Loki is still missing after a week. Last time he disappeared three years ago he came back after 3.5 weeks having lost half his body weight, with a broken jaw, covered in abscesses, and dragging a dead leg. The leg was subsequently amputated. Loki is a stoic little chap who tends to sit and wait things out if he is stuck somewhere. He is not a noisy burmese and is unlikely to call out or make a lot of noise.
If cats are hurt or traumatised they shut down and hide, they are more likely to attempt to move around at night so shining torches into undergrowth or bushes, or into crawl spaces under sheds or decks might mean you can see his eyes reflect.
If he has been hit by a car or injured again and wasn't killed he would have a very limited ability to get himself home again given he is down to three legs. My worry is that he is immobilised and fading away somewhere. If he is shut into somewhere he would sit and wait to be let out.
He could also be stuck - on a roof, in a drain, down a hole or in a pipe. He is very curious. And despite having three legs he climbs trees and gets on roofs!
I have increased the cash reward to $1500 for finding him alive. Even if you have already looked - I'd be so grateful if you can look again.

With everyone staying home, it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be fire-safe. People can find information on our website - fireandemergency.nz...
We’re heading into winter, and with households self-isolating together, there’ll be more cooking at home, and more use of open fires, heaters, and dryers - all things which can increase fire risk.
New Zealanders can be confident that Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period.
Please call 111 if you have a fire, we will ask you whether anyone at the address is self-isolating or has a confirmed case of COVID-19. Where this is the case, we already have necessary measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety including protective clothing, gloves, masks, safety glasses and mask.
