A cat came to my door on a …

I am still visited by the ‘would be’ stray cat who lately looks rather more sad than when he first appeared in our neighbourhood. He no longer has a collar. His fur looks duller. He looks thinner than he used to look … and those piercing, blue eyes stare unblinkingly as he sits and miaows in a pleadingly soulful way for some food. I always give in … and he bounces about so happily and scoffs with total abandonment. My cat tolerates him a little more than she used to but not to the point where he can pass the threshold.

“A cat is only a spit away from its wild relatives for you can never really own a cat. It will tolerate you but only for as long as you are useful. It will make you do its bidding. It will make you want it – but never confuse its gentle rubs or melodious purr for love for a cat is a survivor and it saves its affections for itself.” Anon

That cat is absolutely beautiful. It is so sad someone dropped such a beautiful cat off.

Beautiful cat. I wonder where he belongs. They tend to choose the home they'd like to live in though - perhaps he's chosen yours!

Hi Polly! This stray cat sure doesn't look like one, he looks so clean! :)

He looks like a beautiful cat. How sad that he seems to have become a wanderer. Sounds like he's working on moving in with you though.

I hope he really isn't stray, he's way to beautiful to be homeless!
