Miles, from nowhere — a cat story

For the past two weeks, on my way to the park with my dog, I’ve been stopping to see a cat.

He (or she) has been living underneath the wooden stairs in front of an empty rowhouse in South Baltimore, depending on the kindness of strangers, who have left him food and supplied him with a little cardboard house.

With temperatures dropping, and snow coming, and reports that he was getting kicked around on the street corner, I brought him home last night.

Now he needs a home.

Got one?

To inquire, contact me at muttsblog@verizon.net.

Precious and touching. THANK YOU for rescuing him/her before today’s snow and utter cold! He looks quite content with you and Ace…..and we would love to read the ongoing “tails!”…..and cats are easy!….so I know that I’m not alone in hoping that yours can be its permanent home.

You’re a good man John! I’ve passed this link/video on via fb and email but I have a feeling Ace and you are Miles’ home. I have 3 cats and would love reading about a cat in your household too.

It’s so cold! It’s good to think of Miles enjoying the warmth and companionship you and Ace are providing for him. I’ve gotten the word out to my small circle, and I’ll keep looking. If we could find a home for Peaches the Cat, maybe we can find one for Miles. In the meantime, I’m with Anna and would love to read about his visit with you. You are making the world a better place–one critter at a time.

Thank you so much for taking Miles into your home! From the look of his head, I’d say he is a boy. You probably should see if he is micro chipped and also get a snap test. He looks very healthy and now quite happy! Please keep us updated on his story.

He is a little beauty. Life is particularly precarious for street cats. I hope he quickly finds a permanent home. Uh, not that I’m pressuring or anything…. but he does look a nice match for Ace.
