Well I found his owner. He's been missing since the beginning of September. So I say THUMBS UP for picking up stray cats.

Yeah I feel bad because it was a mistake on my part. I checked the pets section on Craigslist.... I did not think to check, or even know it existed, the lost & found section. But I posted my found ad on Craigslist and thankfully caring people out there saw my post, used their awesome Craigslist searching skills, and found the "lost cat" ad and notified the owner. This cat is definitely the same cat, she sounded so thrilled in her email to me to know that he was found... and I am soooo glad he has a family to go back to.

I was starting to feel bad for picking him up so thankfully it ended up being the right decision.

That's an awesome ending!

None of the animals (dogs or cats) around my house are ever willing to come near enough to me to grab.

I was super surprised he came up to me because I know my cat would never be that trusting! But he was a complete sweetheart, thankfully he just has that kind of personality otherwise he probably never would have been reunited with them.

We called the owner to make sure she got the cat and she said they went and got him as soon as AC opened, the cat was sooo glad to see them and they are just still completely stunned that he was found and they have him back. It's a warm & fuzzy kind of day!

as soon as dinner time hits, I swear everybody along the main road to my house puts their cats outside.

The other day, my mom and I were walking and this cat just ran right up to us like "I own this street, bitch" and demanded pets. My mom kept saying to it "please don't follow us home. We have too many pets as it is, but if you follow me home, I won't be able to leave you out in the cold..."

What!? Where are the pictures!?

That's great he got reunited with his family. Kudos to you for caring about the kitty. I wouldn't have been able to leave him either if he was that friendly.

I second this. My former neighbor had a cat that went up to *everyone* and if he didn't have a collar on I'm sure someone would have "adopted" him. My own cat used to eat as several houses besides my own, too, according to the neighbors.
