Hello Natasha. I apologize for the late reply. I didn't have this forum set to be notified of replies to my post. Your service is appreciated. You must have a good heart when it comes to animals. To ease your mind, let me report to you that I DID visit my neighbors and DID leave cards with contact information on the day the cat was found. And one neighbor did call me back. In any case, thank you for your advice.
The neighbor also bemoaned the frequency of kitten appearances in the same location. I have now found two kittens apparently left there, a few months apart. Which led me to the hypothesis that maybe they are being abandoned in the spot where it is plainly obvious that well-heeled people own cats. Again, due to the fact that large cat litter bags are left on the street directly in front of their homes.
It seems plausible. And could be remedied easily, in my opinion. Food for thought.
In any case, this cat will be available for adoption tomorrow. He is a charmer and loves to cuddle as well as play. He is not timid, quick to adapt and seeks human companionship. This cat would make a great addition to a loving home!
