Well, maybe if AOC continues to hang around, this neighbor will do a similar-type favor for her like they did for OC. Or, at least find out that she does in fact belong to someone and has not been abandoned or lost.
Praying and hoping for that, too! All cats in the vicinity, orange or otherwise, need to be protected, and homed, if they do not have homes, preferably with people who are caring enough to keep them indoors.

AOC is in the apartment community next door. Different gated community. I trespassed looking for OC. I’m not getting involved in AOC. Neighbor won’t be getting involved in AOC. Neighbor doesn’t live in that community either.

AOC is super sweet though. I would almost trespass again just for some kitty loving since OC isn't "on tour" anymore. Miss that guy! I'm still not ready to be cat dad again. But cat grandpa, that's a role I could enjoy. Have the kids come over for a visit. Slip them a $20 and send them on their way again. 😹

...or a can of Fancy Feast and a little time on the cat tower, with a toy. :climbcat:

With any luck there is a person in that neighborhood for AOC like the one who stood up for OC in yours. OC's savior is to be commended. I hope there is a savior for AOC.

AOC might not even be homeless. It's possible that the porch I found her next to is the one she calls home. She walked back to that same porch after I took my leave of her.

I don't think OC was supposed to get out Sunday night. But I'm glad he did. Seeing him on my camera with a collar and a tag is a happy conclusion. I haven't seen him since. I stopped putting food in the feeder yesterday morning. I am leaving the camera there. Until the nights get too cold to leave the deck door open. I might get a proper outdoor camera. I miss that guy! But I don't miss the anxiety worrying over his whereabouts and his future. I'd rather miss him than worry about him. I'd rather miss Krista than worry about another cat. He's been helpful in confirming that I need time after Krista before I fully welcome another cat into my home and life; before I fully welcome the cat dad role again. He has also been reassuring that, when renewed and ready, there are plenty of wonderful cats after Krista that would enjoy this cat playground she helped create. 😻

I'm so relieved, too, that OC has a home and that his people are (hopefully!) keeping him in where he belongs.
And yes, there are so many cats waiting for their perfect cat dad! Tortis, calicos, even oranges....

I'm now following three munchkins on Instagram. I want a shorty tortie! 😹

That video is just precious. It brought tears to my eyes. I just lost an orange colony kitty. He wandered down to a semi-forested and most likely passed away. The area is gated and by the railroad so I don't have access to it. RIP to my little buddy.

O.C. enjoy your new furever home.😻😻😻 I love to hear happy tails. It gives me hope. ❤

Me too. He was with me but a short time but made an impression on me. The video has a very touching arc from outside to inside to deck and then only on the camera before one final video of him with a collar and tag. Taken together with the soundtrack, it reminds me of the first few minutes of Up.

Sorry about your orange. May his memory be a blessing.
