    Rescued wildy, seems to going backwards.

    Patience is paying off. Lots of quite praise, allowing him to have his safe space, led to a little hand feeding, and a cautious on finger head stroke. Then all of a sudden tonight he pushed right in to my hand for a full on smooch and half rolled over letting me give him a gentle belly rub and...

    Rescued wildy, seems to going backwards.

    As suggested I tried a toy...he swiped at it very aggressively so I droped that idea for now. I went in to top up his food and he has moved from his tiny hiding place and has taken up residence on top of his cage. I've had a chat to him and put his food up there with him and left him alone...

    Rescued wildy, seems to going backwards.

    We rescued a Tom cat that had been living under a local farmhouse a couple of weeks ago. We know it's been caught before, neutered and released, and that it's been under the house for about a year. Had him checked and scanned for microchip.

    Goodnight Eric, my little lion man

    Thank you. He loved sitting on my shoulders. Was always climbing up to see what I was doing. He was a beaten up smelly cat when we took him in. He was full of scratches, had fur missing a his ears were torn from being roughed up by other toms. I spent two weeks on the floor with him trying to...

    New feral, what now

    We received a new feral cat a few days ago. He had been living under a farmhouse for quite a while. We have him in a large dog crate and he seems comfortable. On day 2 I was able to stroke him and while he doesn't seem to mind me stroking his head, ears, paws, he still seems to be frightened and...
