Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, and welcome!My name is XXXXX XXXXX it will be my pleasure to assist you today.My apologies that it took so long for you to receive an answer; different experts are online at various times and I recently logged in and read your question.I'm so sorry to hear that Capu is missing. You have done all the right things, but in addition, I would post pictures with your details and info in local vet offices, call the local animal shelters and tell them to be on the lookout for her if she is brought in, and call animal control and ask if they have picked up any 'stray's in the past few days matching her description. In addition, walk through all the areas you have every day, at dawn and dusk (when it's most quiet) and shake a container of dry cat food, calling her name. It's good you're looking under bushes and in wooded areas, because she may be hiding out there.It does make sense that the changes on the patio (her territory) and hustle/bustle of all your sister's things and your sister's cat, caused Capu to become very anxious and feel she was losing her territory to another feline and this may have been the reason she has not yet returned. It's also possible that she wandered farther than usual and is lost and can't find her way home. Put your fliers up on trees and in store windows in your neighborhood and ask kids if they've seen her. Neighborhood kids can be a great source of information when it comes to finding lost pets. I've had personal experience with this.I do hope your Capu returns home safely and please keep me posted on how things are going. Thanks!When she comes home, use Feliway, a calming cat pheromone that comes in a spray and plug in diffuser, to help her calm down and feel less stressed. Also, try to keep the two cats separated so she doesn't experience any more anxiety at this time. Here is more information about Feliway To help her de-stress, you can also try a nurtureCALM collar which contains cat-appeasing pheromones as well. Here is more information: CLICKMy best thoughts and prayers are with you that your Capu will return very soon, and in good condition!
I am still searching for my cat =(
Something that I forgot to mention is that her front left tooth was somewhat loose. I took her to the vet January, where the Doctor said it should be taken care of in the near future. She became hesitant when he forcefully pushed her tooth; but other than that, she has been eating and drinking normally.
I began reading about cats that wander off to pass when they are ill. Could the tooth be a reason is she did run away to pass?
She recently found 2 spots on dirt under the trees that she loves to hang out and I always found her relaxing and just enjoying the day. I also read that cats that run off to pass would go near the area in a hidden spot; yet I have looked under every tree around my area. Any suggestions?
