Bardot -- a 78-year-old actress, singer, former model and animal rights activist -- said 2-year-old Rontonton, her favorite cat, vanished while gardeners were trimming bushes March 26 at her St. Tropez property, The Local.fr reported Friday. The feline does not have a collar or an identifying tattoo.
"My pain is terrible. I cannot sleep," Bardot told the Nice newspaper Var Matin.
Var Matin said a hotline set up to help find the cat has received about 200 reports of sightings.
