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 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 more 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 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.

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

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.
