My neighbor feeds the strays. When I came home earlier today I saw a young thin cat who the other cats were trying to attack. I think the young cat was trying to eat the food that my neighbor puts out.
I was able to put out a can of food and stood there while the young cat ate the whole can of food and drank some water.
My problem is I know nothing about cats ( have always had dogs) what I want to know is if I pick the cat up, it seems to have an eye infection and I would like to get it to a vet. I have no idea if it is safe to pick up a stray cat if they bite or scratch ( I am such a dummy when it comes to cats sorry )
What can I do to help the eye problem and why are the other cats bullying this cat. He is not tiny almost the size of the big cats but very thin, wonder if he could be sick.
An suggestions would be appreciated about what I can do . and why the other cats are acting they way they are.
