"I opened the back door to check on the dog who I'd just let out to go potty. Maya took that 2 second opportunity to make a run for it, and it happened so fast I couldn't grab her. That whole evening my neighbor and boyfriend looked all over the yard and in the woods but no luck.We went back the next day looking with no luck. I called local animal control, created flyers, posted everywhere on social media, put her litter out and anything we could think of. A few days later we put some food out hoping that would lure her back as well as her crate with a blanket inside for her to curl up in safely.The next few days friends, family and neighbors helped look for Maya, but still nothing. Over the weekend, we put up flyers and expanded our foot search. Every day, I'd call for her both out back and out front of the house, doing a few foot searches after work myself.Finally, last night, exactly a week from the day she went missing, I heard a noise at the kitchen window. I went to the back door to check things out. What do you know? Maya was sitting at the bottom of the stairs looking up at me with her big eyes, debating about coming inside. Well, the dog got excited and made an attempt to get out which scared Maya away AGAIN!So we put some wet food out in the back of her crate and stayed inside and waited for her to come back. This morning, my boyfriend was letting the dog out to potty and he noticed that the can of food we put in the crate the night before had been out and was empty. The dog then went to sniff the crate, and he heard a meow. It was MAYA!I got a bunch of shares from my Pawmaw alert and even made a new friend out of it. Pawmaw helps get the word out to a huge group of people I wouldn't have been able to reach before."
