Sounds like little VooDoo is in the vicinity.
I've had cats get out and they always stay close.  Hey, who wants to leave a
place that has regular food, warm laps and is out of the rain!
My bet is that you have The VooDude sitting next to you again soon.  You
have my prayers and my envisioning a happy ending!
Good luck!

Subject: Re: [Felvtalk] VooDoo is missing

Well, around midnight I heard my other cat meow and looked outside.  There
was a big yellow cat that I have seen hanging around a black cat.  And, low
and behold there was the black cat too!  However, if it was my VooDoo, he
didn't touch the food I left around front.  Tonight I will try leaving the
food in a more obvious place.  At least if it is him, he won't be hungry!

As for trapping, I am a bit at a disadvantage.  We have a Japanese hardware
store in town, but I don't know if they have traps.  Since I don't speak or
read Japanese, it may be difficult to find.  

Our base police often put out traps to catch the strays.  The problem is if
I ask them to help, I might be committing another kitty to a death sentence.
On base they put them to sleep after 72 hours.  We don't have any kind of
local rescue at this time.  I got some information from another base and
want to see if I can start some kind of foster/rescue program.  There are
strays here and there around the base.   Also, (I know you will all gasp)
people move back to the states and actually leave their babies!  So, at this
point, I hate to ask for traps to be put out.  Although, after another day
or two his wellbeing will be my first priority.

Thanks again for all of your suggestions! ( I will check out the Facebook
groups to see if any of them are local and can help with our other issues!)

Melinda, Fuji and VooDoo

Japan, and I didn't get but a couple hours of sleep last night, I am going
to bed.  I've left open the door that VooDoo tried to come in last night.
There is a bowl of food and some water in the kitchen.  He can hide a lot of
different places.  Fortunately, I am able to lock off that area and keep
Fuji inside.

from this group!  My son's friend left a door open last night and my little
VooDoo escaped.  He is terrified of being outdoors and all attempts to
capture him only scared him more!  We live on a military base and there are
no wild animals to worry about and the speed limit on base is extremely
slow.  My greatest concern is that around 2:00am, he tried to come home and
we absolutely scared him to death trying to get him to bring him inside.
(He hasn't been out since he came to us as a five week old kitten)  I'm
worried that he might be afraid to come home.

send your positive thoughts our way.
