Oh she is not feral at all, she is simply a sweet kitty whose previous owners failed her. Sounds like she would be a great inside only kitty :) We thought SuzieQ was feral until she started letting us pet her and when Charlie (the other backyard feral) went missing about three weeks ago, we brought SuzieQ inside and she is quite happy to be living the good life in our guest bedroom. She will soon be let out into the main part of the house to meet the rest of our Nuisance. We have taken our "goodwill ambassador" kitties in to meet her already and they have all gotten along really well. By following my Cat Intro 101 instructions (I can email for anyone that wants a copy) you can introduce MANY kitties into your existing kitty/dog household. Thanks for saving Hemy.

Today when I fed Hemy (she’s in a cage on my back covered deck) she ate while I was there. I spoke to her and reached a finger through the cage to touch her head. No problem. Then, when I came back to clean her litter box, I took a chance and placed my hand on the floor of the cage and remained still. She moved closer, then nudged my hand. I stroked her cheek and she moved her head around in obvious pleasure. I petted her a few moments and she purred. This is a “feral” cat who has, after tail amputation and being moved from her familiar surroundings, been in a cage on my back deck for only Five Days! I’d say she is more afraid and cautious than feral, wouldn’t you? I’m keeping her in the cage for now, and will go slowly so she doesn’t feel pressured. But what a little sweetheart. It pains me to think of how horribly humans have been to her, yet she is willing to forgive and perhaps trust again. Bless her! ~Bonnie _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
