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!
