Obie has been missing for 48 hours :(

(48 Posts)

He never goes off for more than a couple as he likes his food sad

My neighbour popped round earlier because he hadn't been round (he likes her cat and they hang out together in her garden while I'm at work) and NO-ONE has see him for two days.

I am now seriously concerned. He's friendly, stupid, and a spectacularly large and striking Maine Coon, even with his current shaved patch.. very stealable and equally likely to get shut in a shed sad

Vibes that he reappears please.. I have a bad feeling about this, and I can't bear the thought of not knowing...

Oh No, Medusa. Fingers crossed.

He'll saunter in very soon not understanding what all the fuss is.

eleventybillion Fri 19-Jun-15 22:56:45

Oh no. Come home soon Obie.

Walnutpie Fri 19-Jun-15 22:59:16

All fingers very crossed. Come back Obie!

valrhona Fri 19-Jun-15 23:22:55

Fingers and paws crossed here too Medusa

One of our Burmese once took off for three days.
Ask neighbours to check sheds
Call local vets in case
Go out with favourite stinky food
Sending come home soon vibes.

Oh crap! I expect you're not getting much sleep.

I'm sure the big bruiser will saunter in, with the "and wot?" face. Doesn't stop you from worrying though. Maine Coons are renowned for being able to take care of themselves, aren't they.

No Medusa, don't give up hope it's early days according to Mumsnet! Watch him wander in in the next couple of days, saying, yes, what's the big deal?

PacificDogwood Sat 20-Jun-15 07:31:49

Here's hoping that today is Obie's Coming Home Day.
How awful for you, really hope he's trying to find his way out of somebody's shed thanks

I'm sorry you must be frantic. What's his usual stomping ground, have all the neighbours within it checked everywhere?

Walnutpie Sat 20-Jun-15 09:08:49

Yes, come on Obie, we're waiting! Is he taking advantage of the fine weather to stretch his legs... Really hoping he's quietly sunbathing and listening to birdsong near a mouse nest..but realises it's home time now!

PinkSparklyPussyCat Sat 20-Jun-15 09:32:48

Fingers crossed he's home soon Medusa

No sign of him... had neighbours knocking this morning to ask if he was back.. he is a very sociable boy and well loved. Ophie keeps looking for him and crying sad

Something has happened.. he's just not a wanderer..he has a circuit of about 6 houses. I'm terrified he's trapped somewhere or has got into the back of a car (he likes to snoop)TBH I'd rather find him run over than not know what has happened.

It's coming up to a year since Morph died, I just can't lose another sad

DH has gone to the vets to check if anyone has brought him in, though I think they'd check his chip if that were the case.. and he's very distinctive being such a huge hairy beasty, and I'm making posters sad

cozietoesie Sat 20-Jun-15 10:10:38

Thinking of you all Medusa. I'm quite upset by his absence, actually.

ValancyJane Sat 20-Jun-15 10:11:45

sad If you're on facebook and there's a local group for your area, maybe try posting on there. There are often posts about missing cats on ours and people are always concerned and keep an eye out - sometimes the information has led to the cat being found. Your boy cat sounds so distinctive hopefully someone must have seen him. Fingers crossed for you!

code Sat 20-Jun-15 10:14:44

Come on Obie get your butt home. I'm sorry Medusa it's really upsetting. Thinking of you.

chockbic Sat 20-Jun-15 10:39:55

He's making you pay for that mohican.

Enough now Obie, back to your momma.

PolterGoose Sat 20-Jun-15 11:28:49

Hope he comes home soon flowers

FatherReboolaConundrum Sat 20-Jun-15 16:31:29

OP I've just posted this on another thread but will post here too. Please, please keep calling for him, even if you don't think he can hear you. Someone gave me that advice when our cat went missing a few months ago and it saved his life - he'd fallen into a dead space between two high walls and couldn't get out. DP and I went out several times a day calling his name and eventually he called back. We kept calling and he kept answering and that was how we were able to pinpoint where we was. If we hadn't done that he would be dead now, no question.

I know exactly how you are feeling and I'm so sorry. I really hope you get him back safe and well soon, just like we did flowers

BettyCatKitten Sat 20-Jun-15 16:52:34

Op, I really feel for you as this has happened to me a few times with various cats. With the exception of one cat (run oversad) the others have all returned. I'm willing Obie home to you flowers

Whatabout Sat 20-Jun-15 16:54:10

Hope your cat returns, they pull us apart some times x

Baies Sat 20-Jun-15 16:54:57

They're all doing this at the moment . It's their age and the weather

Don't worry, I'll eat my hat if he doesn't come back. And I don't say that sort of thing lightly

timtam23 Sat 20-Jun-15 18:12:09

Oh no Medusa! How worrying. There does seem to be something around the age of 7-12 months that has some cats just disappearing for a prolonged exploratory stroll. Fingers crossed this is all that has happened here. Keep checking, keep calling him. I know you will be frantic but it is still early days, try to stay hopeful.

Fluffycloudland77 Sat 20-Jun-15 18:25:08

It's meant to be nice tomorrow so maybe sheds will be opened. I am so sorry you havent seen him for so long.
