How to Find a Missing Cat

Updated on October 14, 2014

Tips and advice to help find a lost cat

It's a desperate time when your cat goes missing. My cat Freddie has gone missing three times, firstly for five days, secondly for 14 days and the last time for ten days. He is normally a cat that will come back home every one to two hours and never wanders far so I was extremely worried each time he went missing. However, I learned a lot about how to get a cat back each time he went missing so if your cat is not with you at the moment please take advantage of what I have learned and click through to some other websites with more excellent advice.

Start looking early

Start your search as soon as you realise your cat has gone missing. If your cat has got lost, the quicker you get started the less time he has to wander. However, if you haven't done this don't despair there's plenty more you can learn and do that will help you get your cat returned to you. Keep reading for more advice.

Start close by

Cats are territorial and many will rarely leave their territory unless something has scared them. Therefore most cats that go missing are found within a five house radius from where they live. Make sure you check your back garden and those of your neighbors thoroughly. Is there anywhere your cat could be trapped or hiding? As you know cats can be curious and get trapped in all kinds of places they venture into.

The first time Freddie went missing was for five days and we searched everywhere, near and far. It wasn't until our neighbor told us he had seen Freddie in our garden on day four that we concentrated our search nearby. We put out some salmon for him in the garden at 11pm at night on day five and spent about an hour calling for him. When we went back inside our house, he creeped out to eat the fish about five minutes later. I couldn't believe it. He had been hiding just by our house. When we took him to our vet, he noticed Freddie had a bite mark on his leg and said he had probably been in a fight with another cat. My theory is the fight scared him so much he went into survival mode and into hiding where he felt safe. He only ventured out when it was dark and he was hungry enough.

If you think your cat is hiding nearby a good tip is to put out some strong smelling fish when it gets dark. Do it at the same time every night. Then try to keep watch from a distance to see if your cat will venture out to eat it. When he is hungry enough he will venture out when he feels safe which is normally under the cover of night.

Update - Since writing this article, I've read advice not to put out strong smelling fish at night in case it attracts predators and other big cats and therefore scares your cat from coming back. This is definitely something to bear in mind. It did work in Freddie's case though. We put it in an area where it was light enough to see who or what was eating it and watched the food. We only left it out for a short amount of time before he was back.

Also talk to your neighbors and ask them if they've seen your cat. Local children are also good to ask as they often notice animals and will often help you with your search.

Think like your cat

Each cat is different and the scenario that has happened to them may depend on several factors such as their personality, whether they are an indoor or outdoor cat or whether something has scared them.

For example, research has shown that indoor cats that have escaped are very likely to be hiding near your house. They have panicked and gone into survival mode, so are probably hiding within a three house radius. They are too scared to move and will probably not respond to your calls. They are hiding in silence so as not to attract any predators, they are following their survival instinct.

In fact when any cat is hurt or scared they are very likely to go into hiding and not respond to your calls. You have to remember that the cat doesn't think like a human. Even though they may recognise your voice, they may not respond to it because their ancestor instincts tell them its safer to remain quiet so as not to attract any attention.

There are lots of other factors that may influence what has happened to your cat.

Think about factors such as : Does your cat wander far? Some cats do wander a lot further than others and may have simply got lost? Could something have scared him/her? Could they have been feeling sick? Are they a curious cat? Could they have ventured into nextdoor's shed? Would they have jumped into a car/van? Have you recently moved? Could they have gone back to your old property? Is your cat neutered? Cats which aren't neutered will often wander a lot further in search of a mate. Answers to these and other questions could help give clues about what may have happened to your cat and help you with your search.

The subsequent times Freddie went missing he had left his territory and one time was found a few streets away and the next time was even further away. Some cats seem to have a natural instinct to return to their homes but I don't think Freddie was one of them. He just got hopelessly lost. We have learned that Freddie only goes missing if he is let out after dark. I think this is because it is darker, quieter and he feels safer exploring at this time. We have a cat flap and both times he went missing, he went out at about 11pm at night and never came back. Now, we close the cat flap when it gets dark and he is no longer let out a night. He hasn't been missing since. He never wanders far in the day. Your cat may be like Freddie and goes wandering. Did your cat go missing at night? Could he have got lost? Or his personality may be totally different which suggests a different scenario.

More information on lost cat behaviour

To help you understand how your cat might behave when it is lost, please look at the link below.

