I think I recall when Basil was missing.   :hug: :hug:

Having stood where you are now, my heart goes out to you.  Am sending the strongest possible vibes for Oliver and hoping you'll be reunited soon.  I truly wish that for you xxx

I have been frantic when one of mine has been missing for a day, so I do sympathise. :hug: :hug: :hug: I do think that you are doing all that you can do. Praying for Ollie's safe return and sending 'Get your Ar*e home' vibes to him and hugs for you and yours. :care: :care: :care: :blow kiss: :blow kiss:

thank you Jezbell, Ollie is chipped and I have informed the company that he is lost. I should mention that I live in France which tends to add a layer of difficulty to things - language,  plus the French tend not to think of pets as family members, especially cats which they think are expendable!  I have also told the vets.

Sorry to hear this, I've been through it myself and I remember how awful it was not knowing where he was or what had happened. (He came back after two weeks, looking thin and bewildered!)


If Oliver isn't chipped, you could try phoning the local cat rescues and vets in case he's been handed in.


Plenty of missing cats turn up weeks, even months later so try to stay positive.
You can't change the world by rescuing one cat, but for that one cat you are changing its world.

Oliver missing - nearly 2 weeks now

I am posting this just to get things off my chest. My 13 year old cat Oliver has been missing for 11 days now. He has never done this before. The longest he has stayed out is 24 hours until a few months ago when after nearly 48 hours we tracked him to a nearby house where he had obviously sneaked in then freaked out when the was found by the people. They knew we were looking for him so came to tell us.  I subsequently found out that he had also sneaked into the house next door one day and just casually walked out of the bedroom into the living room then outside.  naturally I am now completely freaked out imagining that he is now trapped somewhere and I can't get to him in time.  He wears a radio- frequency collar which is how I found him the first time but this time, it is not responding when I have searched for him. he may have lost it or it may not be working or, he is just out of range.  I have posted flyers through mail boxes asking everyone to please check he is not trapped in a garage or shed etc.i have also followed-up in person as much as I can. There are no businesses around us, only houses so I hope wherever he is the manages to escape before it's too late.  I am searching his known territory daily and calling for him but essentially I am just praying that he manages to escape and come home. My other cat Basil went missing 5 years ago and came back after 5 weeks - I suspect that he too was trapped in a neighbours basement despite my physically looking there twice in the first week. During Basil's absence I made myself ill with worry so this time i am trying to be positive - maybe Ollie has just got a bit lost or is having an adventure.  I could really do with some good vibes right now and please send them to Ollie too.
