I've put the scratching post and a cardboard box with a flap hanging down on the front porch with an old T shirt of mine stuffed with a little pillow.
I had been putting food out only to realize I had a little mouse stealing it and giving me false hope it was actually Jack. Watched the mouse for five minutes last night make his was back to the bowl for munches.
I keep have a daily ritual of checking all the website for the local HS but nothing and have put flyers in all the boxes of my local neighbours last week.
I can't help but keep an eye out for my boy but must admit I'm losing hope ....
