[Felvtalk] VooDoo is missing

Hello all, It is with a very heavy heart that I am asking for some positive energy 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

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

If possible keep a bowl of his favorite food on your steps/porch so even if he stays out a little while he will get food. Also when you put the food out make a big production of it by either banging the can a few times with the spoon or rattling the bag so he knows it's there. Keep the house

Melinda, My heart is breaking for you!! What comes to my mind first is for you to leave wet food out and maybe that will coax him back to your door. Or maybe you can get a trap somehow and put wet food in it to capture him. Can you post a lost sign with his photo on it to inform the

I would do all of those thing, AND perhaps get an automatic trap with food inside. If Voodoo comes to you, please scruff (just in case) and pick up at the same time, because of being afraid. If you can lock away other cats, I would definitely leave a door open. The problem might be, though,

Put a trap out, line it with newspaper and cover with a blanket or sheet.  Put some food right outside the trap, leading up to it and in the back.   Also put some of your dirty clothes around it as well as some of his dirty litter.  If you have another cat that he is bonded with, put it in a

Thank you for all of the wonderful suggestions. As it is 11:00pm here in 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

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
