Hey guys, I need y’alls help. While my girlfriend and I were carrying up groceries from the car to our house last night one of our two indoor cats managed to run outside. We searched for hours with flashlights, and then again all day today (this was certainly not how I had pictured Christmas, that’s for sure ). We’ve put clothing with our scent on 'em and her litter box out by the front door, as well as some periodically reheated wet food to try to draw her in. Still no luck.
Now, we live in a fairly remote area with plenty of coyotes and other wild animals around, so my main fear is her getting eaten if she doesn’t come in soon. I’ve taken care of as much as I can on the mundane side of things by talking to neighbors and giving out flyers, and I just did a ritual with offerings to the Angel of Lost Things to help bring her back, but frankly we’re both pretty emotionally distraught (we got her as a kitten and she’s family to us) so it was hard to concentrate and effectively calm the mind enough to hear any kind of response.
Any advice for helping bring our kitty home safe and sound? Her name’s Akira and here’s her picture:
