Male orange cat found on 3/24

March 27, 2011

My neighbor just found a very friendly male cat. This kitty wandered into his house, near 48th/Baltimore. He’s a skinny guy, pale orange w/whitish chin, long-haired, bobbed tail (actually looks like it could have been cut off). It appears he’s already neutered. If you know of anyone who’s lost a kitty like this, please get in touch w/me. No photo.
