Hi all just joined here but not being a current pet owner I skipped the new comers section. Just after a bit of advice really. There's this cat that's been walking around our garden the past week and a half. Not sure if its stray/disowned/ferel but it has a raw bit in the middle of its tail, and the end is kinked. We've been leaving food out because we feel ever so sorry for it, and we've watched it wallop it down. I managed to get a photo of it. Its very timid and I think it might be deaf or hard of hearing because it doesn't react to any kind of noises we make. I was sat in the garden tonight and it gingerly walked over to me but then ran past as it got closer like as if it wanted to see how close it could get before being frightened. A few times I've got up to walk into the kitchen and it follows me, as soon as I stop it runs away a little bit before following me again. We are going to have a walk around locally to see if it belongs to anybody. If it does I want the owner to sort its tail out, if nobody claims it's theirs I think we have to call the RSPCA. I hope I've uploaded the photo correctly, if so what do you think? The top photo shows how raw this injury is and the bottom one shows the whole tail. The other half has already said she'd want to keep it if it's nobody's cat.
