Get out there! Call the shelter, post signs, go door to door. Call him.

Sorry about your missing cat!

My older cats have all died pretty close to home (generally outside, though). Maybe someone picked him up and dropped him off at a shelter? You could give them a call!

This is heartbreaking.  I’m so sorry.

When we had a cat who got out and went off to die, she crawled underneath the porch. Can you check underneath any buildings/decks/sheds/etc?  Or any corners that are hidden?

I’m so sorry. My old cat got out of my dad’s house and was missing for 3 weeks and he was found and was worse for the wear but still alive. He was probably around 15 then and he is almost 20 now. So it’s still possible to find your cat.

I’m so sorry about your kitty.  I’ve gone through this 3 times.  Two times the cat had just ran off and was being silly (one of them ran away cause he chased a female cat, neighbours had seen him).  The third didn’t end so well.

I pray that your kitty comes home safely!

So sorry you haven’t found him yet. A friend of mine lost her kitty for just over 2 weeks in the peak of summer, she feared the worse…he’s home now. A few neighborhood kids had taken him and were acting like he was their secret pet. Eventually a parent found out and returned him. He was hungry and had lost some weight, but he’s happy, healthy, and home now.

I hope things turn out for the best or at least you get some sort of closure on this…it’s so sad. I’m so sorry. Hugs.

@PixelMePretty:  I feel your pain.  We have 2 indoor/outdoor cats.  Our oldest cat (hes only 4) would ALWAYS come home within an hour after we got home from work.  Or he would come running when we called his name.  Well, after almost 3 days of him not coming home, and me being convinced that he was dead we found out that these weirdos down the street were feeding him and keeping him in their house. He does not look like a wild cat at all, he is groomed to perfection and a healthy weight.  Anyway we keep having problems with these neighbors, and now our cat only goes out 4 days a week.  It is so stressful.

Definately call animal control and ask about any other missing cats in that area.  If no other cats are missing, your cat may just be enjoying the outside too much or may have been catnapped!

Good luck!  Hope everything works out!
