Cat has gone missing. Can I go and look for her?

My beautiful boy has completely vanished and I'm really starting to worry. I last saw him on Saturday night, and since neighbours have seen him on Sunday morning but he didn't come home last night. I'm a single parent to two kids that would have to come and look with me too.

DCat has a few times gone missing for a few days over the fields behind where I live, it always seems to take me going out there and calling him and after a while he comes running to me and this has always worked since the first time he wondered off. He has a tracker on his collar but I found his collar in my garden.

So, do you think I can head to the fields, kids in tow, to look for him? He hates most people so won't go up to strangers either.

Title was meant to say him!

Yes, go look for your cat.

It is your walking exercise for the day

Yes, go and look. Especially if you're going into empty fields anyway.

Yes, that will be fine - it can be your daily exercise.

I’m so sorry, it is such a worry when this happens. If you have a litter tray leave it outside for him so he can smell it. Or something else that smells of him, like his bed. Also leave out food for him.

If you have your neighbours’ numbers or a local Facebook group, ask everyone to look in their sheds and garages.

This is very typical of cats, and they almost always come home. Will be keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Thank you everyone for replying! The fields are almost always empty when we go for walks there. I'm going to get the DC's wrapped up and go and look and give the neighbours a knock as we go past.

I've also put the litter tray in the garden and left some dreamies by the back door in hope. Unfortunately my two neighbours both have multiple cats so they may munch them but it's worth a try!

@FuckOffCorona DCat is so spoilt that he never sleeps in his own bed but is always asleep on mine. It felt weird going to bed on Saturday night without him there.

Just a quick update - Found him!! Had no luck yesterday despite trying for two hours to find him and came home feeling like that was it, he'd gone. Today I went out later (this afternoon) and after walking half hour calling he came running out from a ditch. He was filthy and meowed continuously on the way home but he's home!! He's less impressed now as he's been brushed, wiped down and fussed over but has also had a huge amount of dreamies. Thank you again grin

Is he under lockdown, now?

Glad he's home.

Peasfox Wed 25-Mar-20 19:19:42

Little sod 😅 into cat isolation he goes!!

FuckOffCorona Wed 25-Mar-20 19:21:20

So glad he is back! I hope he’s locked down in cat prison now grin

Picture or it didn't happen!

Let's see the latest inmate of Covid Cat Gaol-19!

LittleMonstersMummy Thu 26-Mar-20 23:32:21

Not the best photo but it captures his sulking face!

I can confirm he's on lockdown and not happy about it. He's tried to escape twice today when I've been hanging washing out, the cheeky chap! His collar fastening is snapped so I need to get him a new one before he escapes. He's had a day of a lot of play and fuss and seems pretty happy, despite being shut inside! Thank you again everyone grin

Glad you found your cat smile

Good news he’s home that must have been so worrying! One of mine did a 48-hour bunk a few days ago and it was horrible. Of course then when he got round to coming home, he just wandered in non-chalantly and looked at me like his dinner was late.
