I understand that Lakia doesn't feel safe asking about keeping the cat, and also agree with her feeling that "this cat doesn't want to be kept," but I bet that if she did ask, Muffler would let her (pending having the cat checked for chips or other indicators of ownership). Indeed, I suspect that Muffler knows all about the cat and is looking the other way from the bits of food going missing.

That's my guess too. Although the Muffler might point out gently that he might not be a cat who wants to be kept, and suggest feeding him officially, in a dish, outdoors where he likes to be; and seeing whether he will eventually come, that way, to consider this place his. Which is different from keeping him but still builds the connection that Lakia wants.

Also, I think her tail probably already does look as fine as that. She just doesn't know it, since she doesn't like her tail very much. I hope the cat can help her learn that a tail isn't, on the whole, such a very bad thing to have.

I hope so too. Often one has to see a quality in somebody else in order to recognize it in oneself.
