Stealing a Cat

I'm in a bit of a pickle with my cat at the moment. The problem is, he's not actually my cat. About 6 years ago, he moved in with me and Sox (who has since died - she's the picture I use on here). His real Mammy knows that he lives with me now, he is at my house all the time, he has all his meals, has beds and toys, sleeps on my bed etc etc. I told them at the very start that he was moving in and she wasn't bothered. She just wanted him to be looked after. So, now I'm thinking of moving house. Iv'e been wanting to for about 2 years but knew it would be much too stressful for Sox. I asked Boots' real Mammy if I can buy him off them and she said no. She said they might move anyway and it was their cat. So, my question is this? Do I steal him as they haven't looked after him for so long, or do I move and leave him behind? Or, third option, just stay where I am until they move and they'll take him with them? (Which is really annoying because he's MINE! Advice please.

Re: Stealing a Cat

It is NOT their cat!

You have feed watered, housed the animal for six years it's your cat by any measurement you want to use - no?

I wouldn't have even asked to buy - when you move take the cat without saying a word...

Then IF they want to fight for him - let them take you to court where a judge will tell them what time it is...

Re: Stealing a Cat

It's as good as yours, you have fed him and looked after him all these years. It hasn't cost them a penny, never mind offering to buy him. If they claim the cat is theirs then give them the bill for 6 years worth of food.
And anyway, cats tend to choose their owners, and he obviously preferred you to own him !!

Re: Stealing a Cat

Does he go 'home' on a regular basis? When they go away, do they 'organise' care for the cat?
If the answer to these questions is no, then I would move and take the cat.
Take the cat, it's obviously more loved with you, don't feel guilty.

Re: Stealing a Cat

Move the cat to a cattery or a friends house , it may need to live in a cage for a day or two.

Tell the others it has disappeared and then move. Do not let em know where you are going.

Then pussy turns up at your door , " amazin ".

Job's a good un.

Re: Stealing a Cat

A cat chooses who it wants to live with, if it had lived with me for 6 years it would be coming with me, even if I went back to UK.

Re: Stealing a Cat

I'm with you Norman. If I had fed and cared for a cat, especially with it's previous owner's knowledge in my opinion it is your cat. Take it with you - you've earned the right to call it yours.

If the authorities here can't get it right over property possession they sure as hell won't be worrying about one little pussy cat! Go for it! x

Re: Stealing a Cat

Thanks very much everyone - if I end up in court for stealing I'll direct the Judge here to TLF and just say 'they said its ok on TLF so it must be right!' He's mine now, decision made. xxx
