questions about a male stray cat
For the last five months,a male stray has been stopping by for a meal or two. I sometimes don't see him for two days. In the last few weeks, he has been coming "home" with deep scratches on his face and ears. I managed to get him to the vet so he got the works...a physical, stool check, distemper shot,had Revolution applied, antibiotics and neutered. I placed him in the garage last night and this morning discovered that he had pushed his way out of the window screen.
I am so worried about him since he just had surgery yesterday and he needs to take antibiotics. I also need to take him in for a feline AIDS check and a second distemper in a few weeks.
1. Can a mature cat who's lived outdoors be happy living indoors only?
2. If he tests positive for feline AIDS, will I put my female at risk? She watches him from the window when she sees him and looks totally disinterested.
I pray I haven't spooked him too much and he returns tonight. Thanks in advance for the advice.
