Start your search for your missing cat right away. Check your home thoroughly, including closets, under furniture, and in any hiding spots.
Expand your search to your neighborhood. Talk to neighbors, post flyers, and ask if anyone has seen your cat.
Cats are more active at night. Use a flashlight and search for your cat when it's quieter and darker outside.
Leave out some of your cat's favorite food or treats near your home. The scent may attract them back.
Contact local animal shelters and provide them with a description of your cat. They may have picked up a lost cat matching their description.
Post about your missing cat on social media and in online pet communities. The power of the internet can help spread the word.
Don't lose hope. Many cats return home even after being missing for several days. Keep searching and remain positive.
