If you have a relationship with your regular vet they will also cut you a deal on very basic vet care for a stray. I took my stray in for shots for a fraction of the usual fee, she was also believed to have been spayed due to a scar found during exam. Won't hurt to ask, typical cost of a physical exam and round of vaccines her is around $100, I only paid actual cost of the vaccines which was $20.3x75 gallons|2x55 gallons|2x50 gallons|3x40 gallons|1x29 gallon|1x10 gallon

Thanks for all the suggestions guys! Sorry been a little busy these days...
I actually picked him up he was like "what are you doing" and then put him by a food bowl, he took a quick peek around and then ran back outside. I tried it again the next day but closed the door behind him, he was crying like I just kidnapped him from his mother or something. I let him back out.
I feel like he won't be happy as a housecat. I'll just make him a dog house thing like you guys suggested. Hopefully he will make it through the winter and he will still visit.I watch fish. Really. I just sit and stare.

When the winter hits, he may have a change of heart...even a stubborn cat will think twice about leaving a warm house to run out into -20 (depending on where you are).
You might want to try again once there's snow on the ground.
Where ever you put the shelter you make for him, make sure its somewhere the entrance won't get snowed over.
Great that you are caring for him, too bad that you have to...20gal long planted community
