Ok .. happy household ... rescued one 6 day old kitten, hand reared, he's been here for 5 years. Then a stray found me, and he's been here for 4 years. All was content for a while. Then a starving, and I mean starving cat appeared - he grabbed food and gobbled it from the floor he was so ravenous it was upsetting. He had quite bad injuries too, I guess from fighting. That was about 3 weeks ago, and since then we've progressed. He eats in the kitchen now, and lets me stroke him - sometimes. Sometimes he goes for me, he's very temperamental. He is getting quite territorial over our garden, and has started going for my very docile boys, and I am not happy about them being tormented, but I am equally not happy about our new boy being uncared for and so thin and scared. So my question is this. New boy needs neutering as soon as. I'm scared to even attempt to pick him up given his reactions to me at times. If he got neutered I assume he'd calm down a bit and his aggression would decrease. I feel so sorry that he's had nobody to care for him, he flinches if I move fast so he's obviously been hurt in the past by humans. How can I get him neutered if I cannot handle him?? I know there are traps, but we have loads of cats around here it would be impossible to find out who owns who to keep them in at night. The main thing is he's being fed daily now, and is slowly getting more trusting but I really think it would be months before I could even attempt to get him into a basket and off to the vet. I also think he has worms, he's soooo thin. I have tried a tablet crushed into tasty food but by that point he wasn't hungry enough to tolerate that at all. I have the pipette wormer, but I very much doubt I could get close enough for that one either at the moment. I love my new fella but need him without his offending articles so that he can settle a bit easier with my wimpy boys! I know he loves me in his way, that's shown in the last 3 weeks, but it looks like he's had such a hard life he's on the defensive all the time so he reacts the way he does to protect himself. That's all he knows at the moment. Any advice on how to get him to the vets for the nad clearance? The 2 wobblies are clearly not very attractive and I would like to see them absent very soon!