Don't give up

As soon as you give up looking for your cat, your cat is more likely to stay lost. Cats are driven by strong survival instincts and can survive a long time without access to food and water.

Cat owners often give up looking for their cats due to what is known as grief avoidance. They can't bear to think that their cat is out there hungry and on their own so they conclude that he is dead and try to move on. Try not to think like this. Remember your cat doesn't think like a human, they aren't thinking I miss home and having emotional feelings. It is likely that they are just trying to survive and are probably doing a good job of it.

The second time Freddie was missing for 14 days. He was handed into a cat shelter and when he came back home it was obvious that nobody had fed him. He just ate and ate. I'm sure he managed to find titbits to keep him going but he got by. Cats have been known to be returned to their owners after weeks, months and years so don't give up looking. And remember if your cat has wandered and got lost he is more than likely doing a good job of getting by.

Put up posters

Once you have covered the ground nearby your own house and you have had no luck, start putting up posters. Leafleting the houses nearby can also be productive. We posted missing leaflets to about 100 houses near to where we live when Freddie was missing. When Freddie came back, a lot of people noticed him and phoned us to let us know they had seen him. So people do and will respond to leaflets and posters. It is definitely worth doing.

This link below takes you to a missing pet poster creator which can help you make a poster quickly and easily containing all the information you should include

Think Positively

Don't torture yourself with all the horrible scenarios that could have happened to your cat. Remember most people are generally nice and will not harm your cat. Cases of cats being stolen or displaced by other humans are rare. On the occasions that Freddie went missing for 10 and 14 days two different people put Freddie in a cat carrier and in their own time took him to a cat rescue centre as they had noticed he seemed lost.

Of course bad things do happen and it is possible your cat may have died or been taken but it is most likely they are lost, hiding or trapped so think as positively as possible, keep looking and try not to give up hope.

Some people do feed cats they think may be stray or lost and if this happens your cat will probably hang around where he/she is getting fed instead of trying to get home. Families and children do adopt cats they think are stray. Although this may not be a favoured outcome for you this kind of scenario is just as likely (probably more likely) as all the horrible things you imagine happening to your cat.

Look when it's dark and quiet.

You could also walk around the neighbourhood looking or calling for your cat.

If your cat is lost or hiding it may be waiting until it's dark to come out and search for food. It is therefore best to try and wait until late at night when the roads are quiet. At this time your cat is more likely to hear your calls and to respond. Remember to stop from time to time and listen for your cat. If you do go out at night make sure you take somebody with you, don't put your own safety at risk. Our cat has gone wandering on a couple of occasions and we have walked the streets calling his name when he hasn't come back as expected. We found him and got a response. Our cat doesn't have much sense of direction and I have no doubt that if we hadn't gone out on these occasions, called his name and found him we would have lost him again. You do feel a bit of an idiot calling out for a cat but its definitely worth it especially if you find them.

Having said this, calling for your cat may not work if your cat has gone into hiding and is scared. Even if they hear their name, if they're scared for any reason they won't come out as they don't want to attract any attention from predators. Freddie didn't respond to our calls the first time he was missing even though he was nearby as I think he was too scared. If your cat is hiding and you go out and look for him after dark, take a flashlight. You can then use it to look in bushes, under cars and other places where he or she may be hiding. This is useful if your cat is not responding to your voice.

Baby Monitors and Missing Cats

Since writing this article I have had some more tips on finding lost cats given by readers and people who've lost their cat in the comments box below. One tip which helped an owner get their cat back was using a baby monitor. They put a baby monitor outside (next to some food they had also put there) so if their cat came back in the night they would be able to hear him. In the words of Wesley who put forward this tip:

"A concerned neighbour (who seen my flyer) contacted me and suggested using baby monitors. I had been worried sick that I would miss him if/when he showed up and this was such a simple solution - I loved the idea, so I set a monitor out on the porch with a bowl of his food and a bowl of tuna and sure enough within a couple of days I heard a faint mewing when he came back in the middle of the night. (3am) He was smelly, hungry and had lost a bit of weight, but he's home now and is really, really happy."

Thoughts to keep your spirits up....

Cats who are in nearby surrounding territory will often come out of hiding and back home when they are hungry and thirsty enough and when they feel safer. This quite often happens 5 to 10 days after they have gone missing.

Cats are blessed with incredible instincts to survive and it has been known for cats to return months, even years after they first went missing.

