Here are some easy to read tips to help you get your cat back home: 1. Put wet/smelly food out in the evening. Pick it up during the day or if you notice it's attracting strays. 2. ***PUT THEIR DIRTY LITTER BOX OUTSIDE. SEE NOTE BELOW *** 3. Put out an unwashed article of your clothing or a dirty sheet/towel/t-shirt. You can also make "scent strips" from these items and place them in trails leading to your door. 4. Walk around the area listening for meows, look up in the trees as well. Your cat could be stuck somewhere and unable to get home. Go out in the evening with a flashlight and look under porches, sheds, and any wooded areas etc. LOOK EVERYWHERE, HIGH AND LOW! 5. You can make chum trails leading to your door by using a can of cat food and a gallon of warm water. Shake well and sprinkle in trails leading to your door. You can also make scent trails using dirty litter. 6. Your cat will be most active between dusk and dawn. Trying shaking a bag of treats and softly calling your cat's name while searching with a flashlight to catch the reflection of your cat's eyes. 7. Get fliers up right away and ask neighbors to check their garages and other outbuildings, 8. File a lost report with the appropriate shelter and visit *in person* often. Most cats do not go far, especially those that are not used to spending time outdoors. 9. If you have a certain way of calling her when you want her to come to you at home, go around your property and do it especially just like you do inside now at dusk. Call softly, go slow and then pause to LISTEN and LOOK for any response. Most cats do not go far, especially those that are not used to spending time outdoors. ***Putting their dirty litter box outside or making dirty litter trails around your yard from places she may hide to the point they went missing from (usually your door) quite often works! I know a lot of people that were scared off from putting out their cat's dirty litter after reading posts that say it draws predators and ferals. When they had given up hope of ever getting their cats back and felt they had nothing to lose they decided to put the cat's litter box outside and the cats came home within hours. Just keep an eye on the litter box and if you see any problems take it inside for a while and then put it back out if need be. I have had many people say this is what finally worked for them and have never heard anyone ever say it drew any ferals or predators. Food and chum trails are more likely to draw unwanted visitors than another cat's dirty litter and litter trails. It's your cat and you should try whatever you want to get your cat back home!
