Is it true that Cat's will go away to die?
My elderly cat has been missing for five days. People keep telling me it probably just went away to die. Do cat's really do this?
Well I have been told this too, and when I was younger one of my cat's was dying and he tried to get out of the house - he just wasn't well enough to do this.
Having said that - another of my cats in the US went missing for about 2 months - he came back, well fed and healthy....
One of my cats of almost 25 years old (yes, unbelievably old), who hardly ever left the house, went away one day and never came back. We never found her either.
Like you, I'd also heard that cats go away to die.
Yes, they really do this. One of my cats went missing for two days and a neighbor knocked on my door one day to tell me that he had seen my cat hiding under their house. We went and got him and took him to the vet, but he was too sick by then and had to be put down.
My first cat that I ever had named Stinky left the house right before he died. He was a partial outdoor cat but never left the house for more than a few hours.
Before he died, he took off his collar for the first time and left it in the threshold of my mother's bedroom. He also brought us an over-abundance of "trophies" from outside and was extra affectionate.
We had an old car that was being fixed up (very slowly) in the back part of my property (about 5 acres or more). He climbed into there somehow and died inside. We found him in there a few days after he had gone missing.
I'm not sure why he wanted to leave when he knew he was going to die or even how he knew he was going to die soon. It's sort of a mystery to me.
Yes. They usually will go to a quiet corner in your house like a closet to die in peace.

My cat went missing, I feel so horrible... I can't stop crying.. What should I do!?I lost my cat at the pet store yesterday around 3PM, I can't stop crying... I don't know what to do. I am prone to anxiety attacks and I started having them. I hate being alone when I have them. My fiance is at work...

Do you think it's true that cats know when a person is about to die?I just saw a 20/20 episode where it was said that this was a fact.

Is it true that a cat's purring is part of the way they regulate their body temperature?Are there other reasons for a cat to purr?

It seems that one of my accolades has gone missing. I had at least eight accolades a few days ago, and now I see that I have 7 accolades. Is this a glitch? Do people lose their accolades??I think the one that I had previously, which is now missing, is :"contributes to the community by helping...
