Cat 1, Mister Nasty has been around the longest. I'm only 50% sure he's cared for. He can be given water and small portions of food but touch him and you'll get slashed. I've seen him around the neighborhood, totally street-proofed about people and cars. As tough as he is he is totally intimidated by... Cat 2, Orange cat. He can be touched briefly and fed at a distance. He provokes a response in our cats that sounds like they all had their tails caught under a rocking chair. If I open the door someone will lose an eye. He also sounds like he's got a respiratory infection and winter is coming, now he's not finishing his meals. @jt and trouble (GA) In an old post you had the same problem. @JeffJ Did you not manage to eventually get a feral into your home? El Niño is coming so it will be a mild winter here but it's painful to see Orange cat in this state. I suppose step one is getting a photo and posting it on the community mailbox but how can you politely tell someone their cat needs medical attention (and you're too stupid to see that). My vet will push boundaries but medicating a cat that may already be medicated is not going to happen. Taking in another challenge is too much for us right now; lots of family drama and long distance sickness. And if I trap Orange cat and he goes unclaimed he will be un-adoptable. I'm sure if he has a caregiver they were too stupid or cheap to get him chipped. Our last 2 neighborhood strays weren't even neutered, the ones sleeping on our bed.
