    Need help, stray cat.

    Having been shamed by NR's wonderful threads about looking after stray dogsI've decided to ask your help regarding this damn cat that wants to live in my house.

    I cannot keep it out, i think it is quite old, a little blind and deaf, and has no where else to go.

    I already have 2 cats, but they seem to tolerate this old cat.

    But lately it was shit and pissed all over my house, vomiting too, i think. I always thought cats never did that?

    I'm thinking of taking it to the vet to get a clean bill of health on it, or am I risking my other cats health doing this?

    ^ Oh, Marmers, do give it a rest.
    KW, best take him/her to the vet. You can add one more. You have the funds. Give you a green for doing so.

    I tried everything to make it go away, but it just wont.

    I'm concerned that it will make the other cats sick.

    Heartworm is spread by mosquito bites so no risk to other cats

    Can you take the cat to a vet and find out what is wrong?

    I'm thinking that is the best course of action, however, I'll need to catch the bugger first....

    Butterfly has expert experience with stray cats. Consult him before you get too involved.

    Vet should be a matter of priority as shit, piss and vomit around where your other cats eat and sleep could be a contagious risk if it is sick.

    If you can't catch it, go to your vet & explain the situation. They may have someone skilled in catching or be able to give you sedatives that you can put in food. The cat does sound sick & needs veterinary attention.

    As for your cats - keep them away from the cat & clean up any vomit/faeces/urine/whatever immediately. Use either bleach or strong disinfectant in water. That should neutralise any risk. Good luck.

    Get it to the vets, cleaned up, maybe laser eye surgery and a hearing aid.

    Use this to catch it.

    I don't know why I thought of this vid. KW is playing the part of Ken.



    get one of these KW but agree you should keep the stray cat away from your cats and clean up after it, you don't know what diseases it may carry.

    Update

    Well I managed to catch the cat last night, hadn't seen it for almost a week, and then it turned up back up a day or two ago, but quite hungry, flighty and nervous as anything...

    Last night, one of my cats, who always gets scraps from the table (the other wants, but then turns his nose up to anything he gets anyway) and I noticed the black and white cat hiding under the table looking for some scraps too, I slipped him some chicken, went and got the catbox and without too much fuss, he's in.

    Feed and watered him.

    Today the vet.

    When the cat recovers. Do you intend to keep it or realise into the Jungle of Jakarta?

    Not a lover of cats (A dog person) but your caring and kindness is honourable.

    Good one KW.

    Any pictures mate.

    Taking in strays can be a tough call, financially and emotionally.

    Well, originally I was trying to shoo it away, but it appears to have nowhere else to go, has decided that my house is a friendly place to be... so it will live with my other 2 cats (+1 kitten I agreed to let MrsKW adopt)

    Well, I tried to keep him away/out initially, but unsuccessfully
