Cats think it great fun when you try to catch them and they wont let you. We are totally stressed but they think it's a grand game

Try tuna, babe. Cats really love stinky stuff and will often give up the game when they get a whiff of stinky food. (I sure am glad you at least know where he is for the moment.)

Oh Babe, I do hope he has come home by now. It is good, at least, to know that he is OK for the time being. Keep us posted.

What ever you do, do not feed him or give him water when he gets hungry or thirsty enough he will know where his food is and want it real bad. I do that when Snoopy decides he likes it so much outside and wants to play the ("catch me if you can game") as soon as his tummy gets hungry he is back in the house. If you can crack the door tonight he will most likely come in when he is ready to stop the games if he likes sleeping with you then he will eat and come to bed.

being the spoiled snot that he is, he would probably eat it and go right back out. lol


i love cats because they are so independent and look what it gets me! lol
i am to tired now to worry anymore about him.

I'm so sorry to hear Thomas is being naughty, Babe. I know how you feel - one of my cats did this exact same thing to me last year. He hid out under the house for 4 days!!! I was totally distraught and convinced he'd be eaten by stray dogs or raccoons. I tempted him with tuna for 4 days and then finally, he decided to let me "catch" him and bring him in. The funny thing was that he acted like he had missed me soooo much and that he was so glad to be back home! He was my shadow for at least a week, demanding to be petted and stroked constantly.
