Someone living in a neighborhood near me posted online that they had a stray trying to get into their house out of the cold. He was friendly but underweight and dehydrated.

He has fleas, which we're getting treated, but no major diseases. Very loving, but also extremely jumpy and easily frightened. Gotten a couple little scratches from him but nothing too bad as he's slowly warming up to his new home. Keeping him separated from our other cats for now.

He's about 3 years old and his name is Pancake

It's a little hard to say

We feel like he might've had owners at one point, given that he's surprisingly comfortable with people but he's also not neutered or microchipped. The person who found him put a post up in the local area facebook group looking for an owner but nobody's claimed him.

Getting there. Definitely seems like he feels safer but he's still pretty jumpy and I've got a couple scratches from him. But if I'm sitting he'll also jump right up into my lap

That is definitely not the sign of a stray. My guess is he was owned by someone, but has been living on the streets for a while, which is why he's so spooked and forced into reacting on survival instincts.

Yeah that's definitely the impression we've been getting.

I'm also admittedly a little worried he might've been abused in the past, or at the least abandoned. The fact that he's like 3 but has never been neutered it chipped makes me think he wasn't particularly well cared for

Update, he's still precious, and while he's still jumpy he's slowly getting better at not scratching/biting. He does this weird thing where he rolls over like he wants a belly rub but he definitely does not want one.

We got him some toys and a new bed and he loves it, though he also regularly climbs under the very small gap under the tv stand

Aww my ex's cat did this too! Or something similar at least. First time I met her, she walked up to me rolled onto her back, did this big stretch and looked up at me. She would do this regularly to people. She'd let you scratch under chin and stuff but belly rubs got you the bites.

This topic makes me want a cat now but my roommate is allergic. =(

This topic reminds me of the best thing the Youtube algorithm ever did for me, recommending a vid from this guy's channel about how he took in a stray cat who was coming around his house. Now the channel's just him posting videos of him and the cat. "Lex and Cinnabon" is the channel name, do recommend (think the top few viewed videos are the very early days/encounters, and the first vet visit, lol). And hey, Cinnabon, Pancake, nice coincidence too.

Also hilarious how it starts where he says "I'm not really a cat guy" and then 2 seconds later "so I built this little cat house for this stray cat that's coming around" lol. Of course you have other cats so it's a bit of a different situation than his, but still.

Anyways. I like this topic and Pancake is indeed super cute, please keep us updated. I assume he's still being kept separate from the other cats and will be interested in seeing how that goes...

He was probably thinking how it's pure entrapment.

Honey pot, venus flytrap, exposed kitty tummy... all appealing, all inviting disaster.

My cat does the tummy thing too: it's almost always an adorable trap.

P.S. I love Pancake

the thing is, like every other cat I've had (with the exception of Reaper) loves tummy rubs, my last cat especially, who was a fat orange tabby and the friendliest thing I've ever met. This whole "trap" tummy thing is new to me.

He is, at least until we get his followup flea appointment in a week or so. The other cats both know he's there (as they've both managed to very briefly dart past me when opening the basement door) but there's been no interaction yet. Both excited and worried about it, but we'll see.

Did your other cats grow up with siblings/parents/other cats around generally?

I think I read somewhere that cats who grow up without siblings don't learn the "limits" of their biting/scratching ability so they go full bore all the time? Not sure if it's a real deal or applicable in this case but just something that came to mind. We had a cat growing up who was a solo cat her entire life and my dad was still getting "war wounds" all on his hands and arms from when they'd play around 15+ years later, hahaha.... and that's how I recognized the exposed tummy trap too.

Of course different cats having different temperaments based on their life situations makes sense too...

so we almost always have 2 cats in the house (except in the case of one of them dying) so they all learn to deal with other cats

Pancake brings us up to 3 for the first time

My current pair also love bellyrubs. I was literally stuck, unable to do anything not long ago because I had one hand buried in each of them, staring at a screen that was waiting for me to do something, anything.

But Ashes came along after Neko had been alone for several months without his sister, who was not bellyrub-friendly. She tolerated mostly anything else, but not that. She wouldn't lash out, though. She'd just push you away.

No one thinks they're a cat person until they spend a little bit of time with a cat.

My cat can only be pet on its head and the top of its back. Venture anywhere else and you'll get mauled.

She is the most vicious cat I've ever met and I always have scratches and bites on both hands, but I love her to death

Weird thing is she only attacks me and is so sweet to anyone that she barely knows. Bitch
