We have a stray who has adopted us at our weekend retreat. He went from running from us to now living outside our place in a shelter we purchased for him. He is very loving - an unneutered male probably about 3 years old. I want to take him to the vet soon - think he has a cold, runny eyes, sneezing, etc. Also want him fully checked out. I am sure my husband could get him into a carrier -surely using gloves as this has never happened to him before. Is there anything special I should tell the vet when I make the appt? I think the good guy will have to be sedated for an exam/blood work etc. Any advice as to how not to have my whole car sprayed with urine as I suspect he may do out of nerves in a car ride? I would like to know what others have learned from experience in getting a not so domesticated outdoor cat to the vet for the first time. Thanks for your advice in advance.
