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 &

please make sure you ask your neighbours to look inside their sheds, garages, pools, etc....with the heat in the last few days, cats want to find shade....the best time to look for your kitty is at dawn or after dark...when all is quiet...if he is injured he will stay in hiding until he feels safe from predators...I live in Pointe Claire , but know your area well...let me know if you need help. Good luck

I would bring a stool sample so it can be tested for worms. You never know what Sam ate when he was lost.

Brenda, I hope you consider sticking around as a member of the board. We'd love to see more pics of your kitty once he's back to health. Good luck at the vet's.
