Anyone recognize this cat?

Does anyone recognize this cat? I want to say it showed up to my group of strays a month ago. No ear tip so wasn't TNR'd but definitely seems fixed. Just making sure it is not a lost pet. Has pretty unique markings. Really hoping it's not another someone dumped here.

Another picture with the markings on its head.

This cat is 100% someone's lost pet or dumped. Came up to me meowing, let me pet him and started purring. I can't believe this is happening again. I hope this one will have a happy ending too.

Sorry, I have so much on my mind I didn't even notice I forgot the location! This cat is at the Mansfield village apartments.

Ate you able to have it scanned for a chip? Also check with animal control to make sure no one has reported him missing.

I will check with animal control tomorrow and call a couple of rescues to see if they can take it in. I would hate to trap it (not sure it'll go into a carrier easily) if I dont have someone lined up first. If a rescue cant take it and I find a person who will take it, I can take it to the vet first for a check up and have it scanned.

Try the Pet Adoption League of Hackettstown.

I am waiting to hear back from them and 11th hour rescue. This boy (or girl?) Is so sweet. Starts meowing as soon as he sees me and just wants food and to be pet. I tried lifting him a little to see if it would freak out but didnt seem to care at all.

Re: Anyone recognize this cat?

Update: this cat still has not been claimed and I am desperately looking for a foster. He is very sweet just wants to eat and be pet like most cats. He is very vocal and demands attention when he wants it. He is starting to get very skinny despite me feeding him everyday. Please if anyone can help let me know. I have been in contact with 11th hour and he is on their list but it's been awhile and still no luck.

Last night my nightmare came true. He has been hanging out inside an empty utility room under the building. Yesterday someone closed the door that was propped open, locking him inside. I could hear him frantically meowing and scratching the door. I called the emergency number for maintenance and after 3 hours someone came out to open the door. I am worried this may happen again.

If he is skinny he probably has worms. You can order cat dewormer on amazon and treat it that way. There may be other rescues you can call and see if they can get him a foster. Poor little guy, I wonder if someone dumped him?

Jesse someone definitely dumped him or perhaps he got lost.

He could have worms but he also might not be getting enough food as there is competition with the other cats around. I try to hang around and make sure he gets some but after I leave the others may scare him off. It's tough trying to make sure they are all fed. I'll see if I can get some dewormer and give it a try anyway, cant hurt.

I have tried PAL as well no word from them either. Not sure of any others nearby that would take him. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Why do people dump their pets, It’s so mean. Don’t get them if you can’t take care of them. And if you fall on hard times find a home for them, dumping them is just cruel.

Jesse I emailed you back, not sure if you received it or perhaps went to spam mail.

I have liquid dewormer you can have. If interested send me an email.

Also try Eleventh Hour for a rescue


PAL has taken all the cats from Pet Smart and Pet Valu into fosters...so don't have any extra room at this time. Have you contacted animal control/vet offices to see if anyone will claim him? WRNJ has pet lost/found?

Re: Anyone recognize this cat?

Update: thank you everyone for your replies, I dropped this cat off at 11th hour rescue yesterday to be checked out and put into a foster home! I'm hoping everything went well because he was in pretty rough shape. Very skinny but still super affectionate. I had to keep him in a room for a few hours before taking him and he seemed so glad he could finally relax. (See picture attached )
