Have you had a cat just vanish?

berk
11 years ago

My beautiful black cat, Midnight just vanished .

I have had her for almost 2 years. She was a stray cat that appeared on my deck on evening and became part of our family real fast. Once she trusted us and would come in the house we found out she was expecting too. We turned her into a pet real fast and she was a loving cat in no time. She had 6 babies and we found homes for all but one and I kept her. We got her and her kitten both fixed.

She always wantes out in the morning and would come back home every couple hours to eat and come in and be loved on and stay for awhile and at night she would always be home between 6-7 for the night. Then a week ago Monday she was out side at 10 am and I haven't seen her since. We live in the country and I have looked every where for her and called and called and ask all the neighbors and no one has seen her. I haven't seen any voltures anyplace eiher. Has anyone had a cat dissapear like this and show back up? I am just heart broken and can't give up hope on her returning home. She was such a joy to us.

Thanks for reading this and I hope someone has some encourging words for me.

    So all of y’all are saying how your cat ran away. here’s my story. I adopted 2 cats yesterday. One was a mama cat who was taken from her babies. And the other was a kitten. Both of these came from a shelter. Well the next morning when I woke up. The mama cat was nowhere to be found and no one has opened a door that night period. I’ve looked all day and flipped this house upside down and still no cat. the baby is still here but not the mama one. I’m so confused

    Our cat has crawled up inside the box springs of the bed (shredding the fabric to get there). I’m sure you have looked in the tops of closets, under sofa, etc. good luck.

    barn cat just had kittens--questions!!!

    Q

    Comments (12)
    OUr kittens are 3 weeks now and doing very well. They are with the mom in a back entry way (3 doors: to house, to garage and to outdoors). We don't have a barn (on our wish list) nor do we have any pet doors so they are either in or out. How/when should I try putting them in the yard? We have some pens around the chicken coop (could keep the chickens out) so that's an idea for during the day but there isn't a shelter in the pen so I'd bring them all in at night. Mom uses the litter box and I want her to teach the kittens to so would I put a litter box in the pen too? Also, when will they need kitten food? I handle them often--they let me know when they want to go back to mom. Oh--a couple of times when I've left the door to the house open, mom has carried kittens into the house into the back of a closet. I'm guessing HER long term goal is to move the family in with us!

    Cat5e & Cat6 to whole house or just Cat5e?

    Q

    Comments (5)
    Cat6 is not that difficult to terminate. It is somewhat more demanding than cat5e, but I would not trust someone who can't terminate cat6 to do my cabling anyway. I always have the same answer to questions like this: would you rather install cat6 and 10 years later realize you didn't need it, or install cat5e and wish you had cat6? Install more than you think you need during construction, unless it's cost prohibitive. In this case (and indeed in most cases), the incremental cost of cat6 is minuscule, because most of the cost is labor rather than materials (and labor is nearly the same for cat6). In most current applications it does not make a difference, but it does in some, and there may be more in the future. It is so much easier to run cable while the walls are open, that IMHO it's a complete no-brainer to "over-spec" a little bit to avoid regret and having to tear things up in the future. I've been through the project of adding cable to an existing home, and it is not fun. It involved literally hundreds of holes in drywall, all of which needed to be patched, texture matched and painted (not to mention the hours upon hours of labor I had to pay for the guys to fish cable through finished spaces).

    My Cat Just Had A Violent Seizure

    Q

    if he's dehydrated, you can take a syringe (or a turkey baster? don't fill all the way) without the needle & slowly give him water with it. You can do this several times a day. Or give him wet food. We take wet food & make 'soup' for our cats. Put half a can of wet food in bowl, add hot water, mush it around. The 'gravy' canned foods work best for it. They love it & it ups their water intake. If you lightly pinch up the skin on his neck & it stays up when you let go, he's dehydrated & needs more water. Good luck, it's hard when they're sick esp. when funds are limited. If it gets worse & you have to see the vet, tell them funds are limited & you need to be conservative on tests etc. If you have a good vet, they will work with you. Hope this improves & good luck job hunting too. edit to add -a turkey baster would prob. work as well as a syringe This post was edited by jomuir on Mon, May 13, 13 at 13:31

    Leave some wet food and water out at night and keep the kitten in the bedroom with you. The next morning, check to see if the food has been eaten during the night.

