Cats/Stray Cat Dying

Question
I found a stray cat he is really thin , to the point that I can feel his bones. I want to know what should I do with him . I do not want to abandon him, so i decided to feed him and take care of him. He eats a little bit, but not  that much. I do not have money to take him to a vet. I want to know if there is a home remedy that i could make to give it to him. HELP.

Answer
Hi
All you can do if you cannot afford to take him to the vets is to either give him to a animal shelter (no kill) who will be able to care for him medically if they can and find him a good home or just continue to give him lots of TLC , food and comfort. You could treat him for fleas and worms in case this is what is causing his thinness.

However being a stray he may have picked up all sorts of illness which may only be able to be cured with proper medication from the vets.

I have a web site which has lots of information about how to take care of your cat, you may find it helpful in looking after your cat.
