Butterscotch


Spotted twice recently around campus: "Butterscotch." Quite thin, drinking from a dripping faucet on one of the university-owned buildings. Dirty face and ears with many little nicks; looks like a homeless tom, a little tired and roughed up. Poor guy has a wound on his front left leg ... He allowed observation calmly, but wasn't having any social interaction. Check out the tomcat equipment in picture #2 (you can enlarge pictures in a new window by clicking on them).

Do you know this cat? Seen at a giant old house on Woodlawn between 55th and 56th and today at Dorcester between 56th and 57th. Does somebody feed him? We'd like to TNR him (or, if he's friendly, TNfoster him).

Oh what a wonderful face! But yes, Butterscotch looks like he has been through a lot.

I saw this cat yesterday in a driveway on Woodlawn, between 57th and 58th, I think. He was muddy, and I thought he lived in the house. That explains why he didn't want to play with me...

I may have just seen this cat today when riding my bike down Kimbark between 56th and 57th. He (?) crossed from the west side of the street into the the yard at Ray school.
I thought he looked familiar, which led me to look through older posts here. If it's not Butterscotch, then there's another orangey-white cat with a dirty, roughed up face wandering in that area. No collar, of course.
