Neighbor's cat coming in the cat door
Over the last month or so, my neighbor's cat Theo decided he'd rather live with me. He has gradually/tentatively explored my place via the cat door.
My four male cats like him. They are used to socializing with him outdoors since he was a kitten and have accepted that he now comes in occasionally.
I mentioned to my neighbor that his cat slept in a corner of my living room the other night when it was 25 degrees. He said, "I wish he would come in, but he hates the dog."
My neighbor got a puppy July 1. Theo has never been back inside since.
He does feed leave food for the cat -twice a day outside - but has no other contact with him.
The situation is OK for now. I don't feed him but I did make a bed for him in a corner and he is there every night. He enjoys being talked to and petted.
Kind of strange, though, don't you think?
