The owners of a beloved young cat that went missing in Duncan on Oct. 6 desperately want her returned.

Ashley Robinson and Donnavin Steel last saw six-month-old Maple in front of Robinson’s home on Festubert Street, close to Cowichan Secondary School.

The couple have been busy since then placing signs with a picture of Maple and a contact number on telephone poles and walls all over the community, and working through social media to try and find their cat.

Robinson said she received a tip on Facebook from someone who claims they saw a student from Cowichan Secondary School place Maple in a backpack as the student passed her house, but she has no definitive proof at this time as to whether the tip is true.

Maple is black and furry, with brown eyes and long tail.

“Even though she’s a kitten, she’s my baby,” Robinson said.

“She means so much to both of us. We also bought Kiwian, Maple’s brother, when we decided to buy Maple, and he hasn’t played or eaten since his sister disappeared.”

If anyone knows the location of Maple, they are asked to call either Robinson at 250-748-8604, or Steel at 778-889-3064.
