If she is (not 'seems') well cared for i would keep and eye on her but leave well alone. your neighbour is very unlikely to appreciate yor advice.
what exactly is your goal with this cat? do you hope to persuade her owner to keep her indoors or to alert him to the dangers of her being outside all day?
Not meaning to be rude with my questions but would be interested in knowing why you feel that you should speak to the owner
No problem about the questions. I appreciate the input. I'm just concerned about the cat's welfare given that she's roaming around outside near a busy street corner. She doesn't have a cat flap that I can tell. I have no way of knowing whether she's been spayed or not, but volunteering with a rescue group I've seen too many other young, female cats that haven't been fixed whose owners allow them outside and we end up with kittens. I'd just like to be sure.
My goal would just to be sure the cat is being cared for and maybe (tactfully)
educate her owner a little bit. I didn't see her outside last night or this morning, so I think I'll just keep an eye on the situation for now. Maybe the next time her owner is outside, I'll just strike up a casual conversation and see what I can find out that way.
