sorry guys had to rant, missy is going missing every 2nd-3rd night. it's getting at me because i lost boof only 6 months ago and the thought of losing 2 cats in that period gets to me. she's fairly dopey so im a little bit worried. any ideas on what she might be doing.

i can't keep her in either (although before dusk they are mushed inside, but if shes not around obviously I can't do that) shes got outside bred in her so i hope shes alright

If it's happening in a pattern, might she have found a second home that she is visiting on occasions?

If you are that worried about her and have already lost a cat, it sounds like your only option is to keep her inside. Give her plenty of toys to play with, a scratcher, a window, and places to climb and hopefully she won't miss the outdoors too much.

It seems to me that you only have two choices.
1) Keep her inside where you won't worry about her.
2) Suck it up and learn to deal with her disappearing.

Anyway you can let her out into an enclosed outdoor area? Screened in porch or patio? Can you harness/leash train her and take her outside that way?

You already said its not an option, but I echo the keep her inside crowd. I'd be too worried every day and waiting for her to come home.

I can't keep her inside. she wont let it happen. she came home around 5am, she ate a fair bit so she hasn't got a 2nd food source.

Well there's a solution to that.
My darlings have these:

and I just tie them somewhere and they can move freely around, but not far enough to get lost or anything. Just be vary of putting them near the trees, cause you will have to get them from the tree a lot, because a rope will knot.

It's a really great solution, especially if you have your own garden.
Tested and working.

Wow, putting your cat in a harness and tying her up to something. Truly, truly terrifying idea. What if a loose dog attacks her? Sitting duck. Also, they can tangle themselves so easily.

Gotta agree with Krissy, either keep her inside or stop complaining about her not coming home. A "fairly dopey" cat is not the boss of you, you can keep her inside.
