UPDATE: Beast has been found in a nearby shed, hungry but otherwise fine.
ORIGINAL BLOG: Peggi Sue Hoyt, a Huron resident who is active in rescuing cats, hopes a kind-hearted reader will rescue her from her current predicament.
Beast, a much-loved family pet, became spooked when a family visited to look at another cat, and suddenly ran away.
Beast has never been outside, and probably is very frightened, Hoyt told me.
"We searched for hours, through the patch of forest, then into the farmland. We live on Berlin Road in Huron, and he was last seen running toward River Road," she said.
