Aww, Gus! I hope he finds a place to go soon! We actually get in a lot of friendly cats who were neutered and ear tipped as part of TNR. They obviously belonged to someone at some point, but people let them out and they start hanging around with the ferals. Then when the TNR people start trapping, they're usually doing everything quickly and sedating the cats right in the traps before removing them for surgery, so they don't notice when some cats aren't actually feral.

I don't understand why the big rescues won't take him just because of the ear tip if he's not feral. That's really stupid! If no group will take him, you can try putting fliers up at vets offices and pet supply stores saying he is for adoption. It's a plus that he's already neutered. You might be able to find a low cost place to get a combo test & vaccines, and then ask for an adoption fee to cover the cost, or require that the adopter make a vet appointment to get all of that done before you let him go home. It's really nice of you to help this poor kitty!

Gus is such a handsome man. I wish I could help.

I'm hoping so hard for this to work out for Gus. Keep us posted and thanks for feeding/snuggling him in the between time.

I think Gus has moved on. I'm trying not to cry but I can tell that's going to be unsuccessful. We were away Friday and Saturday and so weren't able to feed him from Thursday night until Sunday morning. I just want to help him be safe and loved :*(
