      I just don’t know much about cat.  As you know, I may have a new member adding to my family.  I am still working on my husband and he seems a little better today.  I told him I would post found cat poster as well as inform all shelters to see if I can find the owner.

      Reality is: I got the feeling this cat is lost for awhile. His fur is not the greatest and he has not been fixed.  He has a bit wound on his tail and so I am planning on bringing him to the Vet as well as getting him vaccine and fixed.

      Hubby is a little mellow today and thanks to your prayers.

      The cat seems to be litter trained and he is very adorable and passionate.

      I do not know if I should let him roam free.  He is out of the house for now and I know he will come back at night.

      I did put a notification around his neck (using dymo tape - asking the owner to contact me with phone #).  

      Anyhow, just want to hear anything from cat lovers.  Thank you.  

      Sorry I have been talking about this lately but it is really the highlight.

        • Have him neutered and keep him inside.

          I don’t know your neighborhood situation, but I refuse to let my 2 kitties roam free.  My neighbors aren’t paying a mortgage (or rent, in some cases) to have my kitties using their gardens for a litter box and leaving dead birds on their doorsteps.

          And, if he’s neutered, if he manages to sneak out (happens sometimes), he won’t be adding to pet overpopulation.

        • Polli, I now have a new kitty and he is an indoor cat.  He is neutered from the Human Society.  Thank you.

        • My kitty cat is a roamer, he loves the outdoors. We live out in the country and have about an acre of land, he has a choice to come in or stay out. He is neutered and has his claws.

        • My cat is the “culdasac cat“.  Everyone knows her and she does get around.  They all seem to love her and they know her name.  She comes into our garage at night and in bad weather...otherwise...she usually lays around on our front porch.  She is neutered and has her claws.

        • Mr. Murphy is both indoor and outdoor. He sleeps on my bed all day. He sits on the back patio in the sun late afternoon. He makes the rounds in our yard until about 9 in the evening when I bring him in. But then he wants out around 2 in the morning and he’s sitting at my door by 6:00 to start the whole process over again. He’s pretty routine. I don’t mind him being outside because if I call him, no matter where he is in the yard, he comes to me.

        • I have let my cats roam when I could but now my managment says indoor only. I think that its pretty boring for them so I try and keep them entertained with toys. My kitty loves his laser, his eyes get all fierce and dialated just hearing me pick it up from the table

        • i have never let my cats be outside and funny even when the door was open they never wanted to go.

          Where i am there are coyotes, and i am not going to provide them dinner!  

          I have had cats that went out side with me and never roamed away from me. But that is about it.

        • Oh, Tracy, I lived in Washington and saw coyotes roam right across my yard! I never let my cat outside there and she was miserable but those were the rules. Anything predatory in the area and my animals are inside. I took my dog into my yard on leash to potty and always carried a big maglight flashlight with me. I hated having those awful creatures in my neighborhood. We even had cougars!

        • My cat used to go outside until last summer.  Now his is an indoor kitty, because he kept getting into fights with other cats or perhaps even worse! We were always taking him to the vet to get bandaged up, so I just gave up.  I think it’s safer for him to be inside now.  

          I did just get another cat and they play together with toys to keep busy. They are both neutered and have their claws.  We use a scratching post and a piece of carpet with cat nip to keep our furniture from getting ruined.  

          we love them!
