He's gorgeous! And yes, neat story. While I can understand wanting to keep kitty, they should do the right thing and have him scanned for a microchip. I sure hope my lost kitty ends up with someone who will do that.
But if not, I hope she at least ends up with a family that will adore and dote on her the way the people whom this curly-eared, bobcat-ish little guy has adopted.
It's sad that so many people have no regard for life, other than their own. That said, these guys have given me far more than I could ever give them. They are terribly spoiled, though I drew the line at getting them each their own dog to torment, they have to share.
