missing cat

by Tasneam

Hi, i recently got a 6 month year old cat from the vets, she had previous owners but they didnt want her so we took her. She also previously had an injury. We have had her for 6 days but she unfortunately ran out of the door when it was open. She had been gone for nearly two days and I cant find her, i have patrolled the streets and searched garages. Is there a possibility she will come back? will she know the house after 6 days? as she was only confined to 3 rooms in the house, not the full house. The vet said thats she should stay indoors for a month before letting her out.

Please help me as the whole family is distraught especially my 11 year old sister

Thank you


Answer from Kate
First of all you need to contact the vet to find out where she previously lived in case she s trying to find her way back there. You also need to put posters up etc to try and find her , see this page for more on this


I have a story i can tell you which might help give you hope.

My sister rescued a 2 year old cat and at the same time moved home. So the cat had only known her and the new home which was miles away from his original home for only two days when he went missing, She thought she would never see him again and then 9 days after he went missing she found him sitting outside her door. How he knew where to go etc after just two days is miraculous and all we can think is that he smelt his blanket which she left outside for him and after she called him every day and left food for him etc. So dont give up hope and keep looking.

best wishes Kate
