Nora is missing

I've had her for a bit over two months, and she hasn't shown the slightest interest in being outside or away from me, Matt and Tank.
I saw her this morning at breakfast, and I haven't heard or seen her since. My roomies went out once today, and they're really careful about watching for cats and shutting doors properly, so I don't see how they could've missed her.
I have a really small house too--only 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, the living room and the kitchen. She won't enter the room where I keep the rats and other small mammals (she's afraid of them), and furniture is scarce everywhere else.

What are some of the weird places you've found your cats?

One time I lost Toby...under my bed. The thing that holds my mattress's up, he found a hole in the cloth that covered the wood part at the bottom of my bed...it's hard to explain, I hope you understand though.
But it was a really strange place for him to be, so make sure you check everywhere in your house, even places you wouldn't think to check. Maybe she's just off sleeping somewhere.
Goodluck on finding her!

I've accidently closed three of my cats in my closet at one time or another. They're stealth kitties when they want to be. You don't see or hear them. All four cats go up under my bed, too.

I've looked high and low for Cinderella before and I've walked into the living room to find her sitting in the middle of the room. I have no idea to this day where she hides.

Good luck! Is there a favorite treat that he knows the sound of? Maybe shaking the can or opening a plastic lid would bring him out of hiding.

My kitties both wear bells, and I'm pretty stealthy myself. There isn't really a treat or sound she comes running for either.

I so hate people right now... some ********* just called and said he had her and hung up on me. Restricted number, how convenient.

this hapened with simba before, a few times. still have no idea where he was. lol.

the closet thing has happened before too. i felt so bad! Boo found her way in there & my mom didnt know & shut the door! But, it was winter, and that closet is against the outside walls and isnt insulated. i heard this very faint noise.. i almost thought i was loosing it! But, luckily she made noise enough that i found her. She felt so chilly though! I just had to hug her & warm her up!

Hopefully you find where she is - i couldnt imagine going all day not knowing, let alone a number of days!

My kitties have places in the house where they disappear and then after I have been calling them and all frantic they just appear- just like Marie's Cinderella.

Many paws crossed that Nora appears soon.

Perhaps it was a cell phone and the battery died.... Hopefully.

You can call the police and report the call. They do have the ability to trace the call, even if it restricted - It's only restricted for the recipients. No telling if they will act though.

I've called the SPCA and filed a report, scoured the area at least 12 times since my first post, tried to ask neighbors (they don't like talking to each other for some reason...) and prayed very hard and had dream after dream that I go outside and she pops out of a bush or something...

Tank keeps walking around looking in all her spots and crying. Here I thought he didn't really like other cats. Even my demon dog Bear is behaving today...
