No News

Putting up signs today and calling the local vets to see if anyone dropped his off. Hopefully the Soft Claws will tip them off that he's not a stray.
BabyBean sums it up at the moment. Thank you for all of your kind words, trying not to leak around the littleBeans, KidBean is really upset by Monty's 'leave'.

Please try the following, I have heard that it works. Put some clothes out that you have worn that day, the cat might sniff them out. Early in the morning and at dusk go out and call him, and then stay quiet. Apparently most cats that are lost are not far away, but might be frightened, and calling non-stop might not bring them out. I am so sorry he is missing, I am sure you are doing everything to get him back, but these tips might help also. Sorry if you have already heard of them, I don't want to teach my grandmother to suck eggs, but it might help.

Spirit and Ezra and Momma say... PLease come back Monty! We can't bear the thought of you not being here. We know you are somewhere safe and probably scared, so please just trust the people and make it home safe.

Captain Jack and Dante said...

The first thing we had to do this morning was check in on Monty. We've also known kitties to dissapear for weeks and then come back. Don't loose hope. He may be back anytime!!

Riley & Tiki said...

Oh No!! We are purring and purring that Monty Q comes home soon.

Maggy & Zoey said...

Thoughts and prayers are being sent your way in the hopes that Monty will find his way home, and do so soon...

Angus said...

My mom and I are purraying and purraying very hard hard for Monty to hear you and come out of hiding. Also that if someone has let him in that they will see your signs..Please come home Monty, our eyes are leaking for you.

cyclone cats! said...

Still thinking about you and your family, Monty! We hope you find your way home soon!

Dragonheart said...

I'm sorry to hear that Monty is still missing. :( But there is hope! When my mom was growing up, one of their cats, Princess, managed to slip out and no one noticed. She was in indoor-only cat. After looking and calling for her for many days, they finally were worried that she was lost for good. Well, SIX weeks later she showed up on the doorstep, a little thin and dehydrated. They took her immediately to the vet, and she was otherwise fine.

I hope that Monty won't be gone as long, but just to let you know that if you don't find him right away. there is hope.

Purring and praying for Monty to be found quickly and safely!

jane said...

This is such a hard time for you, I know you are doing all you can to find him/encourage him home. Keep topping up the dust bunnies, maybe extend where you put them to around the yard. The stinky clothes idea from Hendrix and anon is a great suggestion too. I feel for you, and send you love :) xx

PS: MONTY COME HOME NOW!

The Cat Realm said...

OH s...!
Don't give up! Remember Luna - missing for 6 weeks and then found!
Put up pictures of him everywhere, maybe even the local paper,hand out flyers, we will all keep on praying!!!! Make sure if he comes back someone can let him in if he doesn't have a cat door.
If he is our frightened he might be in hiding and even you can't coax him out. Keep looking, and with all the help from the blogosphere he hopefully finds his way home soon!!!!!!!

Smeagol & Strider (Mystery & Gizmo too!) said...

We're not sure if anyone mentioned this yet, but maybe he got confused and tried to go back to where he used to live? Do you or the shelter know where that was (at least the general area)? Mom thinks maybe that's what I'm tryin' to do when I sneak out.

-Strider

Please come home Monty!!

Purrs and purrayers and love to you all.

Daisy said...

Oh darn, I was hoping for good news this morning. Seeing Babybean cry makes my eyes leaky, too. I am sending my strongest purrs and navigational signals to Monty.

A naybor's cat spent the nite in our garage once, but he was in no hurry to go home even when Mom founded him! He walked out of the garage an sat in the driveway for a baf. Purrs an purrayers!

Tybalt said...

I am praying and purring for Monty's safe return. I hope he makes his way home soon. Purrs and headbutts to you. I know you are missing him lots and are worried about him. When he comes home he'll have to have a concert, and every kitty will listen to him without earplugs.

Purrs and Prayers

Gemini said...

The Almost Dad put our treats along our yard so I would smell the food and come back. We probably had lots of happy raccoons, but maybe it worked.

