Any cat that needs to be fed either lives in town or is not worth having. LOL!!!!

I brought home a calico years ago in a feed sack.
They come and they go.
Think we are down to 5 or 6 this year.
They get fed about once a week to get them to stay around.
Bet we have had over 50 of them over the years and could not get within 10 feet of most of them.

Keep them around long enough and they become "attached" to you.

Look to your local humane society for the fixing. Ours has a low cost program for about $20 per cat I think. It is not much compared to vet cost.

Two or three of our dogs, (Tailer, Charlie, Sugar) play chase and sometime "clip" my from behind and I go down.

No big deal until they all start thinking DOG PILE!

Nice cats, best rodent control around, we have 3 barn cats, 3 shop cats and 3 in the house! Speaking of spay/neuter check to see if you have an organization around you called kinder kuts (I think that's how you spell it) it's a non-profit I think that fixes outdoor or farm cats for about $30 bucks a cat. Thats who did all of ours, can't beat that price.

Cat lover here, have two of them in the house—also allowed to roam outside. We’ve always had cats in the family.

The orange tabby was recently abandoned by tenants who moved out of their apartment and left him alone in the empty place. I replied to an online ad because our striped tabby was lonely after losing her longtime friend. She wanted another cat.

What an ordeal! I went to the apt complex with our cat carrier, found Elbe in a live trap the maintenance people had lured him into. Of course he bolted when I tried to transfer him—found a hole he knew about, ran behind a wall in the maintenance shop. Stayed there for a week. No intention of coming out. Ever.

I told the maintenance people to keep me posted, drove the 45 minutes back home. Finally got the call that Elbe (LB—for “Left Behind” was back in the live trap. This was a week later. I got there as quickly as possible, told the guys I’d just take the trap with the cat inside and return the trap asap.

Once home, our striped tabby Tabitha was overjoyed to see a new whiskered friend. Elbe was less than pleased about being knocked around, kidnapped and taken someplace unfamiliar. But he was young, he’d get over it. For a time he hid in the basement, but actually came out when I called him. Fast-fwd to today: Elbe and Tabitha chase each other around, play tag, ambush each other, and generally accept each other as friends.

He is ok with those of us in the family, but terrified if a visitor comes. He runs and hides. Was probably traumatized by his experience with the previous owners and being unceremoniously relocated. He likes it here.

For the cat fees: $200+ is too much. We called around, asked first at the local SPCA about getting our male cat Elbe fixed. Explained that he was a rescue. Someone there gave me a contact number for a place that did nothing but spaying and neutering and whatever shots were needed. Made an appt. and Elbe was in and out in one day. $55 for neutering and rabies shot. There may be a similar clinic in your area.
