There are a lot of trolls on here who clearly don't understand how important cats can be to their human companions. Don't worry about them, people will say anything to strangers on the internet.
True, thank you

Cats do this. And when he comes back (which he will) he'll just look at you like 'what...what's the fuss about', and then expect a plate of prawns or something :laugh:

Update us as to his whereabouts, won't you? Tag me in if you remember

My friends cat was missing for 9 days and appeared yesterday outside her house. Don't give up hope. Put up posters everywhere. Go out looking for him as much as possible and call the local vets to see if he's been taken in. I've had an indoor cat go missing before and he'd scaled my fence and had been locked in next doors house. I hope he returns asap for you.

any news on your cat??
We put him on a few Facebook groups in my area and we’ve had quite a few comments and support.
One lady from near me has seen a tabby cat in the last couple of days at this woods near us.
It’s the first time she’s seen a cat on her walks.
Me and my partner searched the area but the weather is rainy so I doubt he’ll come out until it’s stopped raining.
One lady has offered to lend me a trap so I might use that now we have an area to look around. I’m going to get some sardines and leave his bed and what not in there

When (fingers crossed) he comes back, you need to be more responsible. I don't say this to be cruel, but I have a cat too, and you have to protect them. He has no collar and he's not microchipped, and you let him out on his own when he doesn't really know the area that well. If (god forbid) he'd been in an accident and been killed, the person who finds him won't have a clue who he belongs to. There will be no way he could get back to you.

I really hope he comes home - to be fair, cats do this from time to time. Sometimes they just disappear for a few days and then stroll in like nothing's happened. Do you live anywhere near where he used to live? He might have gone back there if he could smell anything that was familiar. So perhaps check with the place you adopted him from?

Please let us know if he comes home! I would hate this to happen to my cat.

Hiya
I’m not sure if he’s microchipped. I’ve only just registered him at the same vets in our area. I’m going to find out if he’s microchipped from the previous owners - I shouldn’t see why not.

No, we don’t live close to the previous owners. I’d say it’s a 20 mile drive to them.

He’s spoilt rotten and we’ll looked after at home with us and it was a silly mistake.

I pray every night that he’s safe somewhere and comes home when he thinks it’s suitable for him

Thank you for your concern by the way x

Let me know if there's any news. I've never had a cat run away so these other posters have been far more helpful then I was. Seems like you don't need to worry too much 🤞

Go round and ask your street neighbors if they've seen him - cats often turn up at other people's houses and get comfy there, whilst the owners are oblivious to where it's come from and look after it until someone turns up.

You could also put fliers up on lamp posts further afield - or if you have a Neighborhoods account you could post on there with a photo etc.

However (and I don't mean to upset you but you should be aware of it) If you're next to open land, there's also the dangers of foxes and badgers and owls and things.

I don’t think he’s gone that far to the open land. There are a few gardens and stuff so he might be getting fed and be comfy around others gardens and stuff.

Thank you for your support
