That's fine as a bed. Shallow bowl of water
Have you any tuna/ham/chicken or a neighbour you can beg cat food off?

Ollivander84 Sun 16-Apr-17 16:00:35

If you're by chance anywhere in Lancashire I can help!

Depends on the individual really - I imagine if its an indoor cat it will be happier hiding/sheltering
I wouldn't give any food unless you manage to track something suitable down, you may find a cat person who can help you out!

I don't see the harm in giving it a bit of dog food, if it's hungry it'll eat it, if it's not it won't. It's only a temporary measure.

I would also maybe ask around you neighbourhood about the cat - Theres any number of reasons it's been dumped in the box, it could be children messing about, or it may have been stolen ? I'm a member of a local lost pets group on Facebook, sadly I'm not in your area, can you check to see if there is something similar in your area and explain your predicament here. If youre not on Facebook, perhaps ask a friend to do it for you - I'm not a great fan of Facebook, but it is very useful for these kind of things.

Explain you have found a cat on Facebook in local 'lost pets ' page not here on mn, is what I was trying to say.

Don't just assume that the owners have dumped it.

Beg borrow or steal a carrier.

Honest she can shred a cardboard box no matter how much tape.

Where are you in Nottinghamshire? I could drop some food in. Am in Liverpool at the minute but will be back later.

I've also got a spare carrier you can borrow.

Toddlerteaplease Sun 16-Apr-17 16:25:43

And a spare litter tray.

Poor cat. Please don't let it run off. It could get run over, caught by a fox or end up savaged by a dog or fighting with another cat.
Stick it in the shed with a bowl of water, a small bowl of tuna or chicken if you can't get hold of cat food.
Ring the rescue centres tomorrow or Tuesday. You could also give it a washing up bowl with soil or sand for toiletting as its an emergency. Hopefully it will use it but I also advise putting newspaper on the floor to speed cleaning up.
Good luck.

Have you got any tuna? My cat goes mental for some tuna, should be in water though, not oil. Cats love cheese although it isn't really very good for them.

I agree with posting on a local Facebook lost pets page. Someone on there might even have a scanner and can scan for a microchip.

Was the cat actually shut in the box? I ask because cats bloody love a box so it might well have got in there by choice.

fenneltea Sun 16-Apr-17 16:30:02

Id offer it food, it's probably being aggressive because it's frightened and just had a traumatic experience.
We have local vets that will take in stray cats and try to locate an owner, perhaps it might be worth ringing round, I'm sure one will be able to help.
I'd put the food in the shed with water a warm bed and a litter tray and shut him in for the night, having rehomed several cats that were living wild,I have to say that they generally don't do well and are much healthier being fed and sheltered.
Cats protection or other charities may be able to help too.

Fluffycloudland77 Sun 16-Apr-17 16:31:06

It might've been stolen and dumped because it's fighting with other cats. They often can't survive on their own.

Dog food won't kill it.

Most cats will eat bits of fresh meat, eg ham, chicken, lamb - all off bones. pehaps not fish - some cats find it not OK. No milk, do leave water.

Try local places eg local facbook groups, neighbourhood groups etc with a photo and are still stuck. If you are sure it is a burmese, Try these people and they can perhaps advise burmesecatassociation.org/contacts/2-helen-hewitt.html

If it is not a burmese, similar rescue groups exist for siamese and oriental that I know of and can post back for you. They all have lost and found posts.

Poor thing sounds terrified. Pop it in the shed with the make shift bed, bowl of water. You have found someone to give you some cat food, so I would wait for that. Also litter tray if some kind. Use sand, newspaper or earth in place if cat litter.

Watch out, she may howl when she's locked in.

Burmese are very intelligent cats and very vocal which can be intimidating.

A shed is fine with some bedding.

Will probably be shot saying thison here but years ago we used to give ours some milk and a small bit of cheese occasionally.

Not ideal food but if she is hungry and it's an emergency it might help settle her down a bit in the shed.

Love Burmese cats they really are gorgeous.

Dipsydora Sun 16-Apr-17 17:01:30

Seriously get it microchip scanned it could be stolen. Dumped in box could mean some nasty person has grabbed it and driven it miles and dumped her. If Burmese they can be a bit of a pain to neighbors they steel etc so could be a reason.
Water food and something to sleep on she will be fine locked in shed. What color etc?
