PostSubject: Our stray   Mon 18 Mar 2013, 9:14 pm

We have even feeding a stray cat for some time now but he came in Saturday and had a very bad picture wound on his ear. I tried to clean it the best I could but who he came back on Sunday it was full of pus so quite clearly infected
I rang the RSPCA this morning and they asked me to take it to the vets which I did tonight,however the vets advised me the RSPCA will only pay £60 for treatment and if the owner does not come forward in three days then he will be out to sleep.

The vets looked at him and said it was most likely a bite which had developed and abcess which had burst.

As he only needed antibiotics I made the choice to bring him back home but that meant the RSPCA would not cover the bill. Thankfully the vets only charged me for the long last antiobitic jab and advised I could get a voucher from the cats protection to get him castrated.

He is not chipped and given the state of him I am now sure he does not have a home of his own. He is well fed but there are probably another few houses feeding him like I do. In the long run the castration will hopefully stop him fighting and reduce the injuries he often appears with and he can carry on living how he does and I will continue to feed and flea him

The cats protection league have been great today, they are sending me a voucher to have him neutered and it is capped at 55.00. The vets charge 56.00 so I only have to put a pound to

I did not realise you had two now Allie

I swear they talk, last week I had my cat and the stray in the kitchen and one of the cats from next door and another unknown in the back garden. It looked like the cravendale advert!

Yip lol! I think the second one comes down from the farm on the hill above my place, but he spends more and more time here, he is very nervous and scoots off quickly if he see Cassie...

The cat has been taken to the vets today, he is being kept in overnight and castrated and chipped tomorrow. There are also a few wounds that need cleaning up.
I will collect him after work tomorrow and he has to stay inside tomorrow night and then he can go back to doing whatever he does.

Not sure if he will stay with us more now or carry on with nomadic lifestyle. His ears has healed up well but is now completely bald

I don't think he thought so earlier, I kept him in a dog cage until my appt at the vets and he was not a happy bunny.

He is currently sat in a dog cage in th kitchen and he is not impressed. Vets have said to keep him in for two days now but not sure I can manage that. He is desperately trying to get out. He has various bald patches where the vets have had to shave him to clean up fight wounds.
He is now castrated, chipped and de flead

His castration is healing well but I think he may now have some kind of infection. His inner eyelid is covering almost half of his eye in both eyes.
I am going to ring the vets tomorrow to see if they can do anything without seeing him. I can't afford to keep shelling out for him,it was only £20 for everything last week but it will be at least £30 to take him in again and what happens if there is something wrong with him again in a couple of weeks?

He hated being in the cage and is not keen being indoors but I may have to try and find him a rescue place
