OH btw, did you tell everyone that you notified (meaning the locals out that way) that he is now home? That way they don't keep looking for him.

Poor guy actually had to have surgery today at the vet. The lacerations he suffered from after hitting that barbed wire did some pretty bad damage to his chest and stomach, but it missed his organs, thank God.

The vet and nurses were literally beside themselves when we told them he had spent a week in the wilderness without food and water available and in a survival, threatened state of mind. They said heard of many cases of lost injured cats who did not make it due to predators snatching them up...but they couldn't believe our story.

He really is a trooper...poor guy had to get 10 stitches from his infected wounds, and has been put on pain meds and antibiotics for the next 3 weeks. It really makes the story of Ramsey's survival much more incredible...I'm very proud of him
I'm willing to bet that your bringing familiar items to the area and leaving them around helped Ramsey through this and gave him the added strength for survival. Ramsey stayed in the area you kept coming back to, he wanted to find you as much as you wanted to find him. Had you not kept going back Ramsey may have given up; your a great "dad". Congratulations on getting your baby back and kudos to TW for the support and prayers.

I wonder if your story brought any cat fans out of the closet, we all know the type; they claim they hate cats but are really cat-curious.

Wow man, that is awesome. I was away camping with the family for the weekend and was hoping when I got back I would see exactly what I'm seeing. Love that picture and I'm so glad to hear Ramsey is home. You should be very proud of what you've accomplished. If you listen closely you'll hear me applauding your perseverance and complete commitment to getting Ramsey home again, totally awesome man

Yes, we tried our best to notify everybody in town, and all the people from the National Abyssinian Rescue that he's home safe.

I agree, and that's why I was so adamant about driving back up ever other day to just "be there" and have him know that we're around.

Ramsey is recovering from his surgery very well...as stated, he's a trooper. He's spending most of his days napping around the house, yet he's quite active at night like usual. It's taking a constant effort to watch him and make sure he's not licking his stitches, and the cone isn't working since they're so low, and hes so damn flexible!

Otherwise, I think he has a new appreciation for his family. Ramsey was never a "lap cat", he always liked to just come and go as he pleases and never really stayed in one part of the house for a while. But lately, he's been jumping onto the couch and napping on my lap for sometimes hours! It's nice to see him so appreciative

Nice story, great ending, and congrats! Went camping last four days with no Internet or cell coverage... Waiting for the outcome was killing my wife and I!

I know this is a super old thread, but I enjoyed reading it and I'm happy the cat was found! What a happy ending!


When we had to put my cat down it was horrible, I can only hope there is a kitty heaven!

7 months later, and Ramsey is going strong! He's actually gotten quite accustomed to being outside lately. He's snuck out of the house 3 times this week only to snoop around the yard and hop the fence into the wilderness behind it and then hop back over then wait at the door for us to open it.

I'm not worried about him losing his way around the neighborhood, but more the predators in our area. Plenty of bobcats, raptors, coyotes, and snakes behind the fence.

wassup Ramsey? I had cats growing up, they killed everything that wasn't too big or moved too fast. My house never had birds or squirrels.
