Trent Pictures

Trent, the most recent member of my pet family, has been missing for over 2 weeks- it doesn’t look like he’s coming back.

I have since talked to more neighbors who have all had cats go missing- so they either have indoor cats, or no cats at all.

I have posted a few pictures of Trent – we’ll be having some type of memorial for him this weekend.

He’s very cute and loved to ham it up on camera.

Enjoy yourself- and your pets this weekend

so then you’ll actually get it.

    I am very sorry to hear about your cat Trent going missing. He was a beautiful cat that seems very fun loving. It seems to be best in your area to only have an indoor cat. I have one and afraid to let her out as we have wildlife around here too.

    I had a cat go missing as well. His name was Freeway (he was actually saved off a freeway in California a long time ago). It is kinda sad to not to know for sure what happened. Freeway was old and becoming very skinny. He never usually strayed far beyond the house. I guess we just have to cherish every minute we get with our pets because we never know what may happen at anytime. And try not to yell at them too much, after all cats will be cats (as dogs will be dogs). I am very sorry for your loss. But I know there is a pet heaven where they all go and get to play fetch and have delicious food, have lots of friends and just a great time up there.

    I am so sorry for your loss of little Trent…he’s VERY cute.
    My sister lives in the boondocks of Minnesota and her very beloved Maine Coon Cat, Cody went missing years ago. She still feels the pain. I would always tell her NOT TO LET HER CATS OUT! But she never listened, thus she lost Cody. Now she has acquired more kitties and they live happily ever after inside.
    People who see this. If you have cats DO NOT LET THEM RUN FREE it’s just too dangerous whether in the city or out in the country. I have 13 rescues all of them born feral. One adult male even lived outside for 5 full years; he made the transition seamlessly and now lives, very spoiled and very happily, indoors with us. I NEVER LET THEM OUTSIDE, EVER!!!!!
    If you feel you MUST let them out, build them an outdoor shelter…trust me when I tell you, if you lose even one beloved cat you will change your cat husbandry practices, like my sister.
    When cats stay in…you have peace of mind and there’s NOTHING better than that.

    Hi Andrew… I just wanted to say what a gorgeous kitty Trent was, and that I’m truly very very sorry for your families loss. It’s so hard to lose a beloved pet, but even harder when they go missing like that, because there isn’t the closure there that you need to let them go. My heart goes out to your family this weekend as you memorialize him, and I pray that Trent is happy as a clam in heaven, eating as much catnip as he can, chasing as many birds as he can. May he have peace.

    Hi Andrew,
    How awful for you that Trent is missing. Perhaps you can also put his portrait and story on CatsUnited, maybe there are more people in your neighbourhood on this site and you could help each other finding back your cat. Hope there is not some crazy bloke around like the one that was caught in Miami lately…
    Let’s hope for his return or at least more clarity about what happened.

    My username there is Chrica (I have an English account too, so you can read all about my cats!)

    Best of luck,

    I have this struggle with cats as well. I used to have 5 barn cats and although they were all spayed/neutered and vaccinated, they became infected with the feline aids spread by feral cats that would come onto my farm. I eventually lost them all to this terrible disease. I now have 2 house cats that I take outside for a romp everyday but only when I can be with them to watch them and bring them back inside. That may seem like a lot of trouble but it is worth it for their safety. I am sorry that Trent has gone. I know you miss him.

    Trent looks like a very special orange tabby – especially in that stroller! I know 2 weeks is a long time, but he may yet return. Once I tramped thru the woods around my home, calling and calling for my missing calico, and the next morning she had dragged herself home. She was very sick and had gone off to die, but after a week at the vet – well, she lived another 8 years!
    Don’t give up hope yet………

    Hi Dr Andrew!
    What a Handsome Orange boy Trent is!!! Orange Kitties are the Best Kitties in the world-LOL.
    I say “IS’ because you don’t know for sure that
    Trent has crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge yet.
    It just might be that he’s hiding somewhere or
    he’s hanging out someplace else. A cat that I had
    several years ago (she was born to a feral mom
    and was 4 mos before she rescued) somehow got
    outside and was gone for days, or so I thought…
    A friend of mine came over to help me look for
    her and happened to look in a window well on the
    side of the house that had been covered over with
    boards. There she was, crouched in the corner of
    the window well!!! She must have been there the
    whole time, poor girl! It’s a good thing we found
    her when we did because she had a liver shunt
    and she needed medicine.
    Don’t give up hope yet…Hopefully Trent will find his way back home.

