This cat has been outside, he fights with other cats you can hear at night time. My brother has been feeding it (which my cat food). But now he is pushing it, trying to bring the cat inside. It has an eye infection, and I can guarentee that he has mites (near his ears the fur is missing). My cats pick up every little things, and they get sick 10x worse. I told him he can pay the $1,000 in vet bills for my cats. If he is going to rescue this cat he can pay to bring it to the vets and not be inside. He wont pay anything just like my sister towards the cat, and I already pay enough for food feeding my sisters cat as it is.

I can understand wanting to help a stray but feeding it should be the end of it, and if he does want to bring it inside he needs to bring it to the vets first and get the cat well before bringing it inside. Also if the cat fights with other cats, whose to say it won't fight with yours? It may just be the cat feels terrible right now and is "lashing" out, though who knows.

I agree completely, he wont pay a cent for the animal just like his other cat. So I guarentee it my parents or me will pay for it. Im sure he means well, but he would be putting all the animals at risk. Even Marco can get ear mites, and fleas which would be hardier tpo get rid of. But the cats are going nuts in the house, my three are scared out of their tree.

It sounds like your brother is a very soft-hearted person and I personally know how difficult it is when there are stray animals around our homes that are hungry and in need of care. Really, there are only two humane choices to make in these kinds of situations. You can either decide to bring the animal into your family (and have the added expenses of having another pet) or you can take the animal to the shelter so that they will get the proper care that they need and they will be able to find a good forever home as well. The decision that is made really depends on the finances of the family that the stray animal is trying to adopt.

If it is your house then it is your say on if the cat allowed to be brought into the house or not. If it has war mites your cats will catch it. Your cats can catch feline leukemia just from drinking from the same water dish if the stray has it. Feeding animals and the vet care can be very costly.

My aunty will never let us bring street cats inside house. You should not let the cat get inside if you think this cat has mites. The street cat may fight your sister's cat and will be so noisy in house.

Those are the things you will need to put a stop to in order to have some respect around the house. now that makes no scense at all to bring a sick cat around other cats andget them sick. i will be glad when you are moved out of there.
