Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.

Ask Your Own Cat Question

I am so sorry to hear Chapi is missing.

Where do you live; is it a rural area or suburban; what part of the country?

There are many reasons a cat goes missing: trapped somewhere, hit by a car, picked up as a "stray" by some well meaning person.

Ask Your Own Cat Question

I had a cat missing for 9 days come home; he was thin and hungry and had probably been trapped somewhere like someone's garage. Cats that go outside are at risk from cars and predators, depending where you live.

Have you gone door to door in your neighborhood? Put up flyers in your neighborhood and at the veterinarian offices in your area? Contacted your local shelter to see if animal control picked him up?

Ask Your Own Cat Question

I hope you find him. Please let me know if this is helpful and what other questions I can answer.

The response from the Expert literally saved my cat's life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart -- I will recommend all of my friends to you!!!

LuciaRincon, Georgia

I will use your service again. I was very pleased with the response and the fact that you have a low cost option so that those of us on fixed income can have questions answered. I will also recommend you to others.

KarenJackson Heights, NY

You helped us to come to what we believe is a better next step in Jack's treatment, and hopefully have saved us $800!! Thanks again!

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
