Cats/lost cat


we saved a cat from being put to sleep back in june 08. Hes been microchiiped and declawed. How long will cats stay lost? We have signs and ads in paper and online. We live in a wetland area with lots of trees. We miss him any hope. Lost in Tacoma

there is always hope. Cats have been known to go missing for weeks even months and in some rare cases even years.

If they are not neutered then they could be off looking for a mate, if they are they could simply be out there exploring the territory. It has been known for cats to patrol a 1 mile radius territory.

Please see my page about lost cats, i'm sure you are doing every thing you can but don't loss hope. Keep calling him, leaving some food out and you can even leave something of his or yours outside that will have your scent on.

here is my web page

best wishes and I hope he comes home soon
