sight.

"She is probably hiding out in the brushwork separating the neighborhood from ," Rosskopf wrote.

While she searched for Otzee late into the night, Rosskopf could not find her cat.

"I have contacted every place I can think of, and gone door to door around the neighborhood alerting people to her situation," Rosskopf wrote.

The cat used to live in the wild and while Rosskopf feels confident Otzee knows how to survive on her own, she is hoping for a safe return.

Otzee's left front leg was amputated after she caught it in a steel trap and it didn't heal. She is micro-chipped and is up-to-date on all of her vaccines. She will come to people for food and to be scratched.

Rosskopf asks anyone who spots Otzee not to try to catch her, because it may scare her, but instead to contact one of the following:

Otzee used to be a feral cat on Mount Horeb RD near Madonna RD in Street. A couple there used to feed her and we are all hoping that her homing instinct may bring her back there. However, it means traveling 13 miles according to my car's odometer.

On or around July 14th, when Otzee was sighted in Shamrock Memoria Tree Grove, her lifeless body was found in a yard 2 doors down from where she disappeared--probably the work of the three foxes that live in Shamrock Park. The people tried to bury her body three times, but it was dug up each time and finally carted away by the foxes or some other animal. R.I.P., Otzee. Poor baby!!!

Sorry to hear about Otzee. Bless you for giving her a good home for a part of her life.

Very cool idea. I think I will have to try this one. I just love the "It's the Little Things" line. Thanks! http://www.nutritioneducation101.com/healthcare-systems/healthcare-systems.html
