    Around here if a cat goes missing it usually means the coyotes got him.

    Maybe we don't want to know what he was up to. LOL Give him an extra treat from all of us.

    Know you are thrilled. I had my cat go missing for over 3 weeks once in Orlando. I threw his bowl and everything away. Then he showed up fat and sassy as ever. I felt someone had taken him into their home thinking he was available. So we put a collar and with owner ID info on him. My theory is that he peed in their home like he had in ours and was thrown outside. That was the reason we put him out doors to begin with. He was part time in and part time out but when he got in a fight that ended up costing us 1000.00 to save him, he once again became an indoor cat and remains a fat and sassy indoor cat today.

    How wonderful. They are just like our children. And it is heartbreaking when something bad happens. So glad yours is a good happening

    How wonderful for you. My daughter's cat got into a workman's truck and was carried off. Nearly 2 months later, he appeared, emaciated and with bloody paws from walking home. Have no idea where he had been nor what he had been through, but he was so happy to be home again, not to mention the kids and my daughter.

    Glad he is back home.

    My mil is romancing a cat with treats on a china dish right now. He is a lovely Tuxedo cat who lives a couple houses along. He knows a good thing. When his family is out for the day he has a warm welcome with my mil. She knows where be lives, but is happy to have the company during the day. He goes home when he hears he people's car arrive. They know where he spends his days.

    In 1993 we had a starving male (intact) grey tabby show up at our house. We called the SPCA, Pound etc, but nobody had reported him missing. We had him wormed and he started to gain weight. When he was at a healthy weight we had him neutered. We called him Tom (he was a tom cat when he arrived) and referred to him as our stray cat the 14 years he lived with us. The vet figured he was 18 months to 3 years old when he moved in, so he had a good long life with us.

    I tell the Tom's story so people will know that sometimes the missing cat winds up living the good life, just with another family. We tried to find his owners, but they never reported him missing, at least locally.

    I know exactly how you feel. I'm glad it only took 3 weeks! Our cat went missing in July. She somehow got out of the house when we were packing the car for a long weekend trip. When we returned the food, water and litter boxes were exactly as we left them. We searched inside the house, outside and the neighborhood for weeks. Halloween afternoon when the kids were out all over the neighborhood, 2 girls came by our house with a cat that they said they found across the street! It was ours! Took her to the vet the next day - she had lost 4 lbs, had a tick, and worms, but all in all for an indoor cat for 3 years (when our daughter had her, she was an indoor/outdoor kitty). The vet said her previous outdoor experience probably was why she survived. I'm beginning to believe that cats don't do well at recognizing the outside of their homes.

    Great news! I once had a sweet lover boy cat who went missing for several months. A few people said they saw a large white cat around. I said it couldn't be him because he'd be home if nearby. Low and behold, the weather changed in the fall and the cat showed up at the door late one night. My DH brought him to me in bed and boy was he full of purrs and love. It is wonderful when they come back to us.

    So glad your fur baby is home. Maybe he took a vacation or like the other poster said he found a love. Who knows about the secret lives of cats?
