There is a friendly neighborhood cat with a collar and tag who is always begging for food. I called the owner 5 or 6 years ago who lives a few streets over because I thought the cat was lost. He said the cat is just a mooch and will go wherever someone will feed him.
I only used to see him occasionally, but now it’s like he’s stalking me. The cat does not look over or underfed, but he is always begging for milk (or whatever he can get) when I get home. I was concerned about messing up his diet (he looks a bit elderly) so I would only feed him every so often to discourage him, but this only seemed to make his determination more fierce, and whenever I get home he’s there. The time doesn’t matter any time of the night or day *he’s always there *within 10 seconds of pulling into the driveway. He lives several street over so it’s obvious he’s constantly lying in wait for his milk fix.
Should I be feeding someone else’s cat? Can milk interfere with an older cats diet?
