Yes his bed will have his scent on. (UNWASHED of course. Cats actually have a much better sense of smell than dogs. In the roof of a cats mouth, there is a small tube (About half an inch long I think, which is called a Jacobson`s organ, which enables the cat to analyse different scents. I would also put the scent of the other cats scent too, or his UNWASHED blanket. Paws xd Gizmo is home very soon.

Thanks Janie, I have been trekking through the bushes, I have bites and stings! I've put his bed on the washing machine and my other cat keeps going out so I'm hoping he'll see her or they'll smell each other! does the bed actually work? Do they have strong noses like dogs? X
Check behind hedges/bushes too, bearing in mind that cats can squeeze into very small spaces (Flexible spines) When searching take with you an air freshener which you use regularly as it should remind Gizmo of his home comforts. Paws xd for Gizmo to be home very soon.

Thanks for your comments. I haven't seen the cat that attacked Gizmo for a few days which makes me wonder. I feel physically sick but it's nice to have people caring for us xx
First of all try tips/advice on Malibu`s page no 130326. May be the cat Gizmo had a fight with i s still around,(Sounds like he hasn`t been neutered) and is the more dominant one, and so Gizmo is hiding Meant to say too, that in these instances,the cat will usually come out of it`s hiding, when they think it`s "Safe" for them to do so. Just because you don`t see a cat, doesn`t mean they they aren`t around.Last edited: 2018-06-11 19:35:18 by janiejewel1649
