No I haven't found her yet
. Thanks for the concern. I do appreciate it.
I'm having trouble getting permission to search at night. Alot of people have dogs around here who would bark to high heaven if they heard me poking through the woods at night.
I've been getting some help over at The Contra Costa forums
too. The thread is in the Lost Outdoor Access Cats forum under Where's my Nuzzi if you want to have a look.
It's funny how your dog is a surrogate mother to your cat because my cat is a surragate mother to my dog! They are (hopefully not were
) just inseparable and he misses her so much. The three of us are kinda like a club
I am a little worried that someone may have taken her in and isn't letting her leave, but at least she would be well fed and Nuzzi is sneaky, sly, and quick enough to break out in due time if that is the case. She has ways of getting out that we still haven't been able to figure out yet. We ended up giving up figuring it out and just started letting her out. She loves it out there too much to keep her in. I hate it, but she is so much happier you can see it even when she is inside.
There has been a serious decline in the squirrel population over the last week or two. There are normally six or eight running around, then they all disappeared. I'm not sure what to make of this. It has been making me real nervous. I noticed four this after noon after a morning thunder storm though.
None of my next door neighbors have ever seen her. She liked to stick to the woods anyway. The neighbor that recognized her from a picture is in my back woods and Nuzzi does like to hang out there. I haven't been able to get in touch with this neighbor since I last spoke with him. I would like to take the dog through for a sniff. The first time I took Tazz out, he did show interest in this yard.
There was another yard where a cat was "left" that he has sniffed around in, but his reaction isn't what I would expect if it were Nuz, but then again it isn't what I would expect if it weren't.
There are various scents thoughout the yard now. I tried putting some cleanex soaked with tear drops thinking it may make her want to confort me, but I think the rain washed the scent away. Tazzi's scent is always out there and is the most likely to attract her.
Well, it's time to take the dog for another sniff.
Oh btw- if I'm not going to get anymore input on how long a cat can go without food or water, this thread really ought to be moved and renamed.
I'll try to keep you updated.
Thanks for the help
