He adopted me January of 2018. I live back in the woods, and this little kitten just showed up one day. Not feral, well-fed. He left after a few hours and I assumed he went home. Showed up again several days in a row but always left after a while. One day he just stayed. I looked on the local animal shelter’s fb page to see if anyone had reported him missing, but there was nothing listed.
Some time after that I realized one of my neighbors had moved. I think they just abandoned him.
He IS super smart. I never used to lock my door at night because I’m so remote, but after waking up in the middle of the night a few times and finding the door wide open, I started locking it! Little turkey.
