So this is mostly an outdoor cat?

He doesn't like to be handled at all?

When was the last time he saw the vet?

So the feces seems to be stuck in the fur on his butt?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I can pick him up, but as soon as I
try to clean him he runs away. I have not been able to take him to
the vet for several years. As soon as he sees the pet carrier, he goes
ballistic. He is 14 yrs. old and I can't put him through that stress.

So is he still able to defecate?

What is your zip code?
