Depends on the kind of escape. Just putting a 'familiar' box/carrier at the spot of the escape would have worked the next day.

 

If you had kept the cat indoors for a week at its new home it can find its way 'home'. Check the previous home as well.

 

I had a cat disappear for a couple of months, believed it 'stowed away' in a friends vehicle (who lived in the next town). He came home (skinny) with his paws swollen three months later.

 

At least you have an idea that it was not 'taken' by a testing lab.

Also, check the animal shelter, and homes in the neighborhood of the escape.

Put up Wanted lost animal Posters in the area including the supermarkets and other stores.

 

I don't like your second paragraph, it implies if not saying outright, that you don't really want the cat back... :(

Adding to what weasel suggested: the only thing I can advise you to do (if you haven't already) is to make sure you report it to your local vets. I remember a few years back, my brother and I were having a drunken night at his place, and when we got up to go get some breakfast the next morning, there was this random dog lying, shivering outside my brothers front door. 

 

So not really knowing what the hell to do, we took it down to our local vets, where if I remember correctly, were told they couldn't take it in at the time for some reason, to which my brother offered to look after it for a while. Low and behold, a few hours later he got the phone call from the vets saying the owner was down there waiting to be reunited with their dog, and reunited they were.

Report it to the media.

 

I once reported a parrot of mine was lost and it was all on the news. I got reported back that it got KIA.

Did your kitty have a collar on with your name/phone number engraved in it?? 

 

And like what the others said above, put leaflets up and maybe go around the spot where the kitty left the vehicle with a packet of cat food. :^:

I'd go to the woods where the cat escaped with a can of tuna and a pet carrier. Walk around and look for a water source and park yourself there for a few hours if it's isolated. Open the can, call the cat's name, and wait. If there are homes nearby you should check around there, especially homes that leave their garages open or have cats of their own.

In my experience indoor cats rarely want to be outdoor cats. It's probably looking for a place to stay if it hasn't found one already. And once they find easy food and water they tend to stay nearby.

Call CNN. Just make sure to tell them this cat is somehow related to Justin Bieber. That should pique their interests.

It's probably already dead bro, RIP.

Why say that?

 

reported the troll for that. this guy is a joke.

 

Anyway, me and my GF have four cats at the moment (and a 9month old baby boy who loves them) <3

 

One of our cats (ALFIE)  is a NON- NEUTERED male.  He is nearly 3 now and goes out for periods of about 3 months at a time. He comes home for a few days to eat and sleep and get well rested before he goes out again to mate his balls off.  He stays out in rain, thunder, snow and all other weather patterns and just does not come home until HE is ready to.  Cats are really wild in their heads and live off instinct. I bet your cat will come home soon, hungry and wet or covered in bits of foliage. Ours likes to come home with cuts and scratches. He is one hell of a fighter and has recently acquired a split ear from fighting...the silly animal :p

 

Your cat will be fine, Just be sure to scan the area with a pack of treats and shake them and call the cats name.  Yes people will look weird at you but who cares on the safe return of your cat.

 

good luck :) you wont need it I bet.

Sounds like you may need to get a new cat.

I have a recommendation for your new cat; transport it in a carrier.

Doesn't your vet require cats to be in carriers when in the waiting room?

You might want to get that cat neutered, I had a cat that used to go out for weeks until he never came back.

 

So my family then got a new cat and he was also starting stay out for nights and eventually came home neutered and with his ear tipped, I guess he was captured and mistook for a stray. Now he comes home every night. I don't see why my family was so against getting a cat neutered as they didn't didn't even have the decency to take the old cat to the vet because of his severe injuries. So in short, I'd recommend you get you cat neutered if you don't want to wonder if he's dead everyday or before someone else does it and also tips your cat's ear.

 

As for the OP: I've heard strange stories of cats getting lost and coming back home, albeit with bloody paws but why didn't you put your cat in a cage in the first place?

Don't take a cat, in a car, without a carrier. Why were you taking it to the vet? was it very sick?

 

If it's really that far away, I don't know if there's much chance of him returning on his own. You might get lucky but not without trying. Call local vets / shelters to see if he was picked up, go back to the area and call him for a few hours, put up posters.

 

I'd hate to be in your situation, I'd rather know what happened to them to get that closure. Hopefully he isn't hurt or in a bad place, he may get picked up or taken in by someone.

yeah thats true about the carrier, if i take any of my cats into my car with no carrier they'll just meow and try to escape like crazy 

 

 

BTW, I've heard that if something bad happens to your cat, it was supposed to happen to you, but he protects you somehow. I believe that.

I would like to know how and where he was recovered. Also, did the Vet check him out.
