We have a stray cat around our house. We have been feeding him/her and would like to have him as a permanent garage cat to keep mice down. Does anyone have hints on how to gain his trust so we can get him to the vet?
If your feeding the cat, he may stick around. We had one stray tom cat end up staying with us. But for quite a few years he would come and go. You could pet him though. I have another one now, that is wild. He comes and stays for a while and then heads out, and comes back. Sometimes I can see him, talk to him and he will sit there, but most of the time he runs and hides. I don't know if you can use a live trap and catch a cat? I know you would not have a happy cat though. Just feeding him might be enough to make him hang around. If he was a tame cat, time might be your answer. Good luck.
