HELP NEEDED: Lost Cat 'Elway' Missing in Candlewood Road Area

Lost Cat in the Brookfield Area between Mist Hill Drive and Candlewood Lake Road. Reward if "Elway" is safely returned. Asking for your help!!

Asking the nearby residents in the Mist Hill/Candlewood Road area in Brookfield for their help. On Friday, October 12th, our cat, "ELWAY" ran away from home.  He is an indoor car primarily but while we were away, the fire alarm went off in our house and a neighbor called 9-1-1.  When the Brookfield Fire Department arrived and got into the house, Elway ran off. 

If you see him or have him, please call me, Victor Amatori (203)444-8085.  A REWARD will be given if he is returned to us.  ELWAY is a friendly cat, just scared!!!!

I'm pretty sure Brookfield outsourced it's Animal Control Division - I thought to New Milford because they had facilities Brookfield didn't want to deal with. Check New Milford's.

To everyone who has blogged comments and suggestions about rescuing Elway, I want to take this time to thank each and everyone of you for your help. You have all been so very helpful.. I also want to share in the GREAT news that we found Elway in our neighbor's yard late Sunday night right before the storm.!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We had been told he was lodging under our neighbor's porch and so we set up the Humane Trap right by it. My wife had also spotted him but by the time she went to try and rescue him, she lost his location. We went out Sunday night to hopefully find a miracle and there Elway was!!! Unharmed... We had to take him to the Vet's to take out a tick, but outside of that he looks healthy. My only questions to all my friends here is this: With him being gone for close to 18 days, can that have a change in his attiude/personality?? All he is doing now is resting and sleeping. He is definitely eating and drinking water but he's not his energetic self yet. I realize that it has only been two days but hes not himself... yet, Any thoughts before i take another trip to the vet's for a full exam?? Again, My sincere thanks go out to all of you for helping me through a very stressful and difficult experience. Thank goodness for a happy outcome with Elway!!!

HOORAY!!!!! I'm SOOOO excited (and relieved!!) that Mr. E is HOME!! I'm certainly not an expert, but I think Elway will resume his 'domestic' behaviors after acclimating. I had a very ill cat that was at the vet's for weeks. Once home, her behavior was markedly different for a few days, At the moment, she is playing with a toy and swatting her 'sister.' (Some things are just meant to be .) Again, WONDERFUL NEWS!!!

He is most likely dehydrated and I would suggest getting him to the vet for some sub Q fluids.

Oh, thank goodness he's safe. Thank goodness Elway didn't have to go through Sandy.
