So sorry your kitty has gone missing. Kitty is likely hiding close by (especially if an indoor-only cat). Leave food and water nearby. Also place a protected large container shelter with unwashed towel/blanket inside. A little used litter could also betered nearby. SEARCH OFTEN AND THOROUGHLY---under parked cars, down alleyways, in neighbors' yards, under shrubs/piles of debris, up trees, under porches, near dumpsters. Check for open bat doors and broken windows in homes/bldgs (garages, sheds, etc.). Take a flashlight, carrier, and treats/favorite food with you, and call kitty's name while you search on foot. Call out to kitty and listen carefully. Ask around to see if any nearby neighbors feed stray cats. Post flyers *door-to-door* on & around your block, along streets, with local businesses and area vets. Ask neighbors to check their properties and to text you immediately if they see kitty. File a report with Phila ACCT shelter (http://www.acctphilly.org/lostpet/lostreport/) and post on their fb page LostAndFoundPhilly (https://www.facebook.com/LostAndFoundPhilly). Contact your microchip company to report, and update your contact info. Also post on these sites: NextDoor.com and Craigslist (lost&found). Consider purchasing or borrowing a humane trap from ACCT shelter or area rescue groups. Again, search for kitty as often as possible throughout the day! Keep us posted.
