Advice on stray cat?
Well, after weeks and weeks of trying to find Jackson, the stray tabby a home, I was finally able to find a temporary foster home with a person who is willing to let Jackson stay on her enclosed porch, that's semi-heated, until a permanent home is found and he will be going there Wednesday. In the meantime, I tried to bring Jackson into my apartment tonight and was going to keep him in until I take him to his foster home Wednesday and he hated being in, he kept meowing, sitting by the door and clawing at it. I also tried to put him in a kennel I had set up in the kitchen, due to not having a litter pan beings I have no cats, just been taking care of him and he's been outside and he really had a fit, so, I let him back out and he bolted for the front door and started clawing again, then ran and hid under my couch, came back out and went right back to clawing at the door, so I eventually gave in and let him back outside. My question is, the person who is taking Jackson is going to kennel him when shes gone, because her porch don't lock and she don't want to chance him getting out in case someone stops over while she's gone.....so, I was wondering how I can get him use to being inside in a porch and to accept the kennel when needed? We just want to get him in a place that will be warmer and safer for him with winter around the corner and with halloween almost here. I'm hoping he will get use to it sooner or later, but, I would like to make the transaction as stress free as possible for both Jackson and the person fostering him.
