PLz help my GLP friends. My indoor cat has escaped. Advice?
I have two cat traps in my yard. What is the best bait to get the cat back and how to get the cat to come to the trap. Have not slept as this is a hell of a stress. Thanks in advance for your constructive comments

Leave your door open all day and night especially, enough that cat can sneak in.

Your cat knows his way home but probably can't figure out how to get back inside.

If you know how he escaped, open that back up. If it was a tall window, put something below the open window to help him jump. <-- This is exactly how mine came back (that very day).

One of our indoor cats once fell from the second story and ran off. We saw it happen. She was gone for THREE weeks, when one day she was back, skinny, but alive, meowing at the door!

They are very good at finding their way back.

That cat lived to be 18. (Happened when she was like 2)

Good luck finding your cat.

Re: PLz help my GLP friends. My indoor cat has escaped. Advice?
thanks everyone. What is the best food to attract them to the cage that works? Cannot place litter box outside- have another cat. The cat ran out when I opened the front door. How long before the cat gets hungry to come to the trap? How many days before I call it quits with the traps?

Put things with your scent in the trap and in the yard. Put food and water out. Put posters up with all your cat’s info and put them up in your neighborhood. Post your cat’s info on any local neighborhood Facebook pages. I returned a lost cat to someone that way one time. Call to him in the yard from time to time so he can hear you if he’s near. I’ll do some prayers that your cat finds it’s way home safe.

you could do like people in my neighborhood do, print out a hundred colored posters of the lost cat and hang them everywhere and leave them out for months.

Re: PLz help my GLP friends. My indoor cat has escaped. Advice?
If this just happened it will be a couple of days at least before hunger starts taking over the excitement of exploring a whole new world.

Hopefully he will be back soon, cats bond to places more than people so if he gets scared his instinct will be to return home. Just be patient, give it at least 5 days before giving up on the traps.

Feel for you buddy, I just got a kitten a month ago. Will let them out into the garden eventually but not before vaccinations and neutering. So I am also paranoid about cat getting out before then and he's already got out once but thankfully I could pick him up and bring him back inside.

Hope the little bugger comes back soon.

Of
You use an electric can opener - take it outside and run it

They’ll come to the noise of TUNA not just the smell

A can of tuna fish is very smelly and put beside the door you want them to come to

Tuna. Walk around and call the cat. Make sure the cat is not across the street first. My cat went in to the neighbors garage and they shut the door without knowing the cat was in there. Listen for the cat. Check parking lots. Cats can crawl into the engine compartment and will if it is cold.

Cats when leaving home explore in circles around your home. Slowly expanding outward. If he is ok he’s somewhere relatively close

Re: PLz help my GLP friends. My indoor cat has escaped. Advice?
again Thanks for your advice everyone. I will try the tuna in the traps tonight. Use towels to cover the traps and they have the scents on them. [link to www.pawboost.com (secure)]
