Hey so I found this stray cat outside of my closed warehouse (around 2 am).

Hey so I found this stray cat outside of my closed warehouse (around 2 am). He was lying in the snow shivering like crazy and I brought him into my car and am leaving it running. I can't bring it inside or I'll get in major trouble.

He meows when I pick him up, and he's shivering like crazy but isn't moving at all. Is he gonna die?

I tried calling animal control, but they don't open until 9, and I work a 12 hour shift until 6 in the morning, and after that I drive home and sleep, so letting my car run for 6 hours is out of the question. Should I just let him die or is he gonna be OK for me to release eventually?

    >calling animal control
    Please don't do this for any injured/sick animals, they will literally just euthanize them.

    Update, I called one of my coworkers who apparently lived with a veterinarian. Vet gave the cat a 10 percent chance to live and it fricking did. His name is Lucky.

        Yes. I have too many cats at home to keep him, so it's for the best. I really do wanna see the cat though.

      Place cat's body, but not head in plastic bag, submerge in warm, but not hot water, being careful to not get cat wet.

      This is the fastest way to increase body temp.

    Start rubbing her, heat transfer through skin contact is the most effective

    Your animal control isnt 24/7? Christ. Try an overnight vet or animal shelter?

    >stray cat outside
    not a stray, it has an owner
    it's normal for cats to have an owner and barely be home. you know how pets usually are, living away from their owner 🙂

      I think he means he isn't a man and his wife or parents would rather the animal die than be inconvenienced for a short period of time.

        Buy your own house and you can bring all the diseased dying vermin animals you want inside 🙂

          I do own my own home and I've saved 3 different cats from the cold.

          I'm not a useless compassionateless Black person like you.

        It's more like I'd get fired for letting an animal puke or shit on the floor of this particular warehouse. Besides, it's cold as frick inside of the warehouse, so it was honestly a better choice to let him warm up on a heated seat in a running car.

        >animal control doesn't open until 9
        Your animal control isnt 24/7? Christ. Try an overnight vet or animal shelter?

        The local animal control only has one officer on staff overnight, and he told me he is only dispatched in a case that poses threat to human life (rabid dogs, etc.), and the 24/7 vet that I called told me I would need to assume financial responsibility for the rehabilitation of this cat, which I can't afford. I was in a fricked situation, and I got lucky that my coworker lived with a veterinarian who was willing to take him free of charge.

      No blankets or anything. I work as a security guard at a warehouse, the best I can do are paper towels.

        Should mention that I have the heater and seat warmers running at full. It's been around 4 and a half hours now and he's still meowing when I pick him up, he's just not moving.

    Also he's been in my car for an hour now, but I don't have the gas to keep him in there.
