    Please return my dear Sammy to me. He is lost in a strange place and I am very worried about him. Please open his ears to my voice so that he will emerge from his refuge and return to my loving arms. I miss him so much!

    I humbly ask St Gertrude to look out for my missing cat, Sisko, and if possible, send him home to me safe and well. Last time I had a cat go missing, I posted a prayer to her, and he was found the next day after being locked in a garage in a nearby street for 15 days. He made a complete recovery. I pray that my little Sisko will be as fortunate. Thank you Lady,

    I have also read that she is the patron saint of cats, travelers, the recently deceased, and the mentally ill.
    I pray that she keeps my kitties safe, both living and dead, and me safe in my profession.

    Please offer prayers with me to St. Gertrude (and all the saints who are patrons of cats) on behalf of my cat, Pumpkin, who is going to the vet today. She hasn't been eating much and has lost a bit of weight. Thank you.

    Our beautiful, beloved cat, Tiny, went missing in the storm several days ago and we have not been able to find her. I am offering prayers to St. Gertrude and would appreciate any and all prayers for her safe return home. God Bless.
