My daughter rescued a feral, abused cat with lots of issues. He is strictly indoors, but has a complete terror of confined spaces. She was able to get a mobile vet out to neuter him, but the next year, the vet was simply unable to catch him. She has to move and is at her wit's end about catching Spike. He is terrified of blankets and towels, refuses to be held, and absolutely will not enter dark spaces. She bought a big cage, put food in it, and when he entered, closed it. She thought she had it made, but while she was carrying it to the car, it came open and Spike got out. He finally returned home, but will not go anywhere near the cage. Of course, the vet won't prescribe a tranquilizer without seeing the cat, but that's impossible. She tried giving a low dose of benadryl, but it's so bitter that the cat refused to eat it, even after 24 hours with no food. Can anyone help??
