It’s always scary when a cat goes missing. In many cases, the cat is found or just comes home on its own, but in rare cases, the cat simply goes missing. In Utah, a family lost their cat Spike a year ago, yet they still hope Spike might still be alive. That’s why they’re offering a $1,000 reward.

To help publicize this reward and the missing Spike, a man in a Cat in the Hat costume handed out fliers. Hopefully someone will find Spike soon and reunite Spike with their heartbroken family. If the Cat in the Hat can help find a missing cat, perhaps more people can rely on Dr. Seuss characters to help find their own missing cats.
