It would be safer for him and any other kitties around if you could keep him inside full time. Some of mine were outside full time before I rescued them. They are happy to be inside and no having to dodge cars and predators. -Original Message- From: felvtalk-boun...@felineleukemia.org

Can't be sure where the calici came from. Can't you bring him inside and put him in a kennel and cover with a towel? He obviously needs help and is asking you to help him. Or put him in a car or garage. I have a friend who takes in kitties who need help and puts them in a carrier with towel over.
