I just recently joined the forum and was looking for some advice. A week ago I trapped a cat that had been appearing on my deck. He was badly injured and I knew he needed medical attention or he would have died! It looked as though he was attacked by another animal. With the help of a very nice woman from an animal rescue team, he was taken to the vet and nutered, his wounds were cleaned up, he was given his shots, treated for fleas, along with other various things (the wounds on his head caused an absess in his eye, it is sunken in and he can not see out of it) He came to stay with me last week. I keep him in a cage in another room away from my cat. The first time he came out of the cage he was very scared hid in the corners and tried to jump straight up the wall. Over the last week he has become very loveable. He comes out of the cage on his own to eat and is very calm and can never get enough love. He constantly wants me to pet him and rub his belly. When I leave the room he cries a little and then eventually stops. He still is scared of loud noises and at times looks very frightened when he hears noises. All in all he is adjusting well. The problem is that I am moving next week and my roomate has a dog. I don't know how he will react to the dog Any help or suggestions would be appreciated Thank you for reading I look forward to hearing some of your oppinions.
