Should we hold on to the cat?

We have lived within our townhouse for 1 1/2 years, we are moving next weekend. There is a cat surrounded by our neighborhood that we have see outside almost everyday for the entire 1 1/2 yrs. It is the coolest looking cat I have ever see. I told my husband that I would keep the cat if I saw it the daylight we moved. Yesterday it showed up at our door on 2 different ocassions and it was waiting at the door this morning when I moved out for work. It is now inside our house... should we keep hold of it and possibly take someones pet or consent to it back out to verbs to fend for itself in the cold?
Answers: If this cat is free-roaming and have no collar or microchip, take it. The average life span expectancy of an outdoor cat is 3 years; the average life expectancy of an indoor cat is 15 years. per the Humane Society) Roaming as he is, he is exposed to sly AIDS (not transmissable to humans) and leukemia (viral in cradle and 100% fatal), both of which are epidemic in some parts of the country. He is subject to penny-pinching people, traffic, predatory animals, poisons, bedbugs and cold weather.

Trust your instincts. Save him. The only point you will be stealing him from is the jaws of death.

Do it.
If the cat appears to hold no home and enjoys mortal with you, yes you should. But I would ask around first to breed sure it is homeless. And make sure you enjoy a place for him at your new home.
