The owner of a missing cat is asking for help. "My baby has been missing for over a month now, and I want him back so badly," said Mrs. Brown, a 56-year-old woman. Mrs. Brown lives by herself in a trailer park near Clovis. She said that Clyde, her 7-year-old cat, didn't come home for dinner more than a month ago. The next morning he didn't appear for breakfast either. After Clyde missed an extra-special lunch, she called the police.

When the policeman asked her to describe Clyde, she told him that Clyde had beautiful green eyes, had all his teeth but was missing half of his left ear, and was seven years old and completely white. She then told the officer that Clyde was about a foot high.

A bell went off. "Is Clyde your child or your pet?" the officer suspiciously asked. "Well, he's my cat, of course," Mrs. Brown replied. "Lady, you're supposed to report missing PERSONS, not missing CATS," said the irritated policeman. "Well, who can I report this to?" she asked. "You can't. You have to ask around your neighborhood or put up flyers," replied the officer.

Mrs. Brown figured that a billboard would work a lot better than an 8"x11" piece of paper on a telephone pole. There was an empty billboard at the end of her street just off the interstate highway. The billboard had a phone number on it. She called that number, and they told her they could blow up a picture of Clyde (from Mrs. Brown's family album) and put it on the billboard for all to see.

"But how can people see it when they whiz by on the interstate?" she asked. "Oh, don't worry, ma'am, they only whiz by between 2 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. The rest of the day, the interstate is so full of commuters that no one moves." They told her it would cost only $3,000 a month. So she took most of the money out of her savings account and rented the billboard for a month.

The month has passed, but Clyde has not appeared. Because she has almost no money in savings, Mrs. Brown called the local newspaper to see if anyone could help her rent the billboard for just one more month. She is waiting but, so far, no one has stepped forward.

Con mèo mất tích

Chủ của con mèo mất tích đang nhờ sự giúp đỡ. "Con tôi bị mất tích hơn một tháng rồi, và tôi muốn nó về quá chừng," Bà Brown, 56 tuổi nói. Bà Brown sống một mình trong công viên đường ray gần Clovis. Bà nói Clyde, con mèo 7 tuổi không về nhà ăn tối cả một tháng trước. Sáng hôm sau, cũng không thấy xuất hiện ăn sáng. Sau khi Clyde lại không ăn bữa trưa đặc biệt, bà gọi cảnh sát.

Khi cảnh sát bảo bà Brown mô tả Clyde, bà bảo ông ấy rằng Clyde có màu mắt xanh lục đẹp, có tất cả các răng nhưng bị mất nửa tai trái, và bảy tuổi và hoàn toàn trắng. Sau đó Bà bảo cảnh sát là Clyde cao một foot.

Hết tiếng chuông. "Clyde là con của bà hay là thú nuôi?" cảnh sát nghi ngờ hỏi. "Ạ nó là con mèo của tôi, dĩ nhiên," Bà Brown trả lời. "Bà ơi, bà chỉ báo cảnh sát NGƯỜI mất tích, chứ không phải MÈO mất tích," cảnh sát dị ứng nói. "Vậy, tôi phải báo cho ai?" bà hỏi. "Bà không thể. Bà phải hỏi thăm hàng xóm hay dán ảnh," cảnh sát đáp.

Bà Brown đoán rằng bảng quảng cáo có thể làm tốt hơn miếng giấy 8"x11" trên trụ điện thoại. Có một bảng quảng cáo trống cuối đường cao tốc liên bang. Bảng quảng cáo có số điện thoại trên đó. Bà gọi điện, và họ bảo bà phóng ảnh của Clyde (từ an bum gia đình bà Brown) và đặt trên bảng quảng cáo cho mọi người nhìn thấy.

"Nhưng sao mọi người có thể nhìn thấy, họ toàn phóng vút qua đường liên bang?" bà hỏi. "Oh, đừng lo, thưa bà, họ chỉ phóng vút qua vào 2.a.m. và 5:30 a.m. Phần còn lại của ngày, đường liên bang đầy cứng không ai dịch chuyển được." Họ bảo bà giá chỉ $3,000 một tháng. Nên bà lấy hết tiền để dành và mướn bảng quảng cáo một tháng.

