Silver is going missing again. This time it seems to be a bit more serious. He is going out and, we think, visiting other people although coming home regularly for supper, or breakfast – but he doesn’t stay (grrrr). I may be over reacting but, after losing Dash, I am being very careful and every day I ‘log in’ every cat in the household’.

Please, don’t tell me he should be an indoor cat, this is :-

  1. Not helpful – All of our cats are indoor/outdoor, as are most cats in New Zealand.
  2. Not the USA – our predators are more limited.
  3. I do not mean to be disrespectful – just transparent.

What we have done so far :

  • Microchipped Silver (we have his full documentation from his adoption through to today + insurance)
  • He wears a collar with a brand new tag on it
  • Circulated the initial area we think he may be visiting, and more postcards are being printed for further afield.
  • Now awaiting any response before spreading our net further. It is daytime and people may not be home to either let him out, or check their mail boxes.

Miranda, Harvey and Phoebe

      A friend on FB says her cat wandered but was not staying with anyone else. That is another option Miss Savannah.

    Hey Silver! You hear me? COME HOME! Your peeps are worried ’bout you.

    You know, Nosy-Neighbour-Cat once spent TWO WHOLE WEEKS in our basement. His peeps weren’t too worried as they figured he was safe and sound over here. I, on the other paw, was not amused.

    this may be a long shot, but it is a thought. Is there any way you could slap a collar camera on him, and document where he goes?

      Skye, he visits home regularly but has started to stay out overnight sometimes – hence our disquiet.

    You may want to consider an ID tattoo the next time he goes in for a dental cleaning. Just a thought.
