All 4 of our cats are there in the morning when I get up to feed them, and if they aren’t, they show up within 30 minutes. I’ve never gone to work without being able to account for them or at least seeing them for a bit in the morning before they go outside. One of our cats this morning started picking at the carpet in our bedroom at about 1:30AM which he is prone to do a lot when he wants out (even though we have a cat door, but he wants out the front door!) or wants to eat. I got up and ushered him out to the kitchen where I gave him a snack and then went to back to bed. It was raining pretty hard out so I’m sure he didn’t go out. I got up at 5AM and it had stopped raining and was clear skies. However, when I opened the food he didn’t come. Once again, not unusual for him to be outside, but come in shortly after. I left at 6:30 and there was no sign of him. I texted my husband at 8:30 and he said he didn’t see him anywhere either. He went out and called him but nothing. It’s a nice sunny day so he may be out enjoying the weather, but still odd for him not to be there even for a small appearance in the morning. He is very wary of people he doesn’t know and is always alert. If he thinks he hears someone coming up to the house, he runs and goes under the bed. He doesn’t roam too far. He’s usually in the front or back yard, but will go across the street or a few houses down the street. I’m at work for another couple of hours so we have no idea if he came home or not. I am so sick to my stomach hoping that he is there. We lost two cats in the span of 6 months 2 years ago so I am really upset. He is the last cat we’d thought we’d have to worry about because he is so cautious of people and things.
