That would make me, very happy and very angry at the same time! I mean your neighbour intentionally taking your cat!! THEN being dishonest about it!!
I am really glad you have found him again!! I'm sure you feel so very happy about it.
I suppose I come as close as you can to "sealing" the neighbours cat without actually doing it. My cat adopted the neighbours cat, over Christmas, and he comes around for play sessions and breakfast.
I've not pinched him, and I do try and send him out the cat flap when he comes in but he does fancy my cat very much and loves spending time with her, even if she does swat him from time to time.
But never in a million years would I ever think about just keeping him!! We love him to bits and have a great amount of affection for him, but it's kind of like your kids friend, you know them, like them but they aren't yours even though they eat plenty of suppers at your house.
In fact I called the number on his tag and alerted the owner that he spends time at my place because my cat "adopted" him. She was fine with my call and information. We don't know each other, or weren't neighbourly friends, they live behind the fence of our garden, but I didn't want her thinking we had stolen their cat! I don't think I could live with myself if I did!! ... no matter how big and cute his eyes are!!
