Cats are naturally curious. They may wander off to explore new scents, sounds, and environments.
Cats are territorial animals. Conflicts with neighboring cats can lead to them seeking refuge elsewhere.
Unspayed or unneutered cats may run away in search of a mate, especially during the breeding season.
Loud noises, fireworks, or traumatic experiences can trigger fear in cats, prompting them to flee in search of safety.
Cats have a strong hunting instinct. They may chase prey and unintentionally end up far from home.
Cats are creatures of habit. Major changes in their routine or environment can cause stress and a desire to escape.
To prevent your cat from running away, ensure they are spayed/neutered, provide a safe environment, and keep them entertained.
