Sarah, I may do just that, as long as my cats feel safe with him there. The three who go out (Wellington, Bonaparte and Ellie) are rushing out hte door these days much happier as they know he is not there. I just hope the neutering helps. But he is, or has been, a house cat and it seems a shame to deprive him of the home comforts and company that he obviously loves. There is no easy option here.
Sending prayers and vibes that your miracle answer comes soon, and that your parents' stay with you goes much better than expected - you are such an angel for all that you do, such a loving, compassionate, courageous heart, blessings for you, too, Jenny!
Jenny, I'm just catching up here, and really hope you can find a home for him, once his paw trouble is sorted out. He's a little love, and if it weren't for Jamie's attitude towards other cats, and the cat overpopulation in my neighborhood, I'd offer to take him as an indoor/outdoor kitty. Good luck, to both of you.
