Will my cat come back if I let it out?
For first-time cat owners there’s always the worry that if you let your cat out, they’ll never come back. And, even with supervision, a cat that wants to escape will do so.
But cats enjoy their home comforts, and there are ways to encourage them to come back if they do wander off:
- Let your cat out just before feeding time. That way, they’ll have an incentive to return promptly.
- Call their name as you tap the food tin or shake their cat treats.
- Be patient. Cats might not come when you want them to but, generally, they’ll return when they’re ready.
- If you’re really worried, you can get a GPS tracking collar that lets you know where to find your pet.
