Hi my cat always comes back home at 7 ish after his last wander outside of an evening. He hasn’t appeared despite me calling him. He was out for longer than usual today but came back at 4 for his tea. I let him out again afterwards but really wish I hadn’t now. Any advice please for things I can do before I go to bed for the night or if I need to just get a grip and keep a window open!
Thanks, will do that now, there is a window so I’ll leave that open. He’s never stayed out so long before but seemed fine at tea time. Hopefully he’ll appear overnight. So worried but need to try to sleep!
glad he is back, wee bugger!! The better nights appeal to their inner lion and they can pretend to be SImba or Scar prowling the Badlands, instead of idiotcat in a suburban garden with only a compost heap for excitement!
Both of mine were out until 11 last night but as pp said, don't feed them too early on a summer evening,and they'll be back
They came in as the dog was out for his pre bed wee, he was so excited he "found" the cats he celebrated by nearly eating a slug, so apols to any neighbours who heard me! "eeewww no no NO! that is disgusting, filthy beast!" "LEAVE IT!"
I’ve been feeding him usual time, about 4 ish but will make it a bit later from today and he can be in after that. Thanks for the help and suggestions. He’s only 2 so still learning that he’s not as big and clever as he thinks he is!
