There are lost dog websites that list all the things to do and let you post your lost pet for people to check out, allow you to make flyers, etc.

Do they have the same for cats?

I worry about this all the time with my cats.

www.pets911.com, you can list your dog or cat's information for free, just click on lost or found a pet, then Report your missing pet - add Stinky's information and picture (if you have one). Also you can look to see if anyone found a cat that fits Stinky's description by clicking on "Search to see if your pet has been found"

What To Do When Searching For Your Lost Pet
Losing a pet is very stressful, but don't panic. You need to stay calm to help your pet find his way home. Here is a check list of what you can do when you realize your pet is missing.

Post your pet on PETS 911. If everyone posted to a centralized source, like PETS911, the number of pets who find their way home would skyrocket! More and more people are using the Internet for daily tasks and lost and found pets are no exception. It is not uncommon for us to hear that a family looked for a week, then as a "last resort" posted on PETS911 and got their pet back within a couple hours. PETS911 works!
Create flyers with a picture (if available) and brief description of your pet. Post them at stores, vet offices, groomers, and anywhere else that will let you put one up. Make sure to include a phone number that is always available.
Talk to your mail carrier, newspaper delivery person or anyone who is regularly in your neighborhood.
Go door-to-door to your neighbors with a flyer and ask if they have seen your pet. Some neighbors may be willing to help look.
Put an ad in your local newspaper(s).
Look for your pet in unusual places around your home, including outside storm drains and ditches.
In many cases, pets don't go very far. It is not uncommon for a house cat, for example, to get scared and hide in the neighbor's bushes, too afraid to come out. So be sure to thoroughly search your immediate area before concentrating on areas farther away.
If you have to go to work, or to sleep, you can leave out your pet's favorite food in a dish, luring him with the scent. If you prefer not to leave out food, since it may attract other animals, try leaving a T-shirt or blanket with your scent or your pet's scent. Animals have a much more sensitive sense of smell than humans and it is possible for them to smell it from a distance.
Put a message on your answering machine/voice mail that says, "If you are calling about our lost pet, we are out looking for him/at work/sleeping (or whatever the case may be). Please call us on our cell phone at 555-555-5555."
If you believe your pet was stolen, contact the police or sheriff to file a police report.
Contact the veterinarians in your area. Let them know your dog is missing, and if he or she is turned in to their office and needs care, you will pay whatever amount (or up to a certain amount) to take whatever measures are needed to save his or her life. Give them your phone numbers in case they need to call you to confirm identity or if they need a credit card to start treatment.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, continue to visit your local shelters every day. Don't rely on the kennel attendant's description of an animal; what is brown to one person can be red to another, or tan to yet another. Check the shelters for yourself!

Lou I am sure you already know about these organizations in your area, but I thought I would send you the link anyway. Maybe you can contact them and ask for their advice and/or  see if they would post Stinky's missing signs up at their facilities.  I would also post the signs up at all the grocery stores, vets, bus stops etc.

Good luck to you, I will keep my fingers crossed that you and Stinky will find each other.

Victoria this is such a sad story, I think about Stinky all the time and check here everyday hoping to see a post from Lou stating she found Stinky.

I can only hope Lou took all of our advice and has not even up, miracles happen even outside of IMOM. I pray with all my heart that a miracle has or will happen for Stinky. broken_heart.gif