Most people are generally nice and there is quite often somebody who will look out for a cat who they think is stray. Many people will respond to posters and are often willing to help so this can only help in your search.

Many cats do come back on their own too. My neighbor's cat just went missing for two weeks. They'd looked everywhere. He just turned up one morning outside their house and was warm and well fed. Must have been somebody close by looking after him. We're not sure why he came back, but he's been hanging around ever since.

Use Facebook

If you're on facebook and are in contact with friends and family who live very close to you, consider posting on facebook to see if anybody has seen your cat. You may even get offers of help to look for your cat, spread the word, put up posters etc. At the very least you should get some well needed emotional and moral support.

Another thing you can do is set up a facebook page for your missing cat. This can contain detailed information including photos, more information about their personality, the noises they make and their habits. You could advertise the page on your missing cat posters so people can comment on your page and add any information they may have. They can also like your page and put a link to it in their status so friends and family who live near them may hear the news too. Making a facebook page is as easy as making a facebook profile page for a person. You can start here.

Some people have set up missing pet pages for the area that they live in. This could be really helpful. If people in the area that you live like the page on facebook, it can get sent to lots of people living in your area. This article gives an idea of how a facebook page for missing pets can help reunite missing cats with their owners

      I want to share my story because it didn't end well in my case, so if it can help someone with a lost cat, it would've serve a purpose. My cat, Mini, a female of almost 2 years old, was a very beautiful and smart cat, but she was also very curious and adventurous. And she was a diva, but she was MY diva.

      One night in december, Mini didn't come back, but as it wasn't the first time she spent the night outside, so I didn't thought much of it. In the morning, still no sign of her, but she often didn't appear before noon came. On the evening of that day, when she still hadn't shown up, I started to fear the worst. I called for her, went outside with a flashlight, but nothing. Started looking on the web on what to do when one's cat is lost, and didn't found much but to ask the neighbors to check their backyards. So living in surburbia, I asked the two neighbors to the left and right of my house. Not those across the streets, nor behind the house since it's a park. No sign of her. So long story short, I did everything I could thought of : distributed flyers all over the neighborhood, plus the next two nearest ones, l paid a so-called pet psychic 90$ for nothing but crap, called an expert in animal rescue, spoke to a vetenarian technician, went to animal control to check their inventory, posted on facebook and in stores and finaly went 2 times a day, everyday, outside to look and call for her for 2 months. In march, our front neighbor across the street asked if we'd lost our cat (they were on holidays when I distributed my flyers). Mini had drowned in his pool. It was bitter sweet, because at least I could stop worrying what had happened, it's not knowing that was the worst. Today, she is burried in my backyard, where I can still talk to her everyday.

      So based on my experience, and nothing scientific or proven, let me share with you what you can do when your cat is lost:

      Knowing your cat's behavior, decide what is the best first step. And do it fast, don't wait.

      A scardy-cat? He could be hidden. Check the perimeter with his favorite treats or toy in hand, several times a day for 5-10 minutes at a time.

      An adventurer? For a female, ask the next two neighbors on every side to check their backyards. Check every nooks and crannies, and pool for that matter. Bring treats if used, or anything making noises she knows (dry food containers, bowls, food cans, etc.). For males, do the same but over six neighbors. And if you're shy, asks someone you know to accompany you. Think of your cat.

      A people lover? Post on your town and the one nearest Spotted pages, distribute flyers in your neighborhood streets and nearest stores. Don't use scotch tape on your neighbors doors, some are mentally disturbed, I just folded it up and slipped it between the door and the door frame. Contact your animal control services in your area, along with vetenarian clinics, to let them know or check on new arrivals.

      Keep on calling your cat from your house, to let them know where home is.

      All of the steps above should be done, you just have to decide in which order.

      Accidents happen. I received a call one night, a cat had been hit by a car, and the person thought it was my cat, from the flyer. Got in my car and sped to the location, only to find a guy with a dead cat in his arms, walking away from the scene. It was a only closeby neighbor taking the cat off the street so he wouldn't get roll over again or rot on the street. So a dead cat can disapear quickly.

      One last advice, again based on my experience, but three cats died in my neighbor's pool (he has 2 house cats, so I'd like to believe it's not on purpose). If only there was a piece of styrofoam large enough to help the cats off the water, they might have find a different ending.

      Don't give up just yet, be ready to invest a lot of time and energy, and your investment will eventually be rewarded. It's worth it all.

