I hope some of you can help me.
My beautiful cat Buddy has been missing for a week now, he escaped out of his pet carrier outside the vets as the clasp snapped, the vet's is not in his neighbourhood so he doesn't know where he has run off too. I have done tons of posters, leafleting, animalsearchuk, vets, shelters, etc. I've been called out to 6 different sighting, racing out the door full of hope but it is never my Buddy. I've patrolled out over and over and over again, calling his name and tapping his bowl.I live alone and he is my best friend, I can't cope without him. He isn't microchipped as the vet never spoke to me about it before.
We've lived together for 8 magical years and I just can't believe he is not here.
I put a poster outside the main town's supermarket today and a I saw a lady writing down the phone number and said to her it is my cat, had she seen him. She told me that on Saturday, the day after Buddy went missing she saw a cat in an RTA several miles away from where he went missing and the cat died in her arms. Her son came and wrapped the cat in newspaper and buried it.
How can I know for sure if this is my beloved, he never went far from home.
I can't take this pain, being without him, my whole world is completely destroyed. He is all I have. I can't go anywhere without seeing a poster I put up with his beautiful face on it.
I'm just so destroyed, I can't take this.
Please, tell me what I can do.
