Welcome aboard kute_kitten!
Sorry to hear about your cat. I also think she might have been too dazed to react normally. She may have been through a lot in those six weeks - we can never know...
I remember when one of my cats (now in kitty heaven) disapeared for a week. We were so worried about her and couldn't find her anyway. After a week, she suddenly showed up on our doorstep, wounded and all dirty. The vet said she was either hit by a car or by people (I know it sounds horrible, we were shocked too). She had a broken jaw and lost some teeth. She was totally dehydrated and starved but she couldn't eat much. The vet gave her fluids and some shots to make her stronger.
I'm telling you all this not just because I get carried away when I type (I do
), but to say that our poor kitty was in a daze for quite a few days after she came back. she didn't respond to attention and was acting very strange. With time she got better and was back to her old self.
By the way, what kind of a place is it, where you found her?
