:( My Nickie who was on her leash this morning, like every other morning got off it. My neighbor saw her near the rode but never thought of calling me. :(
She has now been gone for 7 hours and I have walked all over calling her name. She is 16 years old and she was rescued when she was two weeks old and now she is gone. If anyone lives in Pointe Claire near John Rennie High school please let me know...a very long shot but :shrug:. I have already put out poster and talked to all my neighbors....

well its been over 12 hours and she has not come back. Now I fear the worst. She is not a "scared" kind of cat. She will walk up to anyone or any dog...its what she is use to. She thinks herself a dog.
I saved her 16 years ago from sure death. The vet never gave her a chance so he let me take her home and have her die in my arms. She was a fighter and now she's gone. She cheated death so many times and now she'll be outside all by herself...in an area that she is not familiar with, not street smart at all. She could outsmart a bear and cougar, but never a car...she really has no idea what they are all about.
This is so hard, my little Nickie is gone. :(

I am so sorry cpietra. :grouphug: Have you got your trap available that you can set with her favourite foods? Have you gone out with a treat bag now that it's quiet to see if she will show up? How about a flashlight to check the trees and bushes?
I feel so bad for you. I will keep praying for her until we hear different. :goodvibes::fingerscr:pray::grouphug:

Don't give up hope that she'll come home to you! I know how hard it is - my Scout has been missing 4 weeks tomorrow - and it is like a full time job looking for her. But I believe she'll come back - and I refuse to allow myself to think anything else. There are some great tips on the first two blog posts under lost and found on this forum. Check shelters daily. Good luck!!!

I will hit the homes again. I put up posters two hours after she went missing and today i will be going door to door giving everyone a poster.

This is so not like her... she thinks she's a dog and may follow someone or another dog...that is why she was on a leash..she has gotten of another time but I caught her..I wasn't so lucky this time...I will think positive, but this is so not like her...she would never ever not come back, unless she's hurt:(
Well I have all the dog walkers looking out for her as well. we will see:shrug:


thank you for all your hopes and positive thoughts

SHE IS A GRAY AND HER TAIL LOOKS LIKE IT BELONGS TO A SQUIRREL.

I was thinking the same thing too, chico. She is such a pretty girl and being so friendly, anybody would fall in love with her.

Chico, I can't describe just how i feel. It is so surreal. This is my baby. She has been through thick and thin and I can't get over the fact that she is not on her favorite chair. I haven;t slept thinking the worse and hoping for the the best.
What makes it worse is that she had a runny nose for the past few years and we were thinking allergies, so she may not even have a good scent to come home with.
My other fear is that my neighbour even though I have asked him if he has seen her usually traps squirrels and relocates them...and that can also be cats which he does not really like. If he dumped her somewhere far I will never see her again.
This is so not how I thought she would die. All my cats have been cremated and her little body is somewhere and I don't know how to fix this...
So right now I am heart broken and at a loss...

Just wandered by this forum tonight while looking for side effects of metacam (it came up in a search). While browsing saw your post and had to respond. Our 7 year old indoor rescue kitty went out the dog door (she's never done that in three years) and was gone a week before I heard her meowing outside our bedroom window one night. Keep the faith! As soon as she came back I put a breakaway collar with tags on her and am considering a microchip. One of the tips I got while looking for her was to let the mailperson know so he/she can keep an eye out. Don't know if anybody has mentioned that. Good luck - I'll hope for a positive outcome!!

cpietra,a mailperson is a good idea,if he likes cats.

There is one here,I laugh every time I see him across the street(townhouse-complex)he always has 2-4 cats following him and he always pets them and gives them treats/food.
One day I am hoping to give him a hug...

I know you will never give up on Nickie,keep your spirit up MF:grouphug:

Just to let you know, that my mailman was told and given a poster as well....but I also want you to know that at 10:46 am this morning I got a call from a lady telling me that she lost a dog she was babysitting and has been looking at the SPCA website everyday. Yesterday she said that she saw a cat that look just like Nickie...so I Of course went on the site and she looked a lot like Nickie, so I called and asked them to call her by name....and yup it was her

NICKIE IS HOME...SHE SPENT THREE DAYS AT THE SPCA. SHE WAS FOUND ON THE INTERSECTION OF ST. JEAN AND DOUGLAS SHAND...THE BUSIEST INTERSECTION IN THE AREA. SHE WOULD NEVER HAVE MADE IT ACROSS IF IT WERE NOT FOR A MAN HOW SCOOPED HER UP AND TOOK HER TO THE SPCA

THANK YOU TO YOU ALL WHO NEVER MADE ME LOSE HOPE.

SHE IS ACTUALLY NOT TOO THRILLED TO BE HOME...I THINK SHE FINALLY REMEMBERED WHY SHE LEFT...THE 6 KITTENS AN MOM THAT I AM FOSTERING...I THINK I MAY NEED TO REHOME THEM..I DO NOT WANT NICKIE TO FEEL ANY STRESS....SO IF ANYONE WANTS TO FOSTER A MOMMY AND 6 KITTENS...LET ME KNOW. STERI-ANIMAL WILL FOOT THE BILL FOR EVERYTHING. THEY ARE OVERWHELMED WITH CATS AND THEY DON'T HAVE ANY FOSTER HOMES LEFT....

AS I TYPE THIS NICKIE IS HISSING AT THEM ALL AND TRYING TO FIND A WAY OUT AGAIN....I THINK THIS SIX DAY DISAPPEARANCE WAS STAGED BY HER AND SHE ACTUALLY SIS NOT WANT TO COME HOME:(:rolleyes::shrug:

So glad that Nickie is hope safe and sound (albeit unhappy). Is there no way that you could put mom and kitties out in the garage or something to make it easier for Nickie? Good luck with maybe finding another foster for them.

Awe Cpietra I am sorry your going through this! but gotta say if she was at the SPCA for 3 days who knows what she ate! poor gal! can you confine her to a bathroom or cage for a bit? she must be used to a cage if she was at the shelter? plus maybe she wont think about Momma and the babies if she cant see them! a rest of sorts! :thumbs up

cpietra,i had awful thoughts about your neighbor trapping her and dumping her far away,I am very,very happy she's back home.
Too bad you cannot thank the man who scooped her up,he probably saved her life.

The problem you are having now with her,the same would happen to me,if I had strange cats in the house,mine would have a pee-fest in protest.
I hope someone is able to take that little family for you:fingerscr

Thanks for all your thoughts guys, I need to take her to the vets for a whole look through. She is still hissing and almost swatted a kitten to the other end of the room.
This morning she threw up blood after I gave her the doxycycline for her "cold".., is this a side affect? If anyone knows? I will have to ask the vet. She is on .27 twice a day.:shrug:
