HAMPDEN, Maine — A Scarborough woman is offering a reward for her kitten that went missing Monday while she and her pet were staying at a home in Hampden Acres on Western Avenue.

Susan Connolly said she has no idea how her 7-month-old male cat named Spirit escaped from her friend’s home where she was baby-sitting for a few days.

“He’s black and gray with strong tabby markings, a white belly and silky, silky fur,” she said Saturday. “He looks like an adult cat but still has a lot of kitten in him.”

He is not wearing a collar.

Connolly said she got the kitten about six months ago from an animal shelter in Kennebunkport after living for nearly four years without a cat.

“I lost my significant other four years ago on Dec. 15, and my cat I’d had for 17 years died two months later,” she said. “That’s why I named him Spirit.”

Anyone with information about the kitten is asked to call Connolly at 420-7030 or 883-4950.
