My Cat Dolly is Missing

Question:
I am convinced that cats have telepathic powers which they use when they feel the need. — Molly
Oh, yes, I believe that too, especially at meal times! The other morning I was dozing on and off in bed before getting up. It was just before 7 a.m, and kitty had been shut out of the bed room for the night (I know, mean catmommie) cos my asthma was worsening. Well, Ivory wants fed at seven every morning on the dot. And she knows when it is seven – if the bed room door is open, I get headbutts at seven exactly (you can set the clock by her – how she knows it’s time is also beyond me!) and if the door is closed I get scratching and little motley colored paws being pushed through an extremely small gap. Now usually I need to get up to the bathroom then anyway, so feed her at the same time (Ivory now knows she has to wait patiently outside the bathroom and then she’ll get fed). But the other morning I didn’t need to get up so urgently, so when the scratching occurred I called out “Ivory, go away, Mummy’s sleeping”. Scratching continued but I ignored it and drifted back off to sleep facing away from door. Next  minute, I startled awake with a hell of a fright because the cat was head butting me like she usually does. Only – the cat was shut outside the door scratching on it! I could have sworn that she jumped up behind me like she does if the door is open and started butting the back of my head. Only no kitty. Now, I don’t know if it was just me dreaming, a guilty conscience, or Ivory forcefully putting across the message that she was hungry and wanted fed NOW, but at that point I decided not to toy with the wrath of kitty any longer and I got up and fed her one of the small cans of wet food she usually only gets as a treat. Never toy with kitty’s hunger! <grin. Mere

Response:
I sometimes get the feeling my cat is psychic and very wise because if I look at her long enough and she just stairs at me I know something is going in that mind of hers. I once heard that maybe one of the reasons why a cat may stare out into space is because they are pondering the secrets of the universe. In my case I have a feeling it’s true. Though despite a cat coming from royalty I do believe they were guardians as well. I get the feeling of this whenever I am sleeping and then wake up to see her at the foot of my bed or having her sleep on the pillow next to me.  Cats are truely magnificen and wonderful creatures aren’t they? – Hide quoted text — Show quoted text – I am convinced that cats have telepathic powers which they use when they feel the need. — Molly Oh, yes, I believe that too, especially at meal times!

Well hello Dolly!  It’s so nice to have you back where you belong….. da da da da  LoL! So now everyone count their blessings and name tag your cat.  One of my kittins got out of the house THE DAY AFTER I put a elastic coller and tag on him and was kindly returned to me by a neighbor FROM ACROSS THE FREWAY.

Way back in the 1970’s, we moved house and my cat Merry disappeared after a few days.  (It turned out that he had got shut in someone’s garage).  After four or five days we were about to give up hope – we had gone out calling (and found someone else’s lost kitten!) with no result.  In the middle of the night, my then husband dreamt that he heard Merry crying at the front door.  It would have been totally impossible for him actually to have heard this, due to the layout of the house.  But the dream was so strong that he got up and went to the front door, and opened it – and there, annoyed and hungry, was Merry!

Do members of this NG think it likely she’ll turn up, or should we start to resign ourselves to the fact she might well not.
Hi there, A friend of mine owns 2 indoor cats, and one of them slipped out of the house accidentally last summer. She didn’t discover her missing until the following day, and still hasn’t figured out how she got out. She went out calling for Tazi several times every day, and immediately put up several notices (with pictures) in local pet food stores, grocery stores, etc. As time passed, she continued looking but was beginning to lose hope. On day 13, someone left a phone message on her machine saying that she had seen Tazi in a certain area very near my friend’s home late at night.  My friend went there with an open tin of tuna in the late evening, and kept looking out the window every half hour or more. At 3 am, she was elated to see that Tazi had emerged and was eating the tuna. She happily collected her cat, smothered her with kisses, and looked her over. She’d lost a pound, was very dirty, and had some cuts and scratches, but is back at home now. Good luck – I hope you find her. Like a missing child, soon after the disappearance is when you are most likely to find her, so I would go out frequently and call for her, and bring something that smells really delicious or a sound that she associates with food.  But even if you don’t find her right away, don’t give up. I’ve also read stories about people whose cats went missing for far longer and who did eventually turn up at home. -Jen

It is possible that something startled Dolly and she ran away and couldn’t find her way home. Do carry on a systematic search for Dolly. Draw a map of a ten block area around your house. Go slowly through all of the streets calling Dolly’s name. I sincerely hope that you will find her soon. Jean

