Lost Cat

by Lisa

One of my friend's cats was having a bad experience sharing with two other bigger cats in their house and so I took him in. Inca is about fourteen months old. He has been in my house twenty four hours - I live in a duplex apartment with balconies on the lower floor (first floor of the block). This morning I came down and found he had gone - one of the windows had been slightly ajar. I've been able to trace his exit onto the street by his fur and believe he got down safely. He probably could get back up again. I'm concerned he doesn't really know where he is, however, although used to live in this area a few months ago. I looked for him near his old address but haven't seen him. Am very worried about him as he is quite a shy cat who my freind tells me usually comes off the worst in fights. He doesn't go out hardly at all because he hasn't been spayed yet. Any advice about how to find him?

Hi Lisa
well All i can say is that my sister lost a cat she had only had for two days and he came back after 9 days even though he was new to the area and the family. so there is hope.
Leave something outside of his on the balconly ie his bed, this will help him find his way back. Also call him regualaly and eave some food out.

Also you will need to put posters up etc and conatct local animal charities etc who may have found him etc.

I have built a web page about how to try and find a lost cat here


I hope you find him soon. don't give up hope keep looking and calling. Often after they have had a roam they will try and find their way back.

best wishes Kate
