I just discovered a cat living under the porch at my business. Poor thing, looks a bit skinny and eyes a bit runny.
So, I went and bought some cat food, wet and dry, and the little darling let me get just close enough to put the dishes close to him (?). I'm assuming it's a him, but I don't know yet.
Tomorrow I am going to attempt to get him to come to me so I can put him into the carrier I have and take him home.
Hubby has said point blank, no more house cats, so I'm thinking he could make a very nice barn cat. . . For now.
The last time I rescued a cat is cost me over $200 and he left when he was just getting strong. I guess his journey wasn't over. I'm hoping this one, if I can get to him, will want to stay.
Of course, I think hubby knows that it won't stay a barn cat for too long. I have a very soft heart for little creatures.
Those of you that do own barn cats, what do you do for them for shelter? Is the barn and hay enough, or do you have a special bed for them? I've never had a barn cat. Any info or suggestions would be very welcomed.
