Default My girl went missing two days ago.

Two days ago my lil hedgie went missing. OUTSIDE. :/ I live in Florida and so its normally quite hot here but a cold front came in and this just so happens to be the time she disappeared. I have a very nice sized bushy area basically surrounding my whole house and I have searched as far in the that I can get, but the bush is so think that I'm at a loss because Paprika is so small compared to the size of my yard. I left her igloo and a blanket wrapped around the igloo with her scent on it as well as her wheel which I kept dirty so that maybe she may smell the scent and come home. I try to leave food out for her but there's so many stray cats where I live that they keep eating it. I don't know what else to do. My poor boyfriend is also so distraught, my son , him, and myself continue our search for her, she was the runt of her litter and we had her since she was weened and ready to come home. We just want her home and all our attempts are showing nothing.


Is there anything else anyone can recommend that we can do to assist in us finding her or getting her home safely?

with a live animal trap filled with food is a good idea ......just hoping I can trap her and not one of the many of these greedy cats out here.

you might get a cat, but you might get lucky. worse case, release the cat. or put something in the trap not so cat friendly, like baby food. i'm just guessing here, so bear with me.

maybe if you could find a smaller trap, you'd minimize cat captures.

I'd also pepper your neighborhood with flyers. Talk to your neighbors, call animal control. You just never know- someone might have her and have no idea who she belongs to.

Put up flyers around your neighborhood too. If she wandered further than your yard, then maybe flyers will help bring her home as well.

I'm sorry that this happened. I can only imagine your worry. When she comes home and you want to let her roam outside, try using a small animal playpen. You can link a couple of them together, and she'll still have room to run around and enjoy, but she won't run away again.
