I pet sit for a "feral" cat. She was trapped & released & the lady re-released
her at her new house when she moved. I would have to leave the front door open
so she could sneak inside. She now runs up to my car & begs to be picked up.
Yet the woman still calls her "feral", LOL.
So Hemy may very well come around.

Poor Hemy must be very upset; but the fact that she’s not lunging at you when
you tend to her needs, proves that she’s not a true feral! An outdoor
enclosure for your cats and Hemy (separated, and where she could live all the
time) would be great – then you wouldn’t have to worry about her safety and the
birds! But if she has a cleft palate, how is she managing to eat and survive?

Update on my “Dilemma” and numerous “questions”….
The little “feral” cat from my aunt’s house is now safely in a large cage on my
back deck. Phew! Forgotten Felines lent me the cage and advised that should
be her transition place. She’s “mad as heck” and won’t look at me and hisses,
but lets me clean the litter box, give her food and change the water. But this
is only day 2. She seems to be healing from her tail amputation, and her hind
leg wound/tumor (they aren’t sure). My goal is to let her stay in my yard –
not my favorite thing, but can work (birds: beware). I am open to finding her
a home if she turns out to be friendly enough. I will Never take her to a
“shelter” or give her away to anyone I don’t know and can’t check up on. She’s
had it tough enough already.
I call her Hemy (sorta short for Himalayan?). She’s “half” lot of things:
she was already spayed; she is at least half Himalayan; she is half feral and
half friendly; she has a little clef palate; she is blue-eyed and although
looked awful with a damaged tail she is a 9 lb. 6 oz. beauty! If she ever
forgives me for causing her this trauma, we may get to be friends!
I am considering building a larger enclosure for her, and maybe could use it to
give the indoor cats some time outside.
And thank you all so much for your help!
