Dangers of Stray Cats?
What are the dangers of outside cats to our indoor pets? I'm the first to admit i dont really know alot about cats, I don't really know a whole lot about illness they may have, And a few people said by bringing Toast (our adopted stray kitty) into the house we were risking getting our dogs and rabbit sick, Which is prolly true, but i wonder how true this is? And what are the risks of bringing in other strays? or letting Toast out to socialize with other outdoor kittys? I ask this mostly because, well david asks me all the time like im supposed to know.. And theres a little grey male kitty hiding on the side of our house today, hes not a baby baby, but hes younger than Toast was when we got him, its been a long time since i had kittens around, but i'd say hes maybe half or 3/4 of the way grown.. if that makes sense.. lol i dunno.. anyway, he seems real scared, like he comes out to be pet and if i sit down he tries to sit under me but if the wind blows he runs back to the bushes. I donít like the idea of leaving him outside, especially since one of davids aunts cats was recently killed by neighborhood dogs. (who lives a few houses down) But we donít really have anyplace we could put him to keep him away from the other animals, Toast has actually Been spending time in Tanner's kennel when we cant watch him or have him in the bathroom since we're kind of in the middle of remodeling a couple rooms. Anyway, i donít know what to do, should i bring him in so we can maybe find his owner, or a new owner for him. Or should i force myself to stop peeking out the window at him and hope he goes home? Could he get our pets sick? why do stray animals always seem to find me?
