Most often, a furry friend that’s run away from home or has gone missing hasn’t done so out of a genuine desire to abandon you, but because of an external situation. Many want the chance to temporarily exercise their natural hunting, running, or chasing instincts in a way that extends beyond the boundaries, and simply wander too far in the wrong direction. In some cases, however, a cat or dog can take off in search of safety if there is a perceived threat in your environment.
One of the challenges of being a pet parent to a loving feline is the need to frequently answer one important question: “Where is my cat?” If you have an indoor cat and access to windows and doors is pretty limited, you don’t need to stress too much over the cat’s sudden disappearance. Especially if they are of a temperamental nature, they’ll come out when they’re hungry, thirsty, or bored with playing the hiding game.
