From: [personal profile] lastscorpion
We have one cat who actually belongs to us, and 3 others who were born feral in this neighborhood but we have spayed/neutered, gotten their shots, put flea stuff on once every month or two, and feed. ALL OF THEM, without exception, lose their freaking collars all the doggone time. (And they bring us collars belonging to other cats, which is hilarious.)

In the past 20 years or so, there have been 4 or 5 other local feral cats that we've fed and gotten fixed, although none of them were really tame enough to bring them in every year for shots (most of these current ferals were kittens when we started messing with them.)

You could ask your neighbors, "Hey, is this your cat?" and if nobody owns up, you could borrow a cat trap from the Humane Society & bring him in to be fixed. If they find he has a microchip, that'll tell you that he belongs to somebody else really. If he doesn't belong to anybody really, then you'd be doing him & the neighborhood a favor to get him fixed & get him his shots every year or two.

When I was a kid, my mom called neighborhood cats like this "volunteer cats." (Most of them are actually pretty good at not getting run over. And they're generally good mousers, if you have a garden and/or don't like mice.)
