Just before winter settled in he wandered into her yard, saw the cat boxes, hunkered down in one and decided to stay.
Stephanie has always kept a couple of cat shelters in her yard over winter. As an animal rescuer in Montreal, Canada, it was the least she can do to help some of the local stray cats out as the colder it got, the more protection they needed from the elements.
Just before winter settled in for good, one of the neighborhood cats wandered into her yard and discovered the boxes. Choosing one for himself he walked in and decided to stay.
Stephanie left food out for her new neighbor on a daily basis and then canvassed the local area to see if he belonged to someone.
However, no one claimed him, so for now at least, he was here to stay.
As the days went by he became more at ease with his new caregiver, approaching her doorstep, getting closer and closer each day. Soon he was waiting outside on her porch every meal time.
