1st: Cats do have a big fear of the bathroom/shower. It isn't unusual for them to get aggressive if you try to pick them up when the shower is on. My advice; keep kitty out of the bathroom when bathing if possible. (Kitty probably doesn't understand what you're doing, and is getting stressed.)

2nd: Indoor/outdoor cats will disappear for days, weeks at a time. Short of locking him in, there isn't much to be done about it. Outdoor cats are more independent and used to spending time outside doing...outdoor cat things. He must remember you somewhat, as he does come back.

While outside, however, he will probably act as if you're a stranger. Cat's rely largely on smell in recognizing other creatures, and outside, you're just a big, potentially dangerous human. So he won't get close enough to "smell you"...he'll just run.

If he isn't eating for long periods of time, it could be stress. If he seems healthy, then probably he's getting food from an outside source and you shouldn't worry (well, not too much). Your kitty probably has two or three backyards he visits where people feed him, It's common outdoor cat behavior. The world is kitty's restaurant/Smorgasbord!! :)

As to the language issue, I think you'll need to clarify a bit. If you're asking about why kittens seem to respond more to humans than adult cats, well, the answer is simple; they grow up. You're no longer the "parent", and they no longer "listen" to your every word and action.