      I've had my two brother Kitties that were born across the street from 8 weeks old..so neighborhood is their birthplace. I taught them their names and a whistle from that time. Manny and Willy have two completely different personalities. Manny is a hunter and Willy likes to play with butterflies. They just turned 3 and have always used the dog door since I have dogs with fenced yard. They both have always come running, whether over the fence or under a bush when I whistle..which always comes with a treat. Suddenly Manny has disappeared off the face of the planet. I've done all the recommendations, and of course, noticed immediately in the morning something was wrong because he is a talker and always made his presence known every hour or so if I hadn't called him first. The yards are all connected and fenced so escaping a dog is easy..I started to worry it may have been a hawk or an owl but heard they don't carry a 10 to 15 lb animal far. if it was a car, I would have smelled death bcuz he wouldn't have gone far. I have posted pictures, FBooked, craigslist, article in paper, spoken to all neighbors..taken leads even tho they seemed outrageous..One night I walked the perimeter of my neighborhood 2miles square with a bullhorn giving him his whistle and calling his name and waiting for even one little meow... nothing. I've gone to the far off areas where people hav called and still nothing. I have started to feel terrible and regretful that I didn't put a gps on him. I didn't know that existed but now I wish i did. It's been 11 days without a whisper of a hint. I was told sometimes people take in cats thinking they are being helpful...If that is the case, they are torturing the family that is looking. His brother is beside himself. I pray he is OK and I hope if some do-gooder has him...will let him go. Some people think they are doing the right thing by keeping them. Well, if there are signs of abuse yes, but otherwise, NO..he is missed horribly. I can't think of anything but him and if I'm not working on getting him back I'm in a deep depression. Not all animals without a chip etc. are in need of possession. He has a whole family and a brother that miss him deeply. I just don't know what to do but as the old saying goes "If you love something set it free, if it comes back to you it is for you"

      One thing you might try is similar to hunting AND familiar to your cat : when you go out looking and call you may be moving too fadt. A lot of cats will sit in hiding (that survival mode ) but if you call him a few times the sit down on the curb or edge of the yard and just be quiet. Wait at least 15 minutes before moving......if your cat is nearby, and you are sitting quiet he might use that time to shift out of his hiding place and use you to protect him. It's worked enough times for me.....remember though, if you're quiet enough a different lost cat may move up to you! (Happened once to me and I remembered the. Lost cat poster...called them and enjoyed watching them reunited. He was 6 streets over, lost for 3 weeks! The quiet concept decided I might be friendly) but back to my idea...since I use f the quiet posture I started going out at night , sitting still and my cats will come over for a scratching and some share time...... and get acclimated to coming to me in the process. As with anything on the web your milage may vary

      our cat has been missing for 7 days we're really worried. I'm going to try the cat food idea it sounds good. But not holding out too much hope, there are so many cats and foxes in our area that I'm sure one of them will get to it before he does I really hope he turns up, thx for the advice

      I lost my cat (he's an indoor cat) a few days ago. He is an indoor cat and has bladder problems. I was worried sick. My stepdaughter send me a pin linking to this blog. Your post give me a lot of hope and last night I put out his little bowl with his food. This morning it was gone and when I called for him, he was calling back. 10 minutes later, he was back. He was hiding in our neighbour's garden and we haven't heard from or seen him for days until now. I am so happy and so grateful for this post! Thank you so much!

      I lost my cat 5 days ago. He is 7 months old and he is not neutered. I don't even know how he escaped, I suspect he jumped from our balcony that is at the first floor. I have been searching for him, calling his name, putting up posters in the neighbour and nothing yet. What worries me is that when i got him home he was 2 months old, a stray little kitten that was meowing for days outside my house for me to pet him, he even found a way to climb outside my window at 4am and meow like crazy so that i would go out! He has never left the house since and has only been to the front yard. I can't understand how a cat that meows all the time and wants hugs all the time escapes and stays away for almost a week :S I am so worried that something has happened to him but he is a very smart cat and i try not to lose hope..I hope he just wants to mate but I don't know if it's mating season as I haven't heard any other cats :S

