How to find a stray cat?
I really want a cat, and I want to rescue one outside that's dying, instead of from a shelter where they are cared for because my local shelter is a no kill shelter. Where I live does not have many stray cats, how can I find one?
Please I love cats and I REALLY want one.
I can't put out cat food, I'm a teen and my mom won't let me
They said we can get a cat if I get one myself either pay the adoption fee by myself which is like $150 or get a stray, they just don't want me leaving out food in case a raccoon or squirrel eats it instead of a cat
I have been saving for years, I do have $150 but there's a possibility that a stray cat could be spayed or neutered for a capture, fix, release thing, they do that where I live

Leave out a bowl of food, preferably cat food but if you don't have any then maybe meat. If you can't, just look outside and see if you can spot any stray cats.

It is almost impossible to catch a feral (stray) cat. and you wouldn't want one - they are wild and are not human friendly. Leaving food out is a good way to get critters other than cats. If you really want a cat check with the rescue and see if they have a special event coming up.

Miss Rose, you REALLY need to ask your mom and dad FIRST. If they won't let you put out a can of food. Do you really think they'll let you have a cat?

They DO get killed at shelters. Even no kill shelters do kill a small portion of the animals... Or the animals get rotated out to a kill shelter where they will get killed.
You CAN'T have a cat if you are a teen anyways. Thats your parent's choice to get a cat or not
A roaming cat COULD belong to someone else... If ferals and strays arent common in your area, then there is a good chance that a roaming cat IS someones lost or escaped pet.
Even if you could find an unclaimed stray.. They need shots, dewormed and fixed... Which will cost more than $150. The shelter cats will come with all of that done. Save your allowance.
