I'd say he was a stray but he showed up about a year ago (maybe more) fat and sassy with his crazy black brother. He stayed. The bro. comes and goes. This guy is sweet - crazy brother, not so much. He is one of my outside cats that I can actually pet/pick up/lug around.
When I'm not at the barn, he's on my porch and will talk to me through the glass. I think he had a home somewhere else but now he likes mine. I love the tuxes so I'm all for it! (Plus, any outside kitty that will let me pet him is a plus.)
