The couple who used to live a few doors down from me moved out last weekend. I'm not sure if this was a planned move, or if the house was about to get foreclosed on (a lot of that in my neighborhood unfortunately!) According to the lady who lives across the street, she saw a large U-haul truck backed-up to the garage about 8pm Saturday night and it pulled away less than an hour later. The house has been dark since, and I have not seen either of their cars all week. The newspaper from Sunday morning sat on their driveway for several days until the neighbor picked it up and tossed it on the front porch. The other morning I noticed a door tag from the gas company hooked onto the front door knob, which probably means their gas service has been disconnected. Last night I came home around 7:30 and saw the neighbors' cat (I think his name is Turk) lurking around my house, he ran when my car pulled into the driveway. This morning, he was outside the front door, looking up at my two cats; as soon as I opened the door, he ran again. Turk is a big boy, much bigger than either Touche or Shelby, white with grey tabby splotches, medium length hair on his body, long hair on his tail - I'm thinking he may be part Angora. I'm not sure if he's been fixed or declawed or if he's current on his shots. I put a little food out for him before I left this morning, and it was gone by the time I got home 3-4 hours later. I'm going to give it another week to see if the neighbors come back for Turk, but it seems very unlikely to me. I would love to take him in, but given how little I know about his medical history, the fact that he is an indoor/outdoor cat (mine are both indoors only) and that my newest cat (Shelby) is only now getting settled in after almost six months, I don't think that would be a good idea. So, for now I'm going to feed him when I can, and see if I can get him to get over his skittishness enough for me to maybe get him to a shelter (rather than letting animal control trap him) and keep hoping the neighbors come back for him.
