I have a dilemna and need some advice re a semi feral cat where i work. I have befriended a male ginger cat over the past 3 or so months by talking to him and feeding him, i've seen his brother and sister get caught by the pest control and be put to sleep by the Animal welfare league as they were wild.
But "Visy"as thats the name i gave him, is a smart cat, he would lay next to the cage and not go in, so they gave up on catching him. He is now friendly with the guys that go outside for their meal breaks, so much so he's always rubbing himself against legs and i can even stroke him all over, really lovely cat.
I cannot take him in, as much as i want to, as my cat would eat Visy, so i'm asking what would you do. If i take him to the AWL or RSPCA they will assess and after 3 days put to sleep or up for adoption, i'm scared that he will not make it for adoption, it would break my heart, ( big softie on animals). He will need to be checked for cat flu etc etc etc and have his you know whats chopped off, any ideas??
I know he's survived all this time i guess he's around 8/10 months old, but in a week or two we stop working 24/7 and no ones there at the weekends.
