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?

Good luck!

Dear All

 

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!

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.

I like the outdoor enclosure idea best!  I am owrking on plans for my pride.  
Thinking about roofing half of it so they could be out when I am gone during 
the day.  Then, if it rained or the sun was very hot, they could find shelter.  
Also, I could get a solar pump and put in a fountain in a small pool for them.  
Harley would especially love this!  He loves water and comes in the shower with 
me.  He has also watched me and learned how to flush the toilet so he can watch 
the water spin around.

Feral is a badge of honor to some of us.  These cats are the best and  
the brightest.  They have survived when all the odds were against  
them.  My little guys are ferals and they have lived with me, travel  
with me, and owned me for over three yearssince they were 8 weeks  
old and came out of the pine thicket.  One feral, the first to own me,  
lived in our homes for 16 years.  He was born feral and died feral.   
It is almost a very special breed of cat although not a rare one.

 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!

I used a 12x6x6 foot dog kennel with a topper attached to a bathroom  
window by ductwork and a pet door.   Others have great outdoor areas  
available but this is fairly quick and, ifthe door is secured with a  
lock, pretty secure.

I like the outdoor enclosure idea best!  I am owrking on plans for  
my pride.  Thinking about roofing half of it so they could be out  
when I am gone during the day.  Then, if it rained or the sun was  
very hot, they could find shelter.  Also, I could get a solar pump  
and put in a fountain in a small pool for them.  Harley would  
especially love this!  He loves water and comes in the shower with  
me.  He has also watched me and learned how to flush the toilet so  
he can watch the water spin around.

Feral is a badge of honor to some of us.  These cats are the best  
and the brightest.  They have survived when all the odds were  
against them.  My little guys are ferals and they have lived with  
me, travel with me, and owned me for over three yearssince they  
were 8 weeks old and came out of the pine thicket.  One feral, the  
first to own me, lived in our homes for 16 years.  He was born feral  
and died feral.  It is almost a very special breed of cat although  
not a rare one.

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?

Good luck!
