Update: Prince has a new home about a block and a half away from his old home. His new owner is happy and getting used to having a cat again. Prince has only made one journey back to his old place but was happy to follow his new person back to his new home. I figure there will be a couple more old home checks before he settles. Luckily it is close and not on a busy street. Because Prince is not really a name that fits him, his new owner has been calling him The Cat, because his old cat carrier says “The Cat formerly known as Prince.” We have no idea why it says that, but Prince may eventually have a different name.
The family that lost their home in a fire is still looking for a place to live. Meanwhile, their kitty hangs out at the burned out house across the street from me. My landlady and her daughter are the primary caretakers right now, but they are gone for the weekend so I am taking care of Prince.
This is Prince. His whiskers are all short, so I think he must have gotten too close to some hot stuff that first day. He’s a sweet thing who loves to be petted.
