Posted on 12/03/2012 9:16:02 AM PST by edpc
One of our cats (LT - short for Little Thing) got out the other night while taking out the dogs. She is a very special cat and we have spent a lot of time trying to find her. Please pray for her safe return.
If those on the kitty ping list have any suggestions that may lead her back home, I would appreciate it. We leave the garage door slightly up at night with food hoping she'll find her way.
Slings, who has the Kitty Ping list?
Asking for help from the kitty ping list....
Any particular sounds she is used to hearing that she may come to?
Check with the neighbors. Look in sheds and out buildings. Mine was found in a storage building and the ending was good.
So sorry about LT (one of ours was named LC for “Little Cat”).
Someone left our sliding glass door ajar during the day and Tiger, our beautiful rescue cat escaped. We never found him, unfortunately and I prayed that he found a good home with people who loved him because he was a wonderful wonderful cat and great companion.
Another cat “Jesse” hid for 2 days when someone tried to break into our home — she finally appeared as if nothing happened.
I truly hope you find LT and I will think of him tonight when I feed “Ghostie” — a stray who showed up in the yard 10 years ago and never left.
Yes, she generally responds to the sound of food in her bowl when it’s rattled. I have tried that around the neighborhood during the day and evening.
Has she been chipped or does she wear a collar?
I empathize with you fully; I lost a cat several months ago and was frantic to find her - posted “lost cat” posters around the neighborhood and contacted neighbors about her. She did come back a week later, chewed on a little (friends thought it was from the talons from a bird of prey) but okay.
I’ve learned since that cats will get spooked and hide for days on end, often within a hundred feet of their home, until hunger or thirst drive them back home. Don’t worry, this could apply to your beautiful kitty.
Ping this over.
Thank you. I have put up fliers, knocked on doors, called the local vets, and asked to check under neighbors sheds and decks. We’re still hopeful, as the weather has been mild.
Prayers, edpc! I truly hope your kitty cat finds her way back home.
Prayers. Don’t give up. Our Calico got out of the house and showed up 7 days later in our backyard hungry and happy to be home.
Just an idea but did you check out Craigslist. I have a neighbor that found her lost dog that way (her pooch traveled quite a few miles from home or maybe was picked up?). Either way, it wouldn’t hurt.
Is she very skittish and shy?
Or would she seek shlter with some kind voiced person?
Prayers for a safe return. If she has a calm favorite pet companion, dog or cat, you might take it around the neighborhood and see if she comes out.
Check your local Humane Society and or pound. I had an incident 2 years ago with my cat who we never let out. He escaped while I was weather stripping a door and never came back that day. I checked all my neighbors Facebook pages who I am not friends with and low and behold there was my cat on one of them. I reported it to the local Humane Society and the next day the neighbor reported finding the cat and then promptly returned it to me.
We had one stuck between a neighbor’s storm and front door while they were away a few days and came home when they did.
I had a girlfriend who stood outside screaming “Tiger” like a banshee for an hour and it worked. That was 27 years ago, I’ll never forget it.
Prayers for the safe return of your cat.
I've been that guy before - walking through neighborhoods rattling a kitty dish and call her name.
Only cat lovers would understand, (everyone else must have thought I was quite mad).
