My mom and I were heading out to go shopping this afternoon, and a couple blocks from home we spotted a cat hanging out in an empty parking lot. We turned around and pulled over - there are currently "lost cat" flyers all over our neighborhood so I wanted to make sure this wasn't the same cat. Otherwise we wouldn't have stopped, honestly I have driven past many cats and I just assume they are outdoor cats with homes. After a little hesitation I got him to come over to me and we were immediately BFFs. Really, friendliest cat I have ever met. Giving kisses, rolling around purring, jumping in my lap and rubbing his face against mine. Sooo affectionate. He is not the same cat that is lost in my neighborhood.... so my mom told me to just leave him... but he kept following me. And I couldn't do it. We took him to the vet, no microchip. He doesn't match any of the reported missing cats. I checked Craigslist and the MN Lost Cats Facebook page. Nothing. He is pretty thin too so I think he's been out a while. We brought him home and fed him, which he eagerly snarfed up. But after that we didn't know what to do so we brought him to animal control. =/ We can't keep him or even bring him inside so options were limited. But I just feel like what if we sentenced him to death by doing that? Of course, if he's just living outside I don't think he was going to live very long anyway but I don't know. Are there any other options? It's like, as soon as I got out of the car and got him to come to me.... there was no way I could NOT do something. And I couldn't just bring him back to that spot and dump him. Ugghhh. Animal control was super vague about what would happen with him or how much time he has, but it sounds like it's really to his advantage that he's friendly. He's super cute The good news is my sister miiiiight be interested in adopting him, but her husband is not sure and she is a little concerned since they already have a cat. I just want a happy ending for him.
