Do cats go away to die? :(
But I am so sorry about your parents kitty We are treated our landlord's cat for heartworms. She likes to run wild outside. If she died suddenly of heartworms, we might not ever find her
For those of you who lost pets this way, I am so sorry. The wait was emotionally crushing, and I would never want to go through that again. Thank you for support.
I would like to say a big thankyou to everybody who has responded to this topic. My cat is 14yrs old and went missing for 5 nights 4 days and I was devastated. I live on an ex farm with old sheds and surrounded with fields. There are quite a number of foxes about and the weather has been very cold. I was exstremely upset reading reviews that old cats go away to die and was very very upset thinking the worst. After reading the reviews on this topic it gave me a little hope that she could still come home.
Happy Happy Happy yes she did return safe and well, but very hungry. I dont know why old cats do this and it can be very distressing, but for some of us there can be hope and they do return.
