Hi! At the very end of May, we found a tiny kitten at the side of a country road. No buildings around, no other cats to be seen. After some stalking (he was very hissy and skittish) we caught him and brought him home. We weren't planning on keeping him - we have a 16 year old dog, guinea pigs and fish, so not really set up for a cat! He still had blue eyes and we think he was around 5 weeks old (weighed 611g). Long story short, he's still here! He's called Alan, had his kitten jabs and finally last Wednesday was chipped and snipped. We're going to let him outside tomorrow. He is desperate to get out! At times he can be incredibly affectionate. He plays well, eats and drinks well. He is a bit of a biter when he tries to wrestle your arm/hand/leg/foot, but we try to ignore and/or make a noise to disrupt him or put him off. He no longer plays with his claws out, which is good! He does chase our old dog, which we find upsetting as the dog doesn't know how to react and has always avoided cats. We are hoping being outside will curb this - what do you think? Also, I have read about supervised outdoor time initially. However, he is quite big, long and lean. We will not be surprised if he is straight up and over the wall - if he is (was!) feral, is this side likely to come out when he's 'free'? We can't even consider keeping him indoor only, it would be completely unfair on him. He will always have a home here, food and warmth, but I am stealing myself for the fact he just might not come back..! Any experience/advice?
