Larkan James, I understand. I'm sure Bear wouldn't fail to return by choice, so she may need some extra help to get home. Thoroughly search using a flashlight during the day and especially when it’s dark and quiet (dusk is best) to determine whether she’s ill or injured and hiding nearby, or stuck somewhere. Check every crack and crevice, look in outbuildings, containers, vehicles, under foundations and porches etc. and listen carefully for Bear’s cries. And it’s important to alert neighbors so they can do the same and make sure Bear didn’t hide and become trapped in a shed or garage, etc.

In addition, take a look at this video that explains the temperament and behavior of a lost cat — it may instill hope of finding your dumpling. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2eCoC63B9I
Good luck! Please keep us posted on your progress.
Bear has a wild spirit. We found her as a feral kitten and I guess some things never change. We have always tried to keep her indoors but she wants out. She’s been in a few fights which is how her left ear got the notch in it. She’s not an aggressive cat. Pretty lazy. I’m just losing hope. She always returns. I still have hope someone picked her up or is feeding her. Thanks for all the help.
Allowed us a strong word. We discouraged her from going outside but she’s fast and she LOVES the outside. She’s use to being outdoors and usually comes when called. We live in a subdivision with lots of fences and yard sheds so it’s difficult. I fear she is injured or stuck. Relying on the kindness of others to keep a look out. Thank you so much everyone.
Bear is use to going outside. She’s always been reliable about returning home and usually comes when called. I fear she’s injured or stuck. Unfortunately in our neighborhood there are many fences and everyone has a yard shed. She could be stuck somewhere. I just have to hope someone sees her and let’s us know. Thank you.
