He's in the garage. He knows the cat door.
Yesterday, he spent the day outside, a lot of it under the pool pump. I didn't want to be outside in the dark looking for him, so I got a squirt bottle and got him from under the pump. He ran off. I'd thought he'd gone inside, but I couldn't find him. The next hour or so I spent looking for him outside. But he'd been in the whole time. He's found a spot in the garage and since I've seen him there for two days now, I imagine he's claimed that spot as his.
This morning I've seen him outside a couple of times and when he sees me, he runs back inside. This is a good thing, he knows where "safe" is.
This morning's outings have him closer to the house. Yesterday he checked out along the fence. I have a feeling in another few weeks, it will be like he's always been here
There's a definite difference between Mario's moving in and Rocky's moving in. Like in the garage, Mario was in hiding. Rocky isn't. He's just trying to find his way.
Like I said, I don't imagine it will be taking him too long.
