Best wishes for tonight
Everything crossed for you, but I have faith you'll be reunited.
Good luck tonight xx
Hope all goes well tonight, fingers crossed.
Topping up the good luck vibes. Sure we'll all keep popping back here to see any updates. I've god this weird image in my head of you sitting on a grass verge on a sleeping back with a whole array of cat chatter's heads looking over your shoulder.
Remember patience and don't do any thing to spook him. He will still be in the area. He will have found a dry comfortable safe hiding spot.
He had a fare bit to eat last night so he will be weighing up safety versus food tonight. If he doesn't come out tonight don't worry. Certainly try and keep your activities to a minimum in that area.
To wold creatures lots of activity, leaving food calling his name can all attract predators ( he doesn't know there aren't any) so lots of activity and toing and froing is a bad thing.
Ironically you have to act like a predator. Stay quiet, stay out the way bide your time and don't make any moves that will frighten him. If you fail at grabbing him you reduce your chance of doing so next time as he will be more cautious.
Don't let your worry and frustration try and hurry things. You will get him back and look back on this episode in a few months with relief and an extra treat for him as you both cuddle up on the sofa together.
I suggest you just put the trap out with super yummy smelly and tasty food quietly and quickly and retreat. No hanging about trying to see him or calling him. That's scary predator behaviour and won't relax him.
Once he thinks it's all clear he will eventually come out. Maybe not tonight but he will. Then you will have your lad back again
Good luck for tonight. I hope you get him and can get him home where he belongs. xx
Paws well and truly crossed here. Sending positive thoughts for him to wander into your trap.
Thank you everyone! I’m hoping tonight is the night but of course he may well not be desperate for food tonight. But I’m hoping and praying. Just sat in my kitchen practising the cat trap making sure I know how to set it easily! Hurry up and get darker...
Only now catching up on this thread: my heart was in my mouth since reading that you found him.
I really hope you catch him tonight. Will be lurking around here waiting for updates xx
Someone on the road has just text me to say they’ve seen him! In the exact same place as last night so he’s around still. That’s a great start
Blimey your nerves must be shot! Best of luck OP, I'll keep everything crossed for you x
I’VE GOT HIM!!!!!!!! He’s in a safe room with food water and litter. Hiding but home. I can’t believe it
Oh and a bed of course!
Brilliant, so happy for you!
Oh what fantastic news! Did he go in the trap or did you grab him lol! So happy for you! Well done.
Amazing!! And so soon too, well done you!
Walked straight into the trap!! Worked perfectly
