Mom came home from work, in the dark. She was distracted by many things including her nephew being gravely ill. As she drove into our carport, she saw a kitty on the doorstep. It was dark, but not too dark to see that it appeared to be me!
Her heart started thumping as she thought that I may have snuck out ten hours earlier, been out all evening, and was now patiently waiting to be let in. She approached carefully, fearing I would spook and run. But nope, as she bent over to pet this kitty, she leaned into the pet and seemed perfectly content. Then, as all cats do, as she stroked her, she stood up. Then Mom ran her hand down her back and up her tail, and there was no twist on her tail. The friendly little kitty looked EXACTLY like me! except for that. White bib, white tips on feet, eyes, feel of her fur, the way she leaned into Mom's hand for pets, etc. Mom was very thankful that I was still safe in the house. She gave this kitty extra pets and loving before she came in to tend to us. Phew! So, I have an almost identical twin living in the neighbourhood. Though, I'm sure this kitty isn't even one year old! I guess that means I look young?

Yes, there is a batch of new ones running around. We think they all have homes as they look very healthy, but not safe to be loose out here. We have coyotes, cougars, bears, wolves, loose dogs, and, of course, cars.

In our old neighborhood, there used to be a tortie that looked a lot like me, momma would always do a double-take.

There a outside cat here that looks like me. he probably has a home as runs in the same direction all the time. Perhaps we all have look alike.

Josie has a lookalike next door but they couldn't be more different type of cats in personality. I hope that little cat will be OK with all those scary creatures around. And sending purrs for your mum's nephew. Toby

Meow, I hope this kitty who looks like you finds a nice home like yours.

I hope your mom's nephew is okay!

Thank you so much every kitty for commenting! Sounds like lots of us have look alikes trying to fool our Moms or Dads. All the kitties we see seem well fed and glossy, but Mom sure wouldn't let us run loose around here.
Our nephew is still in very grave condition. Very sad. Thank you everyone for thinking of him.

Prayers for your Mom's nephew will get better. Mom would not let any animal she cared about run loose. To many hazzards out there.

Many purrs for your nephew. Just a thought the kitty isn't a missing kitty? Just that it can happen if we see a strange kitty around our house the human always checks on line to see if any missing ones match the discription.
