We got a call from a neighbor about a "large cat" matching the description. We zoomed over there, but it was a good quarter mile away from the house. Searched for an hour to no avail. I have a hard time believing he would travel that far--and it's across a busier street. Everything I've heard and read says they stay very close to home. But, of course, we'll check out any and all leads!
I placed some used litter in the front and back yards, baited the trap with tuna, laminated a sign and staked it in the front yard, and filled out two online reports (lostmykitty and petkey.org). I contacted the last two houses on the street and gave them a flyer.
I went to the local shelter and the emergency vets today, and a friend went to another shelter. We got a little snow so I searched around the house outside too but could not see any tracks.
Sigh. It's getting so cold tonight. :-( Stay safe, Tucker boy.
