    Awwwwwwwwwwww...... how wonderful.
    Well.... I guess that's a good thing! I don't care for cats, but I'm glad your baby came back to you! Better than running around my backyard!

    She disappeared one month ago almost exactly. I had gotten rid of the kitty litter, so had to make an emergency box (shredded newspaper) and fed her the last can of catfood I had.. Then went to the petstore and bought her a brand new, BIGGER box, litter and catfood.

    I've cleaned her up a little and applied the flea stuff. She's walking around meowing at us like she's trying to tell us her tale of woe. I think the girls traumatized!!!

    We try to keep our cats indoors, but they get out from time to time. The last time Strider, our oldest cat, disappeared, my wife and daughter found him at the humane society. He was scheduled for termination the next day. It cost them $30 to bail him out. He doesn't have a clue. We put collars on them and they always got them off. One cat broke off a tooth getting his collar off, so we just keep them in the house.

    The female cat ran out of the house on a very cold night a couple of years ago. About -25 degrees F. and about two feet of snow on the ground. She holed up under the shed in the back yard with the wild rabbits and came to the door the next morning. Her littermate just about bought the farm too a couple of years ago. A neighbor has a live trap that the cat was caught in. Then he locked the cat in his shed and was going to call the humane society in the morning. My wife found him by his meowing, and got the neighbor out of bed to get the cat back.

    They don't learn though, they still try to get outside.