When my eldest, Zoe, was about that age to about 18 months, she would go missing for several days at a time.  She would turn up none the worse, demanding food and petting as though it was my fault she had been away. My 7 m.o., Zog, shows signs of doing the same, wanting to go out at night and not wanting to come back in until the morning. I’m sure yours will come back in a few hours.  Its starting to rain here (UK SWEng) , which is usually a good cat homing device. — Smart Alex “Here’s a man who lives a life of danger, Everywhere he goes, he stays.  A stranger”  [Laurie Anderson]

Put posters up around your neighbourhood – on lamposts, through letterboxes. Contact your *local* radio stations – the BBC local radio where I live will broadcast details of missing pets. Get hold of telephone numbers of *all* the animal shelters where you live, not just the RSPCA, and start ringing. It may be that Dolly has become accidentally locked into someone’s garage or outbuilding, so it really is worth knocking on doors and asking people to check these. Good luck, Helen S

I wouldn’t give up on her yet.  My cat Pickles goes out at night and lies on the driveway.  She never strays off the property.  But once in a blue moon she has to make her ma be miserable by wandering off for several days.  I don’t know if she just visits someone else’s house or what.  The other thing is that although I’m sure you’ve looked, cats can find some really weird places to hide.  If your Mitzi came in right away after they were both let out, I bet something or someone scared them both.  Maybe Dolly just found a spectacular and bizarre place to hide.  Check out everything, even places you think might be too small for her.  A scared cat can make itself pretty darned small. Good luck. Karen Hohne

I am convinced that cats have telepathic powers which they use when they feel the need. — Molly
Oh, yes, I believe that too, especially at meal times! The other morning I was dozing on and off in bed before getting up. It was just before 7 a.m, and kitty had been shut out of the bed room for the night (I know, mean catmommie) cos my asthma was worsening. Well, Ivory wants fed at seven every morning on the dot.

Way back in the 1970’s, we moved house and my cat Merry disappeared after a few days. (It turned out that he had got shut in someone’s garage). After four or five days we were about to give up hope – we had gone out calling (and found someone else’s lost kitten!) with no result. In the middle of the night, my then husband dreamt that he heard Merry crying at the front door. It would have been totally impossible for him actually to have heard this, due to the layout of the house. But the dream was so strong that he got up and went to the front door, and opened it – and there, annoyed and hungry, was Merry!

Hi there, A friend of mine owns 2 indoor cats, and one of them slipped out of the house accidentally last summer. She didn’t discover her missing until the following day, and still hasn’t figured out how she got out. She went out calling for Tazi several times every day, and immediately put up several notices (with pictures) in local pet food stores, grocery stores, etc. As time passed, she continued looking but was beginning to lose hope. On day 13, someone left a phone message on her machine saying that she had seen Tazi in a certain area very near my friend’s home late at night. My friend went there with an open tin of tuna in the late evening, and kept looking out the window every half hour or more. At 3 am, she was elated to see that Tazi had emerged and was eating the tuna. She happily collected her cat, smothered her with kisses, and looked her over. She’d lost a pound, was very dirty, and had some cuts and scratches, but is back at home now. Good luck – I hope you find her.  Like a missing child, soon after the disappearance is when you are most likely to find her, so I would go out frequently and call for her, and bring something that smells really delicious or a sound that she associates with food.  But even if you don’t find her right away, don’t give up.  I’ve also read stories about people whose cats went missing for far longer and who did eventually turn up at home. -Jen

When my eldest, Zoe, was about that age to about 18 months, she would go missing for several days at a time.  She would turn up none the worse, demanding food and petting as though it was my fault she had been away. My 7 m.o., Zog, shows signs of doing the same, wanting to go out at night and not wanting to come back in until the morning.

Put posters up around your neighbourhood – on lamposts, through letterboxes. Contact your *local* radio stations – the BBC local radio where I live will broadcast details of missing pets. Get hold of telephone numbers of *all* the animal shelters where you live, not just the RSPCA, and start ringing. It may be that Dolly has become accidentally locked into someone’s garage or outbuilding, so it really is worth knocking on doors and asking people to check these. Good luck, Helen S

I wouldn’t give up on her yet. My cat Pickles goes out at night and lies on the driveway. She never strays off the property. But once in a blue moon she has to make her ma be miserable by wandering off for several days. I don’t know if she just visits someone else’s house or what. The other thing is that although I’m sure you’ve looked, cats can find some really weird places to hide. If your Mitzi came in right away after they were both let out, I bet something or someone scared them both. Maybe Dolly just found a spectacular and bizarre place to hide. Check out everything, even places you think might be too small for her. A scared cat can make itself pretty darned small. Good luck. Karen Hohne

