Lost kitten in Bryan, Texas - please help find Goba

My friend in Fort Worth just called me hysterically crying. Her son attends Texas A&M Medical School, and this morning his 6-month-old chocolate point Siamese kitten named Goba darted outside and ran toward the woods near his apartment. The son chased Goba, to no avail. he is swamped with school, but went to his apartment office this morning and left a picture of Goba. I am trying to help in any way I can and am calling animal shelters in Bryan. Goba is microchipped, but not wearing a tag.

Can anyone suggest other things we can do? My friend is frantic. She's a physician in Fort Worth and is beside herself. Thanks.

2. kitten probably didn't go far, tonight and in the early am stand outside and call the kitty

place a reward notice on the closest apartments and ask any outside kids to search for a reward. Kitten will be hungry and looking for a human with food. Listen for the loud siamese voice, good luck!

3. every night, with food

 

I recently lost a cat I loved. She showed up after a month. She was skinny and panicked - I suspect she had been on a journey.

Your friend needs to try calling with food sounds she recognizes every morning and evening. Odds are that she is close, she just needs to home in on the familiar.

Your friend needs to think creatively about what "food sounds" are - the rustling of a bag, sound of cat food pouring into a bowl, cans clattering together, etc.

After she returns, make she he follows a strict ritual for feeding time to instill pavlovian reactions. Every night I call in seven cats and they come running to my voice because I've created a predictable feeding time ritual.
