Adult Male Cat Seeks Its Humans

By Stephanie Benson

Is this your kitty?

He showed up at our house on Christmas Day and is still here - safe, snug, fed, watered and happily using a litter box.  I don't think he had eaten in a few days, and he seemed genuinely freaked out by being outside in the cold.

Now, he's a great guy, but he can't stay.   We've got five existing adoptees and a baby; it's already Crazy Town here and we're playing musical rooms to keep everybody separated.

He's super affectionate and well-behaved.  He's clean, no ear mites or eye junk or apparent respiratory problems.  It's clear that he is a well-socialized and loving house cat.

If you are one of my neighbors in northeast Pembroke, you will have already gotten a flier about this.  If his home is further abroad than the exotic confines of Mogadore/Phelps Road, please contact me at fromtheboonies at gmail dot com.

If you dumped him, well, who am I to judge you.  He provided me the opportunity to take in a stranger in need on Christmas Day, and I'm grateful for the experience.  In any case the good folks at the Genesee County Animal Shelter (Volunteers 4 Animals) have 'room at the inn' for him, and he'll be taken there tomorrow unless his humans claim him sooner.

I'd also like to plug an organization I discovered while researching my his options: Spay Our Strays.   They rehabilitate feral cat colonies.  They run monthly clinics and the general idea is Trap, Spay/Neuter, and Release (or placement on a farm as a barn cat).

In this case their services aren't really appropriate since I think this guy lives in a house.  However, we get feral cats turning up out of the fields all the time and they drive our house cats absolutely nuts.  In one case there was a physical altercation that left us with a $250 vet bill.  I had no idea there was such an organization, but wow am I all for what they do and hope to assist their efforts going forward.

Thanks for reading!

This is now an advertisement on behalf of our Christmas visitor. He is hanging out at the Genesee County Animal Shelter, where you can go to meet him and maybe take him home and let him love you.

He's a real sweet kitty. We let him hang out in our workshop with us for a couple of days. All he wants to do is lay in a person's lap and be petted. He started rolling over onto his back for us so we could rub his belly.

He also caught us a mouse out in our garage and left it by the door. What a guy!

If we didn't have a well-established collection of 5 house cats already, he would have a place here with us.

You can love him and hug him and pet him and squeeze him and you can even call him George. If you're looking for a soft, sweet kitty to spoil, I am sure that he will love you forever.
