LOST CAT

Our cat Miles has gone missing since Friday, October 28. He is a male, Orange Short haired tabby and is neutered . He was wearing a red collar at the time. He is very friendly and loving and we miss him dearly. If anyone has seen him around the Mearns/Sprucewood/Madden Place area or has picked him up, please call us on 905-623-7277.
Thank you

If you can put his litterbox and/or a worn but unwashed t shirt or pair of smelly shoes of yours out on the deck this may help lead him home :fingerscr

Go around the neighbourhood at dusk/dawn calling him, rattling a treat container or tap a spoon on his dish or tin of food. Bring a flashlight to pick up the shine off his eyes from under cars/decks/bushes or up trees.

If you can poster the neighbourhood, plus leave one w/ local businesses, pet supply stores, grocery stores, vets & all animal shelters in the area that will help garner attention that this kitty has a home who wants him back

This is a scary time of year with lots of loud bangs since people are setting off fireworks at all hours, be sure to poster the surrounding areas as the noise may scare him farther away than you think he may be. Again check frequently with all animal shelters.

Thanks so much for that. I left his cat bed outside last night, but nothing, I will put out his litter box today and see if that helps. We have put posters all over the neighourbhood and asked our neighbours if they have seen him. Also called the local shelter.... all we can do now is hope for his safe return.

Please visit the animal shelters in person often times the shelters are understaffed/over worked with so many animals/requests etc they may not have the time to personally look into each phone call or an emergency/something comes up in the meantime & the request gets overlooked.

Going in person means you can visit & identify the cat right away, if an animal comes in terrified it may act out of character & be labeled as sick or a feral and not be placed with the general population please ask to see these areas as well.

Great idea, i will go in this afternoon, I have called every day but you are right, they are probably under staffed to do a proper check, where i can identify immediately. Will keep you posted.
