We've had the carrier outside on the porch , Otis would go in it at night to sleep. This was a period of about 3 weeks , until Otis felt comfortable enough not to run when we go outside . Last night hubby shut the door to the carrier with Otis in it and brought him inside.
The carrier has an old flannel shirt in it , also a thick towel. We've kept the food bowl and water bowl near the carrier.

he is doing fine. I suggested to hubby to let him outside but hubby is afraid we wouldn't be able to catch him again in time for the vet appointment on Monday afternoon. There is food , water and litterbox for Otis. Hopefully he will get used to using the box and not spray in the room, I don't think he did but you never know.

That's great, good luck with him. I have an outside kitty too but my cat sits in the window and hisses at her so I don't think they would get along. I thought about taking her to the vet for a check-up but I don't think she would handle the carrier.

very cool, elsie. i hope otis adopts you as his new servant.

we take care of 3 feral (fixed) cats, morris, sylvester 1, and sylvester 2.
dw can pet them. in fact, they rub up against her so hard that she has to steady her stance. i can only get close before they swat, with very powerful, closed paws.

last week when it was very cold out, dw got morris to come into our kitchen and eat. we were afraid to close the door because he was so skitterish that if he felt trapped inside, he might go berserk.

the carrier is a good idea. we might have to try that. thanks.
