Hi - walking the dog tonight 2/12 my husband came upon a really friendly grey cat around Drake and Schubert. No collar, both ears intact. I read a post from August with a description of a similar cat. Is this yours?

  • Sorry this cat was seen at 2646 N Drake which is closer to Schubert

  • There is a post a couple days back about a missing grey cat named Baxter. Search for the name in the search bar on Everyblock and it should come up.

  • My girlfriend came across the cat this morning, too, and it was super friendly to her. Maybe it's an indoor/outdoor cat? Clearly not feral, and seems too not-scared to be an indoor-only cat who got outside.

  • Hatie - Thanks for the tip. I looked and it is not the same cat

    Colin - you are probably right, but I am concerned that I have never seen this cat before and we walk our dog the same route daily. I will keep an eye on it for now.

  • Just went out with some food to check for the kitty. She didn't eat, but she's very, very in heat. I have a feeling the owners threw her out for a few days to get this blow over because cats in heat can get get annoying after 5 minutes.

    But also not sure she's someone's cat, as one in heat will be friends with anyone.

    Are you still seeing this cat in the neighborhood?

  • If you're right Colin, and the cat has owners who 'threw her out while in heat' they'd be some really idiotic owners who don't deserve the freedom to have pets.

  • Cat Wrangler- cat is now up for adoption at PAWS :)

    Excellent!! Good work.

    Thanks for posting! My heart did jump when I thought it was my cat. I believe someone befriended my cat and took her in.
    Please remind people that a tipped ear on a cat means they are spoken for 😀

  • A tipped ear only means it was trapped, spayed/neutered, vaccinated at the time (which may have since expired), likely microchipped and then released. It doesn't indicate if a cat is being cared for. Some may be tame, so it'd be great to help find a forever home.
