I hope for your brother that the cat is just on a "love trip". AFAIK, that is pretty normal and the cat will probably return to the place where it gets all of that good food. However, if it's a male, it might get injured in a fight with another cat that's out for the same reason.

I also hope that the cat makes the return trip. Every now and then one Wifey's (ok our) cats will make it out the door for a field trip, most of the time they stay right in the yard but they have been known to be gone for a few days before they come back and non have not returned for their road trips. I would however have your brother call the local SPCA etc and check if any strays where picked up. Some of the animal shelters are not "no-kill" and do not keep animals for a long period of time.
I hope this helps and I do hope the cat comes back

My cats set of at any chance they can get, but they always come back .. particularly now as the temp is falling towards zero each night....
I got 2 of the little "darlings", both girls to avoid the desex issue as I though that I could just keep them inside (which I did for a few years), unfortunately Miss Dash turned out to be Master Dash which we disovered about the time that Miss Melissa came on heat...
Much to my shock and the kiddies amusement!
Anyway .. had a litter of kittens, then without a month or so .. damn cat was pregnant again .. so this time we got clever and desexed the boy, then after the kittens were weaned we desexed the mummy as well ...
Funny story is that one of our kittens went off to be a house cat for Monicas in Fyshwick (a local brothel) as they had a mouse plague ....

They have brothels in Australia?
That fixes it....see you later.....I'm going to Australia
We had a hanger cat where I used to work. One day it ran off and didn't come back for a couple of weeks. We had all written it off for dead since it was declawed and being out in the boonies there where wolverines and foxes all over the place.
Anyway one night about a month later we started hearing these god awful screams outside. We went to check on it and found the cat cornered by this red fox. Anytime the fox got to close the cat would start punching the fox in the face it it's paws. It was like a sugar ray fight. The fox would take a combination and back off and the try again.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

May I suggest Nevada? They're all over the state, except-of course in the immediate cities of Reno and Las Vegas. Although I don't know for sure first hand, several people have told me that many so-called "Massage" parlors are actually fronts for prostitution. I guess the owners "worked" it out with the cops or something. If you are into that sort of thing, you may wnat to check it out.

Time to get the cat neutered. Unfortunately there may be even more unwanted and/or stray and/or feral kittens out there in two months because of your cat. It is also healthier for him to be neutered, and he'll be less likely to spray (even if he does, the strong-smelling hormone won't be there anymore.) Also, I suggest that you take him to the vet in a few weeks and have him tested for Feline Leukemia since he could have been exposed (is he vaccinated in the first place?)
Sorry to seem so dour, but as a dedicated volunteer at the local animal shelter, stories like this just make me sick.

Either way, we are calling PAWS tomorrow to take care of him.
dear god! that sounds ominous .... *shudder*
One of the things that convinced us to remove 2 stone of our cat was that one night at about 3am there was this godawful racket outside. I went outside to see what it was and it was our cat and another fur on end howling at each other (both males).
As I stepped in to intervene ours forgot who was master and launched into my arms in an incident reminiscent of getting your arm stuck in a boat propeller covered in barbed wire .. during the course of ridding my arm of all it's skin, strip at a time, the little ba... *darling* proceeded to sink his teeth into the skin/bone of my hand between the thumb and forefinger.
Took days for the bleeding to stop and the pain to subside .. meanwhile, next day he found himself on the vets floor waiting for the big *snip*.
He's been pretty calm ever since (thank god).
: only concern.. he'll be more calm, but my brother fears he will not be as fun.
: Mirrodie, the only ones he'll be less fun for are all those girliecats out there. Given the probable species and sex of your brother he's unlikely to
