A. He might be in pain but more importantly every day counts with a prolapse. if the intestinal tissue is black or brown - it's a bad sign, there is a high chance of death of the tissue and as it is a vital organ it might mean that he will need surgery in order to repair it. these surgeries are not always successful depending on the severity of the condition.
I strongly advise contacting an emergency center, explaining this is a feral, they might tell you that you can bring it right away and might be able to pint you to a charity that will pay for the treatment as well.
