I am with Bring Ace Home - A Lesson In Faith and have helped rescue many lost pets. I am very confident he is hiding nearby. Cats are scared to death when they get out and hide as fast as they can. Sometimes they won’t come out of hiding for days or even weeks. Even if they hear their owner. Their brain is in survival mode. One cat we helped took 14 days to show up at the trap on owners front porch. First thing to do is look around outside under your’s and neighbors porches, sheds and tiny areas you think he wouldn’t even fit in, because usually they can. Put out the feeding station I refer to in #2. Then follow the tips our rescue uses to find lost cats: 1. Hang lots and lots of posters. Every stop sign and intersection in your neighborhood. Then go to major intersections. I am talking a hundred plus signs. 2. Get some cans of Mackerel. Take the juice and put it in a spray bottle and add some water. Spray it in the trees and bushes and along your home foundation. Spray it leading to a big bowl of Mackerel near the door he got out of. You may need to get a trap (Home Depot, Lowe’s, Feed Supply Store) and possibly a camera, unless you have a home security camera. Set it up near the door he got out of. Put the bowl of mackerel in the back of the trap. Spray the juice leading to the trap and into the trap. Line the bottom of the trap with your dirty towel. Change the food and towel twice a day. 3. Look under nearby sheds, decks, bushes. Cats can get in the tiniest hiding places. Ask neighbors to check garages and sheds. 4. Sit outside in the evening talking calmly. Talk and say his name like you would if he was with you. You may have to do this for several hours for several nights. It could take weeks before he shows up. Don’t go after him if you see him. Just keep talking and have him come to you. 5. Put some dirty clothes or your dirty towels outside and his bed. 6. Walk around the neighborhood to get your scent out. 7. Go out with a flashlight at night, calmly walking around looking for the glow of his eyes. Calmly talking to yourself saying his name, so he hears your voice. He is most likely hiding close by and scared. Cats usually come out at night. Don’t give up. Many people give up too soon. This could be a marathon, not a sprint. You’ll get him. 🙏🏻🐾❤️
