    If you've only had her a week its possible she's trying to get back to her old home; maybe try there?

    Hi - Just seen your post Delph123 and wanted to try and reassure you. My Cat (who has been neutered) went missing 3 and half days ago and have just found him over the back of my house near some fields. He has never done this before where he has been away from the house for four nights in a row - He has ALWAYS come home every night! This behavior is totally out of the ordinary and have been going totally frantic; searching the streets, knocking on doors and posting flyers and so forth - I now feel like I do not know my own cat! Please don't loose hope - The flyers actually helped, as a little girl had said she'd seen him in the exact area only the night before. I will also add, i thought my cat was a bit of a loner, but now thinking otherwise - The moment I brought him in, a little tabby came into our garden; which brings me to the conclusion he'd found a mate and maybe had gone off hunting/playing - but who really knows though. Don't give up on the lil lady just yet - The weather is getting milder, so maybe your cat is simply out exploring/hunting. Good luck I hope she comes back and it's still worth while walking round the streets and calling her name.

    This is a very unusual story but we had a cat that went missing and came back 4 years later! And he came and saw his Mum and sisters (we had about 6 cats at that point!) and they had a good sniff and a lick of each other, and came occasionally for a few months! We noticed that he had been 'done' and had a collar on so we knew he was owned- we were happy that someone loved him and was looking after him. It was so amazing to see him after so long! We'd put up lost cat posters and gone out and called him at night but no luck. We think he must have gone quite far!
    But I definitely would recommend putting posters up with a photo if you have one, and share it on Facebook or social media, ask your neighbours if they've seen them and so on. Don't give up!

    My cat has gone missing. This isn't a answer but I am very worried hence the reason I am looking on this website. I love her so much and really don't know why she might have gone missing. She usually comes back at night but there is still no sign of her. Please help. Hope you find your cat btw.

    Are there any lost and found pets pages on Facebook for your local area? If so you could put her picture on there. You could also see if your local council's animal control helps to find lost pets; the one in my hometown does this for both dogs and cats (although the one where I currently live only does it for dogs) and they found my dog after he got out and been missing for a few days. Good luck.

    Our cat Leo went missing and I googled do cat's wander and it is so hopeful to see that Delph123's cat was found. I posted in our neighbor app Nextdoor.com and Lot Pets of Corona Facebook page. I went to the local animal shelter. I'll put flyers out next. I will keep my hopes up.

    My 1 yr old female cat has gone missing, it's a week today. We've posted flyers to our neighbours and everything but still no luck. I can't sleep at night thinking she's out there somewhere. I go on dog walks around our nearby fields and call her name with her favourite toy (that makes a noise) but still no luck. We have a busy by pass right next to us and have gone up and down there to check if she's been hit but still no sign. We're going to make some more flyers and post them further around the area this time. Has anyone got anymore tips to try and find her and to make me sleep better as I've been going to sleep at 5 worrying about her, it's a horrible time.

    [QUOTE=Delph123;42642255]Has anyone had a cat that has disappeared in a way that is completely out of character and still come back? If so how long were they away?
    Just looking for some hope really- my cat wandered off what is now nearly three days ago, no sign of her, desperately want her back and just wondering how long, realistically, I can hope she will wander back in for?
    Thanks x


    Feel your concerns; my daughter's cat, (WHO I LOVE DEARLY) has been missing going on a week and some few days now. We are worried beyond norm. He hasn't been neutered yet. Is completely out of character for him..he's always return never stray far from us. I've canvas entire neighborhood and then some. I CANNOT release him nor give up!!! Have heard a dog whining in the neighborhood as if he was hurt or wanting off chain. Went around afterwards to see if my cat wasn't caught by him no sign of cat nor injury, (which could be a good thing) WE KNOW he wouldn't go up to anyone unfamiliar.

    Don't give up hope. Go for walks around your neighbourhood and you might see it. Or it might show up in your garden soon

    When I was a kid, my cat disappeared for 4 months but came back

    Also, one winter a few years back, we had a stray cat walk along our window outside in the snow. Felt sorry for it and let it in. Did some searching on lost pet websites and found the owner. No idea how as there are so many websites and pages to search. The crazy thing was it turned out that the cat was like 50+ miles from home. Anything's possible

    Cats can sometimes find a second home and get comfy there. Three days isnt too long.
    Hope it comes back, but realistically if you live near roads theres every chance its had a mishap, been taken by a fox or cat napped. Hope none of these are the case.
