Today, I agreed to catsit for a friend. Her cat rode back to my house sitting on my shoulder in the car. As soon as I opened the door, he jumped out and ran off into the woods. It's been 2 1/2 hours and not even food will entice him back to me. FML

Losing your friends cat really sucks and I hope you get it back. However, it should've been transported in a kennel. Keeping a loose animal in the car, especially riding on you while driving, is dangerous, they hit you in the wrong place or freak out and it can cause an accident. A crate also would've prevented it from escaping when you opened the car.

Get ready to start apologizing to your friend. I'm with #6. Pets need to be transported in carriers to avoid this exact situation. Your friend should have given you one.
