For the past 7 days my wife & finally myself, have been trying to catch this cat that looks to have been let-loose or abandoned in the nature preserve that
is near us. Winter is not far away & this property has fox & the occasional coyote .
It's in good shape & will come close to us, so not feral. No collar, but is may have a chip(which all animals are required to have that will reveal its owner)
We called animal control & they came out last Friday & tried for an hour to lure it close enough so that it can be caught.
Since the land is the city's, no traps are allowed.
Yesterday it was eating food off my wife's hand...alas no cat carrier. We did buy one shortly after that & came back, but it was not there.
So we will keep trying for awhile, bringing it food every time.
Kudos to Mrs. SA who was able to nab this little guy by the scruff of its neck & with my help stuff him in the cat carrier.
This shot was taken at the Humane Society, a final farewell. Our Humane Society does not euthanize animals. The cat will either live out its days there or be adopted.
