Default Zen Is Missing

Please keep him and us in your thoughts. Sometime in the past 12 hours Zen has snuck outside. He is not an outdoor cat, though he is microchipped and does have all his shots. He has snuck out a few times in the past but has always shown up when breakfast is served. I have been out mulitple times calling him and shaking his food. Nothing. Sheena has even done a search for him and nothing. She is trained to find him when he is hiding around the house in his various spots. If he is not back by morning we will be calling the shelters, and posting ads up. This is not like him at all. And with the cold weather I am very worried about warm car engines and antifreeze.

THanks. Doug walked the alley when he got home for lunch. Talked to a few neighbours too and they are going to be on the look out as well. He is such a friendly cat that someone could easily just take him home and keep him. I am worried sick. This waiting sucks. The hardest part is we don't know when he snuck out. Whether he snuck out when the dogs were taken for their last potty at midnight last night, or when Doug took them out first thing this morning or when he left for work. With him being blind in one eye he doesn't always see when Zen is planning to sneak out and he feels awful about it. I have told him it is not his fault but he still feels bad.

I'm so sorry. That is so worrying. My neighbor's young cat disappeared a few weeks ago. I heard coyotes yipping in the field behind my house and feared the worst. Then last night, she said that the cat came back...was hanging out at someone else's house. He came home and they let him out to pee and he's again disappeared. Hopefully, your guy will show up again too. They often do, even after quite a while. Vibes being sent.

Thanks you guys. I cried when Doug came home. Many years ago(about 15yrs ago) one of my cats got poisoned. He died under someones porch. At that time I was ok with letting a cat out during the day thinking that was "normal" and safe. Ever since that day I stopped allowing my cats outside without a leash.

For those who don't know here is what Zen looks like:

This was taken for our Holiday Cards




Zen is about a year and a half now. He and Luna are the best of playmates. Luna has been looking all over the house for him because they always have an hour of morning "catch me if you can" and then wrestle play session.

Also sending vibes that he comes back! This site might have some tips for you, as well:

http://www.missingpetpartnership.org/recoverytips.php

They have a section on lost cat behavior that's very good.

Good luck, hope he comes home soon!

Thanks. Checking the link now. He is microchipped(so glad we did that, Doug didn't see the reason too since he was an indoor cat and this is exactly why I told him we had too. Just in case). So if anyone takes him to a vet, takes him to a shelter or rescue and he is scanned our info is there. He is also neutered too. Sorry for rambling. I am just so stressed right now.
