Tower is missing

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
My beautiful male cat Tower is missing. He hasn't been seen since Tuesday. He is gray & white with the gray dipping around one eye. Being a former feral, he is very hard to keep in, but even when he gets out he stays mostly around the yard. I am also missing six cats from my colony.
Please send prayers and good vibes. I am heartbroken.

Thank you!

Oh lord I hope they all show up soon.I know exactly how you must be feeling

How many cats are in your colony altogether?If so many have gone missing in such
a short space of time then you must assume that they are either being trapped or
somebody is maybe poisoning them.
Can you keep the area under surveilance?like watching for anything suspicious?

No news yet. I have put up Reward posters. I am crying as I write this. It is just so upsetting. I keep calling shelters and they say they haven't seen him. I am going to try to take a ride down to one of them to see if he is there later this afternoon. What if he was dropped off at the kill shelter and I couldn't get there in time? (No car presently) The lady there told me they definitely put all animals to sleep after 3 days. (Some world we live in...).

We now have 7 cats left in the colony. I have watched and watched and I see nothing suspicious. I don't understand. I am such a mess...all I can do is keep coming to this site. Thank you for all of your understanding and well-wishes.

I am hoping that at least if someone sees the poster that they will come forward to let me know something...anything. They should at least have the decency to let me know about Tower if not the cats from the colony.

I strongly believe in the power of prayer so please keep sending your prayers my way.

JIL05,

I understand how terrible it is to have a missing beloved pet. I'll keep praying for Tower to return. But just remember that you made a difference in his life and he knows that you love him. Don't give up on him, I had friend who's cat was missing for over a month before finding his way home! Hang in there!

There is still no sign of Tower or the other cats from the colony. I have gone from sad to angry. I had reward posters up and I have put an ad on Petfinder and my local newspaper with no results. I find it inconceivable that none of my neighbors know anything. I can only imagine what could have happened the cats. How do I live around people like this? I know that the colony annoyed everyone, but that's the colony. All of them knew that Tower was a personal pet. I know I am running on, but I am very upset. In the back of my mind, I really thought he would be back by now.

Thanks for listening.

Since he is feral I don't need to tell you how independent they can be. Maybe he found himself another place to live? Maybe he is hiding?

Here are the best vibes I can send that Tower comes back home!

I think you may have misunderstood Tower is an ex feral who Jil owns and has
lived inside with her although you may be right that he may have gone walkabout
this Is out of character for Tower
and YES you are exactly right 2dogmom Tcs vibes have a miraculous way of working their MAGIC

Jil I'm still praying for Tower and ALL the other ferals that are missing

I guess I should have said "feral at heart"? I wonder sometimes if there is such a thing as an ex-feral. All I have is the one you see in my siggy and I think the great outdoors calls to him.

But anyway, let's focus on those TCS vibes!

Yes, Tower was more a family member than a feral when he left. He had a bed inside and slept most of his winter days inside. He got along with all of the other inside cats and he is very missed by his real brother. It was incredibly hard to keep him in...especially when it got nice out. He loved to sun himself. Of course it had to happen when I had no car and could not travel to any of the shelters but one. I had to call everyone and most of them were not too friendly or helpful.

In the meantime two more of the ferals that we take care of have disappeared. The last young one is gone along with an older male. I still have hopes to find these two and Tower, so please keep them all in your prayers.

I cannot explain to you how I feel with all of this taking place. I am so heartbroken. I feel like I let them all down. Maybe I hurt my own cat by caring for a colony....I knew that there were getting to be too many, that's why I posted for any help with the last four kittens...to see if anyone in the area could help socialize them and try to get them adopted. I feel partly responsible, because I had been playing with them and trying to get them used to people. Was I the cause that they trusted someone else and got caught?

The not knowing in all of this is killing me. How do so many cats disappear without a trace? I feel absolutely terrible...

Well...Some good news at last. While Tower remains missing, the other two (ferals) that I thought were missing have come home. The little one still limps a bit but she seems to be walking better. The other older one (We named him Double Stuff- He's like an oreo), is very quiet. I can't help but think how these cats must feel with half their family gone.

Funny thing about the LOST poster in front of our house- It disappeared two days ago. I have a suspicion that it was taken down, there were alot of staples in it... but I can't be sure. I don't think I am dealing with very nice people here...I don't care- I put it right back up!

Quick question about Tower- How far out do I put the missing posters? If they drove him somewhere , how am I ever going to reach whoever might find the cat? I am going to put another ad in the paper and hope that if he is found, they will read it. I am starting to think that he isn't going to be found...

Thanks for all of your prayers and good vibes. I really, truly appreciate every kind word.

Check out my lost pets website www.lost-pets.org The information also applies to outdoor only cats- the pet detective I mention on the website was the one who helped me find my missing cat long ago
post #22 of 28
That's great news you got two back So there's still hope the others can come
back?hopefully

Do you think someone might have enticed them into a garage or something and
those two could have escaped?
It does sound a bit odd and does sound like a possibility especially as they've
been gone for so long

Still no word on Tower or the other ferals, but the other two have stuck around. They still seem more skittish than ever and one seems a bit down. I think that they didn't disappear, but were laying low for a while.

I think I am officially going to give up now. My LOST posters ran yesterday with the rain and today somebody put a big Garage Sale poster over one of the Lost posters. Tower is not anywhere around here. Neither are the ferals. I can't believe somebody got away with doing this. I checked out that site, Hissy, but I don't think anything will help me as I truly believe the cats were taken somewhere. I was thinking though, it had to be a regular person because Animal Control would recognize the ear tip on a few of them and know that they were taken care of in a colony. Anyway that's what I thought.

Most of you are so lucky, you have neighbors who help or at least understand the work you are doing with the ferals. My neighbors really hate cats. They don't even want to see one. All they care about is worshiping the lawn god everyday. They are a cold, clueless lot.

I am also dealing with Tower's brother. He is not himself since Tower left. He paces the house, won't settle for long and cries alot more. We have been showering him with attention so he should be doing better soon.

I do have one more ad in the paper that will be starting on Wednesday. Maybe, just maybe, somebody will see Tower somewhere.

I don't know how I missed this thread before.

I am giving you many many vibes. I know how you feel.

I hope the ad will help and maybe someone has at least seen him.

Come home Tower.

The newspaper ad has ended and no word about Tower from anybody. I really miss him and I feel guilty about slowing down my search. The posters are down, (well for some reason most of them are "falling" off the pole, while other far away ones stay up fine) and I think I put in my last ad in the paper. My heart aches over what could have happened to him...or how anybody can just take a pet away from its mommy.
I know there is the slimmest possibility that he just wandered off after 7 years, but with all of the others disappearing the very same day/night it is just too fishy.

My new prayer is that if he was just left somewhere out there that someone kind takes him in and cares for him. He loves his ears scratched, honeysuckle and being spoiled. He has a very loud, deep purr which is what I will miss most of all. I miss the others very much too... I don't mean to leave them out.

All of this just hurts so much. Thanks so much for letting me talk about him here. It's the one place where you don't get "It's just a cat."

I wish life was easier sometimes.

It is so hard to lose a loved one especially when there is not really any closure.

I am still keeping hope for your Tower and my Jasper.
