Leo is Missing in Burke, VA

Share on












Our cat snuck out onto the porch last night and then was ultimately locked out. Leo is NOT an outdoor cat, he is nervous around people he doesn’t know, but he LOVES FOOD (no worries…we watch his diet)—he WILL try to eat people food given the chance. Leo knows how to use the bathtub drain to potty, and he believes he’s a human. He has no identification, as he becomes extremely unhappy wearing a collar (a chip costs too much unfortunately)—but he’s our boy and we miss him so!! Please call Kim and Conner if seen:. We have made an alert at the Fairfax Animal Shelter as well.


No collar, no chip, neutered, not declawed, light brown eyes, adult size healthy looking cat; he is an indoor cat

Kit Oliver thank you for informing us. That is Nick shively’s Maine Coon. He lives in the oaks and is an indoor/outdoor cat. Many ppl have mistaken Leo for this guy. Thank you though. It is greatly appreciated. 🤗

We are still searching. We believe Leo is in someone’s hse. Leo has a “m” pattern on his forehead, and a brown dot on the nape of his nose. He is fluffy and has a bushy tail. My entire family is depressed. PLEASE BRING LEO . A generous reward is offered for info leading to his return—or his return. It is illegal to keep a lost pet. Please turn him in to us or anonymously at Fairfax Animal Shelter. Call/text Kim or Conner: 571-510-2142 or 443-285-1762

Try these tips: Indoor cats that get outside usually stay close but they will hide b/c they get scared of the new sounds and textures outside. Check all hiding places (under decks/porches, sheds, bushes, parked cars, up in trees, in storm drains or other exposed pipes). Ask your neighbors to check those areas of their yards and to open their sheds/garages in case the cat went in unseen and got locked in. Post flyers in your neighborhood b/c not everyone uses fb or knows about these lost/found pet sites. File a report with your local shelter and give them a picture so if someone brings in your cat they will be able to more quickly reunite you. Go in person and ask to see all the cats. Do not rely on staff to visualize your cat the same way you do. Do not rely strictly on pictures posted on their website in case the site is not up-to-date or not all-inclusive. Cats will come out at night to search for food so put a dish of smelly cat food outside near the door the cat most likely went out. You can also try going out at night with a flashlight to see if you can get the reflection of the light in its eyes. Shared and prayingFollow these tips...they work :) Owners of lost cats on the lost and found pet pages have said that these tips work, especially numbers 1, 3 and 5: 1. Put wet/smelly food out in the evening. Pick it up during the day or if you notice it's attracting strays. 2. Put a trail of dirty litter from the box all along the edge of your yard and along trees and bush lines close by and along side any chin trails. Do not out the entire litter box outside. 3. Put out an unwashed article of your clothing or a dirty sheet/towel/t-shirt. You can also make "scent strips" from these items and place them in trails leading to your door. 4. Go out in the evening with a flashlight and look under porches, sheds, etc. 5. You can make chum trails leading to your door by using a can of canned tuna in water (no oil) or canned cat food and a gallon of warm water. Shake well and sprinkle in trails leading to your door. You can also make scent trails using dirty litter. 6. Your cat will be most active between dusk and dawn. Trying shaking a bag of treats and softly calling your cat's name while searching with a flashlight to catch the reflection of your cat's eyes. 7. Get fliers up right away with phone number asking for sightings right away and ask neighbors to check garages, etc. 8. File a lost report with the appropriate shelter and visit *in person* often. Most cats do not go far, especially those that are not used to spending time outdoors. Every 2 seconds a pet is lost..MICROCH IP!! !
