Cat Visitor

A neighbourhood cat which is obviously very well fed has started visiting a lot recently & as much as we tried not to feed it for the longest time, I'm afraid we have started giving it a few treats as its becoming increasingly attached to our house & appears outside my kitchen door at 7 am in the morning when I come down & lets itself in in the evening when we're back from work. I have to physically put it out last thing at night & sometimes I think its just camping outside our door!I'm increasingly worried as to whether its been abandoned or is actually going back home to be fed properly. I understand that it wanders into my neighbour's house too but of late seems to be attaching itself just to our house and I'm torn with guilt & confusion as to what to do & wish I knew who the owners were!!Do you have any advice on this matter as I feel guilty about our visitor to whom the whole household is getting attached!

Answer from Kate
well yes it could be that he is a stray and has chosen your household as his new home. But I can understand your worry.

there are two thing you can do. you could take him to the vets to have him checked for a microchip. they should not charge you for this as it will only take a second.

the other option is to put notices up around your area to see if anyone knows where he lives.

If both of these things come back negative then i think you can stop feeling guilty.

best wishes Kate
