he didn't come home last night and haven't seen him since sad we've been out looking, put photos on facebook groups and rang all the vets. he's 17 so i'm so scared he's ran away to die. is there anything else i could do?

Knock on all the neighbours doors and ask to have a look in their gardens. It's quite possible he's feeling ill and has hidden himself away somewhere. Do you have a cat flap? How does he normally come back in?

Missing cat advice collated from previous posts:

Put their litter tray/bed/blanket/contents of your hoover outside so that they can follow their scent home.

Put stinky wet food around the boundary of your property.

Post on Facebook local pages, Petlog, community websites, gumtree etc with a photo, date last seen and location, and your contact details. Contacting social organisations for the elderly including church groups are often very helpful and kind.

Print posters with a photo, date last seen and location, and your contact details.

Put posters/flyers with above information through neighbours doors asking them to check sheds, garages and out buildings.

Contact all local vets, RSPCA and PDSA asking them to keep an eye out.

Go out at night when it is very quiet and still to call for them and listen. (this was what eventually brought my cat home).

Knock on doors with your flyers and put a human face to your missing cat. Neighbours are often more likely to check their sheds of help you look when you’ve spoken to them.

thank you for the great advice. he is home now! he was a few streets away and someone recognised him from one of the facebook posts and got in touch. they brought him round just now. poor thing was starving so he's had loads of food and cuddles ❤️ so happy!

i think he must of went for a walk and got lost. he never normally goes out of our street. i don't think anyone fed him though as he was so hungry when he got back so hopefully he doesn't go there again smile
