Does anybody own this cat?

Lost & Found in Earlsfield

Gwen E
I live in Saint John's Hill Grove and this cat is always around, looking in the cat flap this morning at 6.45 for instance. He's a friend of my cat (her only friend in fact). He is rather mangey and very tentative. Definitely not an alpha male. I don't ... [ more ]

the RSPCA is offering to lend me a cat trap. If he is prepared to get in it, I'll get a taxi and get my vet to dig around for a chip. What's this cats' protection where you are a volunteer?

Joanne that was a very well worded response and I was essentially thinking along a similar vein.  If something is unwanted then I am grateful to anybody who takes it or wants it and usually no good deed goes unrewarded.
Jane L
Yes I agree.  And if someone needs a doormat more than me, well then they must be VERY much in need and they are welcome to it.  I have replaced the stripey Ikea one with a rather kitsch one from the market with wreaths of flowers and "Welcome" in florid ... [ more ]
