Someone dropped off a cat that wandered into our yard and is now trying to adopt us. A consideration is what to do with him when we eventually travel in our 19'. Anyone doing that in Escape land? If so, do you use a litter box? David and Cathy
Lots of people travel with cats in molded trailers. Probably the most traveled cat that I know is Jim's and Carol's cat Jerry. He is typically seen around the campground in a cat stroller! He wears a harness and doesn't seem to mind in the least being on a lead. BUT, they got Jerry when he was six weeks old and has traveled with them since that time.
The only pets I have are dust bunnies....

If you chose to let the cat adopt you, there are a couple of considerations;
1. If the cat is feral, but opportunistically scoring free meals from you, you will probably never be able to domesticate it...he will just hang around for meals.
2. If the cat decides its an indoor cat, have it tested for feline AIDS and feline leukemia before you let him join your household.
3. If you do decide to travel with him, train him early in a harness. The cat will have to be harnessed and restrained while you are camping or he'll become some forest critter's dinner.
4. Regardless of how it works out, PLEASE have the cat neutered...no sense starting a whole new batch of kittens. There are probably discount spay/neuter services in your area.
p.s.: Do we know if the member from Vietnam is a real person, or a spambot?
There are 10 kinds of people in the world, those who understand binary, and those who don't.
