Cat keeps getting lost

    I think so. He chases after other cats and he has come home with scratches.

    I like the design of the estate I think it's fantastic.

    You may just have to ride it out then and wait until he's established his territory. Even neutered toms still have to fight for a bit of turf sometimes

    I still think the biggest problem is his not finding his way home once he gets too far away. He could also be running away from people and then get too far away when he is on the top walk way of the estate or it could be him following another cat too far. I always read stories about cats making their way home from miles away, so I hope Alfie will get his head around navigating the estate.

    Doesn't say so here:

    The prejudices against the estate and modernist architecure in general in the UK insane. I've had people come round to do work on my flat who told me they'd like to see the building pulled down. The last one was told to fuck off.

    Not everybody wants to live in a Prince Charles Disneyworld of mock Tudor, Georgian and Victorian architecture only. Cities are ever evolving things and anybody who wants live in a place that always stays quaint should go and fuck off to a small town like Rye.

    That was from the page of the film. I can not see the picture at work so looked for that instead. Don't worry ich bin not stalking dich! :D

    ETA I think the estate looks great. All the tenants should get funding for lots of hanging baskets and plants!

    You would've been welcome to our old cat lead.

    That worked well.

    :facepalm:

    It's worth a try. Some cats are fine with leads others aren't. When I lived in San Francisco the homeless people there had cats rather than dogs and they all had them on leads.

    I really, really don't want to lose this cat. He is the loveliest cat I've ever had and he makes me happy. I'd be so miserable if he never came back.:(

    Am another person who is jealous that you live there! I seem to remember seeing it on Primeval last year (as well as millions of other things).

    I think taking him for walks and showing him the way home from various directions is a good idea.

    I'm getting him a pet locator, which is like the gadget Ripley used in Aliens to track Newt, so it's not that far off. :)

    If you go out with him, will he follow you? Our cats do follow us if we go within a certain radius, and then stop. Maybe that way you can show him without the need for a lead. I don't think most cats would enjoy them.

    He's wearing his new locator tag and I let him out. Some little girls shouted at him when he was on the staircase, so he ran to the next staircase utterly terrified and then thought the wrong staircase would lead to his flat. It's going to be a while till he gets the hang. Now he's too scared to leave the balcony, which is just as well. Glad for the pet locator though. I found him immediately after I heard the girls shrieking at him.

    My cat's job is to be cute. He is not expected to go on Mastermind. :(
