Who's shown up in my neighborhood. I've seen him several times now, but all in the last couple of weeks. No collar.

At first when I got near him he ducked away, but yesterday I put out some food and he immediately popped out, nibbled, and then started cuddling me - more interested in pettings than in eating.

That makes me worry he's not feral - he's abandoned. I mean, feral cats aren't usually that affectionate, are they?

But he's missing the top of one ear; am I right that usually means he's part of a TNR program? So I should just leave him be? (By the way, I'm saying "he" but I really have no idea of the gender)

I am so torn about what to do about this cat; definitely an adult, probably new to the area, hangs out too much in the street (where the cars go) for my comfort, and clearly once you show him you're a friend he's affectionate as hell.

TNR ear-notched cats in most places have a V taken out, so if it's just a chunk of ear, it could be misadventure. Maybe find out if there's a local TNR program and ask them how you would identify?

But also, if a feral is friendly and seems amenable to being a house-cat, it doesn't hurt them to be homed; they usually aren't because they resist it so strongly.
