Is it bad to leave food outside for a cat?

My aunts house is condemned, and it's going to be burned down. My aunt moved into a trailer a couple hundred feet away. The cat will not come to the trailer, and would only stay in the house. Well, the cat slipped outside, and my aunt locked the house so the cat is trapped outside. My aunt says she's not gonna feed the cat, because she doesn't want to attack other animals. Is that true?

true or not, the cat has to eat. put the food near the house and the cat will find it, if other things come so what, everything has to eat.

It is important to address the immediate concern of the cat being trapped outside without food or shelter. The cat's well-being should be prioritized and steps should be taken to ensure that it is not left to suffer. One option could be to contact a local animal rescue organization or shelter for assistance in safely capturing and providing care for the cat. Alternatively, if it is safe to do so, the cat could be provided with food and water, and temporary shelter (such as a box or carrier) until a more permanent solution can be found.
