If he is indoor only I will add steps. Need to crack open the garage door or other access 24/7 to let him come back inside ASAP. Definitely close by and I’m sure has taken cover for warmth under a shed or crawl space for example. Need to get fliers. They always try to return to the exit they went usually and night and especially between 4-7 am. Keep an eye on that door and focus on luring with soft familiar calls from that door as often as possible. If you have an attached garage crack that just a bit with scent items inside and just outside both doors (garage and door he went out). Scent items are worn clothes of family, his bedding, your slept on sheets, litter box etc. They can hide so well nearby that it seems as though they have vanished. It’s a way of protecting themselves. Flier door to door in a 7 house radius of your home. That’s typically where they stay for quite some time. Even months. Baby monitor outside the door he escaped is always helpful to hear meows or scratching. Also see site for steps to finding an indoor only cat. There are also steps to outdoor access.

Hello, saw your post on PawBoost. I hope Maze finds her way home soon. I understand the pain of losing a kitty (who eventually found his way home) and I wanted to pass on some tips about maybe finding your kitty. If you haven't already, put flyers in many neighbors mailboxes, take to local vets, SPCA and veterinary emergency offices and check with them daily. Look inside, under and around EVERYWHERE - get on hands and knees and look under low structures. Check daily. Do not think they would not go there. Check anyway - only takes a few seconds. If scared, cats can hide in places you would never think. Walk around, stop in a location, call their name and then wait 15 seconds to see if you hear an answer. Also, check outside under all bushes, low decks crawl spaces and sheds inside and out. Ask neighbors if okay to check around their property and inside shed(s). Check any culverts under driveways if there are any and look up. If was chased up a tree, may not be sure or able to get down especially if declawed in the front. Declawed cats can go up a tree but require front claws to come down. Also set out in a protected area from weather a cardboard box with anything she has slept on and an article of your clothing and leave out fresh water daily. I do hope that you find Maze, or she finds you, very soon.
