How did she do it?
The only way she could have left the house is through the balcony. It is a dangerous thing to do but Angelina is very adventurous and determined. When we lived in Sydney, we had to put up a hardwood barrier separating our balcony with the next door neighbour as she had a tendency to "visit" them. But she always comes back when called.
|The balcony ledge that's easily accessed. We have bought wire mesh and closed off the access on Sunday.|
|The other side of the balcony. Not difficult for a very experienced and agile feline like Angelina.|
|She would have jumped onto this area from that ledge. Those doors sealed the utility stuff, they are locked.|
|The common area that we share with three other units. We are on top floor of five storeys. If Angelina had used those stairs to go down, she could be anywhere.|
Wish we have good news to tell but we don't. We have put up posters all over the place, with monetary reward on offer. We've had many phone calls and text messages from people who said they saw Angelina here and there. So far, the cats they described or saw are not Angelina. Now we realise that there are many strays in this area and all tabbies look the same. It's a large area where we live. In the gated compound, there are eight blocks of apartments, outside the gate there's the low cost flats, almost 1,000 units there and also five blocks of shoplots. It's a very high density area. We've also been "told" that she's being kept by someone who likes her. If that is true, we hope Angelina will be returned to us soon.
