A woman has been left ‘crushed’ after her boyfriend accidentally sold her pet cat.
Roy Dufek took to Craigslist in a bid to rectify his blunder and find the feline which he thinks was unwittingly shipped off to a new home inside a bed.
Camo the cat hid inside a Divan bed that Mr Dufek sold as his girlfriend prepared to moved out of her apartment in Portland, USA.
Worryingly, it was strapped to a car roof.
In a desperate Craigslist post, he wrote: ‘Little did I know when the cat is scared it hides inside the box spring [Divan].
‘He’s no longer in her apartment and we’ve been working with the buyer to search through his house/garage/perimeter where he stored the box spring once he got home.
‘He strapped the box spring on top of the car for the transport so the cat could have jumped out on the transport as well at any moment.’
Mr Dufek is offering a cash reward of $200 (£130) – the money he got for the bed – to anyone who finds him.
He continued: ‘As you can imagine my girlfriend is absolutely crushed. I know some think ‘it’s just a cat’ but if you’ve ever owned an animal I ask that you understand how unbelievably devastating this is.
‘Camo was her world and I was the one who took that away from her days before Christmas of all times of the year.’
