He is Gone! ** update **

Blacky has been missing since Monday.

Something in this cat is rural. He prefers the wild life away from the comfort of homes. This time I will not search for him. If he is going to come back by his own will, so it be. I am tired of worrying about him. Maybe he is a happier cat out there... in the unknown! But eventhough, I am keeping the balcony's door open and food and water available - in case he came back while I am away or decided to pay his house a visit.

The reason I am tired is that it is his second disappearence.. And when I found him in the first time, he was in a lousy condition. I had to take him to the vet and introduce him to his old diet.

As for my feelings, I am trying to stay calm.. He keeps visiting me in my dreams where is in a very harsh condition... Messy.. Violated.. Hit.. It is a living nightmare.

Would he come back?!
Is he alright?
Is he sleeping and eating well?

It is a savage world out there!! Humans are barely able to live by themselves, so how about small pets?!

This aches my heart!!! Click image for larger version

I believe from your previous posts that Blacky has not been neutered? if not then that is why.

He is driven to mate and will do anything he can to escape the confinement of your house.

Had you actually had him neutered as suggested by many people in your other post then he would probably be happily curled up some place warm and cosy in your house now.

Your decision was made and this is the outcome, Of course it's also possible that he really does prefer the harsh outside world.

No, he doesn't. He is an intact male, so you have given him no choice. Who knows if he will come back or what condition he will be in, but if he does I hope you do things differently this time. Get him neutered!!

It breaks my heart as well, because beautiful Blacky does not have a chance if you do not take care of him the way you need to.

Oh wow, I knew you were going to keep him in tact a bit longer but I had NO idea he was an inside outside cat...... that's a lot of kittens being produced who will probably not have homes...

Gurujad, I hope Blacky does come back...
If he does, get him neutered immediately!
You underestimate the Power of Hormones!
I hope he will be Ok, till he shows back up...keep the food and water out for him...

@DaveMB:
Yes, he is not neutered. I was still debating the option.. But I guess I took a longer time than needed. I have a lot of outside-cats, and they were never neutered and they never leave the area of the house. This was my first pet to keep inside because I keep him in my apartment and not my family house in the country.
I got really attached to Blacky. I believe I am supposed to blame myself for not neutering him as early as needed.

@Heather72745:
You are right, Heather. There is a little chance he would come back. But there is something, I asked some of my neighbours who raise unneutered cats too, and theirncats have disappeared as well!!
I am hoping he would mate and come back.... If he knew his way home... Or remembered me!!

@MowMow:
Foolish me... I should have neutered him or secured the flat!!!
I was ready to bring him a female cat home if he waited a bit.... but things do not go as we always wish!!!

I'm not saying you should blame yourself, only that this is the inevitable outcome of not having him neutered.

I do believe he will come back when he has had his 'fun' and it's obvious that you care about him so when he returns consider getting him neutered
