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.

Just a point of info, my cat has a clipped ear, because she was born in a feral litter and got spayed as part of a TNR program, but got picked up by a rescue organization and then adopted by me, and is now a cuddle bunny and is currently draped over my shoulder, purring. So the clipped ear isn't necessarily incompatible with being someone's cat, or being adoptable, etc. Which doesn't necessarily help you figure out what to do!
