Another reader is hoping to “rescue” a cat in Southborough by seeking it’s owner(s). This cat is apparently wandering the Oregon Road/Powdermill Lane/Garrison Lane area of town.

I can’t tell you if it’s a he or she. The feline appears to be hungry but somewhat skittish.

The reader describes:

The attached pictures are of a cat that has been coming by my house throughout the day and well into the night looking for food. . . It gobbles down an entire can when I put it out so it seems hungry and lost. It won’t come near me so I cannot bring it inside.

I guess that means that even if it’s microchipped the concerned resident would be unable to track an owner. Fortunately, the cat isn’t camera shy. Here are some more photos:

The reader would rather not post her information directly. But if you email mysouthborough@gmail.com, I’ll forward the message.

Updated (1/14/19 8:53 am): Since nights were so cold, the reader and a neighbor trapped the cat. Since no one reached out from the blog post, they brought it to Baypath animal shelter.

There are some people who trap cats and bring them to a safe space while the owners are found. This is especially important in this cold weather. You may want to to contact Baypath Animal Shelter in Hopkinton.

I hadn’t had a chance to update the post – but that is what they ended up doing. Since nights were so cold, they trapped the cat. Since no one reached out from the blog post, they brought it to Baypath.
