    Feral cat injured, im not sure what to do next

    hi all, Update 1/6: i probably have been wrong.. it doesn't seem that he got injured.. rather, it looks like he might've got sick with his stomach, which explains why both sides were tucked in. He was walking weird yesterday but ate at night and spent the night in my garage with 9 other cats...

    no he isn't, only 4 of my 24 cats are spayed/neutered so far, i plan on getting most if not all fixed by summer And yes unfortunately all rescue groups around Houston are not "no-kill", per Helping the Dog or Cat you found. I have yet to find a local group or vet/hospital that can help this...

And i will keep searching for rescue groups, but if i decide to send him to these groups it...

    Any recommendations to help keep ferals off dangerous areas?

    thank you for your feedback, it could be hard to keep them away from the trash because they just really like running around that area, even though I feed them 3-4x a day. I will still work on making more safe spaces in my backyard :)

    Semi-feral kitten not feeling well - am I getting too attached to cats?

    I have found him, but it took me hours and me walking around and trying to pinpoint like a detective where he could be stuck at. He was in a garage that other cats have been stuck in. I got him out Tuesday, but now I got 2 CATS missing.. They're my only fixed outdoor females, and I give them the...
