German native Erich Linder is a well-known and favorite local character to his neighbors and many others in Southampton Village. Erich lived on Jobs Lane for the better part of 30 years and recently had to be placed in a nursing home because of his advanced age and inability to care for himself without assistance. Although Erich is now being properly cared for, his beloved cat Mitzy is in need of that same loving care.Mitzy, a plump black and white cat with bright green eyes was Erich’s main companion for the last ten years of his life on Jobs Lane. She is in desperate need of a loving home without other pets where her new owner can give her the love and affection Erich gave her for all those years. Mitzy is currently being fed by the neighbors, but a more permanent home is her best bet for a long and happy life. If you would like to give Mitzy a new home, contact Mr. Linder’s friend Jocelyn Henry at (914) 837-5964 or send her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Time is of the essence, a new home has to be found for Mitzy before the end of the month.
