#1 These Two Showed Up On My Porch A Few Days Ago Looking For Food And Love

They wanted all the love and whenever my husband and I would go back inside, they would yowl at us until we came back out. I always saw them at the neighbors so we assumed they belonged to the neighbors, but after further inspection, they were kind of skinny, covered in fleas, and not fixed. Husband said no more cats! So I figured I could at least treat them for their fleas, feed them, and possibly TNR so they don’t reproduce when they get older. I set up a little shelter for them as it was kinda cold out. When I woke up, I was sad to see that they were both gone. A few hours later though, my husband wakes up and I tell him how sad I am that they aren’t on our deck anymore. My husband (Zack) then proceeds to smile and say “Well what if drunk Zack went outside, thought to himself ‘Wow it’s chilly outside. Let me call the kikis inside’ and went ‘here kikiki’ and then both kitties came running and I grabbed them and threw them into the house?” at this point I don’t believe him and walked downstairs because I’m the one that catnaps strays, not him lol. Well low and behold, these two orange babies are in our spare room. So no longer, my house, not my cat, but my house, my pumpkin and spice

#3 This Gorgeous Boy Had Been Coming To My House For Breakfast For Years

Jack was abandoned when his humans moved 7 or 8 years ago. I’ve been working with him for at least 5 years. As soon as he started coming inside my house, not my cat, I knew it was time. He was way too skinny and covered in fur mats. He has definitely become my cat. In the 7 or 8 weeks since he became mine, he’s now fixed, has his vaccines, got a flea treatment, and had dental surgery. Now, we’re working on putting some weight on him and integrating him into the household with the cats who were always mine

#4 My Husband… Not Our Cat

This is Symba a local street cat, he has a home a bit of a trek away but he has taken to spending time with our cats. We’ve had some pretty rainy weather and he’s decided this lap is warmer and drier than being outside or making his way home! We are in regular contact with the owner who is grateful that he gets some extra love when he’s not there

#5 I Now Apparently Have My Own Orange. This Dude Showed Up At My House, Ran Inside And Refused To Leave. No Microchip And No Claimants. He Now Responds To The Name Carrot Cake

#7 Went To My Friend’s House The Other Evening. She Went Through To The Kitchen To Make A Drink

Whilst she was in there, I shouted to her: “I think your cat likes me” she shouted back: “I don’t have a cat”, this is what she came back to.

#8 My House Not My Cat

Image source: Emily Wincek

Sometime between the evening of 4/4 and the afternoon of 4/5: a feral momma gave birth to five beautiful munchkins in a box of clothes I had put on my patio to throw away. I feel chosen. I asked the angels for a “signer sign than usual” (lmao) the other day and I’ve been researching kittens and cats for years. I’m so ready to help these precious souls :’) (I’ll help by providing supportive care for the next three months, hopefully socializing the kittens and setting up shelter intake, then tackling tnr for the whole colony)

#9 This Frail Old Boy, Who Is Not My Cat, Is Always Trying To Get Into My House

I’ve just got out of the shower, and come downstairs to find him fast asleep on the sofa under my daughter’s blanket. Looks like he’s here for the day!

#11 Two Weeks Ago, I Came Home Late And Heard The Neighbour’s Cat Meowing Repeatedly And Roaming In Front Of The House

Image source: Etsocal Spencer

I opened the door to let her to her house through our garden and went to bed. When I woke up, she was still there, and came for cuddles. « babe, it’s not the neighbours’ cat » said my husband. « we can’t keep her », I said, « Obéron will not let her stay ». She never left. We found out she’s not chipped and that no one has come forward in these two weeks (despite numerous posters and social media research, as one does), and Obéron didn’t in fact kick her out. She’s the sweetest cat ever, she snores and has no counter etiquette. Meet Catherine de Valois. My house, my cat?

#18 My House, My Sleeping Teen, My Grey And White Cat (Lentils), But Not My Tabby

Image source: Lena Royale

I got home from work to find my son asleep with one of our cats and this beefcake. It’s freezing cold and apparently this guy was crying at the door so my son just let him in. Update: the beefy boy is unaltered but way to friendly to not have people or have once had people. He ate a lot of food, watched a couple of movies with us, and eventually around midnight went to the door wanting back out. Temps were higher and the freezing rain had stopped so I let him back out. He was an absolute perfect gentleman. Lentils is chill af and even Kismet, our resident tabby about half the size of this guy, tolerated him with only a few swat.

#19 Shortly After We Moved To A New Neighborhood, A Pretty Little Cat Showed Up At Our Door And Came Inside The House For A Tour

Over time, she visited us daily and she figured out if she went to my son’s basement window and looked in, he would let her in. Piper (as she is named by her owner who lives 2 doors down from us) now has a litter box, fountain water dish, a cat brush, her favourite cat food and cat nip at our house. My son recently moved out so I decided to get a motion sensor camera. Now when she’s at the basement window, I get a notification on my phone and let her in. Best $40 I ever spent. She’s got the best of both worlds between her owner and us, her second family.

#22 My Mother-In-Law Heard Meowing And Opened The Door And This Baby Waltzed Right In

Image source: Ashley Raekatherine

Hasn’t left my daughter’s side. The cat distribution system chose her and they are keeping her. (at her dad’s house) no idea where she came from. No one claimed her on Facebook when a post was made. So yeah. Here is Socks. The multi-toed baby. We gave them 2 cat trees we had extra and some toys. Ps- all her feet have at least 6 toes and one has 8!

#23 So This Guy Showed Up The Other Day. He Had A Chip, So With The Vets Help, We Were Able To Contact The Owner

Image source: Lynn A. Marad

It turns out that he stressed out their autistic son who put him out doors three months ago. Poor displaced guy.. I think we’ll try to give him a soft landing. Update: we’ve been in touch with the former owners family who were so grateful for his happy ending, they offered to pay his first vet bill.

#26 Bought A Microchip Cat Flap To Stop Other Cats Coming In And Stealing Food

Felt sorry for this not my cat staring through the patio doors looking sad. Programmed it to the cat flap and now it comes and goes as it pleases, I’m too soft

#28 I Called My Cat In From The Dark. He Came Running In. Turned In The Lights… This Is Not My Cat

Image source: Kim Fowkes

He was very confused to be in a strange house but friendly. My cat was waiting by the door and not impressed to see that I was holding another cat.

#29 Went Upstairs To Make My Bed. This Fella Says No. My House, My Bedroom, My Duvet… … You Guessed It. Not My Flippin Cat

#30 This Little Man Ran Into My Apartment When I Went To Go Outside. He Arrived On The 21st Of October. His Name Is Octavius But I Call Him 21 Savage

He’s honestly the best and so loving. My house and now my cat.

#31 This Handsome Fella Keeps Using My Cats’ Cat Door To Let Himself Into My House

Image source: Amy Wardlow

His favorite time to do so is 3am. He always announces his arrival, then eats my cats’ food (right in front of them), and then leaves. If he had a little hat on his furry head, I’m sure he’d tip it on the way out.

#33 Found This Cat In Labor On My Porch Today

Image source: Frank Kohl

If I leave her side she freaks all the way out and she won’t let anyone else near her so I’m currently being held hostage in my hallway by a cat that’s not mine. I call this one “Nurse, I smell pizza.”
