Eleven months ago from today I lost my 5-year-old black cat while moving houses. He was lost in the middle of winter. I looked everywhere for him time after time.
Today I drove past my old house just for fun. I saw a black cat!! I got out of the car and I knew it was him. I got him and put him in the car and drove home! He was still wearing the collar he had before getting lost!
I never thought I would get him back. Buddy is six now.
Today he received a flea treatment and is back to relaxing indoors. However I’m not sure he remembers how to use a cat box. He also doesn’t seem interested in any food I’ve tried to give him.
I’m not sure what he’s been eating the past 11 months, but he’s almost 17 pounds now! Could it be from eating mice and fresh meat etc?
I’m sure he got someone to feed him.. but not sure who. Old house is in a very secluded/country area. Not another house any direction for about a mile.
I had left my number with the closest houses but never got a call. The old house is still vacant.
Buddy hasn’t left the bed since 3pm, lol! I can tell he remembers my bed and is feeling very comfortable