      Here in the US, there is an organization called HomeAgain - www,homeagain.com, 888.HOMEAGAIN (Always looking for your pet). When my roommate and I adopted our cats from the MSPCA, we received a complimentary one year subscription and it costs $17-19 USD/year. The subscription includes keeping your current address and phone number on file as well as each individual cat's microchip number thereby making it much easier for you cat to be returned home if he/she is found and turned into Animal Control, the SPCA, Human Society or a vet as all of these resources are required to scan every lost animal that they find or is brought into them for a microchip. The microchip is no bigger than a grain of rice and it is injected/placed just under the skin between the cat's shoulder blades.You also receive a tag with with your animal's name, whether they are spayed, neutered or intact, sex and your home address and contact number so that anyone who finds your missing pet can contact you. YOu also receive a card that you can keep in your wallet that contains the above information as well as their birthdate - if known or a rough approximation - breed and color(s)/coloring, their microchip number and their vet's info - name of the vet's practice, the vet's name, the address and phone number of the vet. Even if your pet is a strictly indoor animal, having them microchipped (chipped) is always a good idea because you never know if your cat might be separated from you in an accident, emergency or disaster. Also make sure that your cat has their most current vaccine tags on their collar as well as this will also help in getting you and your 'baby' reunited.

      If you have lost your cat then every ten or even five minutes open the door and call for his or her name as soon as possible or else he will get lost and more far away and will not hear you. Yell loud and hard so your cat can hear you even if you or your cat is far away. When you are done yelling or shouting your cat's name go back to whatever you're doing and as I said come back at least ten or five minutes later. Comment me if this strategy works and you find your cat or kitten.-By Mary Shadbegian. maryshadbegian@gmail.com

      My cat has been missing since Saturday 15th March. Every evening im out looking for him. Our neighbor hood is covered in posters and iv hand delivered about 200 flyers. Facebook has been a great tool as i have a group and there and many people in my area who I have never met have joined and are spreading the work. After reading this i feel alot more positive we may see him again. He is very loved and i know everyone thinks it but he is the best cat ever. Thanks for this article as I was starting to give up hope but im going to remain positive.

      Thankfully we've never lost a cat for more than a half hour or so. Our cats are indoor cats but are aloud out in the backyard when we're home to keep an eye out. We've had a few who like to escape through cracks in the fence, though. We actually had a harder time with our dog (a little Yorkie) and had to search the neighborhood a few times for her! I feel for people who have had a missing cat. These are great tips! I'm not sure if you put this in here and I missed it, but it's also a good idea to call a local shelter in case your cat was turned in there. Most people probably do that, anyway. You can also call a shelter in nearby towns just in case they somehow wandered really far. We heard of a family who lived an hour away and somehow their dog made it to our local shelter. We're not sure if they were visiting town with their dog and he got lost or he just somehow got here...but you never know.

      YEAH^^ I found my cat on the 20th day. She has been hiding and a neighbour spotted her hideout and notified us. I was too worried that she'll die of thirst or hunger, she was dehydrated and lost much weight when we found her. Super happy to find her back. Yup, putting up notices is still the best way I guess.

      My cat has gone missing for the second time now. She is a skittish cat which makes me worry because if somebody tries to pick her up she might run away. The first time it seemed as if she couldn't find her way back because I found her just outside the complex. She ran away because I had just gotten a new kitten. This time she just disappeared but I'm keeping my hopes up its been 4 days now but thanks so much for the tips.

      My cat slipped out the door that my nephew left open while we were on a mini vacation at a resort yesterday morning. Unfortunately we had to come home and leave without her but we have a live trap set up and staff checking the area for her... We're also heading back tomorrow and Monday. Certainly not giving up hope but it's so hard to imagine a positive outcome from this. She's in an unfamiliar place, and she's probably terrified. My only hope is that she hasn't wandered and that she will stick close to the cabin we were in. I dumped out her kitty litter fairly close to it in the bushes and we have food and water set up for her so hopefully she'll follow that scent and stay close by... I'm absolutely beside myself with worry.

I last saw him at 6.30am that day - I have been told of a cat being hit by a car 2 hours later that same day, but the council assure me that wasn't him!! My 2 year old Burmese is missing him madly.... Please Help... Any info please call 07986861067.... Thanks!

      My cat ran away on the Fourth of July. This really helps me understand more as to why he is not home yet. We put up fliers the next day and sure enough we finally got a phone call from someone 6 days after he went missing. He told us they have seen him around and that they're trying to get him for us. Sure enough he has been a few streets down from our house. And the next morning we went to try to get him. We had his food out and we sat in the car waiting for him to go for the food. Once we saw him we called for him and instead of coming right to me , he ran away. And I was confused and scared what was wrong. But reading this have me a better understanding of how cats are. And I am confident we can get him. We are trying again tonight and will do the salmon thing... My advice is that determining on how your cat got out and why will most likely determine how far he has gone.

