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

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, schools, pet supply stores, grocery stores, bus stops, vets & all animal shelters in the area that will help garner attention that this kitty has a home who wants him back

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.

Good luck &

He's a gorgeous kitty, gray owl! I hope you're reunited soon!

Please don't give up on your kitty. Sometimes it takes months but they often do come back. Put out a fresh shirt regularly (fresh as in freshly dirty and stinky), and keep putting up posters. Also remember to go regularly to the spca and animal shelters to check. Just because he wasn't there yesterday doesn't mean he won't be there tomorrow. Have faith.

Thanks so much for the kind words of support I'm leaving Ronnie"s winnie chair outside on the patio tonight (one of those kids' plush chairs-he loves it) He is so nervous --I'm really worried

Have you been looking for him during the night between midnight & 5am? That may be the only time he will make himself known. During the day, he may hear you calling, but be too afraid to answer you as their instinct is to hide and be quiet.

My parents had an indoor only cat who lived only 2 doors down that got outside and hid under their deck for 5 days. He didn't respond to his owners calls, nor could they find them (their deck was only had about a foot of clearance over the ground). My mother was in basement to watch some TV at 4 AM and saw him peak his head out to look into the basement window.

Good luck!