    The only cat I’ve ever had disappeared one night 3 weeks ago. Kit Kat was a neutered orange tabby that showed up at our door one day, no collar, a young adult. We had no idea where he came from and he wouldn’t go away so we fed him. He made himself at home and for the next 14 years he became a part of our family. Up until he disappeared, he caroused the rural large lot area we lived in and honestly was in heaven. He was a hunter at night and brought us many “goodies” to our doorstop to show us how proud he was of his abilities to hunt. Our neighbors said he kept the mice away. He came in the house sometimes to sleep and drink out of the dog bowl (for some reason he preferred that) but always wanted to be outside at night no matter what! He has never disappeared overnight before so when he did recently, we got very worried. He was treated for hyperthyroidism and high blood pressure but I noticed in the last weeks he seemed to lose weight but with the heat starting up in NC in May and June shedding starts. Since he disappeared, I actively looked, Posted social media, scoured neighbors outside houses. Made flyers and handouts. I setup a wildlife camera after getting advice from a professional pet tracker and added a feeding station. No signs of any wildlife. Not knowing was killing me!!! Then I put the camera in an area on the Kit Kat’s territory perimeter with approval from my neighbor. While setting up the camera and only getting possums and coyotes the nights prior, I had my dog with me and he got a whiff of something and started tracking a scent. 75’ later he found a carcass in the woods. i Don’t want to be too descriptive, but after examining the bones and some hair we are 99% sure it is our Kit Kat. He was in an area he frequented but we don’t know if he went there to die or was attacked and chased at night. Has anyone had a cat disappear and go off to die? I am grieving like everyone else and depressed. I know every day may get better but I have to trust this was the way he wanted to go and remember the love he gave me. I will miss him terribly forever.

    My cat was 8, had him since a kitten. He goes out in the nice months but not for long and always returns. He was overweight a bit, never went far. He was attached to me, slept on the bed, etc. One morning I let him out at 5AM and it was the last I saw him. On the Ring, he went under my back fence looking as if he were scared of a truck next door. That was 7AM. But he goes under the fence all the time. There's a meadow back there and woods next to a big property home for disabled, he likes to hunt for little critters and hang out. I called for him around 8:30AM and nothing. Got nervous around midday and searched for him on foot. Soon realized he was really gone :(. Posted in all the online groups, on apps, called shelters, posted flyers, searched more in neighbors that would let me and in the area. Got some texts and pictures from people on the apps but it was always a look a like and not him. He is a black and white cow cat, there seem to be many of these cats. Anyway, 2 months and I still get distraught. I miss him terribly. I feel bad for letting him out and not being up sooner to let him in. Over time I have grown to have a feeling one of my neighbors did something to him, I won't go into why but it's plausible. Just don't know for sure. I'm glad I found this thread. Reading all the stories makes me feel like I'm not alone. Don't know how long it will take for me to get over this. I miss my Charlie boy so much.

Any ideas on what is going on ?

    i've looked everywhere for him and asked a few neighbours, no sign of him. I'm going to ring the local vets today and ask a few more neighbours. we have another stray cat around that tries to eat his food and has attacked my kitten before, do you think it would of attacked him?

  • kayteedidnot

    It's very possible he was chased by this other cat and is either hiding or ran so far away he is lost and cannot find his way back.


    Outside poses many dangers for cats - besides being hit by cars they can be chased or attacked by dogs or wildlife, exposed to other feral cats with diseases, they are attracted to anti-freeze which is poison, some humans will go out of their way to harm cats. They can get locked in someone's garage, get injured by construction debris or climbed a tree and fallen, get spooked and seek a place to hide, and wander off and get lost. Cats don't always have a sense of direction nor just walk away from the person that feeds and cares for them. Another danger is if they catch a rodent that someone baited. If they were to eat the sick rodent they can be poisoned. And lastly, someone may have found him wandering and thought he was a stray. Is he micro-chipped and if so, did you register the chip in case someone finds him and turns him in to a shelter? Most Vets and shelters will scan for a micro-chip if a stray is dropped off.


    Do you give him treats from a container that when shaken and he hears it he comes running to the sound. If so, walk around and call him and make some noise with it. If he is micro-chipped you can post a 'lost' notice with a picture on PetLink so others in the community, including Vets, animal control, or rescues and shelters may see it.


    Hope he finds his way home soon!

