Just thought I had to share this comment that was left in relation to this post of mine - Stray cat haiku:
I had a big red cat that came in the same way. Eleven years later we found out we shared it with a neighbour a street away. We thought he went out prowling at night, but he slept in their bed, took his breakfast there and came over to our house right on time to let him in where (more) food, a friendly stroke and a (most) sunny garden were always at his disposal. The other 'owners' never missed him, because they were out during the day. We only found out after he died and they started searching for him.
