THE CAT CAME BACK! It wasn't the very next day but 15 days. He showed up on my patio disoriented, filthy and a few pounds thinner but he is home safe and sound. He has not left my side since he came home which is very unusual for him. He is usually very independent cat that likes his space. He didn't even mind the bath I gave him to get all the dirt off! So, I wonder where he was and what he was doing for the last 15 days. I asked him but he refuses to comment. He just looks grateful to be home.
