Taking in a stray
There is an 8 month old kitten outside; and I've basically known him since he was 3-4 months old.
Back in May 2013, we found 2 kittens.
The mother was in the process of moving them, so he was most likely moved already.
We never found him until he was too old.
We didn't think to trap him at the time, because we had just started feeding.
He's a bit older now, and he is shy, but not aggressive.
He's always outside when I go there, waiting for me to come feed him.
He doesn't let me pet him, but I can get close to him while he's eating.
Not only that, today I saw him rolling around on the floor, purring, and rubbing up against the other cat that also comes around a lot.
He has already been caught once before, when we got him neutered.
I would like to trap him again, and socialize him.
Do you think it's worth doing this?
Can he BE socialized?
I have experience with socializing cats, but not 8 month old strays.
If you allow me to, I will post a video from my facebook page of him playing.
He also likes laser pointers.
So, what do you guys think?
Should I keep him outside, and just continue to feed him?
Or should I take him in, and try and get him adopted?
