I have 4 cats, but only one who loves only me. While I was away caring for my father for 2 months, my Timmy would only come inside to look for me. Everytime he found me gone he'd want to run back outside. My boys had a hard time getting him to eat anything and many times had to leave him something outside. Now that I'm home, he's back to his normal self. It's like he moved out when I did and only returned when I was back.
