    Found him in the middle of the road in 0°F (-17°C) temperature, so I brought him home


    Really sweet cat, he loves attention and hates it when I leave the house. Either that or he's really sick. I fed it dry food but he doesn't eat very much of it. Canned food, on the other hand, he devours it.

    Should I contact animal shelters and and see if I can find the original owner? It's a completely black cat, I don't see how this type of cat would be identified

    Either way, I'm going to being him to a vet and see what I can do

    Maybe he has an implanted chip , anyway yes call a few local vets to see if someone is looking for him.

    I agree

    I'm taking it to the vet later this week. If it definitely belongs to someone else, I really hope I can return him to them. Although that means I have cat food and cat litter plus a few cat toys here that will go to waste. Maybe I could start a bed and breakfast for cats?

    Touching ... you've got a good heart :)
    Try going to a vet so that the vet can have a good look at him and make a diagnosis. After that try finding the right owner, and if you can't find him, then keep the cat ;) Or give it to a family that wants one ;)

    Hoping to find a starving little kittie like this one day to do exactly the same thing... Good luck with it!

    What would a flying pig want with a cat???
    Good going, take him to the vet like everyone says, he could have a microchip. Or you got a free cat! Win win!

    I pledged to stay offline until Saturday, and I will mostly but this is an exception.

    The fact you were able to save a beautiful cat's life, and trusted it enough to take it home, is simply heartwarming.

    Not to mention that the cat is literally me.

    You're a freaking legend.

    @David Y. This deserves a mention in the Week in Review, things like this are what make this forum so special.
