That is great that you are at least thinking about rescuing the stray.
I have to tell a great story about a stray that we rescued.
Actually, my husband was the real hero! There was a cat stuck way up high in one of the trees in our boulevard. We called and called for the cat to come down, but even though he tried, he was just too scared to come down and was stuck high up in the tree. My husband and the neighbor got out the tallest extension ladder that we had. It still was not high enough to reach the desperate cat - even with my husband on the highest rung. We did not know if the fire department rescued cats anymore, so my husband being inventive, pulled his truck up to the tree and then put the ladder in the truck bed! The additional height made it so that he was able to pull the poor cat down to safety.
And yes, this stray also needed his shots and treatment for fleas and ear mites
. But, it is all worth it to have been able to save him.
