I am in bits. Totally out of character. Been up and down with food bowl and dreamies for the last hour and no sign. Shit.

When did he go out?

Does he hunt? My cat has hardly been around the last couple of weeks but we found her not far away patiently watching as she had found a mouse nest under next doors shed

He has free rein to go in and out, but is always the first to come in for breakfast. He is a cat of habit - breakfast, a sit in the garden and then onto the bed to sleep all day. He never seems to leave the garden.

Hope little Ginge comes home soon

Still no sign. I know it is too early to panic but I am. We lost BastardCat in a road accident in May and have had a shitty year - thought things were looking up but am spiralling...

Thinking of you...hope the wee man has turned up? Pillowcase full of Hoover dust at back/front door? Cat litter box at front/back door?

Oh I hope he appears soon. Get home littke Ginge!

Oh no. Thinking of you. Hope he comes home soon.

Maybe go up and some the street giving a shout and ask a few neighbours to check their garages. Maybe been locked in.

I hope he is home now. They are such a worry, esp when they do something out of routine.
I take it he is an older cat, and has been done? We had a ginger tom and he wandered everywhere.

Please update, concerned for you and little Ginge.

My Ginger girl escaped yesterday (never usually wants to go outside) found under a bush confused

Still nothing. Have posted on FB, tweeted and had a number of walks/drives around the neighbourhood. Kids all ready to put leaflets through doors but bloody printer not working. Local vets all have details.

He is chipped and neutered. His dad, Big Ginge, is very subdued.

It's the not knowing that is killing me.

A lot of them do this on the first summer. Keep looking, it's all you can do right now.

Hope you find him safely soon OP flowers

timtam23 Tue 16-Aug-16 13:59:41

So sorry to hear this, hope he comes home soon

DH and kids have leafleted our street and the surrounding houses. Going to send DH out later with a torch and some treats, and scatter Hoover bag contents in garden.

Worrying because we have a fox visiting the garden at the moment - whenever we have seen him he has been having a staring contest with the cats, and I know foxes don't usually attack cats, but you can't help wondering..

Big and Little had a lousy start in life, were confined in one very small room for a long time and then in cattery for three months. This is his first taste of freedom.

Hope Little Ginge turns up safe and well flowers

He is back! Strolled in at 2am with Big Ginge behind him! I like to think he was getting a bollocking for being out so long....

WeirdAndPissedOff Wed 17-Aug-16 07:28:59

Yay! I'm so glad he's back safe and sound!
I wonder if Big Ginge brought him home?

That's great news OP I bet you and your family are so relieved

PosiePootlePerkins Wed 17-Aug-16 07:48:25

Fab newsgrin

Gatekeeper Wed 17-Aug-16 07:51:28

Ohh...what a relief. They are worse than kids sometimes
