    Personally I've always had pretty darn good cats. The only ones that haven't been good started out good and then went crazy as a result of ********* with airsoft or bb guns.

    Okay, my fiance is a vet. The following is not medical advice, but a recommendation that you seek some professional contact with a vet and soon. Under a spoiler cut
    Spoiler

    She's had plenty of people try to adopt feral cats only to get shafted, both financially and emotionally. They want to do the right thing and help an animal only to discover that it didn't get it's proper vaccinations, and end up paying a hefty vet bill when the animal comes down with something like parvo or distemper or worse.

    My immediate advice, if you haven't already, is take the animal to vet as soon as you reasonably can. A checkup and vaccination round now can cost you signifigantly less than if you discover the animal has a health problem later.
    Especially when it comes to teeth.
    Shop around if you don't like the price of the vacs, or check into local municipal programs, or check with local shelters, as there are usually cheaper options than the vet.

    Beyond that, I'm going to recommend looking into a product called feel-away. It's a feline pheromone, it plugs in like an air freshener, you won't smell it, but it basically well help set the kitty at ease in your home. It tends to work on feral cats extremely well. Rescue houses and foster homes typically use it as well.

    Lastly, microchip or collar/tag your new friend. If the kitty was feral before, it may try to escape some time soon again, without an identification chip or tag that could end poorly.

    Yes, that's the stuff.
    See, that is exactly why I was recommending visiting a vet.

    That'd be normal for this time of year. Cats ingest a lot of the hair that they're shedding as their summer/winter coat is exchanged for the winter/summer coat.

    I think hairball treatments are available otc. I should probably look into that before spot starts hacking away.

    Well mom has changed her mind since kitty nipped her and she found him chewing cords when he was in play mode.

    Nice of her to do so right as winter is coming in and the cat shelters are full...

    Apparently she is now willing to let him back in. However she balks at the 200+ dollar cost for shots, checkup, and neutering.

    200-300 is pretty reasonable for those things. Shop around, you can probably find cheaper. I know a clinic in town here that does all that for 120. Municipal programs and shelters usually run shots + neuter for 150, with a microchip either free or another 30 bucks on top.
    Pssst-The chip is way better than the tattoo.

    He almost certainly has roundworms, which may also cause hacking.

    Ask the vet to give him de-worming stuff, because if you try to do it yourself blood will flow. And he may never forgive you. It is even better if the vet sedates him (which may be needed for the checkup anyway).
