I have written some previous posts about a stray cat that I have been caring for, it's been a year this month. He has avoided the trap several times and broke out through a drop trap. He has been coming into the office kitchen but only when the door is propped open. He has a feeding station and 2 shelters (one heated) right outside. This morning he could not be found and later on we discovered he had spent the night inside!! He was in the kitchen under the grill, in a cat bed. He stayed inside all day, we put a litter box in the kitchen but he stayed hidden . My gut feeling is that he is just getting used to his new environment-he really didn't eat much-but one of the girls that also takes care of him is concerned he may be sick. I fed him over the weekend and he looked fine. I am hoping he just decided to finally try life inside and is just taking it slow. I can get him to the vet if necessary, but I hate to traumatize him so soon after coming in. He has also let a few of the girls touch him. Does anyone have any experience with this kind of stray behavior?
