Bit of background - this is a neighbour who I’d never met or spoken too till we got a cat. He appears to be a cat lover & has 3 very spoiled cats of his own.
We got ours about 8 1/2 years ago when he was a kitten & he let mine into his house & fed him with his own cats
We’ve had a handful of issues over the years with him bringing my Cat home but it’s always been polite
Last night, he comes to my door (smelling of booze) & saying that I’ve been neglecting my cat & he spends all his time at his house & he’s costing them a fortune in food. Told me that I should get a cat flap as my cat is out in all weathers & comes to him wet & cold.
I was polite & told him that my cat is far from neglected & is in fact doing what cats do & is playing him as he gets fed twice !
I told him to stop letting my cat into his house & stop feeding him. I was bloody raging !! I’ve not let the cat go out at all today cos I know he’ll go straight there but I don’t want to keep him in - he loves going out
I don’t have a cat flap as I’ve never needed one. We’re not out all day & dh is self employed & works from home a lot. There’s only very small periods of time that the cat couldn’t get in - he can get into our shed though so has shelter
Incidentally the neighbour doesn’t have a cat flap either - I checked last night when walking the dog 🙄
