    We fed this little beggar outside our front door for about a year

    [​IMG]

    Around July August last year we grabbed him made him our own

    [​IMG]

    Last friday the lil guy ran outside, the dog chased him ( she really wants to play), so he ran up the power pole, jumped on some cedar, stayed there for a while , we were trying to figure out how to get him. Eventually, he fell/jumped in the neighbour's backyard. Coudldnt find him, we put posters everywhere, scoured the neighbourhood.
    I set up a cam at the front door with food and some of his litter (apparently the smell helps them to find their way home).
    Monday morning at 4:00 he was seen

    This morning at 00:30 the dog asked to go out in the backyard so i looked out at the front and there he was. No way he is going out again!

    Yeah, he was, and still is scheduled for extensive/expensive dental surgery. Looks he either got kicked in the face or hit by a car.
    Oh well who needs an American professional when you can have a kitty

    We really tried hard to find an owner last year, all the websites, poster, etc...
    No one came forward
    So depressing to look at the lost and found pet websites

    They are cats. Reason enough.

    I recently found out one of our Maine Coons (who's only allowed to go outside in our cat-proof-fenced backyard) goes on nightly trips over the rooftops of the row of houses connected to ours. As soon as we are asleep, he pushes the attic window open and slips out.
    He returns before we wake up, so we find him quietly asleep at our feet.

    Looks like a happy guy. A cat won't sleep like that unless he feels safe.
    Glad you got him back.

    Our cats are indoor only. Around here the bobcats and coyotes make it too dangerous for outdoor cats. Sometimes humans too. We learned those lessons the hard way.
