    We do not own a cat

    However, one has been trying very hard to convince us we do. We have been feeding him, and he has been coming inside for limited periods of time over the last month, and his* (gender unknown) name is Tiger. He has been around, greeting me at the mailbox, since we moved here a year and a half ago, and twice has worn a collar, once it had "Tiger' on it, so that's how we know his name.

    I have been trying to find him an actual home - the people upstairs also let him in, sometimes for the night, because they feel bad for him, but he cannot live here, or there! So now a friend of mine is probably going to adopt him, over the next day or so, we'll take him to a vet nearby, where they can do a gender check, see if he's been neutered, and scan him for a chip, which they said there would be no charge for given the circumstances. And if all goes well, Tiger may have a real home after Wednesday!

    So here's our wanna-be-kitty, I figured you guys would enjoy seeing him!

    He is so lovely! Maybe the vet can find a chip or tattoo on him and see if his owners want him? Though it seems unlikely.

    I hope all goes well at the vet and that Tiger has a great furrever home!

    Handsome orangie! Oooh so glad you are looking out for him. Someone cared about him once upon a time to get a personalized collar. But apparently, he did not take to them. Will you friend be able to keep him as indoor only? Will Tiger agree to be indoor only? Can you keep us advised of the process please? LOL
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    Obviously he has no problem being inside. He looks quite content. Hopefully he will have a new home soon - one where he will be loved and cared for furever. Thanks for being his surrogate Mom, Karen!

    Chances are it's a male. 85% of all oranges are males.

    I'm glad you guys are caring for him. I hope you find a wonderful home for him.

    Awwww, he/she is a handsome/ pretty kitty. I have a thing for Orangies. Every one I even met has been such a sweetheart.
    This looks like one of my porch kitties that come every afternoon for dinner. He once had a blue collar, but outgrew it years ago.

    apparently he wants a co-owner :P .

    genetically he's more likely to be a he.. and besides he once had a collar with a manly name .. if you can't tell if he's a he.. he's probably neutered..
    could it be someone neaby's cat?.. that they let outdoor too? might wanna post ads and see if he has owners
