"Afor," DSH, Gray, Sunnyvale - Found!

I received an email one week after the search that Afor had been found just a few houses away from his home. His person insisted that Afor was there the whole time, and never traveled where we tracked him. This person was never on the search with me and his wife, and I explained to his wife that since Afor was an experienced outdoor cat back in Isreal, that he had the capability, skills and tools to make it back, especially since the track we followed during the four hours led us back toward their home before they called off the search at the four hour mark.


Afor is an indoor/outdoor, neutered, three year old, 14 pound, solid grey DSH. He is microchipped, but not wearing a collar. 

His family recently relocated from Israel, and Afor was still being kept inside, but found a broken window screen and escaped. He had been missing for only a couple of days when I was called to help. 

Since we did not know how Afor took off from the property, we had to check the entire block first. Then we found the track leading away from nearby their home. From there it took off away from the neighborhood. To me, it appeared that Afor was chased away from the area near to his home, which would make sense since he was brand new to the area, and the other territorial animals would chase he away after discovering him. 

The search was called off at the four hour mark by his person, and she said she would continue to look for Afor.
