Found: Tabby Cat w/ white paws/chest

Neighbor kids found this cat near Waveland and Lavergne and came to my husband and I for help. Taking the cat to see if it has a microchip. Anyone missing a cat like this?

  • I wish I could have changed the owner's mind on keeping the cat indoors, but unfortunately he feels it's completely ok to let the cat roam around and doesn't seem open to putting in the effort to keep the cat inside. And as the owner of the pet that is...

    I wish I could have changed the owner's mind on keeping the cat indoors, but unfortunately he feels it's completely ok to let the cat roam around and doesn't seem open to putting in the effort to keep the cat inside. And as the owner of the pet that is 100% his choice. All we can do as neighbors is keep an eye out for our furry friends, help them if they are distressed and attempt to educate others on the dangers of keeping pets outdoors, especially in the city. Several kids who brought the cat to us for help are also getting a lesson in what to do and that pets should be kept indoors... so I will take that as a small victory. I have 3 cats myself who are strictly indoor cats who are chipped and wear collars and we take every precaution to make sure they stay inside (one of which was a CACC rescue that had a life on the streets before we got him so he knows how good he's got things now... lol).

  • PortageParkGardener you sound like a wonderful,caring person.We do our best in saving animals but of coarse we can't save them all.I'm sure the owner love's Barack but will never understand why take the risk.Some people are just not as responsible as they should be. Good luck Barack
