There is a family of feral cats in my neighborhood. Everyone feeds them. Some of them are fixed, some of them are not.
We are having a particularly difficult time catching a mother and her 3 kittens. We desperately want to catch the mother to get her fixed, but also one of the kittens seems extremely ill.
It's listless, and it has goop in its eyes and nose. It hasn't been coming to eat. I don't know how old it is, but it's weaned because it's eating kitten kibble.
It's like they have started to learn what the traps look like, and now they won't go into the traps. We're catching a lot of possums though.
Is there some way to medicate it without catching it? I thought of getting some antibiotics and putting it in the food. Would that harm the healthy cats?
