Hey everyone! So i have a problem. A few months back, just before Christmas I found this tiny kitten at my boyfriends parents place. I roamed the neighbourhood for an hour trying to find her owner and just before i headed back, the owner found me. Something was a bit off about the guy but I just summed it up to me getting too attached to the kitten, so I gave her back to him. The kitten was adorable, the cuddliest kitten and was so calm that whole hour I was holding here roaming around the neighbourhood. My boyfriend's sister has been telling me that the cat has coming around the house and roaming the neighbourhood looking for food. The kitten's owner leaves the cat out side and I suspect doesn't feed it because the poor wee thing is REALLY hungry. I have a huge gut feeling that the poor wee Peanut gets hit as well because every time a raise my hand in the slightest or go to pat it, she freaks out. I know that this isn't just because of her personality, as I met her only a few months ago and she was so affectionate, even when she freaks out she doesn't bite or use her claws. Every time I go around to their place I bring food (because they don't want to feed it) and try to build trust again with her as much as I can. Now she will allow me to pat her while she eats and is slowly getting less freaked out when i try to pat her. It is really breaking my heart to see this poor cat sleeping under our outdoor furniture every night (even in the rain) and how different she has become. I really want to adopt her and look after her, but my boyfriend says it's not my place, that she already has an owner. I don't know what to do, please help!
