Stray Kitty Sighting

Imagine my surprise when I saw this guy wander into our backyard. I’ve only seen a stray cat in our neighborhood two times in 5+ years. Both cats were tremendously skittish and ran off before I could even get a proper look a them. This guy however was on an “Exploration Expedition” of stalking birds and lizards.

How cute is he standing on two legs looking like a Meercat! He sees something on the hillside!

After wandering around in the hillside brush for awhile he wandered back down to the wall, then hopped the fence to the neighbor’s yard. Hopefully the little guy will be alright. We have coyotes that wander in the hills were we live. He seemed pretty tame actually and not emaciated but he wasn’t wearing a collar. If I’m able to see him again I’ll try to trap him and take him somewhere safe. I can’t image where he came from…

  1. Maybe he belongs to a neighbor? We have a number of kitties who wander around our neighborhood – they have homes, although I don’t know how their human can let them out, since we also get coyotes in our neighborhood.

  2. If you can capture him, take him to a nearby vet and see if he has a microchip. I always forget to do that (we have so many strays that wander in from the woods behind our house). My last front porch visitor had a chip! But the owners had not registered him. I did find out who implanted the chip and they told me who they gave the cat to – one of my “bad” neighbors who never takes care of their cats. He is mine now (Inky).
