I couldn’t imagine a better outcome for this lovebug. Huge thanks to Elisabeth!!
In speaking with neighbors I managed to find he “belonged” to someone … in fact, his story is pretty special. He’s been stray since a very young age, probably born in the street. The family took him under their wing, fed him and ensured his wellbeing. When they moved into my neighborhood a few months ago they couldn’t bring themselves to leave him behind and took him with them. So he had changed alleys! 🙂 That explains his sudden appearance.
Gros-Mine rarely entered in the house because the family in question also had a male and 2 females and none were sterilized so they tried to avoid any meetings…
After talking to the family and seeing their reality (they have eight children and so have many other priorities), I proposed to sterilize the whole cat gang via some organizations that do them at a reduced price.
Gros-Mine is now neutered, he also wears a collar with identification and can enter into his house when he sees fit! 🙂
