    Default If you were my cat, where would you be?

    This morning my husband wakes me up to ask where one of our cats is. I jumped up in a sleepy panic thinking he's been left out for a couple of days and my husband tells me that he was in the basement yesterday morning. I honestly don't know if the cat was here yesterday when I left around 12:30 and the only way he would have gotten out is if my son put him out. Seeing as how my son is only 2 1/2, we're not getting much insight. This is killing me, it's been cold here and poor Figgy is not up to this kind of wind and weather. My husband is coming home early to tear the basement apart. We have two options, he's off in the basment passed away (he's almost 10) or he's run off. If he's outside, I don't think he would have made it through the night. We've looked in all the usual hiding spots inside and outside. I'm just so bummed, besides my son, our pets are my babies.

    Most cats love to curl up in drawers and cupboards. I would think that if you turned off all the noise in the house and listened, you should hear it if it is conscious and trapped. As I'm sure we all know, cats are vocal when in trouble.

    If he got outside and it's cold, keep checking the outside window sills. My outdoor cats sit there to watch me like tv.

    If you still think he got out, put some catfood on your porch and see if he shows up. Their noses aren't as good as dogs, but if he gets hungry enough, he might find it.

    Chin up, though, cats truly do seem to have 9 lives and can survive the most amazing things.

    Animals are very smart, if he's outside he would've found somewhere warm. Don't worry, he'll come home

    I'm convinced cats are far more resilient then we give them credit for. Mine went missing the day we were flying to FL for vacation!!! We put out a big bowl of food and hoped for the best. When we got home (two weeks later) she was snuggled up with a big tomcat in our backyard, she'd lost a little weight but was no worse for the wear.

    Keep your chin up - he'll be back!

    When passing away, cats generally crawl somewhere dark and closed in.. check all small places. Otherwise, he's probably gone out to get some action.. old cats need lurvin too

    This happened to me right after I moved to my apartment 3 years ago. All of a sudden, we realized one of our cats was missing, and we never even saw her escape (one door).

    I put up flyers (I happened to have a picture of her on my hard drive), I contacted vets, I went to the pound. It was really heartbreaking.

    A month after she disappeared, my daughter was outside and heard a meow on the other side of the fence behind us. She called me immediately, I told her to head out there with a can of tuna. She kept her by the fence until I got home. I tried to figure out if I could climb that fence, the privacy fence on the side (even had to drive over to the neighboring duplexes), but even if I had, there was such underbrush there, I wouldn't have been able to get down all the way.

    Following the fence, we found a spot where it didn't quite meet the ground, I was able to pull it up, my daughter lured her over with tuna, and when she got far enough under, she pulled her out to our side.

    We had her checked right away by the vet, and she was fine. Someone must have taken her in, and she got out of there somehow. She hasn't tried to escape since (although I've caught her being a bit curious), and ever since then she's been much more affectionate.

    Anyway, just thought I'd pass that on, since even if the kitty's escaped, it's still possible for it all to work out!

    It's a male, they always go on the prowl for some kitty. Trust me, I've had 5, and the anxiety is terrible, but all the odds point to him coming back when he's bored or hungry. Good luck.

    Sometimes they get shut into other people's garages, etc. My friend lost her cat, he was away for a while, I think a week or so, suddenly he came back, yelling at her and kind of skinny. He had been shut accidentally into the neighbor's garage, and they had gone away. He was fine after they let him out.
    Keep passing the open windows.

    Has someone else taken him in, thinking he was a stray?

    Default We Found Him!!!

    HOME SAFE AND SOUND!!!

    A few of our neighbors spotted him going down the hill yesterday so we went that way looking for him, checking the woods and dumpsters as best as we could at 9:30 at night, in the very bitter cold and with a 2 year old in the van. Honestly, there are so many cats down there and it was actually warm in some spots that we felt a little better about him being down that way. And, the big restaurant down there is a seafood and steak place, these cats aren't starving. My husband went out for him again this morning and while he was out one of the neighbors from UP the hill calls and asked about him and says she thinks she's looking at him on her neighbors deck. I called my husband and about 20 minutes later he was back home!!! I'm impressed with the little turkey, this is a cat who can't find his way out of a bag (literally, he'll lay down and sleep) and he's galavanting about! Plus, my friend put a flyer up in the doctor's office at the end of the street where she works, well, she talked to one of the neighbors today and apparently my little Figaro went after her Rottweiler. He's a little kitty, but he'll bite anything on the ass that ticks him off enough! That's what the dog gets for crapping in my flower bed.

    Awwww, I'm glad you got him back!

    My mom's cat disappeared for a few days once, and we finally found her up a huge tree in the valley behind her house. She was up the for 5 or 6 days before mom gave in and called some construction guys to bring a ladder. Poor, stupid kitty.
