Feral kitty progress
I don't think I'll be calling her "feral kitty" much longer, more like "my other cat". I've been gradually working up to this point for weeks. She's been coming in tentatively but just on the threshold to be petted and then yesterday and last night came in a little further, wrapping around my legs wanting some attention. The inside door is always open though so she can see the screen door and know she's not trapped. She's probably realizing it isn't so bad to come out of the rain?
This morning I experimented and put the dry food down - she walked over and ate some! This afternoon, just awhile ago, I tried it again with her canned food; and she ate the whole thing. Maybe I won't have to worry about feeding her outside in the wind and snow this winter after all, that was my goal anyway.
