Stubby (not very imaginatively named) is a fluffy orange guy at the colony whose tail had to be amputated a few years ago. He's kind of part of Hank's gang but the other cats pick on him so he lives behind a fence taking shelter in the structures of the recycling plant. I did put a shelter back there but now I can't access it anymore.
This year Stubby has become friendlier and friendlier, we can all pat him and this summer I started to brush him and even pull mats out with my fingers. I struggle with whether he can be homed and of course now that it's cold I worry more about him and if there's a big snow I don't know how I will get food to him. I've been practicing lifting him off the ground in the hopes I could get him into a carrier but then what? My house is full and I don't even have a decent sanctuary room for him. I'm hoping by posting that someone will come forward who is willing to take a chance on our Stubby, somebody wonderful, because he is a crowd favourite and deserves to be loved and warm and safe.
