I feed all stray and feral cats a steady diet of .22s. Luckily they always eat just one and never want nor need seconds. (It's perfectly legal too. Shoot to maim is animal cruelty, but shoot to kill is a perfectly legal way to humanely euthanize any disease-infested, native wildlife destroying, invasive species vermin like stray and feral cats.)
When we have a stray come by our house, we cut up lunch meat (ham, turkey, chicken, or what ever we have) and leave it outside by the edge of our lawn.( Our driveway goes through our lawn) Just make sure that the meat doesn't have any flavorings with it
Feeding a stray may sound like a wonderful gesture but consider this: any "wild" animal that gets fed will continue to stick around. If you aren't prepared to take care of this cat then it's best to let them be or better yet find out if any animal shelters will take more cats in your area. In this economy a lot of people have let go of their pets and most shelters are packed with cats which is why I say ask if they will take more because right now all the shelters in my area won't accept any more cats.
Strays have usually gotten adept at hunting for their own food, but when they find a free meal they'll want to stick around. I love cats and dogs but I won't feed a stray.
feed it tuna until you get some catfood we have two or three strays that we feed every morning and if you feed them for a while and slowly begin to pet them they can become very friendly buut dont feed it can food its way to expensive just buy a big bag of dry cat food its a little more expensive than a box of can food but it lasts much longer
Tuna is always the best choice and a tasty treat .. at least for the meantime. Please Please Please .. either adopt it, find it a home..or bring it to your local pet/cat shelter. It deserves better than THIS. Don't just leave it out there.
You dont have to worry about it carrying diseases, or fleas, because give it a warm bath with flea shampoo and put a flea collar on, and its ok.You can feed a cat pretty much any kind of meat, because its protein and they are predators. Cats like tuna, chicken, bacon, roast beef, and no matter what kind of cat, where it is, or how old it is, It will LOVE beef jerky. it will drink milk, but not too much. And give it water.
Please, whatever you do, don't leave the poor thing out there alone. Take it to a shelter, give it shots, take it to a friend, or keep it..just don't leave it there to die.
