  1. I had a cat disappear about 9 months ago. The neighbors moved out, abandoning their two cats (they better hope I never run into them). One of the cats was very aggressive, even scared my dogs. I think that’s what happened to my baby. About a week ago, I got up in the middle of the night to get a drink of water. My kitty was in the middle of the living room, demanding to be fed. He was filthy, sick, and had patches of hair missing. Interestingly enough, that mean cat disappeared a couple of weeks ago. My kitty is doing much better now. Getting over his cold, cleaning himself up. And the fur is growing back. He’s sure getting lots of attention now that he’s home!

    • Though this reblog was specific to the UK, it had lots of good information, I thought. When my sister’s cat Sox went missing for 10 months, my sister did virtually everything on the list, though he hadn’t been microchipped. She had that done after she finally located him in a shelter several miles from where she lived. You were lucky to find her like that! I hope I never have to deal with a missing cat. I recognize that just because I keep my kitty boys inside all the time doesn’t mean they can’t accidentally get out.

    • Dougy is the one most likely to take a hike. On the other hand, Andy is a screen climber when he sees something really exciting out the window. He’s actually pulled the screen off one window, leaving an escape route. I don’t leave windows open for that reason. Both Andy and Dougy have microchips, but I don’t make the wear collars, perhaps not a good idea.

  2. My cat just got scared and by the time I was able to get around he had found someone not far away. He was not interested in coming home and I have not seen him for quite some time.
