she's been gone since sunday and our neighborhood looks like it rained flyers because they're everywhere! Her friend, another cat, has been outside our house meowing since she left. my cat picked the one day to run off when a bobcat and cyote were sighted. I hope she's all right...
 
Awwww... I'm sorry Yomamma. That really sucks.
I hope she'll be ok too.

:frown: I'm sorry yomamma. There is still hope. Sometimes they can get stuck in a tree, or a garage... One of our cats had gotten stuck in an empty house disappeared for ten days. When I was a kid, we had one disappear for two weeks! It was stuck in a wood shed full of mice. So it may be worth checking around the area for any place where she could be trapped or hiding. Also, check the shelters.

Or she could have another family that takes her in when she gets tired of you throwing her off the computer...maybe that's why she's so fat, she gets fed by two families. Cats are sneaky that way.

Seriously, I hope she's okay. Sorry to hear that. It's hard when our furry friends disappear like that. :frown:

I hope she's ok too.
I saw a coyote just the other night, just 3 blocks away from my home. It really startled me, because I live in the city.

I'm sorry, yomamma. I hope she is OK. If it's of any comfort, I've had cats disappear for as long as three weeks. They usually just waltz back in one day like nothing ever happened.

Evo's cat, Foofer takes off on long jaunts as well. We suspect he has a possum smuggling business in Mexico. (it's a long story)

the only reason that I think she might be hurt is because everyday, it's been at least 105 degrees. and since she left, we've had, cyotes, storms, rain, wind gusts, and she's afraid of everything

Have you filed a lost pet report with your local animal shelter? Call the humane society and they should have a list of other places you might want to contact(some areas have animal rescue hospitals where someone might take an hurt pet.) Be sure to post flyers at any local vets.

Visit the local animal shelter every two to three days and check out the cats that have been forund and turned in. Even if you've turned in a lost pet report, it is best to check in person as you now your pet best.

Don't give up hope. Our cat went missing for over three weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. He showed back up two days before Christmas; Thin and hungry, but otherwise okay.

Why don't you just go and buy a new one?

Ooh thats harsh!
If I lose my watch, I buy a new one. If I lose my shoes, I buy a new pair. How is a cat any different? You can probably even get one the same size and colour and everything!

It's worse than I thought, yesterday I found a large amount of pesos and a photo of a possum with the caption "check out that tail!" under his cat box. :bugeye:

yomamma, I was hoping your cat would be back by now, but seriously, they can disappear for weeks and then show up like nothing happened. :grumpy:

You don't buy cats! They're being given away free all over the place. But they pick their owners, not the other way around. :rofl: I take it brewnog is not a huge cat lover. :biggrin:

:rofl: I think they have more athourity than human!so why don't they go to the hell? "maybe because lots of cat lovers are in heaven and they ask God to send them to heaven!"

I take it brewnog is not a huge cat lover.
I don't think his suggestion is because of that.He's a wise person who can find good solutions to problems!JUst imagine someone would tell him "My wife wants to leave me or my child has lost!" :rofl:

Nah cats are ok, especially when they're stupid tiny little kittie witties who don't yet understand the laws of physics. I was just trying to make yomamma see that there's plenty more, urm, fish in the, urm, sea. :smile:
