So, there is.
My neighbors moved out & took their dogs & cats w/ them, but this one cat is still there. It appears to live outside, in a bush at the corner of the house.
Someone put a water dish on the vacant house's front porch; i found it empty & filled it the other day.
I asked a good friend who has a cat about it, i.e. would it be able to find enough food on it's own to survive & he said no, it would probably get all thin & scraggly; I wanted to know if feeding it (not at my house) would be a bad idea somehow & he said it wouldn't hurt anything.
So, I've been putting a can of cat food on the porch next to the water dish every few days, and it's being eaten; not sure by what or whom, though (I haven't seen anything eat the food, but it's gone).
I don't know jack about cats & am allergic to many of them, but I'm feeling sorry for it, I guess.
I find it strange that my distatse for cats is diminishing.
