The case of Bebe, the tabby who was lost, then found, has a happy ending. But now he needs a lift to San Francisco.

Pet Detective Kat Albrecht chronicles the whole case on her blog.

Last November, Bebe's "grandma" was transporting him from Washington to live with his mom, Corri, who lives in San Francisco. During a stop at a Motel 6 in Tacoma, Bebe bolted when grandma opened his carrier.

Missing Pet Partnership quickly responded and set up traps and cameras in order to get Bebe back.

Weeks, then months, went by but Bebe was nowhere to be seen. Then on March 8, Bebe was spotted on a wildlife camera not far from where he ran off. He was even spotted grooming himself in the backyard of a home (WATCH VIDEO).

Bebe was humanely trapped (WATCH VIDEO) near a home just across the street from where he escaped from his carrier.

Kat points out that when they run off, skittish cats - like Bebe - typically find a place to hide nearby.

Bebe is now safe but still needs to get to Corri in San Francisco, but she is not able to come up here. Because Bebe has a history of escape, MPP wants to hand deliver him to Corri.

They are seeking funds to help cover the cost of the trip. You can make a donation via PayPal or send donations to Missing Pet Partnership, P.O. Box 3085, Federal Way, WA 98063. Please be sure to put in the words “Bebe” in the comments section (of PayPal or your check) when you make your donation