I am convinced that cats have telepathic powers which they use when they feel the need. — Molly

Oh, yes, I believe that too, especially at meal times! The other morning I was dozing on and off in bed before getting up. It was just before 7 a.m, and kitty had been shut out of the bed room for the night (I know, mean catmommie) cos my asthma was worsening. Well, Ivory wants fed at seven every morning on the dot. And she knows when it is seven – if the bed room door is open, I get headbutts at seven exactly (you can set the clock by her – how she knows it’s time is also beyond me!) and if the door is closed I get scratching and little motley colored paws being pushed through an extremely small gap. Now usually I need to get up to the bathroom then anyway, so feed her at the same time (Ivory now knows she has to wait patiently outside the bathroom and then she’ll get fed). But the other morning I didn’t need to get up so urgently, so when the scratching occurred I called out “Ivory, go away, Mummy’s sleeping”.

Way back in the 1970’s, we moved house and my cat Merry disappeared after a few days. (It turned out that he had got shut in someone’s garage). After four or five days we were about to give up hope – we had gone out calling (and found someone else’s lost kitten!) with no result. In the middle of the night, my then husband dreamt that he heard Merry crying at the front door. It would have been totally impossible for him actually to have heard this, due to the layout of the house. But the dream was so strong that he got up and went to the front door, and opened it – and there, annoyed and hungry, was Merry!

Since yesterday evening, my eight month old ginger cat, Dolly, has been missing.

Do members of this NG think it likely she’ll turn up, or should we start to resign ourselves to the fact she might well not.

Hi there, A friend of mine owns 2 indoor cats, and one of them slipped out of the house accidentally last summer. She didn’t discover her missing until the following day, and still hasn’t figured out how she got out. She went out calling for Tazi several times every day, and immediately put up several notices (with pictures) in local pet food stores, grocery stores, etc. As time passed, she continued looking but was beginning to lose hope. On day 13, someone left a phone message on her machine saying that she had seen Tazi in a certain area very near my friend’s home late at night. My friend went there with an open tin of tuna in the late evening, and kept looking out the window every half hour or more. At 3 am, she was elated to see that Tazi had emerged and was eating the tuna. She happily collected her cat, smothered her with kisses, and looked her over. She’d lost a pound, was very dirty, and had some cuts and scratches, but is back at home now. Good luck – I hope you find her. Like a missing child, soon after the disappearance is when you are most likely to find her, so I would go out frequently and call for her, and bring something that smells really delicious or a sound that she associates with food.  But even if you don’t find her right away, don’t give up. I’ve also read stories about people whose cats went missing for far longer and who did eventually turn up at home. -Jen

It is possible that something startled Dolly and she ran away and couldn’t find her way home. Do carry on a systematic search for Dolly. Draw a map of a ten block area around your house. Go slowly through all of the streets calling Dolly’s name. I sincerely hope that you will find her soon. Jean

When my eldest, Zoe, was about that age to about 18 months, she would go missing for several days at a time.  She would turn up none the worse, demanding food and petting as though it was my fault she had been away. My 7 m.o., Zog, shows signs of doing the same, wanting to go out at night and not wanting to come back in until the morning. I’m sure yours will come back in a few hours.  Its starting to rain here (UK SWEng) , which is usually a good cat homing device. — Smart Alex “Here’s a man who lives a life of danger, Everywhere he goes, he stays.

Put posters up around your neighbourhood – on lamposts, through letterboxes. Contact your *local* radio stations – the BBC local radio where I live will broadcast details of missing pets. Get hold of telephone numbers of *all* the animal shelters where you live, not just the RSPCA, and start ringing. It may be that Dolly has become accidentally locked into someone’s garage or outbuilding, so it really is worth knocking on doors and asking people to check these. Good luck, Helen S

I wouldn’t give up on her yet. My cat Pickles goes out at night and lies on the driveway. She never strays off the property. But once in a blue moon she has to make her ma be miserable by wandering off for several days. I don’t know if she just visits someone else’s house or what. The other thing is that although I’m sure you’ve looked, cats can find some really weird places to hide. If your Mitzi came in right away after they were both let out, I bet something or someone scared them both. Maybe Dolly just found a spectacular and bizarre place to hide. Check out everything, even places you think might be too small for her. A scared cat can make itself pretty darned small. Good luck. Karen Hohne