    Hello Dr. Jones – I just wanted to tell you how sorry I am to hear about your cat Trent gone missing. He is an adorable cat with such beautiful eyes and coat, he looks like he was quite a character! I love the picture of him in the stroller, that is really funny and cute! And the close up one that shows how pretty he is. Hopefully we’ll hear that he has returned to you sooner than later, safe and sound, but understand it is hard to go one each day without any closure. Keep your chin up, it is never easy to lose a beloved pet and know that you are not alone and have many supporters to lean on! Take care.

    My daughter had a cat go missing and it was found a few streets away 18 months later. Zoe had a name tag and Telecom gave the people whose place it was around the phone no. on tag. A dog had chased it away and we think it got under a bus which stopped outside home to get away from the dog and got taken away that way.

    Sorry Trent has gone missing. I do have hope for you. I had a Siamese cat that went missing, I never let her out ever. None the less, she went missing. We were living in an apartment at the time in a very busy area. One year later, I looked out of my living room window, there she was just standing there under the lamp post. She did get herself pregneant in her adventures but she came home.
    I know hope is fading, but don’t be surprised if he does come back. Stranger things have been known to happen.

    Trent is a beautiful cat. We have a hugh tabby cat who is orange, black and brown. She goes out in our fenced back yard sometimes during the day. But we don’t let her out when evening approches. I know it has been 2 weeks, but I hope he comes home. We had that happen with a cat we had years ago.

    Trent looks very beautiful. In the 1980’s I used to have a yellow cat that looked the same and his name was Stanley. I had him since he was 7 weeks old.

    I took him straight to the veterinary clinic when I got him when he was 7 weeks old before I took him home, to get him vaccinated.

    The veterinary assistant told me that they didn’t vaccinate kittens till they were 8 weeks old. I told her that I had just gotten him and couldn’t take him home unless he was vaccinated because I had cats that had died from panleukopenia. They had caught it from stray cats that were diseased. Someone gave me a kitten after that and I named her Gloria, but in a couple days she got sick and died.

    So the veterinary assistant explained this to the veterinarian and then she said, he’d make an exception in lieu of the circumstances.

    When I had those cats that were sick, I called the veterinary clinic and said they were all sick and that I didn’t have a lot of money. The man said to bring the cats in.

    It was after hours and this guy walked to the clinic in bitter cold and took the cats’ temperatures and vaccinated them and then didn’t charge a penny, just said to give him a ride home and not to tell anybody and to consider it a Christmas present. He said the cats had a temperature and were very sick and that nature would take its course, (meaning they would die.)

    Another time I took a cat in to get her neutered. The assistant checked the cat and asked me if it was neutered before. I said, “No”. Then the vet came in and she said, “This cat looks like it was already neutered, but she says it wasn’t” Then the veterinarian examined the cat and said, “This cat is a female.” and that it had to be spayed,not neutered. I felt so dumb.

    I thought you wrote earlier that you’d found his orange fur in the woods??? You are right. Good case to show cats should NOT be outside. I learned the hard way too (by injuries, (and flea infestations in the house,etc,not death)to NOT let mine out.
    Just ticks alone are reason to keep them in. I then would take them out on a leash and harness ONLY if I was out with them…until I ran in to answer the phone and my neighbors 2 year old yanked the cat’s tail and nearly broke it. The sprain was so bad it was swollen the size of my arm and he couldnt move it for days. Then the final straw was when the ones I let out on occasion started spraying in the house. One especially so.

    Our vet had a vet-in-training – a WONDERFUL man, Dr. Ertz who now is somewhere in Oregon. He taught me how to retrain him AND told me this was happening BECAUSE I let him out. He said that when you do that they will take the entire yard to be their turf and when they are inside and see another animal on their turf and cannot run them off, they will resort to marking and anxious behavior as they try to police the perimeters of their existance indoors. So for a month I had to keep him in a cage, releasing him for only alloted periods of time in a supervised situation, increasing that daily and NO MORE OUT.
    It worked! No more ovaban or anything else to try.
    Too bad I learned this AFTER he had lymes disease that temporarily paralyzed him and left him severely arthritic at the young age of about 11.
    Dr. Ertz again pointed out that even on my porch, and close to the house, a dog could have walked by and dropped a tick, so that was not wise.
    Since then, all are indoors and surprisingly, even the strays I’d taken in that were upto 3yrs of age of living outside have made no attempt to try to escape. They know where they have it good!

    All my cats have been a joy and a blessing. I can
    see little TRENT is as well. I pray he had a merciful end if that is indeed what happened and if not that he will be home and indoors for good very soon. He looks like such a sweet fellow. My heart goes out to you all. For as many animals that there are in the world, there is no replacing them in the heart. Each is distinctively unique, like people, and each touches our lives in a special way. I’m truly sorry for your loss.

    Hi Dr. Andrew J,

    You should join the “Missing Cat Assistance Group” on Yahoo. A week isn’t really a long time for a cat to be gone. If he got scared they can go into “feral mode” for 21 days or more. People give up way too soon in looking for their lost pets.

