My neighbour's cat hasn't come home.. - July 29th 2011, 06:08 AM

I'm supposed to be minding my neighbour's cats for a few days while she's away, but basically my only job is to let the cats into their house to sleep and eat every evening, and let them out again in the morning. Last night I came home a little later than usual and one of the cats didn't appear, although they're usually both waiting for me at the door. I let the other one in anyway, and checked a little later, and he still wasn't back. I just checked again now, and he's still not home. Should I be worried??
And if he comes back in a while will I let him in for food or just keep him out (I've to let the other one out soon in a couple of hours.)
I just feel really worried that something's happened to him while he's technically under my care. :/

I wouldn't panic just yet, ask their neighbours to open their sheds because my cat was once out all night and it turned out she was in the neighbours shed. If he comes back i'd let him in for food just incase he hasn't ate anything for awhile.

It's not your fault if something has happened, you've done what you were supposed to do. x

What works for me when my cats don't come inside is shaking their food container. Of course, that will only work if their cats eat dry food and are close enough to hear the container.

Honestly, cats are so self-sufficient and tough that I wouldn't worry just yet. He might have just gotten bored since you were a bit late home. If he doesn't come back tonight, then I would start looking and asking neighbours if they've seen him.

Good luck! And if he does come back, give him some food then since he'll be hungry.

Oh thanks guys!! He came sauntering back when I went to let out the other one at 9am, acting like he had no idea why I was scolding him, so I let him eat and shooed him out again. So relieved...now I know what it must be like to have a teenage child!!Thanks so much for the replies. <3
