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.

I would guess he's somebody's cat, he's friendly and they all act like they've never been fed before. That said, his life span is being very shortened by being outside, so I'd take him in and see if you can have him or if he just ran out the door and somebody is frantically searching for him. After all that, if he's somebody's outdoor cat I'd just take him in anyway. Even if he's careful, they tend to die sooner rather than later when they're outdoors.
