Glad to hear about the posters! My first thought was that this is someones cat who got out and might have wandered off to far and just came across someone she liked
Dori isn't chipped and if she got out and her collar managed to come off she would end up just like this kitty and I think it is important to try to get word out that a cat has been found.
I know how frustrating this can be when an animal just shows up and won't leave because not too long ago we had a stray dog that turned up at our house and wouldn't leave. He had a collar on, but he wouldn't let me near his neck to look at the tag. He wasn't in good shape though. He looked very sickly and had wounds all over. It was the weekend so a police officer came out to my house to try and get to the dog neck to read the tag but he wouldn't let the officer near him so he called Animal Control. They never showed up and the dog disappeared that evening. Our animal control euthanizes animals quickly and especially now that the humane society has limited the number of animals they will keep. I think that was my concern with them putting the kitty in quarentine for fear of rabies.... but thankfully you mentioned your cities animal control is better than ours.
I hope in any case the kitty finds a safe loving home. Keep us updated!
