Myst, my 11 month old unneutered tabby cat, took off on April 1st and has not returned home yet. I am worried sick about him being hit by a car, getting lost, injured, or even being eaten by a coyote. Is this normal behavior for a cat?! Please help, as I don't know what to do. I was led to believe that male tomcats would just roam for a day or two and return home, but not so with Myst! He was spotted on April 3rd walking next to a nearby school building at about 2:30 in the afternoon and that's the last we've heard or seen of him. I've driven the neighborhood, searching for him, looking for injured or dead cats in the streets, called the police, animal shelters, schools and no word or sighting of him. I always call him by yelling his name day at night, but no response. Before he left on his adventure, I noticed him spraying on a bush next to our porch. He is a very lovable and affectionate indoor/outdoor cat who always came in the house to sleep during the daytime and at night. Is this normal behavior and what should I do? Please help!
