"I just hope someone is taking care of him," said Betty Stamper.
"I hope someone brings him back," Lanham added.
Flyers have been placed in stores and gas stations around the county. People call the store daily to see if Stanley has returned, especially those who used to stop by just to bring him treats, Lanham said.
"About half of Putnam County is searching for him," Lanham said. She's gotten several calls reporting sightings of a gray and white cat, but none turned out to be him. "I'll get my hopes up and then it's not him."
"His blanket is clean and we have a big bag of treats waiting on him," Stamper said.
If you see Stanley, call the hardware store at 304-757-7255 or 304-757-2469.
