Need super good wishes and prayers

when i got up this am about 8 , i found that thomas, my cat was gone. he evidentaly went out through heater vent in bathroom floor. that goes directly under the mobel home. it is now 11:30 and i have not found him.

he is not an outdoor cat. once in awhile he would escape , but always came back. usually within the hour.

i am really getting worried. course knowing that a cat will ignore u when u call them ticks me off.

lets do a collective good thought and maybe he will come back.

thank you

babe

i've had indoor only cats that got out a few times, babe. with any luck, it'll just be a one or 2 day adventure, and thomas will return when he realizes that it's better to be fed and pampered inside.

Good kitty thoughts headed your way. I "lost" my cat outside for two days. It had been hiding right under the step at the door he escaped from the whole time. He did come out all lovey dovey and rubbing on the HVAC unit and some potted plants when he heard me calling for him and I got lucky and grabbed him. So...with that being said, your kitty still might be VERY close - under the mobile home also might be too much to ask for

Heeeeeere kitty, kitty, kitty

All my cats have been indoor cats. I know how scary it can be when they get out. I am sending you positive thoughts!

good point, elfie. unless something scares them into running away, they usually were within a short distance to the house.

after living in the boredom of a household, there's so much to explore in the nearby vicinity that they don't go far.

bout a half hour ago, i went out for last look for a while. this is killing my knees.

i spotted him on next door neighbors shed. called and he got down . then when he saw me, he ran under my house.

i have spent the last half an hour trying to entice him with food. almost had him just now, but back under he ran. made me spill food on driveway when i grabbed at him. but back under again.

now he can come out and eat without worrying about me catching him.

dumb stupid cat. thanks for good wishes. keep fingers crossed i can get him out.

babe
