cat-on-motorcycleHow a cat behaves when its lost depends on the circumstances.  If you’ve recently moved and your cat isn’t familiar with its new surroundings, it may run off and try to return to its’ old home.  That’s a common scenerio.  If the neighborhood dog has been chasing it, its probably hiding somewhere close to home.  If a cats been abandoned, they will go into protective mode seeking shelter in a good hiding place.  Many times when a cat has gone missing, it’s owner will find it in a place that it had been previously investigating.  A basement, an attack, a closet or a garage where it got trapped. Cats rarely stray far.  If yours is lost, start a search right away.  Start with the house, then the yard and the neighborhood. Its most likely nearby. If it got out of it’s cat carrier and you’re not close to home, you may not be so lucky!
