My wife and I got a cat from the rescue society and fell in love with him. He is part Siamese with the black and white markings and blue eyes. He's a real "talker" too. He was picked up by the animal control people as a stray, so I guess he was used to living on his own in the outside world. He gets along great with our dog who is a 47 pound female Chow/Golden mix who's 10 years old. Both pets would join my wife and I on the pourch on these nice spring days and our cat, Sam, would chase lizards in the bushes. We've had Sam for a year so we know he knows where his bed and food comes from. He'd usually wander off and survey the surrounding grounds but would always return when called. That is, until Friday. He's not returned home since then and we are very upset and worried. He's been neutered so we tink he wanderd off and got lost, not out seeking a one night stand. He has a collar and tag with his name and our phone number on it but no one has called yet. I keep thinking of him and how much he made my life more interesting. And my wife is on the verge of a breakdown. Needless to say, we've become very attached to Sam. We posted "flyers" all around the neighborhood with his picture and our phone number. A friend of mine suggested that I put his litter box outside of our house as he would be able to detect the familiar smell of it from a long distance off, so I did that this morning. If anyone has any other ideas of how to help him find his way home, I would appreciate your sharing them by commenting here. Thanks !
