    Default My cat is lost :( Adelaide inner northern burbs

    My beautiful 4 year old cat went missing yesterday evening. She has never strayed from our house and yard before. She is a predominantly indoor cat. I am devastated, I've spent all day doing letter box drops and ringing councils, shelters and vets.

    I haven't eaten all day (I feel sick) and I didn't sleep last night.

    I feel absolutely helpless, and what makes matters worse is that she wasn't wearing a collar and tag I should have had one on her! I feel like an idiot. She is microchipped but that involves someone taking her to a vet or shelter.

    I lost 2 cats to cancer in the last couple of years. I never imagined my healthy little cat could be taken from me. I don't think I can cope with losing another pet

    Do cats usually find their own way back home? How many days do they take? Do they go very far if they don't usually stray?

    My first cat was gone for 2 weeks and one of the cats I have now was gone for just over a week. Both times I think they were exploring someone's garage and got locked in by mistake. The next time the garage was open they were out. I'm sure she's ok and as soon as she can get back to you she will. They're very good with sense of direction and where home is xxx

    you should try "lost dogs of adelaide" on facebook. They cater for all lost pets.

    Also our cat (12 years old at the time) went missing for over a week, she turned up one day out of the blue, looking terrible but we were glad she came back. She is now 16 years old and still going strong.

    Thanks loveheart, she is on their site. It's such a wonderful site

    Your story makes me feel a bit better. I've just been up the street calling to her. Someone else's cat came out to greet me

    We hope we find her soon. She has been our fur kid for 3 years. Before that we don't know much, other than she was dropped off at the RSPCA very heavily pregnant.

    When we adopted her we promised her an easier and happier life and we have mostly succeeded. Life has been harder for her during the last 7 months (since we had DS). We haven't been able to spend as much time with her. I hope she didn't run away because of that

    Cats are loyal. They don't often just 'run away'. When our most recent cat went missing I blamed myself because she was living with a friend who had kids and a dog in the uk while we waited to have her flown out here. I kept thinking she had run away and it was my fault but she hadn't. She made her way back as soon as she was able and she's now also joined us in oz.

    Keep walking around your neighborhood calling her name. My childhood cat was an indoor cat and got out a few times, each time she was hiding frightened someplace fairly close to the house. I think when they're not used to being outside they get scared more easily and hideout. Hopefully you have people in you neighborhood like me, whenever I see a lost pet poster I put the number in my phone so if I happen to see the pet I can call the owners straight away.
