I would say, check with your local Petsmart of Petco and ask the rescues if 
they have room for an abandoned, already spayed cat.  If none of their fosters 
have room, perhaps they have a foster your own pet (FYOP) program, and you can 
find her a forever home.  The rescue group I work with has FYOP, and can 
sometimes even provide a large kennel/cage to keep the cat separate from your 
own clowder.

Hope this helps.

  Subject: [Felvtalk] Please Share Thoughts on TNR Dilemma

  Wish I would have thought to ask this yesterday!  Now I'm literally an hour 
away from needing to decide.

  The problem is that my aunt (who's tame housecat I took) also had a "feral" 
living in her large yard.  The cat showed up about 2 years ago, and for the 
past year I believe the cat has pretty much been a resident there (her only 
source of food?).

  Yesterday I trapped her and took her to Forgotten Felines, the local and 
excellent TNR organization.  Guess what?  She had already been spayed.  That 
means some (fill in the blank nasty term) 'person' had just abandoned her!

  So here's the dilemma:  if I release her in my yard, she's in a strange 
place.  The only thing holding her near will be my good heart.  If I take her 
back to my aunt's house (which is to go on the market soon) god knows what will 
happen, where she will find food, and the next 'trapper' may not have as good a 
motivation as I do.

  I see it as 50/50 for this poor cat.

  But what would YOU do?

  Thanks for your thoughts.
