Sitting on the front steps
We lost him yesterday around 11:30AM in the East Windsor NJ area and have been looking for him since. We're really hoping he's okay or someone took him in but I have no idea what to expect or how to deal with this. It's going to be in the 30s tonight and its raining tomorrow and it rained last night. We last saw him right in our neighborhood at like 3PM yesterday but we haven't seen him since or heard him either. We don't even know if he's in the same neighborhood anymore. I've read so many stories that I can't help but think that he's just right here somewhere under our noses, but it was so so windy today and it was windy yesterday too so I have no idea what to think or how far to go. I don't know how long to keep looking or how to move on. He's our first family pet, we've only had him for a year and a half, he's just a baby. My mom spent the most time with him at home, and I don't know how to help her or what to do for her because all she did was look after him every day and now he's gone and I don't know what I can tell her to do other than just staring at his cage. I know grief takes time, I know Lilou might still come home, I just don't know what to do right now. Any support would be appreicated.
Also, we've put up flyers everywhere, gave them to petco, and tomorrow we'll notify the vets (they were closed for easter). I've put up posts in every online platform I possibly can. I don't know what else to do
