There is the sweetest tuxedo kitty that has been hanging around my building. He came up to a couple of us and then when I clicked s/he came right up and was arching and leaping to get pet. I checked Fido's lost list and will check Craigslist next. The cat is smallish, white nose and black over eyes and ears. I wasn't able to get a picture.
There is a large part of me that wants to race out and take this kitty in, but I am allergic to cats, have a new baby and a dog and am in a financial situation where I can't, in good conscience, commit to a lifetime of vet bills for another creature. BUT, if there is a rescuer that would help with posting on petfinder and who can help with initial and follow-up vet costs, AND my dog and kitty get along (Big if) I would be happy to foster this kitty until either a good home or his original home can be found.
I'm not sure there is really a rescue group out there that would take this on, though. I've also fostered cats in the past that were not friendly at all, and suffered for it. So advice from more experienced rescuers on my plan would also be appreciated.
Also, I hear that there is a woman in the neighborhood who has been feeding the cats and maybe this one? If you're feeding cats in CH on or near Lincoln pl. and might know more about this specific cat (maybe he's not lost and actually has a home?) could you let me know?
