Cat has gone missing.

It's been 3 days. He went at about 10PM on Wednesday. All my 4 cats go out, but they're always back in. He normally comes back in, or stays in the garden. Before he vanished he was acting strange. He was behind the door, I called him, he came up to me, then jumped in the air, hissed and ran down the stairs. His mother is Feral and we've had him since he was really young, we've trained him to become a proper cat. He has never done this before, and I'm really worried.

I've gone out to call him, put posters up, phoned around at Vets and Kennels but nothing

He is 22 months old, and not a friendly cat. He's also a hunter, and has NEVER done this before.

Don't give up. Put food out for him. Keep looking and calling. We found a cat after looking for 6 weeks. It had never been outside. Don't give up hope.

Sprinkle some of his used kitty litter around the outside of your house. Put a "lost" ad on Craigslist. Look for him at night using a flashlight so you can see the reflection in his eyes.

One came back, but not the one I'm talking about in this thread. We suspected her to come back..

With the one that's missing, when my mother would say "give mommy kiss" he'd tilt his head and let her.

I had a cat go off for about 2 weeks, and then showed up as if nothing happened, a bit thinner tho. Don't give up hope. His behavior sounds very strange before he left, as if maybe something wasn't right physically.....being in pain? or something weird like a burr caught in his belly fur that poked into him and made him jump? It could be anything.....sorry. I hope he comes back as he doesn't sound like a cat that would approach or let strangers pick him up. Good luck!

What has worked for my group with a missing skittish cat is to set a covered hav a heart trap with food in it, in the area last spotted. Keep a constant eye on the trap so you can retrieve it once your cat is caught in it. Have your vet on stand by to bring him in.

Good Luck
