My cat is back! He had been gone for 5 days. He drank for 40 minutes and then found the cat that I had bought from a rescue just the day before. They hated each other. I brought the other cat back-the rescue was so mad at me . My cat isn't talking. But, he is missing a claw on a back leg( a bloody deep whole) and all of his claws are dull.
If he's not fixed - it's time!
Otherwise just keep him home. Poor guy. Must have been shocked to find a new face in the house. But with a broken heart - I can see why you did that.
If he ever gets out again - a good trick is to put the litter box outside. It helps them find the house. Nose first with cats as well as dogs. They say they aren't usually more than 4 yards away from your own.
However if he's not neutered? No way of knowing.
Oh, your poor boy. I'm so glad he made it back to you and I hope he's on the mend. I bet you are relieved. It's starting to get cold out, so it's just in time he came home.
Do you normally let him out or did he sneak out this last time? I hope he's an indoor cat that happened to get out. Well, I also hope he doesn't have the desire to go out any time soon.
