hello from Socal
I am a from Socal and have joined because I have a dilemma.
we lost our old blind cat right after thanksgiving.. my old cat had been standing another cat that has been trying to move into my house for 2yrs off.
anyways about a month ago ..this cat made his play and ran into the house one cold night looking scarred of something outside... not sure what but cat seemed terrified...I heard something banging about outside and opened the door to investigate and this cat ran in.
The next morning i set the cat back outside and said..thanx for the visit... off you go... cat sat there and ran back inside as soon as he had a chance.
efforts to locate the owners of this cat failed and the cat kept on acting most delighted indeed to be here.
about the time we sort of settled on oh well guess we have a new cat... 2mos on now... someone came by the house and talked to our house mate indicating they are looking for this cat...DOH... However they didn't take the cat..whom was asleep in the house nor did our house mate get contact info nor did they offer it. So it is almost a week on no sign of them coming back for the cat... my efforts to locate them have proved fruitless so far.
I don't want to steal these peoples cat..but on the other hand ...very soon they need to take it and figure out why it left (they apparently live somewhere close) or... my wife (the cat adores my wife and she is recovering from cancer treatments currently ..she loves this cat greatly) and i need to just adopt him ..but the lack of any subsequent contact from this mystery (to me at least) owner of this cat...is sort of jamming up the works?
that may well all be out of order i guess for introductions? but blah blah blah...as you see I joined as I for my part am unsure how to handle this and how to ensure a proper outcome for this cat.... or for that matter what a proper outcome is at this point?
