    Take it in and drop it off. the cat will likely be put down since its sick and that's better then you stealing it or it starving to death

    Yes. If you don't want to keep him and try to bring him back to good health, then take him to the shelter where they can end his suffering.

    Take the cat to the vets or shelter. We found a kitten on the side of the road once who was malnourished and was covered in fleas (probably abandoned and left to die). We took it to the vets and they took her no questions asked and we called up the next day to see how she was. She was doing well and had to be put on a drip. They re homed her and have had no contact since (this was two years ago).

    Hope this helps! :)

    Yes, generally. They will scan the cat for a microchip, match the cat against any 'lost cat' information they have, and then after the stray hold is up (generally 3-5 days) they will either offer him for adoption, or euthanize, depending on how full they are, what is wrong, etc. A shelter that is full can refuse to take a cat, but they can advise you on where to take him. The Animal Control in your area cannot refuse an animal that is brought in, as they are under contract with your county to take in strays, owner surrenders, etc. but they are also the ones that are quickest to euthanize due to lack of space.

    It is better if you nurse him back to health.

    ASPCA is your best bet.

    Very considerate to assume the cat's gender.
