Hey everyone, I’ve been busy, so I’ve had little time for this site. Cupid is still missing and still miss him very much. I think it’s the feeling of not knowing what happened to him. I want closure but can’t get it until he either comes home or they find his body.

It’s getting real hard to keep hope alive that he’ll eventually find his way home. I’m honestly starting to think I’ll never see him again. It’s been so long at this point, if he really is out there, I don’t know why he’s not home.

Cupid got me through some tough things and there’s still so more I have to do with him. I’m missing him more than usual lately.

I hope Cupid comes home soon. Are you able to make him a completely indoor cat?
There are many ways to make an outdoor kitty into an indoor kitty, and still let them enjoy some aspects of the outdoors, while being completely safe.
Outdoor cats have significantly shorter lifespans than indoor cats do. If you want Cupid to be around for a good, long time, this might need to be considered.

I don’t know. Being outside is a big part of who he is. If he comes back of course we’ll keep him in for a bit, but I’m not sure if we can.

CyberAlexMM CyberAlexMM we tried to bring my cat Bella inside for years, but she refused to come inside for more than a few minutes at a time. some cats just prefer being free outside.
That being said, with a cat like Cupid who, I assume, knows and loves you and your family, there is a very good chance that bringing him inside is a possibility, assuming that’s fine with your parents, Mochi, and Lemon, of course.
I would recommend trying it if possible :) The Five Golden Rules To Bringing An Outdoor Cat Inside – TheCatSite Articles