      We have only had are Cat for a few days.. We wanted to settle her in before we took her to Vets to have her checked out and Micro-chipped.. The previous owner was quick to get rid of her. So I can`t imagine the had her neutered.. She is a house cat, and we live on a busy road. I contacted our local council, and luckily she had not been picked up by the Highway control.. I have contacted my local newspaper, the Radio Station, all the vets in and out of my area, Cats protection, RSPCA. PDSA, and the Cats & Dogs homes near us.. If you live in Plymouth? and in the Devonport area and had see a petite long haired black cat with a green collar with a bell?? Could you contact Nikki on 07446498239.. I would be extremely grateful..

      I live in Kolkata, India. I have a pet female kitten. She wandered off for three days some time ago. When she returned at midnight she was ravenously hungry. What I did not know was that she was pregnant. After some time she delivered a single dead kitten. I nursed her back to health and subsequently she did not veture out at all. There are a dozen cats at home. The other cats, whether male or female, can't tolerate her because she keeps aloof and beat her up if they get an opportunity. Therefore I was all the more careful. She became her normal playful self. But very recently she was again in heat and began calling out for mates which attracted the other male cats at home. But she would run away from them. Then she began wandering off at night and returning in the early morning. She has now been gone for seven days now and I'm extremely worried. She has not responded to my calls.

      Update, I found my baby. It was amazing a little stray cat that I had been feeding led me straight to him. She actually ran in front of me when I came out to look for him and kept running in-front to make sure that I was following and when she reached his hiding spot (he was hiding in the bushes) she stopped and meowed and then my cat meowed too. This little cat was simply amazing, I am going to try to adopt her. But the advice on here was awesome, I bought strong flashlights to look in the bushes and went out after 12am when everything was silent, kept calling out his name.

      I got my daughter a cat..back in November 2011. He is an indoor-outdoor cat. We stay in a rural area and we are used to him coming in and out all day and even at night. He usually stays out all night and come home early in the morning like 5 or 6 am. Even when he stays in all night he wakes up someone with all the meowing. He isn't neutered and there are female cats around, so I know what he does. It is one girl cat that always hang around here and they kick it with one another. Maybe over a week and a half ago, he left and hasn't come back, no one has seen him at all. He has never stayed gone this long. Usually if I hadn't seen him in like 2 days or so, he WOULD come and get something to eat and leave again, but never this long. There are a lot of strays around here and he is the healthiest one with a home. Everyone knows my cat because he is the only "gray" cat around this area. I have asked some people and they tell me the same thing, that they haven't been seeing him either. I seen the little girl cat that he would be kicking it with, she was walking by my house and she meowed and ran up under my house and come out the other side and I went hurried up and went opened up the back door to see if my cat was around and she ran off from under my house fast and looked back. Like she was giving me a message or something. I have been thinking the worst...I really don't know what to do anymore.? Should I just give up?

      Good news, my little boy is back home now :) He was trapped in somebody's green house not far away from our house. I put up some posters this morning and put little photos of him through letter box in all houses in our area. I wrote under the photo to check garages and sheds as he might be locked in. I then got a phone call this evening from a lady, who saw this photo and went to check her green house and he was there :) He was a bit scared but is ok now. He was missing "only" 36 hours but it was the worst feeling I've ever had. Remember, don't give up!

He's never stayd out overnight :( I will try to put some food out for him tonight, maybe he'll come back. How do you cope with the stress?

      These are very useful tips. My cat slipped out not long ago during one of the coldest days this winter. I realised she was missing in the evening (my cats are hardly visible when the kids are up ;) I've printed out little posters and put them through the letterboxes in all the neighbouring houses (over a 100!) and then I walked around calling her name... and then... as it was freezing... I drove around the neighbourhood for an hour. I almost lost hope and thought she wouldn't survive (she's a tiny Burmese) but then, I decided to go through the back lanes one last time and I noticed her glaring eyes under one of the cars. I had to crawl underneath it to get her out she was so scared.. Fortunately, she has lost interest in the outside world now ;)

      Our cat is mainly an indoor cat, but will spend maybe an hour or two outside each day.. on Sunday (3rd Feb) he went out at about 7.00pm and when we went to let him back in as normal he wasn't there! Its now Wednesday 7th and still no sign of him. He never goes far normally, never more than 30 meters of our house.He is wearing his collar with out telephone number on, but nobody has called. Ive checked the roads around us and thankfully no roadkill! Ive put flyers through the doors of every house in our street. So far we had one text from someone who thought they saw him but when we visited the area they said we couldnt see him. Im hoping he is just lost and will eventually turn up. Hopefully nobody has taken him in as their own as he was wearing his collar! Im also hoping he hasnt ran away as we have just had a baby and I think he was feeling a bit put out as he hasnt had much attention the past couple of weeks (its our first child - its taken time to adjust!)Anyone got any tips?

