Look, he put the cat out so I cannot see him as the legitimate caregiver of this kitty any longer. We have a law out here in the mountains. You feed it, you own it. People like that guy just make me grind my teeth and growl.

Keep us abreast of the outcome, please?

All depends on city ordinances but mostly cats running around are fair game. It is different if you were to take the cat out of their backyard, that is tresspassing and stealing property. And from the cats POV, if he is neglected and roaming it is in his interest to find a family that will care for him.
Our mom does rescue, she lists cats that are adults and neutered as found(could be a lost cat, a partner dispute and somebody dumped partners pet to get back at her etc) Or kittens under 6 mos. But over that and if they are roaming owner has no right.
For example with me I fed at their feral colony 5 years before they took me in b/c I got so sick. Owner turned up and wanted me back but he was going to let me roam so mom ask to surrender me to her, he did it. She didn't adopt me but I'm one of her foster cats(I got declawed and thrown out geez and now I'm 9 so can't go out again)
