The search for Mattie continues. Numerous tips and possible sightings have been received and checked out. More than thirty strays, all Mattie look-alikes to various degrees, have found new homes (including my home). I've made some new friends along the way. None of us knew each other before the search began!
The hope is that someone who doesn't know about the search nor the reward has taken Mattie into their home. So, to further help getting the word out, advertisements like this one will start appearing soon inside Bi-State buses in the St. Louis area:
Special thanks to Lamar Advertising for their assistance and community support in making this happen.