    I'm experiencing this exact same thing with my Jinx. He too was a stray that we fed daily until one day he showed up after a fight and we took him to our vet and nearly 1500 dollars later he became our cat. We had to neuter him and quarantine him for 4 months, but during the quarantine he started to trust us and we knew he was going to be part of the family. That was over a year ago. He too like your girl would go out in the morning after his breakfast and chase the squirrels and hang out with our other cats both front and back yard, coming in and out throughout the day, He too would come in for the night before dark. This last Wednesday was just like any other, but I was busy cleaning the house so I didn't check on him as much as other days. After dinner he was nowhere to be seen I checked with everyone, searched, called and made report on websites and with the animal rescue service....I don't understand how he disappeared without a trzce....I'm so sad and anxious, I keep looking for him throughout the day and night. What could possibly have happened.....I don't know

    I picked up a cat 4 years ago during winter. It was very cold and all the shelters were plum full. We decided to keep her, plus she was expecting. She had 5 babies, my mother n law kept 2 and we kept 3. We already had 3 cats before I rescued her. We live out in the country and our cats have a cat door leading to the basement where they stay. It is nice and cozy for them. About 6 months ago she started wandering off being gone for a day or 2 then come back to eat and rest. She wandered off again, but she hasn’t come back and it’s been 2 weeks. We also heard coyotes in the back of our house, pretty much in our yard yelping like crazy in the evening and again about 1:00 am. I am hoping she comes back. I hope they didn’t get her.

  • kayteedidnot

    The merits of keeping them indoors outweigh the advantages of letting them roam where dangers lurk at every turn.


    I "rescued" multiple feral kittens from two different female cats. I think they were mother and daughter and thought they were one cat they looked identical. I already had 3 cats and within 2 years I had 10. Finally TNR'd one of the moms and the other elderly one disappeared after bringing her last litter of kittens to eat. I believe she was once domestic and abandoned as her kittens were quite tame and the mother was not fearful of humans just cautious around them. Sadly, returned for a couple of days with a mouse in her mouth calling out to her kittens. It was hard to watch her search for them.


    All the cats except the last two kittens were caught 16-22 weeks old and they were too wild to adopt out so I kept every one of them, had them neutered and spayed - the works and never let them outside ever again. They eventually tamed - I guess you would call them semi-feral but they are all lovable and have quirky personalities.


    Someone once said to me 'indoor cats will not miss what they don't know' in other words being outside but my rescues were born and lived outside for a time, yet anytime I open the door they run away from the door. They have no desire to go outside and I have no intention of letting them out ever!

    HU, it's more likely if you have a number of cats that there may have been territorial issues going on with them. Sometimes it can be kind of subtle - doesnt necessarily involve a lot of hissing and fur flying. The reason I think that is because she was going off for periods of time before disappearing.

    Thats assuming she was spayed after having the kittens - if not, then she was out looking for a mate and may now be hunkered down somewhere with her new kittens. Not saying that coyotes getting cats doesnt happen - just that there are any number of other possibilities with free range cats including getting stuck in buildings and chased from their territory by dogs or other cats. Cats are pretty savvy and generally know how to evade predators and keep hidden - that instinctive behavior is what makes them so hard for us humans to find them sometimes.

    I too am looking for my cat since may 20th of this last year, she too was pregnant and ready to deliver, I felt she left because of another female cat I have that was not good to her. If only I had set her room up a day earlier, if only had gotten her fixed, I am beyond heartbroken still, the worst part is at the time of her leaving, (that she made that decision, instinct) I did not make her feel safe and for this I have been so deviststated. People tell me in a way, to get over it, I find this very difficult. I just want to know if someone has her but knocking on doors, even if they did have her I don't think anyone would give her up.

    I'm senfing you this because I know your heartache your going through and I'm so very sorry, I'm right there w you. There's so many people experiencing this as well, there's so many lost pets daily,

    I hope you find your baby. I still look for her but have to take breaks as I get so overwhelmed w emotion it makes me sick.

    Good luck to you and her safe return home.

    Our 2 year old male cat went missing Dezember 31. Around 3 pm.

    January 1, I informed all my neighbors, if they saw a kitty with a collar.. One day later I made flyer, put it everywhere, noone see him at all. Until now January 14.

    I don't give up, I know he is still alive, I don't know how many people are looking.. I have to say, we just moved, we kept all my cats indoor for a week.. But there was some aggressive cat outside who attacks him 4 times in 3 days. I think he got chased away from him.

    I don't give up, I know he is there somewhere.

