    Stray Cats - I feel horrible

    My neighbor down the road feeds 2 stray cats. I just took food out there for them and they broke my heart. On of them is orange and fuzzy. He belonged to someone up the road and she threw him out because he was sick. He is as sweet as can be. He's so skinny you can feel every bone in his little body. He's all matted, his eyes are gooped up. The second one is in the same condition except he/she is sneezing and has a runny nose. If I had the funds I'd take them in and get them back to health and find them homes. But I don't. I'm feeling useless and heartbroken because of these poor babies and I don't know what to do. Any suggestions?

    Can you contact a shelter? Is there an ASPCA near you, or at least one you can contact? Even though they are technically "owned", they could go poof.....

    Poor babies. I will say a prayer for them.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    Some vets will check out a stray dog or cat for free, might have one near you? If not then the SPCA is the place I would take them-you don't have to tell them they are owned, just say they've been hanging around your place. they might be full of worms and a good deworming would set them straight again.

    Do contact local shelters or veterinarians, and see what they say. You don't need to say one used to be owned, just say they are strays - she threw him out, he's not hers any more. If you could pick up a flea collar or two to slip on them, do they allow touching?

    Thanks for all the tips. We have a really awesome shelter and an SPCA I can talk to and see what they can do.

    Karen, yes they are really friendly. Both were loving all over me when I went out there today.

    I just have to do something because I can't stand for those poor babies to suffer. They are sweet cats and would be beautiful when they are nursed back to health. I'll keep everyone updated

    It is good they are friendly - that will make them easier to capture, and surer to find good homes!
