For a couple weeks now there has been a cat hanging around my house... Heres my dilemma, i'm not SURE that hes actually a stray, or just someones pet that they let outside.. Its becoming very cold here in MA..and i CANT stand the thought of him being outside and freezing and suffering if hes a stray...(i'd rather have him put down then suffer that life.. Plus we have coyotes and foxes in our woods..thats a nasty way to die ) We had a dead parakeet on our back porch the other day..that was a bit chomped on... (i'm betting it was this guy..) Not sure what to do here as winter is coming in quick... I CANT take him inside..i already have 8 flippin indoor cats ..plus i dont want to put my cats at risk for disease.. I just cant take the risk. What do i do?? Maybe i could keep him in my cellar?? (no heat in there either though, so he'd still be in freezing weather..) But what if hes someones cat and goes into a warm house at night?? I'd HATE to bring him to be put down then... I hate people... I have traps that i can use to catch him... *sigh* These things really bother me... i'm just not sure what to do here....if it was summer i could wait a bit and see what happens... but its getting sooo cold at night now.
