Ok everybody, please help me figure out what to do about this!
Soon after we moved in here in August, I started seeing this cat around during the day. I figured it was a neighbor's cat, and he was actually pretty small still. Well, then one night at about 3am (my boyfriend works 'til 1 so we're up late) he comes up to the window to see Pixel. So we think it's cute but not much else. Well, gradually he's been coming more and more often, and getting more and more comfortable with us so he stays longer and longer. We thought he looked pretty healthy because he's big and fluffy, but that might all be hair, I dunno.
The thing that worries me is that we see him at least 3 nights a week, real late like between 1 and 5 am and it has been really cold here. It just doesn't seem like people would let their pets out that late, and it's all apartment buildings here, so no kitty flaps. Plus, there's still snow on the ground, and if you see a white spec on his face in this pic, it's actually a tear of eye goopies that was frozen all down his face.
So what do you guys think? Is he someone's cat, or is he looking for a new home?
Oh, and he doesn't have a collar. I was thinking about buying one and seeing if he'd let me put it on him and attaching a note that says "What's my name?" or something. Do you guys think that's a good idea?
