So yesterday I ordered pizza, and it arrived around 3PM...around this same time yesterday. When I opened the door to pay the guy and get the pizza, Dixon ran out. I coralled him into the house, paid the guy, got the pizza, and that was that. Or so I thought. Last night when I fed the cats around 9pm, I noticed that we only had 6 instead of the regular 7 fur babies show up to eat dinner. I took inventory and realize Zoe, out DSH Hemingway Polydactyl was missing from the brood. Of course we started looking around the house, opening every door, cabinet, checking the nursery (which we keep the door closed on),...to no avail. She was nowhere in the house. I couldn't remember when she would have gotten out except for when I got the pizza. She must've run out on the other side of me when Dixon ran out and I didn't see her. If the pizza guy saw her, he never said a thing. I stayed outside looking for her rattling a cup of kitty food until midnight. She never came home last night.
This morning, I woke up and started looking again. I notified all the nighbors, put out some wet food for her, printer flyers, posted them around our area in the complex, called local animal control, called the Houston SPCA, and even posted an ad on Craigslist looking for her...none of our cats have ever ever been outdoors overnight. I'm so worried about her. I've been going outside checking for her and calling her every 30 minutes all day. As soon as my fiance comes home with the car, i'm going to go driving around looking for her, but that won't be for another few hours.
Does anyone else know what we can do?? Please pray that she finds her way home safe and sound.

Edited to add!!

Glory be!! Tonight at 8:45 we got home from the store. I called Zoe out lous just before we went in for the night, and we went in. While I was fishing in the cabinets looking for something good for dinner, my fiance and I heard LOUD meowing comming from behind the door. At first we werent sure if it was one of the cats inside, but after a couple more meows, we opened the door, and Zoe came waltzing in. With the exception of being incredibly thirsty and a little hungry, she's just dandy!! Thanks for all of the helpful stories and info shared by you guys, and also for the prayers!!! Glad to have my little girl home!!

I'm pleading with all of my LJ friends to say a prayer for Tom. I was finally able to get him to the vet and pay money I don't have to spare to get the minimum treatment I can afford. The vet said this is the worst he has ever seen him in 5 years -

He wants to to do blood work again for organ failure in two weeks. My poor baby has lost almost 5 pounds since they saw him last. He looks so frail. Now, he's not eating and I'm having to force feed him baby food via syringe per the vet's instructions until I can get him back there. My heart is heavy that I may lose my baby boy soon :(

Please, if you will, say a silent prayer for Sir Thomas - I am not ready for the Rainbow Bridge....

cross posted from cat adoration:

I've seen people post this sort of thing to mixed results. I will probably get a lot of negative and down right mean comments, and I am prepared for that in the course of trying to help my baby. So, here goes:

My baby Tom (pictured) has many health issues. Diabetes, which comes with bouts of inflamed pancreas, and tooth and gum infections. My most pressing problem is the latter. I had (or had, not sure right now) a wellness plan that helped defray much the cost of his care. But, that was when I had a job where I could afford all that. In April, I lost that job, was denied unemployment, and it was over a month before I started working again at not much better than minimum wage.

I fear he is having another bout of tooth/gum infection from the way he has been eating, fussing with his mouth and the tell tale smell of his breath. I can't afford to get him to the vet or even go there myself to get the antibiotics the vet usually prescribes - meaning I can get there but can't afford the medicine there or even discount online.

IF anybody could find it in there hearts to help us out, we would greatly appreciate it. I feel terrible, and that I have failed as a pet parent :( But, I am desperate.

I know many of you think these posts to be a scam, but I assure you this is not.

My vet's name is Dr. Jeffrey Mills, DVM
Banfield Pet Hospital

My baby's name is Tom and mine is Tracy Messmore if one needs to verify.
I'm just having a really hard time right now and just want to try to ease his suffering. I can't even afford to go to the Dr. to get my own RX refilled and am trying to get by on cheap herbal alternatives. Any help any body can offer would be most appreciated.

Thanks for reading, and god bless.

Kitty allergies...

I've had my Siamese cat Layla for 5 years, and she's never been sick, but she's got terrible allergies that get even worse in the summertime. She's totally an inside cat, afraid of almost everything outside. I was wondering what we could do for her allergies? She sneezes and sniffles all year round, and I can tell it's hard to breathe for her because we can HEAR her breathing and it sounds like she's all stuffy. Poor thing she has terrible sneezing fits where she'll sneeze like a hundred times in a row and snot will be EVERYWHERE.

Cats A Caterwauling...

Sometimes, my 5 (nearly 6) year old male kitty Tigger who has been fixed for about 4 years starts to caterwauling at night. This usually didn't bother us, but in the past couple of nights he's been doing it for HOURS each night. He did this ALL the time before he was fixed, which was one of the reasons we had him fixed (that, and because he got our other kitty Squeakers (RIP) pregnant). It's been 4 years and he's STILL doing this!! HOW can we get him to STOP?!!!! We can't SLEEP!!!

Finally got my Hemingway Polydactyl! Meet Zoe!

This is our new baby Zoe. She is a little (crosseyed) Hemingway Polydactyl Siamese mix.
I have ALWAYS wanted THIS particular kitty, as soon as I met her years ago, I just fell in love. I had been asking for her for years, and now my dream has come true!!
Originally, she was my fiance's sister's, but she couldn't keep her anymore, and so she gave her to a lady she worked with, but her meds reacted badly and now she has an allergy to her. The lady gave Zoe back to my future sis in law, and she called my fiance the other day asking if we could take her. Since our kitty Squeakers passed away about 3 weeks ago, the house has been pretty quiet, and the other 6 kitties hadn't been the same, so since we had room, we said yes!!

She's been with us since Friday and the first day, she went haywire, hissing at the cats, etc., not eating, and being mean. We've given her time to get used to our place, and showed her the litterboxes, and she seems to have calmed down and is getting along better with the other kitties, and they are adjusting to her. She's a very vocal, warm, sweet girl and i'm so happy to have her after all this time!!

...So yesterday, Mark put Squeakers outside because the cats had run out of litter and she tried to pee outside the box. He didn't know there was no litter and I was waiting on my check to come in yesterday morning so I could get them more litter. In the meantime, Squeakers ran away, and was found on the freeway near our house by a lady who said she saw her tag from the freeway. How this was possible, we don't know. Who could see a very small cat tag on a dead cat while driving 70 on the freeway is beyond me, plus, normally, noone stops to look at dead animals on the side of the road. We think this lady may have catnapped Squeakers, and she jumped out of the window trying to get away, and was hit by another car. Peggy (my roomate) called with the news, and Mark told her to go pick her up in a bag, and put her in the freezer until we got home. We've decided to bury her here in the yard next to us, but I don't want any of the other cats to see her. I don't even want to see her. I feel like such a terrible parent.
So now i'm only a parent of 6 babies.

RIP Squeakers, you will be missed. Love, your babies, Moe, and Daisy and Tigger too.

Does anyone know of any pet insurance that offers group discounts? We have 7 furry felines and would like to put them all on a plan, but we have so many and it gets expensive!
