Most owners are alright with their pet cats going out of the house. After all, cats are known for their independence. Seeing them come in and out of the house is a pretty common sight for pet owners.

However, there are instances that our beloved felines might stop coming back home. They might have a hard time getting back, or maybe they’ve found somewhere else to call home. It’s important to figure out the reasons as to why cats go missing in the first place, to help lessen the chance of them disappearing.

Having too much Fun

Cats love to spend time outside when the weather is fine and when the sun shining its brightest. This happens mostly during summer months, when cats are more active outdoors to either bask in sunshine, or chase smaller critters. Cat owners can expect their furry companions to be spending more time outside the house during these months.

But cats can get too caught in the moment, and they end up chasing prey (or have themselves scared so much) to the point of running into an unfamiliar area. What’s more alarming is the possibility that they could end up getting stuck on a bustling crossing or road. Although it’s impossible to stop your cat’s natural instincts and behaviour, you can increase the chances of finding them quickly by using a cat tracker, allowing you to monitor where they are during their adventures.

The Uncontrollable Libido of Un-spayed and Un-neutered Cats

Un-neutered and un-spayed cats have raging libidos that they can’t help but succumb to. It’s caused by a biological need to keep their species proliferating. If you have a tomcat cat with you (a male cat that have not undergone neutering), going out of the house in search of a mate is one of the biggest reasons why they go missing.

Tomcat cats travel for miles and miles, and they sometimes even wait for female indoor cats to go out of their homes, in a frenzied search of a mate. They can do this for days (sometimes it takes them weeks), until they’ve successfully satisfied their libido’s needs. Although it’s uncommon for female cats to go out and search for a mate, un-spayed females can get frustrated, and end up searching for tomcat cats.

A more Convenient and Favourable Place

Cats need to live in a hospitable place, and since they’re quite sensitive to changes in the places they’ve considered to be home, they might leave to search for a more favourable one. A new dog, a new baby, or any change can trigger this behaviour, which is why it’s a good idea to make sure they get to eat delicious cat foods, their water bowls always have clean water in them, and that the place still feels safe and comfortable for them.

The exact reason why cats go missing is still pretty mysterious, but the ones we’ve mentioned above are the most common rationales. By getting your cats neutered and spayed, having a tracking device, and making sure they’re well taken care of, minimizes the chance of them disappearing. Losing a loved one is difficult, and no owner should experience the pain of being separated with their furry bundles of joy.