    I know from a cat who escaped the vet. He run over the street, then back to the forest area. We put flyer in that area, and put it on Facebook. The first day someone saw him. Then noone saw him again, until six weeks later. Someone found him in the kitchen..

    I will not give up..

    My son let my female pet cat "Trudy" outside at 1:30 am on Saturday, March 13, 2021. He checked on her a half hour later but she didn't respond to his calling her. An hour after that, he called her name again.. No response. We both walked & checked everywhere - even the woods - in the hope that she may have wandered off & she'd hear us call her name. Early evening came & I began to worry a lot. She's 10 years old - part Siamese but looks like a full Siamese with vivid blue eyes. Her fur is like a very soft lamb wool. She rarely left the yard. She sometimes went under the hedge or crawled under the cedar fence on the one side of our property but mostly she stayed in the front yard or would lay on the roof of my truck. I wish my son had stopped letting the cat out in the dark. It got to be a habit - his giving into the cat. Our cat has been gone for nearly 63 hours! I keep hoping she'll reappear soon. Trudy has always been so good natured & I won't give up hope. Our other cat Morris went outside on June 28, 2014 at 4:00 am & he also disappeared. We found the cat dead on a neighbour's lawn at 7 pm that evening. I live on Embleton Crescent in Courtenay & I gather that many cats in this neighbourhood have mysteriously disappeared. I get cats doing their business in my flowerbeds all the time but in no way would I set a trap to relocate them or resort to poison. I love all cats!

    For whatever reason, I read through all of these sad, sad stories, wondering when I was going to see someone mention building a catio. Since 2010, I saw only Debbie Downer in 2018 say she built one for her "indoor/outdoor" cat for $300. Good job.

    Of course accidents happen. Some get a cat and are not accustomed, or somehow think cats will be "street smart" or whatever, or seem to live outside....until they don't. Where I live, coyotes jump over 6-8 foot fences. I see them every day, though my neighbors never see them at all. But we have dogs who point them out to us. Coyotes can clean jump back over a 6' fence with a cat or small dog in the mouth. Bigger dogs they kill in your yard quickly.

    My philosophy is this: if I have a pet I'm going to protect that pet. If I have a horse, I will have a secure, well-built, big-enough corral with proper shelter. I wouldn't have a dog outside under 30-40 pounds without a leash, period. Even then, coyotes get small dogs on leashes, too.

    BUILD A CATIO. Yep, $300 should do it. Then your cat gets to be outdoors, and you aren't letting your cat crap all over the neighbors' yard and get into fights over there, and you aren't responsible for yet another cat getting hit by a car.

    If you feel bad about losing your cat, I do hope you find them, and find them well.

    I'm just saying, protect the ones you still have, and protect your next cat. If you tame or keep an animal, you owe it to give it good care and protection.

    Well said Mrs. S. They are sad stories and probably sad endings for many of these cats mentioned, but it does not have to be that way. I advocate keeping cats indoors with the exception of a stray that I had sheltered outdoors and micro-chipped. The reason due to too many cats already. She is inside permanently now and 18 years old. I cannot stress the dangers lurking for any cat roaming outside.

    Hi, my name is Peter, 15yo boy, I have a cat that I adopted it when it was 1 week old, it recently became 10months old, it usually go hunting for 2 or 4 hours per day and sometimes it go at night and come back in the morning, it is indoor and outdoor cat, but last Saturday at night it disappeared, and since that day till now I'm searching for it and I can't know if it's alive or dead, my heart is really broken, I'm just reading now all stories about missing cats on google so they may increase my hopes to find it with their happy endings, it never went more than 8hours and it usually sleeps behind me, I'm literally sleeping crying each night and praying for it to come back.

    Peter, a lot of people near me post great advice on Nextdoor about finding lost cats. I wouldnt' give up hope. I read that it's a good idea to put the litterbox outside. Put some signs up. Post on your local "Nextdoor" app or Facebook, or both. I would also go look for your cat. Are people still setting off fireworks where you are? Animals can become quite scared. Maybe your cat is just hiding. I would check under bushes, ask neighbors to check their garages, and don't give up.


    When you get your cat back, consider building a "catio" which is an outdoor, safe place for a cat to spend part of their day outside. Good luck.

    Maybe Midnight wasn’t a stray and she went back to her original owner. When you find a ‘stray’ cat or a cat without a collar don’t assume it’s a stray. Take the cat to a vet and see if it has a microchip before incorporating it into your family. My black cat went missing 10 days ago and I’m holding out hope that she will be returned to me.

