ROCKCREEK, Ore., Dec. 24 (UPI) -- An Oregon man said he is searching for his girlfriend's cat after he mistakenly sold a box spring that the feline was using as a hiding place.
Roy Dufek of Rockcreek said in a Reddit post he was selling two bed sets for his girlfriend while she was at work last week and he did not realize until later that his girlfriend's cat, Camo, had apparently been hiding inside a box spring he strapped to the top of a buyer's car.
Dufek, who was in the process of moving when he sold the items, said the man who purchased the bed set allowed him to search his house, but there was no sign of Camo. The man said he had heard unusual noises while affixing the box spring to the top of his car.
Dufek said his posts on Reddit and Craigslist have resulted in an outpouring of support and offers of assistance, but so far there have been no confirmed Camo sightings.
"People have told us stories of their cat that was gone a few months, or a month, and found the way home. So that gives us hope," Dufek told The Oregonian. "The only issue is we don't live at that apartment anymore."
