My male cat not neutered has been gone almost 7days up here…

Customer Question
My male cat not...

My male cat not neutered has been gone almost 7days up here in wyoming. Snow storms and temps near zero im worried sick about him. Ive called the humane society metro animal shelter have filled out missing pet reports and went searching the neighborhood where i got a message saying someone spotted him. Still nothing. I live maybe a mile from wher he was "spotted" last. He has a very full long coat. But like i said its been snowing with temps in single digits. Just wondering if YOU honestly think hes ok?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the cat?

No thats about it. Thank you.

Ok. I grew up in Minnesota where the temps get ridiculousness low.

I honestly think that there is hope. These pets surprise me every day as far as what they can handle and withstand. There have been so many situations where I though a pet wouldn't survive and they did. Plus, you don't know where he might be going. Maybe he found a warm place to rest away from the elements.

We had outdoor cats when I was a kid growing up and many of them survived outside and found places to get shelter.

I know you are so worried as I would be. It is such a tough situation and it is out of your control. You are doing the right thing by having people watch out for him. Pets have been gone longer and have returned home. I will keep you in my thoughts during this time, hoping for his safety return.