Một tháng trôi qua, nhưng Clyde vẫn không xuất hiện. Vì bà không còn tiền để dành, bà Brown gọi một tờ báo địa phương nhờ giúp đỡ xem có ai cho bà thuê bảng quảng cáo chỉ thêm một tháng. Bà đang chờ, nhưng chưa có ai đến.

Chủ nhân của một con mèo bị thất lạc yêu cầu được giúp đỡ. "Bé cưng của tôi đã bị mất tích hơn một tháng nay, và tôi mong nó trở về quá," Bà Brown, một phụ nữ 56 tuổi nói. Bà Brown sống một mình gần Clovis ở khu vực dành cho những người có nhà lưu động. Bà cho biết, chú mèo Clyde 7 tuổi của bà, đã không về nhà ăn tối hơn một tháng rồi. Buổi sáng kế đó chú cũng không có mặt để dùng điểm tâm. Sau khi Clyde bỏ qua một bữa trưa đặc biệt thịnh soạn, bà gọi điện cho cảnh sát.

Khi cảnh sát yêu cầu bà mô tả Clyde, bà bảo với cảnh sát là Clyde có đôi mắt màu xanh lá tuyệt đẹp, có răng đầy đủ, nhưng bị khuyết mất một nửa lỗ tai trái, và được bảy tuổi và trắng hòan toàn. Tiếp đó bà bảo với viên sĩ quan rằng Clyde cao khoảng một foot.

Chuông điện thoại reo lên. "Clyde là con của bà hay là thú cưng?" viên sĩ quan cảnh sát nghi ngờ hỏi. "Ồ, tất nhiên nó là con mèo của tôi rồi," bà Brown trả lời. "Thưa bà, bà có nhiệm vụ báo cáo về việc CON NGƯỜI mất tích, không cần báo cáo về việc CON MÈO mất tích," viên cảnh sát cáu kỉnh nói. "Được rồi, vậy tôi có thể báo cáo vấn đề này với ai?" bà hỏi. "Bà không thể làm được điều đó. Bà phải hỏi thăm láng giềng xung quanh hoặc bà có thể dán các tờ bướm thông báo," viên sĩ quan trả lời.

Bà Brown nhận thấy một bảng quảng cáo có hiệu quả nhiều hơn một mảnh giấy cỡ 8"x11" trên trụ điện thoại. Có một bảng quảng cáo còn trống ở cuối con đường không xa với xa lộ liên bang. Có một số điện thoại ở trên bảng quảng cáo. Bà gọi vào số điện thoại đó, và họ bảo với bà họ có thể phóng to bức ảnh của Clyde (trong an-bum gia đình của bà Brown) và dán lên bảng quảng cáo để mọi người trông thấy được.

"Nhưng làm sao người ta có thể trông thấy được khi họ lao nhanh trên xa lộ liên bang như thế chứ? bà hỏi. "Ồ, đừng quá lo lắng, thưa bà, họ chỉ lao vút qua như thế trong khoảng từ 2 giờ đến 5 giờ 30 sáng thôi. Thời gian còn lại trong ngày, xa lộ liên bang kẹt cứng với những người đi làm đến mức không ai nhúc nhích gì được." Họ báo bà biết chi phí chỉ có 3.000 đô-la một tháng. Vì thế bà đã vét hết số tiền trong tài khoản tiết kiệm của mình để thuê bảng quảng cáo trong một tháng.

Một tháng đã trôi qua, nhưng vẫn không thấy Clyde xuất hiện. Do bà gần như không còn tiền tiết kiệm, Bà Brown gọi điện cho tờ báo tại địa phương để hỏi thăm có người nào có thể giúp bà thuê bảng quảng cáo chỉ thêm một tháng nữa hay không. Bà đang trông chờ, nhưng cho đến nay, chưa có ai đề nghị giúp đỡ cả.