    Andrea I too came here looking for answers as our little "Willie" has been gone for over 2 weeks now sadly.... He was born to a feral cat, with 3 other siblings, almost 3 years ago, in our garage. He was the only one that has stayed here the whole time. The others come and go, but he has laid his claim here and lets them know it! At the end of August I noticed an owl in a dead tree in the woods behind us. I thought it was pretty cool at first. I noticed it 2 other times, the last being the 9th of Sept. It even swooped down literally feet from me and scared the crap out of me then turned towards the neighbors yard, it was so quiet I didn't even realize it was coming till it was here. Willie has been missing since the 6th. I have been going crazy since and hate to think it's possible that the owl is what happened to him! Sadly I guess it is possible, but I keep holding out hope. He was the sweetest little boy, I sure do miss him.... This was a great horned owl from what I could tell of it and pretty big also! Sigh, I hope your cat with the surgery has recovered.

    This thread again! Instead of, or in addition to posting here please check out the many websites which now offer good, accurate, science-based advice about how to go about finding a missing pet.


    Sometimes, probably mostly, they come back on their own. But often not, and in cases where the cat may have been terrorized/driven out of their territory by a dog or aggressive cat, or been injured you really do need to go the extra mile and do a physical search and/or up your outreach and publicity. Sometimes a cat will go into what's called "feral" or survival mode and not come or reply when you call - sometimes trapping is necessary to recover a particularly skittish animal.


    Time consuming, emotionally exhausting? Yes unfortunately sometimes it is. But to get your cat back or to see him on trail cam footage and know he's alive - priceless!!! The research indicates that most cats not found are not dead, but are simply absorbed into the feral population. They are smart resourceful animals with strong survival instincts, and chances are good your cat can be found using a thorough and effective search methodology. No guarantees of course, but speaking for myself when my cat went missing for 6 weeks I just felt I had to do everything I could so I would have no regrets. So I did.... and after six week succeeded in getting him back! Wishing you all a similar good ending.... or at least peace with however it turns out.

    Well, I can't. The poster should attempt a modicum of courtesy to those trying to help. And refrain from using profanities that even dazymae "can read"

    And you should butt out! ni wurd (si Do you condone the use of the F Word in a post here? Then why defend that poster's illiterate and foul post? Moronic!

    I had a black and white cat name Smudge who was a semi feral cat who we became bonded. I had scheduled him to get neutered 5 days before he went missing a year ago. he never returned. I miss him and still think about him. in the back of my mind I wonder if my neighbor did something to him. He would let his dog come over and chase our cats. sometimes he would sic the dog on my feral cats. I confronted him about that and told him to stop or i would call the law and animal control on him. He told a friend of mine that he shot a black cat crossing the bottom of his yard..... that is animal abuse.

    I felt so sad reading these heartbreaking posts. I am crying. Our beautiful semi feral cat disappeared about 2 months ago, She " adopted " us 18 months ago when we saw her catching and eating rats in our garden . she came from nowhere and has gone , I posted on social media and in the local paper , and got a reply from someone about a mile away , that she has been seen in gardens over there. She is very nervous , though she let my partner stroke her when she was here. She seems quite young though fully grown and she had a luxury pad here in the conservatory , with several cat beds and a duvet and plenty of food my partner bought her . She seemed to trust us though seemingly petrified a lot of the time. Its such a worry about what will happen to her. Maybe a dog or badger chased her. We always had indoor cats before , only let out under guard! I am a widow and found this man who also loves animals and wildlife. We were happy, We cant get another cat due to our age and the thought that somehow she might return. I am praying and hoping.

    Mine disappeared 5 days ago, 10 days after she was spayed. Her kittens are still here, thank God they were 10 weeks old and mostly weaned. She never goes very far away from the house, but we have coyotes in our area and hear them often. She and her neutered brother would go out for a short hunt after the evening meal and leave the kittens inside. Everyone was here the next morning but her. In May our neutered 19 month old male, who adopted the pair we had now until the female disappeared, also disappeared. His littermate disappeared 14 months earlier than him. The first two were chipped. Never saw a sign of them again. The neighbors who have "barn" cats have lost many of them. If you have coyotes nearby, I hate to say this but that's probably where your baby went. My heart goes out to you. I know mine is aching!
