I have only seen him briefly today when I was in the car and he was limping. The weather has been really bad so he has not been around.
I have treated him for fleas and have put a collar on him now so will keep an eye on his coat to see if the flea treatment clears it up.
I need to make sure he does not have an injury that causes him to limp when I next see him, if there is nothing evident I have some cat metacam so may give him that for a couple of days.

No not at all. I will feed it now and then but the treatment was the alternative to calling the RSPCA.
It is an intact male so it will never come in the house

I give up! He is missing again and has not been home since yesterday afternoon

I have decided I am not going looking for him and will wait for him to return or someone to ring me. I still have the missing note up in the shop from last weekend.

I assume he is shut in somewhere again and it is bouncing down again so wherever he is he wont be venturing out

Long term I have no idea what I am going to do with this cat - I cannot keep him as an indoor cat so he may have to be limited to the back garden which is not great

It's pretty obvious he's a wanderer. Not much you can do about that - he's def not an indoor cat.

You can only offer food shelter and care to a cat - They take what they choose and do their own thing mostly.

He may settle eventually but he'll drive you mad keep looking for him and it won't make any difference how many times you bring him back, if he wants to go off again he will !!!

I've got one just the same Jo - Our Poppy had her since she was a kitten she was from a farm litter.

She doesn't live indoors only bothers with us when she feels like it and only sleeps indoors if she's cold. I've been out looking for her so many times I gave up in the end.

She can also be quite violent towards us especially if she feels shut in - not your ideal pet but it's just how she is - some people wouldn't put up with her but she's our Poppy and we love her even though she's weird. lol!

I dont think so Linda, he has only been out a few occasions on the front and on most of them I have ended up going looking for him.
He eventually came home last night wet through and after eating his food he was back at the front door wanting to go out.

The main problem is he cannot jump so if he gets shut in someones garden he cannot get out. I spoke to the vets about it on Monday as I assumed it was because he has no tail but the vets said this should not make a difference and even 3 legged cats can be very agile.
He could not find a physical reason why he cannot jump up or climb

The only problem that I can forsee from my own experience is if he ends up in a garden with a dog. We have seen it a few times and those cats make a quick exit when Reuben comes out

Well he went out again on Saturday and has not been home since. I am no longer going looking for him or worrying about where he is. He has an ID disc and is chipped so if he ends up in trouble we will hear about it.

If he comes home I will feed him but just let him come and go as he pleases

My cat with no tail, cannot jump a straight 6ft fence, she jumps about 4ft then drags herself up on the fencing. I will try videoing her when she does it next time. She cannot jump down 6ft neither, she will toddle along the fences until she finds a lower fence to jump down on.

She has been without a tail for 5 years now, and still cannot do it. Do u know how long its been since Bodies accident or did he come into the shelter with no tail?

He came into the shelter with no tail Toni, the vets have no idea how long it has been missing or how he lost it.
We have no idea how old he is, the shelter reckoned about 6 but the vets said it is very difficult to tell with an adult
The highest I have ever seen him jump is my sofa and he never leaves our back garden even though he has items he could jump on to make it up to the fence, there is a garden chair next to the bins which are against the fence but he never attempts it

He is home again, someone rang me to say he had walked into their kitchen crying so they had fed him and rang me. He was a lot further afield this time so I dont know if he would have found his way home.

He was also different this time and was not interested in me. He usually follows me home on foot but this time I had to carry him and he was hissing and spitting at me. I put him down when I got on our street and he started to follow me down then disappeared into a garden.

I went back to get him and he was under someones car with the local stray, they then started to have a set to so I had to send reuben in to split them up. I then had to carry him home at arms length as he was not impressed at being picked up.

He is now fast asleep on the back of the sofa purring away in his sleep

I really think he has absoloutely no sense of direction and will go to anyone!

Some things are meant to try you and Bodie is that one. He really doesn't know when he is on to a good thing. I bet it looked as if you were cat-napping him. Daft moggy.

He is possibly just used to being out all the time and not looked after at home - looks like you have a battle on your hands with this one.