    Our black kitty, Chloe, disappeared on October 1, 2004. We put up posters, hired a pet detective (he said someone picked her up and has her), talked to animal communicators, etc… We didn’t see our Chloe Critter until October 3, 2006! Someone has her and calls her “Shadow.” My boyfriend said if the people are taking care of her and she is loved…we shouldn’t force her to come home, because when she left we had her and 2 other kitties. Well, while searching for her, we started rescuing kitties at a local soccer park and fixing them, etc. We have 12 kitties now! Chloe wouldn’t be happy here. We also put up cat-fencing on our little 110 sq ft patio of our townhouse. I have 8 kitties in the garage are part of 12 I rescued last August/September (4 were adopted) and we need to get some of them adopted..or we will end up with 20 and no room for all of them! 🙂 Supposed to be doing TNR, but if they are tame, we fix them using our own money (and I don’t even have a job now) and adopt them or keep them.

    Anyway, I would join the Missing Cat Assistance group. Here’s one link to it. http://groups.yahoo.com/phrase/questionnaire-template.

    Oh, also you should put out food and water. You might have to trap him to get him back inside and coyotes don’t eat cats as much as people think. We had a lady (Lana) that was in the group and her cat, Kitters, escaped from her truck in the middle of the Mojave Desert in September 2007. The cat was missing for 26 days in the desert and there were coyote dens everywhere. Turns out Kitters was hiding out in a 25-ft long tunnel in an outcropping of rocks. Lana hired a pet detective who came from Oklahoma to Arizona and she told her her cat had been killed by coyotes. There was no blood, no collar, nothing. This was a famous pet detective who had been on TV. We told Lana not to believe her. Lana kept looking and a cowboy in Kingman, AZ called and told her he just saw Kitters out on the rocks watching the traffic go by on Highway 395 (think it’s that highway). Lana finally found her and the vet said she wouldn’t have lasted 2 more days. Even though Lana was leaving food, Kitters wasn’t eating too much.

    Oh, and here’s a link to Kat Albrecht’s “Missing Pet Partnership” website. She is the cream of the crop in knowing about Missing pets. Heck, we had a lady dress up in a cat suit in New Zealand for two weeks and hold a missing cat sign during the rush hour. Her cat “Darwin” had been missing 6 months. She finally got a lead from someone who saw the sign and got him back.

    Keep strong and join Missing Cat Assistance. They can point you in the right direction in what to do. I bet Trent is out there! Good Luck and keep looking!

    Please don’t give up on Trent. Our cat Evie has been gone for some times a month at a time. I’ve prayed for her and she would return even when everyone else thought she was dead. However, one day she left and it has been a whole year now since I’ve seen her. I wasn’t sure how to handle it at first. It was tough because I didn’t know what happened to her. I cried a lot and I still do sometimes. I do miss her. It does help for me to realize that my furry friends are God’s creatures. I think that he has a purpose for animals like he does people. You may have an idea if you’ve ever seen animal miracles. I believe I will see her again in heaven if not on earth. If you are a Christian I would encourage you to pray. Though He doesn’t always answer prayers the way we want him to. God cares about the things in our lives whether great or small. I also want you to know… I’m praying for you and your kitty.

    Trent was just beautiful Andrew! What a very sad loss. I know you believe that he has met his fate at the mercy of the local wildlife, but I still think these cases are worth reporting to the police. Sometimes, as happened here recently, some sicko out there in the community takes great pleasure in killing and skinning our beloved cats. Just rule this out as a possibility ok. The perpetrator WAS caught, but the penalty is a JOKE! Wish I could get my hands on him! Praying you have better luck with your present and future fur babies.

    Hi Andrew

    I know how heartbreaking it is when a pet goes missing. All sorts of things go through your mind as to what could have happened to it.

    My cat, Marmie, went missing in October 2006.

    Don’t give up hope of finding Trent, you never know – you might find him again. I hope you do.
    He looks just like my cat Marmie.

    I read of one cat who was rewunited with his owner after 16 years! I couldn’t believe it. Apparently, it was only TWO street away from his owners home.

    Comment to Jane (no 36 comment) who says (quote)
    some sicko out there in the community takes great pleasure in killing and skinning our beloved cats.
    We had a case of that happening where I live in the UK, but these sickos were not only torturing the cats but cutting them up and leaving the bodies strewn around. I felt sick to the stomach. I had lost a beautiful ginger kitten around that time. They were taken to court and got 2 years in prison. On their appeal, the judge must have been a cat lover because instead of letting them off or have a shorter sentence they ended up with 4 years!
    At least, I felt there was a little justice for the cats.
