Brownie has been living outside since at least last November when he turned up in a neighbour's garage and I started feeding him. He now spends his days in adjoining gardens or hanging around under parked cars, waiting for me to emerge with the precious bowls. He always precedes me down the sidewalk, stopping every ten feet to writhe in delight and maybe cop a tummy rub.
Two people contacted me, thinking he was theirs but alas, he wasn't.
It would be so wonderful to find him a better roof than a junk-filled garage open to the elements, before the bad weather sets in again.
Truly, he is the sweetest cat. He is not in the least aggressive, a bit timid, which is a wise thing to be in his current environment . Sometimes we sit on the stairs, in perfect communion, while I rub his ears
He is neutered and declawed in front. Maybe 2 or 3 years old. Quite a big boy. No fleas (in any case, he was treated with Revolution over the winter, just in case fleas or parasites were lurking).
He would be a purrfect and oh-so-grateful pet.

He is a real doll. Looks a lot like my grey tabbies. He would fit right in with them if I lived closer. for him that someone will take him in.
Assumptions do nothing but make an ass out of u and me.

We can stick our heads in the sand for only so long before it starts choking us. Face it folks. The pet population is bad ALL OVER THE WORLD!

What a handsome boy he is. I hope someone can take him in soon since he is declawed. :sad:

Good luck Brownie.

Brownie has a home!
In July, a group of young guys moved into a rental nearby and it happened to be right next to the place where I feed Brownie, under a staircase. They seemed to be really nice people, friendly and industrious, painting and gardening. So one day they were sitting on the porch while I was putting out the food and I asked them if they minded if Brownie ate there (no problem) and of course I told them he was homeless since last year and if they ever felt like having a resident cat, he would be a perfect candidate . A few weeks later, a bowl of dry food appeared next to mine...hmmm....and then last week Brownie turned up wearing a flea collar. He still goes on my nightly rounds with me but hasn't been as ravenous lately.

So when I saw one of the guys outside yesterday, I asked if it was him (or one of his friends) who had collared Brownie and he said yes, they now consider him theirs, although still free to come and go. At that precise moment, Brownie appeared from inside the house and I almost cried.

With all the disappearances lately :sad:, it's good to know that Brownie will have a comfortable winter instead of crouching in a cold garage all day, and people to rub his tummy when he needs it. I'm sure they will do right by him.
