Looking back at things it appears this guy started showing up here at the house around June 20th of this year. 30 days ago today, almost a full month. No clue where he arrived from, but he has been in the yard daily and a few weeks ago decided to start coming in the house and emptying every food bowl he could find...sometimes several times in one day. But he's always disappeared by evening and hasn't stayed a night in the house. Today he came in for breakfast...and someone has put a flea collar on him. So someone wants him to be 'their' cat. That's fine, I was hoping he'd find another home. But if I figure out who is now 'claiming' him I am going to present them with a food bill.

No kidding eh? Clearly the owner is more concerned with what the cat brings in, such as fleas, but isn't concerned to his whereabouts for hours on end or why he doesn't eat alot-assuming of course that he is full when he is back at home again. There is so much more to being a responsible pet parent then just giving them a place to sleep or playing with them when it is convenient for you. As far as the cat is concerned, he is very lucky that he has found your place, generosity is helping him I think.

I'm not sure if it is the actual 'owner' or if it is just someone else that is trying to get him to stay at their house, I do know for the past month I've never seen him looking homeless and dirty, but he has literally sat outside my door LOUDLY begging to come in and be fed many times.

That's the way to go, Find the person who is claiming the cat and then stick them with the bill for the food you fed him, I guess the cat thinks he has found the best of both worlds, Food at your house and a person who wants to take him in, We have a real sweetheart of a fluffy cat, He also lives the hgh life my friends feed him and he eats at a neighbors house, And next to our property is a lovely green field which he can fertilize and where he can catch lizards for dessert, this cat here is living the life or Reilly,
