We have had some most excellent cat experts among our regularas, though some, like Jcat I haven't heard from for some time. Any expert ou there ?
I think it could be more upsetting for the kitten to be given back again at this stage, but it depends on the situation you're in. Why did the other big cat decide to attack ? They don't usually do this, especially to a baby kitten ; how are the other cats in the complex ? possibly friendly or at least neutral ? Is it practical to protect him in your home at least till he gets bigger and stronger ? My present cat is slightly disabled and vulnerable, so I keep her indoors at all times unless on a lead and with me, and though this is extra work, it works and she has not been attacked by some of the horibly aggressive cats next door.
Was there someone intelligent and knwoleadgeable at the SPCA you could call and ask for advice ?
