How Long Do Cats Stay Outside For

by Joey

My cat has been outside for a few days now and I was wondering how long they stay outside for. My cat is an orange tabby male and I miss it very much so please answer my question, how much longer do you think it will be outside for?

Answer by Kate
Well it very much depends on whether your cat is neutered or not and on his particular temporament. Some cats like to be outside all the time others prefer to pop in and out. So to answer your question, if he is a un neutered male cat he could be out for days looking for mates or claimining his territory. Keep some food outside for him and keep calling him, so that he knows where you are. I'm sure when he is ready he will return.

I have had cats all my life.When they are babies I click my tongue every time I feed them,They get used to it meaning food.Later on they come whenever I click my tongue.My friend preferred a whistle tune she made up. Also if you have a cat door or window you will find that they are home more than you think they are.

Missing Kitten
by: Very worried!

My 6 month old kitten has been gone now for a day and a half. He has been neutered and this is unlike him. He is very loving and likes his food so I am surprised and worried. Is he likely to come back?

i normally dont let my cats out but my cat tends to jump out the windows and go out hes unneutured but he come back after 7-8 hours . but cats can go out for weeks or days so you shouldnt worry .
