A little more info. She's in the trap, where the FF people said she should stay until morning which it is. She had a problem with her tail, so part of that had to be amputated. They said it went really well and she didn't bleed much which is good. They advised the bandage would just come off

Hi Bonnie, I would take her to your place, feed her right away so she knows that is your intention. Also make sure she know your aunt's cat is there with you, she is and has been aware of that cat while she was at your aunts and it will give her some familiarity and may help keep her

When I re-locate ferals I set them up in a big dog crate in the are I will be releasing them in for 2 weeks minimum. That way the know where they are going to be fed. Make sure you feed them where the crate was. They have always stayed around once freed. Beth  Don't Litter, Fix Your Critter!
