As stated before, our two favorite cats disappeared from our property April 23rd and we have recently received a tip that they may be about 8 miles from our home. I am just grasping at straws thinking this could be them as the older couple are not really sure about what they look like other than they look something like ours. I am checking it out, as a neighbor about 2 miles from our home had told us that they had seen cats that they thought looked very much like ours, about a week after they disappeared. They were in the same general direction from where they may have been spotted this time. I am putting out a live trap there to see if I can catch any of the cats. They say there are about 6 in the area, some are feral cats that have been there some time. Am I crazy to keep looking on the off chance they are still alive after over 10 weeks that they have been gone? I don't feel right not checking out every lead as it is possible that it could be them....Not likely, but possible and I would never forgive myself if it was then and I never checked. How far can cats stray and why do they stray from a loving home??? Any info is appreciated.
