Inadvertently an outside kitty
Kally since about 6 weeks of age, has been in our home. She's a calico, born with no tail. She has feral tendencies. She was not spayed or declawed. She's been in our home for about three years.
At times she would slip outside, but immediately "hunker down" awaiting to be picked up.
Last evening, a family member, looking for me, must have let her outside while I was out, and upon my return, thought she was just evading me versus being put up for the night.
This morning, she still gone,so I knew she is LOST. Searched the house, the back yard, the front yard, no success.
A female some three months ago, adopted our front yard, and us, as an outside kitty and blessed us with seven kittens August 13, 2009.
My surmise is LILLY the cat who has adopted us, ran off our KALLY...
Question is, will KALLY return to us? Or, what can we do to encourage Kally's return? She has NEVER been outside overnight since we got her as a rescue kitty, headed for euthenasea.

Hi please read my page here about what to do to try and find your cat , it gives advice on the things to do to help your cat return and also who to contact.
It is quite possible that once your cat has explored enough that she will return home, but a un spayed female cat is likely to be out looking for mates.
i hope you find your cat again soon
best wishes kate
