Cat run off, will he come back?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hello

Full story.

Female cat, 3-4 months old, come into heat, my boys not neutered, and wanted to become a dad.

We phoned up the vets got them booked in (today).

After a weekend of chasing the female cat, we got them in safe ready for the neutering.

This morning, they both got neutered successfully.


Got them home, and tried to get them to go to the bathroom, which they really needed to go. They didn't. So I used our dogs lead and made it smaller (puppy lead) put it around taffy, and took him outside to do his stuff.

I asked someone to keep an eye on the dog, and our other cat, but they didn't and the dog came bouncing out, and knocked me over. I had no choice but to let go of the lead, and one cat ran one way, and the other cat was chased by the dog.

The cat with the lead on, jumped over the fence, and ran into the bushes, and field/hill.

I went right after him, and asked the person who was looking after the other cat, to go after the him, they didn't so I had to go back inside and get them to do it.

I went back into the field/bushes/hill area, no sign of my boy. My other one came back home.

Will my other one do the same? What should I do? EAsiest way to get him back?

They have been chipped, but not registered yet.

I really need advise? I will spend all night/day/night looking for him.

I will keep an eye out of this post via my phone. PLEASE HELP.

OK you said they micro-chipped, but not registered. Please register their information as soon as possible. Next start checking around your neighborhood and the local shelters.


Call them, listen to see if you can hear them crying or anything. Look everywhere you can. Leave food out for them. Say some prayers for them! I hope you find them! *hugs*


Dear MysteryCat, I am *so* sorry for what happened to you and you kitty that is just heartbreaking! *hugs*

He'll come back. He knows where he lives. He'll get hungry and start missing you. I know you're worried, and I wish I could do more to comfort you.

I am glad that you use kitty therapy to help you with Asperger's. Cats can be an amazing source of comfort and calming. And I am glad that you got your boys neutered. I have no doubt your cat will come back, especially when he gets hungry.

If you can't find him in the next day, please talk to your neighbors. If he is microchipped he is in "the system". When I adopted my girl, she was microchipped and they changed the microchip info to my address and phone number. Even if you haven't updated info, there has to be a way you can track him with the chip.



I know I said it in another thread, but thank you for getting your boys neutered. I believe it really will make for a better life for them AND for you. From your posts I can see that you are a very caring cat owner. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that your boy comes home safely very, very soon.

12 hours missing, what do I do?
post #10 of 25
Please have faith. I really believe he will return.:vi bes:I bet he is just hiding out nearby. I had a cat run off and she was gone for days~~until she got hungry!! But she never went far from the house. I would like to tell you not to worry yourself sick about it, but I know how anxious you are feeling about this. We will be hoping and praying!!! Please keep us posted

Awwww hun, I'm sure he'll come home soon. He was just scared. Sending LOTS of vibes for his safe return!

You said he was wearing the leash when he ran off. My concern would be that the leash got stuck on a branch or a bush or something and he's stuck somewhere trying to get loose. I don't know if cats have the ability to knaw through something like that to get free, but he may not be able to. I would go looking for him again and bring treats or something. I don't know what kind of area you live in, but I'm getting the feeling that he didn't necessarily go far from the house.

FOUND HIM.

He still had the leash on.

He looks black, must of gone under a car or something.

He is now cleaning himself, and smells like pee, more likely from yesterday when he peed and laid in it at the vets.

BOLLO HAS RUN OFF NOW!!!

I am sure he will be fine, he has never missed a meal.

His routine is feeding at sun rise and sun set.

I will have to go and tell some old woman who helped me look after 23 miles of walking, looking, and climbing or since 9pm YESTERDAY till 12:30PM TODAY.


I am posting back on the litter thread now.

Both back safely.

How long till they can come and go?

They just had an operation, vet said till I am comfortable.
post #16 of 25
It'll be a month or more before the male hormones subside, so they'll still be looking for females for a while. As far as the neutering is concerned, males are usually just fine after the anesthesia has worn off, but it might be a good idea to keep them in for another day or so, just to be sure there aren't any complications.

The both can sleep for england at the moment, so its not safe just yet? Might let them out in the morning then?

That way it will be 2 days since the operation.

When bubbles lost his tail, he was out right away. Same with being neutered, He unlocked his carrier and ran away. Took a day for him to come back, but never leaves the house for 2 long.

I'd wait and see how they are in the morning, if they're sleeping so soundly now. Taffy is probably exhausted after his "adventure".

Yeap, Taffy has been sleeping for about 6-7 hours. After being missing for 15 hours - Longest ever - Made Missing cat flyers - walked over 35,000 steps looking for him.

When Taffy came in, Bollo ran out, he also didn't sleep last night.

Bollo came in for food. and is laying on my leg, and seems fine, but not asleep.

A very good friend of mine has Asperger's too. I'm so glad they both came back! I know from my friend how much his animals mean to him as they're easier for him to relate to than people.

I did know one cat who was allowed out right after being neutered and he got an infection. Cleared right up with antibiotics but now I think most cats should stay in for about 3 days after a neuter just in case. Though I usually let ferals go after a day. My last feral I had neutered disappeared for 3 days after I let him go, but he knows where his food is..... .

Glad to hear Taffy came home OK. I figured he'd be back but with him still having the leash on it could have been dangerous.

My dad and brother have Asperger's. It seems to be fairly common. Like ADD.

Yes, aspergers is common, but most people don't understand it.

Its so common, everyone has a form of it, but most are so mild, it never effects them. However, (this sounds sad) my only true friends in my life are my cats).

I am thinking of letting them out, when the female cat thats in heat goes home, so about 9am-3pm.

You also have us here at TCS. I have made many great friends online, some who I have met in person, and some that I haven't.

Yes, it is really heartbreaking, it feels like I didn't gave her enough love and care! That's why now, I'm giving all my attention for my "Charlie", I don't want it to happen again
