I agree, I thought of the heat in the garage. I went out to check to see if it is livable, and it is actually not over-hot. It's stuffy, but the windows aren't open, yet. My thoughts are if I wait til dinner when he normally comes, it should be cooler. I was just out there retrieving the trap and wiping it down. Of course, the door to the crawl space is in the garage and it's cool down there, so I think that does help to keep the garage more temperate.I think catching this new kitty soon should be your priority. Yet I do worry about you putting him in a hot garage with screens open. With it being so hot with triple digit heat indexes, a garage can get so very very hot. Screens are good. Yet if you give him free reign of the garage, he might try to escape. If you keep him in a carrier or trap and he starts to overheat he would have no way to escape.
Do you have a basement or spare bathroom?
He is so infested with lice and fleas that I am reluctant to bring him into my house with Charlie. I always have the sensation of things crawling on my skin after sitting with him; once I saw the lice, it made sense. There are no outside doors close to the guest bathroom, which means I'd have to carry his cage throughout the house to reach it, potentially shedding lice and fleas along the way. That's a possibility, right? If it came down to this kitty's life or death, I would certainly bring him inside. If there is a way to get him to the vet before bringing him inside without putting him at risk, that would be preferable.
