The Hubby and I have always loved Hobo, but he's never allowed us to touch him. Even when he had a handful of burrs stuck in his back fur, he refused any human assistance. He never slept in the cat shelters that we made, either. He would accept only food and water. But I trapped him and got him neutered; he was just about the easiest cat to catch, other than Patty O'Malley who walked into the trap in 30 seconds!
Having offered the guy my services as trapper, I have provided my contact information and that of low cost spay/neuter clinic All About Animals Shelter (website: http://www.allaboutanimalsrescue.org/). He didn't know how he was going to get all of the cats 'fixed', but now he has a way, and of course I'll assist in whatever way is comfortable for him.
In the end, it was nice to commune with my friend Hobo, and knowing that he's being cared for is wonderful! I told him that he can venture down the alley back to our house at any time.
