I need help from anyone who knows about cats. I know nothing but there is a sweet cat in my life who needs help. Ever since I moved into my apartment more than two years ago, a tiny black and white stray cat has been lurking. He is very skittish and has never let me get too close but I think he trusts me. We feed him everyday and he likes to meet me at the car when I get home from work and walk me to my door. My ex named him Steve and it seems to have stuck :) All the neighbors call him that now, too. I have been worrying lately about what will happen to him when I get married and move away. I think he was abused, he has one ear that looks like some kid hacked off the tip with a pair of scissors. He is just so sweet and I know he loves us, he just has a fear of commitment.
Anyway, I noticed today that he has a nasty infection in an eye. It is a red thing that is sort of growing over the eye and now covers almost half of it. And the eye is sort of squinting shut. Should I try to capture him and take him to a vet? He was extra attentive to me today like he was crying out for help. Help Steve-O! What to do?
