Justice Posted July 17, 2010 Report Share Posted July 17, 2010 I just moved to a new house/new city 3 weeks ago, and my indoor cat decided to run past me and jump over the gate at the back door. At first I wasn't too worried since cats usually stick pretty close to home. Now it is Day 5 and no sign of him. I think something happened to him or he became lost on the 1st day. None of the food/water has been touched that I have been leaving out. He is very, very shy...was once considered feral and will not go to anyone. If he is still alive I suspect he is hiding in someones shrubs or bushes and is not easily seen. He will run if anyone approaches him. I have posted flyers and talked to all the neighbors...not a single phone call or sighting. He is microchipped but the chance of him being caught and ending up at a shelter is very slim. He has a very rough, tortuous first 2 years of his life. When he was first found he had an injury to his eye so bad, the eyeball was hanging out of the socket,and ended up being removed. I have spent the past 2 1/2 years getting him to trust me and let me touch him. I promised to take care of him and protect him and now I have failed him. I don't know where he is or what he is going through. I fear that he will end up living as a feral again with no love, medical care, and never trust anyone again. It has been over 100 degrees every day and I am sure he is dehydrated and hungry. I feel helpless and guilty. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
