Bounty Kat



This is Sid. He was originally a neighbor’s cat. Then she moved…and left him.

Another neighbor took him in. He’s incredibly sweet. Then she moved…and left him.

Sigh. So, I have been feeding him. During the winter, I made a special box for him to snuggle in.

Three nights ago, while I was less-than-sober, I let him into the house. He spent the night sleeping right next to me. While Gray glowered to my other side, and New Kitty fled.

Last night I let him in at dusk again. And tonight. He’s so gentle and so sweet and yet he has been abandoned twice. The poor dear. A such, I am telling Gray and New Kitty to chill!

    You have such a kind heart. And those kitties have such good taste in their friends.

    Sid is beautiful!

    Sickens me how folks can move & just abandon their pets.

    You have such a ❤️

    Naw Sid is very sweet. How can people just abandon a pet. A pet is for life. They become a member of your family. They wouldn’t abandon their grandmother would they? Or maybe they would. I’m glad Sid found a new nice family.

    I just don’t understand how people can abandon their pets… mine are my children…I picked up a second job to offfset the cost of having two special needs babies. They are both seniors now, and I have had them since kitten hood. Hats off to you Ross, and your desire to give pets and places a second and third chance at life! And cats really are like potato chips you can’t have just one or two or three! Haha!

    As the immortal Ernest Hemingway said “One cat leads to another.” Bless you Ross.

    I abhor humans who abandon their furry friends!! ARGH! You are a very good man, Ross; please let Sid stay with you and Gray and New Kitty! I believe that it’s meant to be. Look at him! He is a DARLING. Bless you, Ross, for your kind heart.

    Ugh, not what you wanted, but how can we animal folks say no. Looks like a beautiful kitty. Grey and New Kitty will just have to adjust.

    What a beautiful story to read while having my coffee, sharing my couch with 3 dogs and 3 cats that nobody else wanted.

    Ok Ross just let him stay. You know you will. I have a new name for you……CATMAN! The hero for our cute furry friends. I know you can’t resist an orphaned kitty.

    It makes me so mad how people move and leave their cats! I know they’re not people, but we wouldn’t abandon a human child like that. It breaks my heart. Thank you for treating him kindly. He is a beautiful cat. I can’t imagine walking away, not caring how he feels and leaving him at the mercy of the elements and more people who don’t care. You are literally a lifesaver, Ross – I adore you for caring.
