My semi-stray Minky has gone missing for 48 hours. I have never known him not appear at my house for more than a day and he usually spends about 6 -8 hours in a day in my house and visits 2-3 times. I call him a semi-stray as he is a cat I sort of unoffically adopted. I have never been able to pick him up and get him in a box to go to the vets and get him neutered. Is it relatively normal for an unneutered cat to go off fot a few days? The weather in England has got a bit warmer recenlty and I'm hoping he's off enjoying the sunshine.I've been around outside calling him but it's difficult to know where he might be as I live in an isolated area and have no idea where he goes when he's not with me. Usually if I call him he turns out to be quite close by but this time there is no sign of him. I think it unlikely he would have been taken to a shelter as he runs away from everyone and cannot be picked up. I don't know whether I am worrying unecessarily as maybe he's just gone off. To anyone with experience of strays, is this type of disappearance relatively normal for unneutered males?