      Losing your cat is indeed heart wrenching. We moved and my old cat disappeared. I was terrified that she had got away while we were bringing in the furniture. I walked the streets calling her for two days without a response. Then while doing laundry in the basement I heard a meow in the wall. She had found a hole and crawled into one of the basement walls. I almost cried with relief.

      My cat went missing on Monday the 31st of December. Yesterday I noticed that I haven't seen him in a couple days but I thought it was because I was on a trip away for new years for a few days and after that, maybe my mom and dad have been letting him in and out of the house... He is an indoor/outdoor cat, every time he would go outside he would always come home at least the next day... My dad doesn't like him inside the house so when my dad is home (which is not a lot because hes a truck driver) he only lets him inside to eat and then takes him out to the patio... well yesterday my dad left on his trip and today I woke up at 4 am and couldn't fall back asleep and randomly thought of the cat and got excited that he can be in the house as much as he wants again, so I went outside and called and called and called for him but he never came. An hour later I woke my little brother up and asked him if he has seen him lately and he said last time he seen him was NYE, I called my dad and he said he had seen him 5 days ago which is still a very long time and unlike him to be gone that long. I can't stop crying over him. He's the only pet I've ever had and I've had him since he was a few weeks old almost 5 years ago... (found him alone and helpless in our backyard) Its almost 2 am right now as I'm writing this and I have to be up for work in 4 hours... I don't know what to do.. my whole family is taking it to lightly too, its like no one wants to help...my friends don't get it either, i try to vent and they just tell me to calm down because hes "just a cat"... I just want my baby back. : ' ((( I posted ads online... does it matter how long the cat may be gone for if he is an indoor/outdoor cat? hes outside a lot so he wandered all over the place already... and is there any other way besides leaving food outside to try to get him back? (i find my neighbors cats in my patio all the time... so leaving food might be pointless because they are just going to eat it all)

      Me and my girl friend lost our cat 2 days ago right before New Years. He must have slipped out while we weren't looking. We didn't realize he was missing till the next day I'm assuming he was gone for at least 12hrs since any one last saw him. We checked our whole apt looking through our closet drawers behind our washing machine everywhere inside any were a cat might hide. He was no were to be found from there on we started looking around our complex up and down under dumpsters,cars,bushes.tress, we must have made at least 5 full rounds around our complex that day. We hoped to have found him by nightfall for fear of the fireworks that were going to be set off from New Years fire works. We were afraid he might go further away from the loud noises. After the fire works noise stopped I personally looked around to listen if I could hear him meowing. I had no luck but I didn't give up hope I went online that night looking for tips if there was anything I could do that I wasn't doing to help find him find his way home. There were a lot of inspirational stories out there and people who felt as hopeless as I did but never gave up. It helped a lot. My advice "The way you lose hope is when you decide to give up." i then proceeded to use some of the tips I learned an put treats out at the door,patio,and by our window,an a couple of used shirts for scent jus in case he was close enough and couldn't find his home. We didn't have much luck. My girlfriend and I shredded a couple of tears together and brain stormed what we could. We drove a 1 mile radius around our neighborhood very slowly stopping at areas we thought he might be. My girlfriend was embarrassed she didn't want people thinking we were criminals walking around looking under cars an such. I told her as long as keep calling him an I have these bag of treat in hand"shaking it" we should be fine I didn't want to leave any stone unturned and thinking later if we never found him maybe I should have called louder or looked under that car for fear what other people might think. I say do it. at least you know you did the best of your abilities to find him. We then walked around our complex at least 5 times searching the same spots same bushes same cars over an over again.that we looked before with no sign of him. We then called it a night an my girl friend went inside I on the other hand took my dog out to use the bathroom an decide to walk jus down the street jus hoping to gets glimpse of something anything. I must have been 4 apartment buildings down from the corner of my eye I saw something bolt it looked like a hare we have a lot of them here. But decided to check it out any way. As I got. Closer i realized it was our cat he was frightened out of his mind an didn't respond to his name in fear of him running I didn't move fast to him even though my heart was racing an wanting me to run to him an grab him. I slowly reached my hand out so he could sniff me an once I was able to get a good grip on him I did. Took him home my girlfriend was ecstatic. My advice never give up hope even when all hope seems lost Look.Look,Look around even if its the same spots. Cats move around and are great hiders you might not have seen him the first time or the second or third time but he's out there some were. You jus need to find him. I hope this helps people out there who have lost there cats an are still looking. Don't give up we found our cat he is now sound asleep in his bed. It been 2hrs since we found him. Thank you all for posting your experiences an things you faced when looking for your cat. It gave me HOPE..

