Started feeding a stray 6 months ago. He is now losing weight and I noticed a little hair loss around back legs. What could be wrong ? Could be hard to get to a vet....don't know what to do.

Ring your local spca or vet and see if you can borrow a humane trap. Then get the cat to the vet. My thoughts are general bad health due to worms/ringworm/etc, and maybe a health problem as well. Some vets won't charge when its a stray, or the spca will take over from you.

However, if you want to tame the cat and adopt it fully, then you will need to catch it anyway.

Good luck to you and your stray

Hi, I agree with Greypaw. It could also be fleas adding to the problem. Good luck.
