Sorry if you consider this to be OT junk but it does contain some valuable points,. Anyway, I havnt seen 2 of my cats in about 3 weeks now, one of which, 7 years old aka Jimmy-D, would usually go off and return every other day for food and a warm bed. However, the other, 8 years old aka Winston, never left the house other than for toilet issues, even then it was on my back lawn. It's really unusual for this cat to go a full night outside,never mind 3 weeks (we're thinking the worst). Onto the next point, since these 2 have vanished, one of my other cats, 7year old aka Shaun, has altered dramatically; he used to be in every otehr day, feeding once every visit. Now,he bums around the kichen expecting to be fed 4 or 5 times daily. Hes also become mega lazy and unhygenic. 'Why would it worry abotu the other cats' you ask... Winston was his momma, and Jimmy-D was its sis'. I hope they come back, anyone else dealt with a missing cat?
