Advice: Born to be Wild

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

Dear Meankitty,

We recently brought a wild cat into our home, fixed him, declawed his front paws, and kept him inside. He loved it, until today….he got outside in the snow and sprinted off. Now he is in a big drain pipe and won’t come out for food or anything. What should we do? We don’t want to lose him. He’s really a very loving cat and he loved being inside.

Signed,
Jessie

Dear Jessie,

Ah, the allure of the great outdoors! Cats are Born to be Wi-i-ild, you know. Although they would be best advised not to head out on the highway, there are many who indeed concentrate on looking for adventure and whatever comes their way. One suggestion for luring your wild cat back into his pampered pad is to let him get a little hungrier then waft the smell of tuna down the drainpipe. Mmmmm, tuna. Of course when I was being a Kitty Houdini, the only thing that brought ME back to the pen was the neighbor. Good luck.

Signed,
Meankitty
