DYLAN' S STILL MISSING

I just wanted to thank all of you for your support. I've had missing cats before, and one came back and one did not. I'm hopeful for Dylan though because he ran away before we could even get him in the car -- he was right in front of our house. So, he must be in the area somewhere.

However, we back on some wooded ravines that go for miles in either direction. I sure hope he didn't go back there.

We have done what we can for now, and it's just a waiting game. We put in a Lost Pet Report at our local Humane Society (there's only one), and posted flyers with his picture on all the community mailboxes around here, as well as one at the local vet's office, which is the only one that is close at all.

We've alerted neighbours to look out for him and have set out food in the front and back, as well as some socks with the scent of mama on them (I got this suggestion from a list of things to do when your pet is lost). I sat outside in the back and then the front with the other cats, too and called for him. So hopefully the smells of home will waft his way and lure him back soon.

I just hope that he hasn't gotten tangled and trapped somewhere because of the leash.
I'll post again when there's news of some sort.

Thanks once again for all the prayers and good wishes for Dylan's safe return. It really helps.

I did this to my Meowm one time...slipped my leash. I didn't go far, but it took Meowm two hours of searching for me before she heard me calling from my hiding place. Good luck and we are purring for Dylan.

Have you checked around bushes in the immediate area,in case he tried to hide and got caught in vegetation? I couldn't find a cat once for about 3 days and it was right next door but too scared to meow. Hope you find Dylan soon.

I was so hoping to read he was back already, as were you I'm sure. We are both sending best thoughts and even Mom is purring.

I just know that Dylan is very close to the house! Sit very quiety outside. Don't call him. You might get open some human tuna and put it outside. The smell of that travels quite a distance. If you are outside and quiet, chances are that he will find you.

Sending lots of prayers and purrs.

We are purring like crazy that you'll find Dylan!!! We know he'll come back! And if he doesn't show up in the next few days you'll find him because he will start meowing!!! (In case he really is entangled somewhere) Lots of cats in the CB have been missing for days - sometimes weeks - and showed up again! PUURRRRRRRRRRSSSS

We hope you find Dylan soon.

Our local lost pets dept, suggests making a laminated poster and pinning it to your fence/gate. Usually this makes people stop and read it.

Whenever mum can't find me, she takes out her keys and rattles them, or she takes out a can of fancy feast and a knife and bangs them together. Cause if I am hiding she knows my ears are still working, and usually I am home within a couple of minutes.

Good luck with your search.

Oh, dear! I just found out about Dylan. Gandalf ran off once when we first moved to Georgia. He was gone overnight and I was beside myself. We are all sending "Come home soon, Dylan!" thoughts.
