Distant noises and lights could capture his curiosity favoring a sudden escape.
Coupling and heat period

Sterilizing is the best solution because it calms the soul of the cat and at the same time promotes a better health condition, especially for females, preserving them from the formation of tumor diseases.

He could have simply fled or sadly died, to solve the problem it is good to put in place a close word of mouth through social networks, or by hanging leaflets throughout the neighborhood.
