How long does it take for a missing house cat to come back?
(Maple Grove, Minnesota, United States)
We live in the suburban area of Minnesota, near a very big woods. The woods is our backyard. Our cat has been missing for three days. She is bright white and 16 years old.
We have a litter box, food, and water outside. She hasn’t come back yet. We have missing posters up on the trails in the woods and in the neighborhood.
Has anyone else had a missing cat? What is her chance of survival in the woods? (We have foxes in our woods.) How long would it take her to come back?
