Kitty walked in the door.

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
So the other day we had our screen door propped open a bit and in strolled a kitty. Not the typical cowering stray that zips this way and that when you go near it... this cat acted just like it owned the place. Peculiar looking cat, with very short ears and a long body, and a grey/black stripped pattern, though it being skinny might give it the elongated look...

Anyone know a breed that would look like that, or if once in a while a cat draws a gene and gets shorter ears? This cat would look like a curled earred cat without the curl... about that size of ears.

Here he is:

Hello and welcome to the site !
Your photo is very large and a bit distorted, but I think he looks like a normal DSH kitty

What have you decided to do about the kitty - do you think he might belong to someone ?

Well glad yo dropped in to join us and keep us posted about kitty

Hmmm....those ears! Surely this cat must belong to someone! To me, it looks like a loose Scottish Fold.... I would put up flyer all over, contact local shelters, the works.

Hi and welcome to TCS! What a cute kitty!
BTW, is there any way you could shrink the picture? For people like me who have dial up it's a bit hard to open the thread and look at the picture.
That picture is 1600 x 1200 pixels and the maximum width is 640 pixels I believe. I posted too large of pics the other day, too.

Now that someone mentioned it, it looks closest to a scottish fold... perhaps mixed with a regular DSH.

Thanks the ident.

The cat is a male unneutered... a little old for the operation... Anyone have any experience neutering at an older age? The cat is still young I think, but probably 9 months - 2 years.. I'm not that good at determining age.

We let the kitty go, and it came back... We're considering keeping it since it's so good natured. We might put up flyers in the neighborhood to make sure it isn't a neighbors cat. When you call shelters do they log the call and listen for people calling looking for their missing cat?

I volunteer at the local humane society. Here, we pin up a little "lost cat" ad on our lost cat board in our facilty. We check that whenever a stray comes in or someone calls about one they found.

Welcome to the forum!!

I was thinking Scottish Fold as well, he is a cutie for sure! Yes. please try to find out if he belongs to someone before you decide to keep him. About 15 years ago one of my kitties disappeared and still wonder whatever happened to him

He is definitely not too old to be neutered, he's still young. Actually I don't think there is an age limit for a cat getting neutered.

Nope, there is no age limit on neutering. It is a wonderful thing to do for the cat no matter the age.

When you take the cat to the vet, they can check for a microchip. Had that happen to me a few months ago when I "adopted" a little stray
Otherwise, call the local humane society and animal shelters. The family that lost the cat I had was going crazy trying to find her.

This is a beautiful boy Definitely was a recent pet to be comfy with walking into your home.
