Everyone should have at least one black cat
 
I've been feeding this sweet little black cat since the summer. He is very small, no more than a year old, your typical black boy, short-legged, a bit blocky, adorable. In November, I made him a cosy insulated shelter, which he has spent a lot of time in lately :sad, when he is not looking for a patch of winter sunshine to sit in.

He is timid but not unfriendly; I can briefly pick him up and give him a scratch behind the ears. Of course the food is always the object :laughing: He would be easy to catch and believe me, I've thought of it many times. But there is no more space in my apartment, in fact I ran out about 5 cats ago.

At the end of February, I'm going away for two weeks and there is no-one in my neighbourhood whom I trust to feed him regularly (if they even agreed, another long-shot). I could board him at the vet's - where some of my other cats will be going - but when I return, his dilemma would be even [I]more[/I] acute because I still wouldn't have room for him.

Does anyone have space for this guy? He's a great catch, young, not set in his ways like some of the old geezers I live with :laughing: and seriously behind on his playtime. If he could just get a break.

Oh, if only I were closer. I would make room for him somehow. I have the empty cages that the catty cats are using for beds. I am sure he would be able to go in there until they got used to him being around. And, of course, I would have to sneak him under hubby's radar. :laughing:

I pray there is someone closer that will be able to give this little one a home. :fingerscr

Here are a couple of (bad) pictures. I am feeding him in the oven of an old stove, with the door ripped off and a couple of boards propped in front for protection from the wind and snow. A lucky find.

He had sardines for dinner - oh MY! - he wasn't in his shelter but under a porch nearby, even though it's as cold as a witch's :censored:. We had a quick cuddle; he's [I]solid[/I] just like his black cousins, almost muscular. Then I put him in the oven :eek: so he could go to work on his sardines, and he batted me away. So sweet.

Thanks, Rainbow.
