Customer Question

I have a 4 year old mixed breed cat, partly maine coon. I adopted him and he was found outdoors. He pushed out the front door on August 11 and hasn't been back.
I have received many calls and someone actually saw him eating his food on my sidewalk about 4 days after he escapaed.
Should I give up hope on him? He is chipped and fixed
Looking for insight and hope.. :-)

I am so sorry to hear about your kitty. I would never give up hope! There is always a chance he will return or someone will find him, especially if he is chipped. Any sightings recently?

Not recently

I'm sorry. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you. I recently found a dog that the owners thought they would never see again. I hope the same happens with your kitty.