      My cat climbed up to our roof yesterday night and now there is no sign of her anywhere. she's about two years. I m extremely worried. last time she climbed to different house's roofs and loudly meowed and was trying to jump to our house and I went to our neighbors at 3 am and saved her. This time it's totally different, I don't see her any where and people here will leave no such chance and take her with them. Local children have no idea where she is. I don't know what to do!!! I m very worried and I have also cried for my little baby. What do i do??? She's not on the roof or any where in the streets!

      for anyone with a smartphone i.e Android, IPhone, Friskies makes an app that calls your cat based on different sounds. canned food opening, dry food bag shaking, treats bag shaking, cat meows, bird tweets, bell. walking the neighborhood late at night playing this app on your phone may get your kitty home. carrying a bag of food or tapping a can with a spoon may also work. Its better at night so there's not a lot of background noise. Hope this helps.

      Thank you so much for your advice. We were devastated when our cat went missing for 48 hours and part of the torture was witnessing our 15 year old in agony. It was he who found your website. The idea of a cat getting 'spooked' and going into hiding close to home made sense and felt encouraging. It turned out to be true, too - our cat was in hiding in a bush two streets away, presumably waiting for it to be safe to return - or for us to find her. Thanks again.

      Thanks for the very nice and useful article. I had lost my kitten today, tried a lot searching for her around. But got too pessimistic and imagined so many bad things happening to her due to stray dogs.. Then I panicked and gave up, thinking that she is too young to survive so long in the cruel world outside. But later I read your article, buckled up and went on a search for her taking the help of a few neighbors.. I was so lucky! we found her hiding on the terrace of a neighbor, looking dehydrated and too scared. Thanks a millions to you and my search partners.. Our baby girl is back to home and sleeping sound and safely now! :)

      Our cat had been missing since wedensdat 5th of decenber. Until tonight we didn't know were she was until we started putting posters through letters boxes. One of he people came to our house and told us that he had seen our cat fighting with another cat. So we think that this cat she has been fighting with has been marking its territory around were we live. But thanks to your advice at least we know that she is in the area.

      @julie-denneny: Sorry to hear your cat's missing. The advice in the article above is excellent, but if you want more details on HOW to search and what you can be doing, you can get a Search Guide for How to find lost cats on my website LostcatFinder.com

      Great article and advice! I am a professional Cat Detective in Austin (trained by Kat Albrecht) and would like to suggest the use of wildlife cameras with food as bait. You can find out if your cat is in the area, and also if there are coyotes around, too. They are a key piece of equipment in our lost cat searches lately. I've put together an ebook Guide on advice and steps to Find a Lost Cat which is available for instant download on my website: www.lostcatfinder.com.

      @Mlydiac: Did you find your cat eventually? Mine has been gone a week and has never gone far before.

      Thanks to your tips, we were able to find our missing kitty late last night. It was the third night since she had disappeared, and the temperature had been below freezing each night. You were right about not giving up looking for her! We weren't expecting a happy ending given the circumstances, but we are so thankful to have her safely home with us.

      Thank you so much for this article. My 12 year old cat (I got him when I was 10!) has been missing for a week and I'm heartbroken. I thought that I had done very thing I could and was beginning to accept that something must have happened to him. Not only have you given me more hope, but I found more things to try! I can't thank you enough. :-)

      Thank you for this. Does anyone have any tips for when you lose a cat in a mountainous area? Our house is quite remote and I'm concerned about predators (fox, coyote, owl, etc).

      Our "baby" has gone missing. After reading your article I feel so much better and just put some fish out! I nearly gave up looking, thank you.
