Service Idea (cats in the neighborhood)

I have an idea for something I can document as a service, with confirmation from ms fleming. Even before the summer break, I had been feeding some stray cats around the streets. there’s a couple that always appears on our wall in the morning which I feed. and although I have not fed them, I know that there are many more cats nearby. Near my house, there has been a construction site of the new Egyptian embassy, and there is a trio of cats which I assume have been getting scraps from the construction workers. I don’t know names or how frequent, but I also know of another stranger who also feeds that trio. I think my main steps though, is finding which areas they are frequent in, and possibly naming them for convenience


12/1 – Continuation

Further expanding on this cat idea, I may not be able to keep going out and feed these many cats, likely due to it either being too much of a trip, but I also believe that many of these cats are already fed, as they have a very well-groomed and clean coat. However, one plan which I think may have more significance is helping a particular cat who I’ve called Bubzy.

As you can see he does look a bit banged up. He appears to have 2 major issues, one being his swollen face and how very bent his ears appear. Regarding the swelling, I found it could either be a tumor or abscess, which is similar to a large pimple (but can’t just be popped). Another possibility which I think is most likely is he either has a tooth abscess or tumor, I believe this because I see that his teeth are not in the best condition, but he also drools a lot which could be the effect of this tooth abscess. Regarding the bent ears, there’s also a variety of possibilities. The 2 I think is either he gets into a lot of catfights and gets his ears scratched, or he either has fleas or mites causing him to scratch. I think the ear problem is just as important as the abscess. The picture does not highlight it well, but he gets very very bloody ears. sometimes they look very fresh, and even that the skin itself is peeling off.

I did attempt to bring him to the vet during wellness day, but he proved tough to catch, I almost got him into the cage, but right as I was about to close the lid he suddenly jumped quickly and got out. although I have ideas on what ailment he has, I can’t do much to treat it. Which is why I want to bring him to the vet. Looking on the internet it seems that even just a bit of anti biotics may help him. The only problem I worry is that we bring him there, and they say it would be better to put him down, which would break my hear
