This is Otis, and he is now homeless. He doesn't understand what happened. It is very obvious that he had a home. He loves people. He showed up at our feral feeding station and now has taken up residence under the deck of a neighbor friend of ours. They cannot keep in due to the health situation of their 3 csts and we cannot keep him because of our six cats. He wants inside in the worst way and cries to be let in. He even hops up on their window planter box to ask about coming inside. They are feeding him and have a box out for him, but is is getting colder. Gosh he wants inside, you can tell he is used to that. We think he was either dropped off in our neighborhood or his family moved away and left him behind. When our neighbor goes outside and sits down on her back deck Otis jumps in her lap, lays down and starts to purr.
The neighbors took him to the Vet and Otis is healthy, about 4 years old, tested negative on all the bad stuff, is neutered and is now up-to-date on all his shots. He still has his claws but never puts them out, not even at the Vet. The Vet said Otis is one of the most loving cats he has ever met, and that says a lot coming from a Vet.
We need to find Otis a home, a foster, or a no-kill shelter that can help him get a home. He longs for the human touch and would love to be loved. Please share this information with everyone you can think of and help me help Otis get a home. We can arrange transport, somehow we will. Trust me, he is one special love bug.
