You don’t adopt a stray cat, rather a stray cat adopts
you. Although this adage has a bit of truth, being a responsible
pet owner requires you to take care of a few things to ensure the
health and well-being of your adopted cat. 1.Find a stray cat.
Perhaps there is a stray cat nosing around in your backyard with
no collar or tags. 2.Get a pet carrier. Place the carrier outside,
where the stray cat can smell and explore the carrier. 3.Establish
trust with the cat by offering food and water. The best way to get
a cat or any pet to not be afraid of a pet carrier is to offer food
and water to the stray inside the carrier with the door unlatched.
This lets the stray become familiar with the carrier and your scent.
This may take several repetitions to establish trust. 4.Name your
cat. Go get a collar and tag with the cat’s new name. Congratulations!
You’ve adopted a stray cat.
