Sorry about your cat! I posted your message on the FB group, https://www.facebook.com/LostFoundDogs.MetroDC. They posted Gracie and responded with this:
Hi, we shared. Please keep us posted! Just post on the wall with any updates, can send out again as needed. Click see more to see full lost cat info… For quick results: do a quick check of our wall & Craigslist back to day pet went missing (lost/found AND pets sections) to see if your pet is listed. Do an ad on Craigslist in both sections too (may need to change title of ad). Then check animal control right away (okay to call first, but go in person asap, bring them a photo & keep going every few days).
Most indoor cats found *very* close to home. They typically hide in silence right nearby. So, post lots of flyers/signs in your area, talk to neighbors (go door to door with flyers), post on any neighborhood listserves/yahoo groups/newsletters, and search everywhere (sheds, garages, barns, RVs, basements, under bushes, under decks, inside the house, etc.). Can try putting out litter box and wet cat food, this will often lure them. Just the sound of the can opening outdoors has brought a quick response. Animal control may be able to help with a humane trap if needed.
