Hi, cmonmiracle. Glad you found us, though I wish it were under happier circumstances.

This thread has some advice that you might find helpful: Tips to help find your lost cat.

I hope you're reunited with Ginny soon!

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

Go around the neighbourhood at dusk/dawn calling her, rattling a treat container or tap a spoon on her dish or tin of food. Bring a flashlight to pick up the shine off her 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 her 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 &

Thanks for the advice! One of my posters worked and I am currently working on a lead. Hopefully it's my kitty and she'll be home safely soon.

Talking

Thank you for the advice to walk around at 4 AM. There she was, walking around at the end of my street! She eventually let me approach her with some treats and I was able to scoop her up and take her home.
