A stray gray tabby has been hanging out in my back patio for the past few months, presumably dining on the birds that were nesting in the rafters. Now the birds are gone, and the cat is visibly starving.
For the last few nights I’ve been feeding it some leftover chicken scraps, though I’ll probably have to buy regular cat food soon. (Or more chicken.) Is there anything else I can do, or anything I should be aware of? I’m not planning to “officially” adopt the cat, and calling Animal Control is right out, since they want to charge $50 just to trap the cat and eventually euthanize it anyway.
