Next time he comes around - and he probably will if he can find his way - don't scare/chase him. Take his toy, the food he likes (he will be hungry) and SIT down somewhere where he can see and hear you. Talk to him, put the food out, rattle the toy, just talk like you did when he was home and let him come to you.
If he doesn't come around, go where you think he may be hiding and do the same. DON'T go after him. He is freaked out and needs things to look, smell and sound as normal as possible to lure him back. Good luck. Kat On 6/24/11, Melinda Kerr <msk...@me.com> wrote: > Hello all, > > It is with a very heavy heart that I am asking for some positive energy from > this group!
