Our cat Roxy has been missing since yesterday around noon. I was trying to get her into a cat carrier to take her to a vet appointment, and she slipped away from her collar and bolted out an open window. She is an indoor-only cat who has never been outside for any extended period, and she is very timid and shy of strangers. We hope she is hiding somewhere near home, but have not seen any sign of her since she escaped. She has a collar and tags, but is not currently wearing them; however, she is microchipped. Roxy knows her name, but is probably too afraid to come when called right now.
Here's the rest of the info:
Breed: Domestic shorthair (probable mix)
Age: 1 1/2
Color/Markings: Black and light reddish-brown tortoiseshell with "split-face" markings (see photo below), yellow-green eyes
Sex: Female (spayed)
Weight: about 11 pounds
Microchip number: [REDACTED]
Last seen: 12 October 2015, 12:15 p.m., South Redmond, WA neighborhood near the Meadows subdivision

ETA (10/16/15): Captain Midnight checked the humane trap this morning, and what to our wondering eyes should appear?
Thanks so much to everyone who helped us get this wandering kitty home again. We are so very grateful to have her back safe and apparently unharmed (aside from double the amount of typical skittishness, which should calm down over time).
I love a good happy ending, don't you?
P.S. Roxy is very affectionate on her own terms. She doesn't much like to sit in laps...
