Aphrodite is Missing in Waukesha, WI

Share on












Moving to another state Sunday and need to find her before I go!! PLEASE PLEASE be on the look out for my cat Aphrodite in Waukesha Wisconsin. Last seen on N Hartwell ave across the carwash. She likes to sneak outside when the door opens, but she usually comes right back in when she’s done exploring. But she never came back last night. Please reach out if you see her! She’s scared of other people so please don’t try to approach her. She will run away. If anything she loves the smell of wet food and knows the sound of the can opening!! She might come to you if you put food out near you. She doesn’t have a collar on because she kept taking it off. But she has a mustache on one side of her face.


Black and white small female cat. Black mustache on one side of her face

Hope u find your kitty❤️ Put food near your door. Place a baby monitor and/or home security camera near the food so you can hear/see when your cat is there eating and go and get him/her. Check MADACC and other humane societies. Post on Lost Cats of Wisconsin. Keep checking each day! Check under bushes and other places in your yard and neighborhood to see if he is hiding there. Cats become scared and won't come when called. Don't give up. People find their cats months later. My friend found their cat 3 months after it got lost. It was hiding under a bush in the neighborhood, not coming when called and acting feral… very scared! Prayers! Also recheck the house???

DO NOT put out litterbox, it can attract predators. DO put clothing worn by the cat's favorite person and a can of yummy, smelly cat food on the porch. Go out at dawn and dusk with a flashlight and look under porches, bushes, etc. Watch for reflection of eyes. Also check neighbor's garages where the cat may be trapped. Ask you neighbors before doing these previous two activities. They usually do not go far. Make sure you have checked everywhere in your house in case they are locked in a bat, closet, dresser drawer, etc. Also register on Lost Cats of Wisconsin website and print the flyers they provide. Hang them all over your neighborhood and go door to door and give them to your neighbors several blocks each direction from your house. Create a big version and put it in your yard as a sign so everyone knows your cat is missing.

My heart goes out to you. I have been through it myself. Here are some tips I've put together over 20 years of working with cat rescue. What To Do If Your Cat Got Out & Is Missing: * Don't wait for him/her to come home. Yes, he/she may do that, but most cats are scared and go hiding in small places, mostly close to home, a few houses or a block away. (They can go a few miles if chased or desperate, mostly in desperation looking for water and food.) They hide under cars, decks, patios, porches, in sheds, drain pipes, stairs, window wells, garages, bushes, woods, up trees, roofs, etc. Walk around calling their name, shaking a treat bag or favorite toy with bell. Carry smelly food to encourage them if scared and hiding. Listen very, very carefully for low meows. Use a flashlight to catch and reflect their eyes. A good time to go looking is twilight and very early morning/pre-dawn, when it’s quiet and calm so they may feel safer to come out and it’s also feeding time. * Talk to and alert everyone you know and that lives in your vicinity, as well as local businesses. Notify and check with animal control/shelters/humane societies and local veterinary offices. Post on and check lost sites, such as Lost Cats of Wisconsin (file your report there to create your FREE flyer and a post on Pet FBI ), Craigs List, Nextdoor, various community FB pages. Post flyers on corners/posts, in front of your home, and with neighbors and anyone in the vicinity. * Put out a carrier or something right outside your door for shelter and safety. Place clothing/blankets with a familiar scent, yours and/or theirs, inside or nearby. * Searching, go out a few blocks, then back close, then out farther and back close. You may miss the cat or the cat may move or may not be meowing. Repeat over and over, looking carefully on the ground for paw prints and for places they might hide. * If you have a garage, leave open with smelly food favorites, water, clothing/blankets with familiar scent, their old litter box in garage. If you have a family dog who is close to the cat, give the dog something with the cat’s scent and then a treat; and then go walking around, watching your dog very carefully. You can even do this with another cat close to home, if you have a cat harness and leash. * Get or borrow a humane live animal trap and set it up with tuna or some other smelly cat food. Be sure to check it frequently. But in extreme weather, do not set it unless you can monitor it constantly and bring in immediately if caught. * And never stop looking! Never give up! Too many give up too soon. It may take weeks or more before you find and/or someone turns in your cat to an animal shelter. Make sure to contact and also GO IN PERSON to your local shelter/humane society (HAWS) to look at all of the cats they have there. Don’t rely on just pictures or the person answering the phone to have all updated info on who they have there. They do their best, but you need to check in person on a regular basis.
