What should I do.? :(

Okay, so I live in a very small town(pop: like 800-1200), and There are two strays that I have seen . I want to feed them, socialize them. Then adopt them out.

Now, my parents. Don't want me to feed them or anything. They think they will start hanging around our house and all the folks around town will call us the 'cat people'. My mom is going to call a feral cat rescue tomorrow, and ask them what they think.


What to do, what to do?


I would do this all on my own(out of my money. NOT theirs.

I can only hope that the feral organization helps feral cats, and doesn't put them to sleep. Do you know anything about them?

Here are some organizations that will spay and neuter them:

I wish you the best for these cats.

Thank you. Thankfully, there are no colanies(sp?) here. Only two. And one of them is in pretty good shape, but the other one has nearly all his(or her) fur missing. It makes me very sad to see the cat that way.

If a cat has hair missing it means it is in bad health. It could be ringworm. This cat needs help now. Im glad you are willing to help them.

I can't find this kitty . I keep looking, and will continue to look. But I can't find her
! It makes me so sad, I was really hoping to take this one in.


Please, wish me luck in finding her. I hope she's alright .


Whenever(if) I find her, I will be going straight to the vet! She will be quarentined for a few weeks. Then I will introduce her to my other pets.

Keep putting food out--in the daytime, and borrow a humane trap. When the cat starts coming back, and I hope he does, prepare the trap with some strong smelling food. Hopefully, the smell of the canned cat food (fish should attract him, although it's not good on a daily basis) will encourage him to go into the trap. Make sure you have a vet prepared for his arrival, and cover the trap to keep him calm. There are more details in this sticky:

Good luck!

I'm going to call my local Humane society, they have a Feral cat program. And I will speak to them about it. They have a humane trap they give you, you tame the cat, etc.

Remember NOT to feed them the day before you put the trap out. You want them hungry enough to go into the trap.