More purrs for him to come home.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Most indoor kitties won't go far from home. You might try putting out some tuna -- the smell tends to travel better than cat food. Leave his bed/blankets where he can see them. Chances are that he is very close to home. Try sitting quietly outside. Don't call him because this might scare him more.
Here are a few websites with good tips:

Skeezy said...

I'm just sick over Monty's disapeerinse. I'm purraying as hard as I can that he comes home safe.

Anonymous said...

I hope he is microchipped so when someone finds him he can come home. Or possibly that HOME AGAIN system that I keep hearing about. You call them and they too contact everyone.

All I know is my heart fell to my stomach and now my stomach hurts when I think of Monty missing..COME HOME!

I like the Clothes idea...

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

Please come home Monty! We all miss you and we're worried about you! Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Fat Eric said...

Oh, we are so sorry to hear that Monty is missing. Keeping paws crossed and sending loud purrs that you find him soon.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Keep up the hope! I liked the suggestion the anonymous poster made, to put out clothes you have worn and Monty may seek them out. Put food near the clothes, too.

My heart goes out to you, my dears -- I am so worried about Monty, but it's very, very likely that he will come home soon, safe and sound, and I will purr with all my might until that happens and Monty is home, safe and sound!

Much love and purrs and snuggles to your family from Marilyn and her Mom.

Chairman Mao said...

We Ballicai and our beans are purrin as hard as we can fur Monty to come home SOON and SAFE. Lots of good suggestions to try -- he might be hidin somewheres cause he's scared and maybe if you put out some yummies and stuff that smells like you close by the housie he will feel easier and will come out of wherefur he is hiding.

Go home, Monty! Go home where you are loved and safe! Our love and purrs are with you!

Love and kittyhugs and hopeful purrs from MaoMao!

Radcliff, Allie, Luna & Ozzie said...

Hey, Monty. You grab your tail in your paws and drag it back home ASAP.

If you haven't talked to the neighborhood kids, do so. They know more about what is going on than most people think, and this is an easy, non-threatening way to spread the word that the this kittie has a home.

Team Tabby said...

We are adding our purrs 'n prayers that Monty will return home soon!

Vincent and Mike said...

Oh Monty, we came to check on you and hoped that you would be home by now. It makes us very sad to hear that you haven't come home yet. Just try to think really hard about home and we think you can find your way back.

Henry Helton said...

He has got to come home.

Queen Snickers said...

Like many messages here, we had friends who had a cat that got out for a few weeks then just turn up back home not the worse for his adventures. Don't give up hope!

Anonymous said...

Have you checked all the closed garages and places outside where he might have gotten stuck. I work friend of mine, whose cat was missing over a week, finally found him in a garage. He found his way in and couldn't find his way out. Or, maybe he's stuck someplace in the house that you can't hear. Maybe an attic, a basement crawl space, opening in the basement. I'm sure he'd howl, but maybe he's too tired to!

Jan said...

There are some good tips for finding a lost cat in these comments. And it is true that Monty could have become locked in or stuck somewhere and you can't hear him crying. We've heard lots of strange stories about lost kitties turning up around the house. It is amazing where they can turn up.

If he did get outside, be sure to check any local animal shelters - not just by phone but IN PERSON -- daily! If you walk or drive the neighborhood, it is vitally important you carry a pen and a pad of paper so you can leave your contact information with anyone you talk to.

We all have our paws crossed and are praying you find Monty safe and sound - SOON.

We keep checking for news and keep seeing the same thing. No news. We are so sorry. We want Monty to go home now! Right this instant so you and Kidbean don't cry your eyes out. We know mom and the Boy would be a wreck if we did anything like this.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Oh dude, Monty Q, you gotta come home soon. It's gettin' cold these days and you don't want to be away from the kibble bowl for too long. We are all worried about you.

We keep checking for good news. Jan has good ideas too. Also, maybe leave a line of food dishes filled with stinky food up to your door. Maybe he'll sniff them out and find his way home. Leave all the outside lights on so he can see well.

We're just trying to think of anything and everything.
