    New feral scaring away the cat we intend to adopt. Help?

    Hi all! Calling the vet tomorrow to make an appointment. In the meantime, Kubo has been meowing in the evening. I figure this is normal, but thought I would check in here. He is eating all his food and using the litterbox, which is amazing. We brought in his outdoor house so he would be more...

    New feral scaring away the cat we intend to adopt. Help?

    Old pic since I can't get one right now 😬 Should our main concern be getting kitty into a carrier to go to the vet? Or is it better to wait a bit?

    New feral scaring away the cat we intend to adopt. Help?

    UPDATE: WE CAUGHT KITTY!!!!!!! It was a bit spur of the moment, so a door wasn't closed and now he's hiding under a dresser, but he's inside!!! I turned the lights low, but food and water, litter and his blanket inside. Harp music on my computer outside the door. We are kinda in shock. BUT HE'S...

    We had a check on the brand and thank god, it is asbestos free. Still got rid of it though.

    New feral scaring away the cat we intend to adopt. Help?

    Quick question: we went under and found it's bed. Of insulation. Should we just place it under the deck? It's damp down there. Or if we bring it inside, will it feel more comfortable being in the house? Obviously temporarily. Feel so bad taking away it's dry home 😭 but it's for the best, of course.

    New feral scaring away the cat we intend to adopt. Help?

    We tried tuna the first time with a blanket and then the second time we called the shelter's trapper and put tuna, salmon, and regular food in and at that point it had been more than 24 hours since he had eaten because the trapper was late. He wouldn't budge. Wouldn't even take the trail of food...

    New feral scaring away the cat we intend to adopt. Help?

    Thank you @tarasgirl06 ! Those are great suggestions, a great catio, and some very cute cats. Kitty has been TNR'd before so all he needs is an update on his vaccinations and a checkup. I have been in touch with our local shelter, and the vet is open again. I've been watching Jackson Galaxy and...

    New feral scaring away the cat we intend to adopt. Help?

    Thank you so much for the advice. I will talk to my fiance about it. In the meantime, I will look into another shelter for the new cat. In your opinion, do you think I should close the door to under my house? I am very new to cats in general and really don't know how to interpret them yet and...

    Yes, we feed him daily. He would come twice a day for food but recently has been coming for food and to hang out. We have a deck. Would that work for a catio? Will this help us get him inside?

    New feral scaring away the cat we intend to adopt. Help?

    Recently something seems to have changed because he's been coming 4-5 times a day and coming into the house to check around. Yesterday he came to lay on a blanket I put out for him for a while, which was new. He won't let me pet him yet, but I have been able to get closer to him than before. He...

    New feral scaring away the cat we intend to adopt. Help?

    Preferably make our semi-feral/long time stray a strictly indoor cat. So if I put food out away from where I feed our kitty, that should help? We have a cat shelter as well that the cat naps in in the morning but I think our cat sleeps under the house. We found out the last workman to come...

    New feral scaring away the cat we intend to adopt. Help?

    Hello! My fiance and I have been attempting to adopt the cat that has been coming to us since late October. Our cat is always alone. Recently we have been seeing another black cat hanging around, never at the same time as our kitty. I have a feeling this cat is scaring ours away, as we woke up...

    Need help! Trying to determine if the feral/semi-feral cat under my patio could/should be a house cat?

    Kitty came back. Actually not long after I posted. Even came back inside which shocked me. We went ahead and tried to trap today but kitty wouldn't go in all the way. Must remember the last time. I guess it's back to start again. Feeling more confident, I guess it will just take more time. Thank...

    Need help! Trying to determine if the feral/semi-feral cat under my patio could/should be a house cat?

    So we were planning on trapping tomorrow but kitty came into the house and we thought we might try to just close the door behind it. That didn't work and we scared the poor thing. Worried now it won't come to us tomorrow for food let alone in the trap. We aren't even sure if it will go fully...
