missing cat..how do you cope with the not knowing? - Page 3

post #21 of 25
Yea!!!wee.gif That Is So Great!!! I have 2 inside /outside cats, neutered boys. The first time one didn't come home I worried like crazy! Went to all the neighbors around. We are in the country on 2 and half acres w/ small pond. And creek and lots of trees and brush. I searched a half dozen times around the property and was about to give up after 2 days when the 2nd one was gone and didn't come back in the evening. The next day I looked 3 times. In the evening I started walking around meowing because the second one would always respond to that. 10 minutes later I heard a meow back. And followed it to find both of the about 15 feet from each other in the trees and brush. I must have passed the first one a dozen times but couldn't see him and he was so sick he could barely keep his head up and the other one was very weak. DSO and I nursed them back to health. We used to have strays come by alot and while we discouraged them and would chase them off we weren't as diligent as we should have been.. Ours go to the vet regularly and get all the shots. The vet said probably one of those strays brought some kind of virus like a cold or flu. Now we run off every stray everytime we see one. And so far most don't come back for quite a while. And the boys usually sleep Iin on the back porch.

hey there

I am going through the same thing at the moment.. My little boy has been missing a week now.. Have you found your cat??

I was told to put a piece of clothing that you have worn, outside... Apart from putting up flyers, and registering with the RSPCA and phoning the vets, all you can do is have some faith that hey may come back.. There is stories of cats leaving for 3 weeks and returning.. I hope you find some peace.

We lost our beloved cat two weeks ago. She is a sweet loving house cat, but likes to escape. I had ordered a GPS collar for her, that would have fit nicely on a large German Shepherd. Now that she is gone, I did find one for cats. I think it's $99, and there is a small monthly fee for the service, which I would gladly pay if she were here. If anyone's interested, the name of the company is paw track. It's the only one I could find for cats. Good luck to all, & I haven't completely given up.

Hi, I've lost my darling Lola and it hurts so so much your so right about not knowing where she is! When it rains I cry at the thought she is out in that weather 😔 It's only been 3 days tho so I'm not giving up anytime soon!!! We live in the country side so do u have any tips for finding them there??? If u have lost a cat look at night to find them cause apparently that helps a lot?! Anyway this chat has reassured me thanks xx

My daughters cat went missing for four months! We called everyone and went door to door, no luck.
We put a live trap out with some canned chicken in it and caught her. It took a while, and we also caught the neighbors cat, a couple wild cats and three racoons.
When she came back her tail was bent funny, permanently downward, had fleas and she now has a two inch white scar on her side.
No idea what she went through, but do not give up hope. Do you have access to a live trap? We put ours in an old junk filled garage of our neighbors.
Hope he comes back!
