:D I just found a beautiful cat in my backyard. He comes up on my porch very willingly and comes up to me and meows. I leave him water and food and I'm sure he eats it. I don't think he'll be leaving anytime soon. But, I'm not sure if he has rabies or something. I haven't touched him yet because he has no collar. Should I be concerned that this cat has an illness, or is it okay to touch it? Also, what should I lave outside for him? Thanks a lot.

Ok, here is what you do. As soon as you pick kitty up, put him inna kitty-carrier, or wrap him in a towel. Take him to the vet immediately. Get kitty all his shots and tested for rabbies, FIV, lukemia and such. After handling kitty, wash your hands. If you cant take kitty to the vet immediately, keep kitty in a cat-carrier and keep him separated from your other animals. Always wash you hands after handling.
