I think she may have discovered older cats flap earlier having shown no interest previously. Her brother is crying for her. I have been around the neighbourhood shaking her treats and whistling her call. She is five months old and has been inside all that time. She seems to have made her bid for freedom in the dark. I feel awful. Do you think she can come back?

At five months she's probably just exploring. Don't feel awful, I'm sure she'll be back. She might be checking out the local toms tho wink

Found her at 2am in the front garden. She has an appointment to be neutered soon so when she has got over that she can explore all she likes.

You might want to call the vets this coming week and see if they can neuter her a bit earlier - there is a chance she escaped in a bid to mate if she has come into season...may be better to get spey done asap in that case before you have a house full of kittens! Lots of vets suggest 6months on to neuter but more and more are doing from 4 months old so there is no real reason for them not to get her done asap from a medical point of view. Have worked with the cats protection league for a while now and doing an "early" neutering policy with them from 4mth old, and it works really well and cats recover just fine even so young.

my 5 month old kittens have both just been neutered and were fine. The vet weighed them to make sure they were heavy enough and they were.

We too have a girl and boy and they are very close and are always snuggling up together. He had grebbed her a couple of times on the back of her neck so was obviously starting to "mature". Bless him
