What a handsome boy! I'll keep an ear to the ground. I've checked the TAILS website and the local paper, looks like nobody's advertised a missing cat that matches his description. Bless your hearts for taking care of him.

AW- handsome boy! I hope he finds his home. Thank you so much for taking care of him. I'd be losing my mind if my cat was lost.

That cat is always around the art building and college & john st. I'm pretty sure he's been stray for a while.

The flea collar makes me think that maybe he's someone's outdoor cat. Good luck finding the owner. If you don't you can always take him to TAILS.

TAILS is booked solid-- i used to volunteer there regularly-- it's where i got him checked for the chip. thanks, though


the collar made me hesitant to take him in. but if he's someone's outdoor cat they really should tag(and specify that he's an outdoor cat on the tag) and chip him. also just the timing of the semester ending made me worried that he was dumped.

I used to volunteer there as well, I didn't realize you took him there already. Good luck, I hope you find somewhere for him to go. He's a cutie.

Bit more of a distance but a very reputable and kind place

yeah that cat is always hanging around. one time i was walking home from a party over there and i petted him. then he followed us all the way to my apartment (i live in the green doors on lucinda). he was friendly until i let him come inside and then he was a total jerk! i don't know who he belongs to but since he had a collar we took him back to john st and let him go and and he went down someone's driveway...

maybe put up some signs over there? he seemed too friendly to be a stray.

yeeaaaah he's kind of an asshole. he goes from being super friendly to scream/bite/hiss. i thought it might be attributed to health problems-- i took him into the vet today and he's got a bladder infection so hopefully i've got that under control now.

i put up signs all over that neighborhood, left a description of the cat and my contact info with the police, animal control, and several shelters in the area.... if someone is looking for him i've made it pretty easy.


if i don't hear anything soon i'll place him myself/find a shelter that has room. my two cats are very displeased with me right now. my dog, however, thinks it's fantastic!

OK! i did some sleuthing on facebook and realized that someone actually took a picture of the cat when it was hanging out with us and the girl who owns him commented on it... so i have her facebook page, but i don't think i should probably post her information on here.

so email me i guess? and i will give you what i found.
