Haven't seen him again Patsycat. I'm coming to the conculsion that he must be a new arrival who's moved into one of the new apartments or the new house that were recently built nearby. Could be he's one of those who go cadging for food/affection when they're outside.
Cats can spot an easy mark from a long way off. They have intelligence, but absolutely no scruples whatsoever.

Why should they have scruples? That's what they have claws for

Re: Help! What to do?

Ah yes, the "I'm a starving kitty, gimme food and love and i will cuddle you forever" face. Along with a little pathetic meow... and then the purr.

And before you know it. Sleeping in your bed.

Gets me everytime!!

Sounds like some men i have known!! But they soon scarpered, the cats chased them away!!

Re: Help! What to do?

Well, I don't know what to think. Spotted the cat following the neighbour when I was down in the laundry room so dashed upstairs to see if I could determine whether it's their cat or not. It followed her around the garden and up to the front door, almost going inside. She did talk to it a bit, but that doesn't mean much - I talk to it. At the moment it's still outside their door.

Maybe they got a cat to keep the mice out of their business storage area?

Maybe next time ask the neighbor if it is her cat?

Re: Help! What to do?

Not sure I'd get an answer as it's the neighbour who took us to court a little while ago. But I might try in my basic French next time I see them together.

Re: Help! What to do?

Well, was closing the shutters up out the back and thinking I wonder how the cat's doing. Looked right and there he was, sitting on the neighbours porch again.

He's not theirs, I did ask when I saw her talking to the cat the other week.

If he's around tomorrow I may try and get hold of him. Not sure if he will be though, I expect the workmen to be back digging, banging and thumping again after the holiday today.

Re: Help! What to do?

Update: the cat has been spotted on and off over the winter, usually sitting on the neighbour's porch. Seems okay and quite happy. Has taken a real shine to the neighbours, maybe because they feed him once in a while.

Almost managed to get him in at the beginning of December, but he squirmed out of my arms before I could get him indoors.

Saw him again this morning while I was mowing the lawn and he came over and accepted a few strokes. Then scarpered when I started the mower again.

I can only assume he's a cat who moved in to one of the new properties last year and made friends of some of the neighbours.
