Hi I live in Ajax , I lost my Male cat he answers to bubba boy or momma boy
He is mostly black with white chest almost looks like he is wearing boots.
He is fixed. He does not have a collar on as he hates it he wouldn't move with it on and i left it on for hours. He is so loving and deeply missed. We live in the area of slater and agate road. If you see him plz let me know my daughter is lost without him and so am I. It would be greatly appreciated. We lost him on March 27, 2011 I believe in the morning he got out when my son left for work. We all miss him!!

Sue,I am very sorry,I am sure you are frantic,as I know I would be.

Did you do the usual things,like missing posters,calling or better yet,go to shelters and check for yourself.
Go out after dark with a flashlight,cats eyes will as you know show,if he's hiding somewhere in the bushes.
Ask your neighbors to check garages,sheds etc..look up in trees.

What else? Well,you should leave something of his or something that has your smell,outside in a carrier or crate+his favorite food.
Usually a scared kitty does not go very far from home,maybe a couple of houses away,so please be vigilant,don't give up on him.
Good Luck!!:goodvibes::fingerscr:pray:

Thanks so much for the tips I have tried most of them. Resorting to posting posters on every post on the streets around me tomorrow. The biggest problem I have right now is the strays that threatened him at the window. I believe he was trying to show them this was his home. As they have sprayed everywhere.
He never was an outdoor cat. I don't believe he was able to spray himself around the outside. I've put his fav. chair outside so he could smell it. Hoping that he will find his back that way. As well as other items. We also have dogs all around us. I will never give up on him. I also will not stop looking. Again thank you!!!

Sue,it sounds like a pretty scary place for an in-door cat,not used to other cats and dogs,he has more than likely found a safe place to hide,afraid to venture out..:(
Look in any place,where you think he could be hiding,bringing some smelly food or treats..please give us an update..

I know here,our Humane Society pics up cats having been killed on the road,maybe yours does too,it's terrible to think of,but just to make sure..

So sorry you are missing your kitty :grouphug:

Indoor only kitties do not venture far from home unless they have been chased. They normally find a hiding spot and can stay there for days, even weeks, only venturing out very late at night or early morning. He may even be close enough to hear you calling, but won't come out of hiding. They are funny creatures when they are scared.

Have you tried going out at 3 or 4 in the morning with a flashlight to look for the reflection of his eyes under decks, in thick brush, etc. etc.?

Exactly or approximately how far can he go? I just put flyers in every mailbox on the street behind me. Please pray this works. I thank you all for your suggestions. I will keep you all posted on my progress.

He could go for miles if he wanted to, but more reasonable would be within a 2km radius. I still think he isn't far, just too scared to come out, or somebody brought him into their home.

My parents had a cat living under their deck for 5 days, who was an indoor only kitty that got out when visitors came to the door . The cat lived a few doors down and wouldn't come out when the owners called it during the day. My parents saw it through their basement window at 4AM and later found it under their deck. That's why I think it is important to look for your kitty at that time of day with a flashlight to peer under decks and to be able to hear if your kitty does let out a tiny mew when you call it.

I had one of my kitties give me a scare a couple of summers ago, when DH lost sight of him, for hours we looked for him, calling his name. He ended up being only feet away from our property in 3 feet long grass. Luckily I heard a tiny mew when I was only standing a foot away from him, he was so scared that he wouldn't come out of hiding even when I was a foot away calling him and that is so far from his normal character. Even when I parted the grass, he was crunched down, back to me, and would barely look at me. And this is a kitty that has outside (supervised of course) time and was only 50 feet from his favourite hunting spot. Kitties are funny creatures when they are scared.

Yes, please keep us updated, and GOOD LUCK :grouphug::grouphug: :goodvibes: :pray: :fingerscr
