Cat gone missing - need VIBES, please!

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I'm posting this on behalf of a business associate of mine.

Kessalina, aka Kess, went missing 5 days ago in the Gloucester, MA area. She is an indoor/outdoor kitty who has ALWAYS come home before, and her meowmy is very scared and worried for her. She has been to the lost pets website and has followed all the tips to no avail.

I told her that TCS vibes are amazing and it can't hurt to add the collective prayers and energies of fellow cat lovers to hers.

Here is a picture of the missing beauty:

Please help me in sending out vibes that Kess will come home SAFE and SOON to her worried meowmy!!! Thank you guys!!!

15 people have read this so far and not one is sending out vibes?

I'm just a little disappointed, folks. Do you only send out vibes for TCS kitties? Aren't others worthy of your prayers???

Thank you all SO much! Kess' meowmy is worried to pieces and is afraid of the worst because we have coyotes and fischer (sp?) cats in our area.

She's also blaming herself for having let her out the door, but I've told her it is NOT her fault - Kess was an indoor/outdoor and would have bugged her to bits - she uses the outside as her litter box.

She's going to keep me posted, and she was moved to tears when I told her I was going to be asking the TCS community to add Kess to their thoughts and prayers that she come home safe and sound.

I'm hoping that the worst is simply that Kess found a stranger who took her in thinking that she was lost.

Thank you so much, those of you who care enough to wish a stranger's kitty home safe! I'll let you know if/when she comes home safely - she's SO pretty, my heart goes out to her mom, Lisa.

Thanks again!!!

Continued vibes ....... how distraught Lisa must be

Has she tried the humane trap with tuna inside? Or what about leaving one of her t-shirts out, so Kess can smell "home". Im not really familar with all of the tips, Im just trying to go on "memory" of what I have read that has worked for others.

There are a lot of tips on here. Ive even seen, I believe Katie (TNR) post some tips before, let me look around and see if I can find them.

Here's a post I found from Katie (TNR1)

You also may want to try this advice:

Best Friends’ Animal Radio recently interviewed Kat Albrecht, author of The Lost Pet Chronicles, and she gave some very good advice on finding a lost cat:

Most people don’t differentiate between searching for a dog and searching for a cat, which is a huge mistake, because they are like apples and oranges. Cats are territorial, so when an indoor cat escapes outside, they feel displaced into unfamiliar territory. A displaced cat (and also an injured or sick cat) will hide and they will be silent. So walking around and calling the cat’s name doesn’t work.

What that cat does is to look for the first place where she can hide, and she will stay there. We’ve had people who have recovered their cats six weeks later, and the cat was two houses down, living under the neighbor’s house or under their deck.

We’ve actually recovered lots of cats by treating them like ferals and setting a humane trap. These cats will sit there and watch and even listen to their person calling, but they will usually not respond.

Eventually, some of them will reach a threshold point between the seventh and tenth day where they finally do meow or they go into the humane trap, but many of them, especially the ones with skittish temperaments, just continue to hide.

As for a cat who is used to going outside, we really do advocate making your cats indoor-only. However, if an indoor/outdoor cat does go missing, it may be that they’ve been chased by a dog or beat up by another cat. They may run into an unfamiliar area, and they may hide in fear as well, or than can be transported out of the area by crawling into a car or the back of a truck.

Outdoor cats are still territorial. They don’t generally travel great distances by themselves, so they’re going to be found within their territory or just beyond it. You’ll want to get into your neighbor’s yard to search under their porch, under their house, and in potential areas where the cat is trapped, because, again, the behavior of an injured or sick cat is that they will crawl in or under something that’s familiar to them and they will hide. And again, they won’t answer your call

Thank you guys so much - she's been to lost-pets.org and followed all the tips, and handed out flyers to all her neighbors asking them to check garages, basements, under porches, etc., etc.

I'll share this additional stuff with her just in case, but her kitty hasn't been seen anywhere near her home in close to a week now.

Again, thank you all so much!

continuing to send {{{{prayers and vibes}}}} for kess' safe return home. maybe she hitched a ride in a car by mistake. once a man drove over 5 hours from the Bay Area to the Mammoth Lakes area, and a kitten was in his engine compartment and survived. he didn't even try to find out where it came from. But his daughters kept the kitten

I can hope, anyway.

Kess hasn't come home yet, and her meowmy is beside herself, having difficulty focusing at work. She's been asking all her neighbors to please check their basements and garages, and she's convinced that Kess has gotten into someplace that she may have then been accidently locked into.

She says that Kess won't come to anyone unless it's a female with a VERY soft voice, so she can't imagine that Kess has been taken in as a stray.

Poor Lisa, she's so sad, and I wish I could do more to help her, but instead all I can do is keep sending out vibes for Kess to please come home to her meowmy!

Please continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers - and I thank you, on behalf of Lisa, Kesselina's Meowmy.

UPDATE: Kess has been FOUND!

Kess was found locked in a basement across the street from her home (one that her owner had already searched perviously to no avail.) She was very thin, having been gone for 17 days in total, but otherwise healthy, and she was VERY happy to see her meowmy again!!

Her Meowmy, Lisa, has vowed that from now on, Kesselina is to be an indoor-only kitty, and that she's just going to have to get used to it!

Once again, the TCS vibe network has done the trick - I can't thank you all enough for your vibes and prayers for this sweet little girl!!! Bless you all for your caring!!!!
