    Very skittish semi feral, would appreciate any tips!

    Well, now I've also just noticed a bald spot on her lower back, about 3/4-1 inch long, with flaky skin. Not sure if that is stress related or something else. I put some Vetericyn on it, and she was due for her flea prevention so I just applied that as well. Do you think she needs a vet visit...

    Very skittish semi feral, would appreciate any tips!

    So we made the move and are in our new place. She is doing ok. She is staying mostly in the closet, which is where I had her set up during the move and where she seems to feel comfortable. I do have the door open so she can come out at night if she wants, but I'm wondering If I should keep it...

    Very skittish semi feral, would appreciate any tips!

    Hmm, I've put treats in it and she does take them but with the carrier she usually waits to go in until I'm not around. I think she senses it's a trap. 😂 I'll try with her actual food though, maybe that would work. I also work from home and it's definitely made this process easier, although...

    Very skittish semi feral, would appreciate any tips!

    Forgot about this thread for a while and thought I'd post a little update. Honey is still here and has made very slow, but steady progress. She does not let me handle her, and does not like to be pet at all, but she is free roaming around the apartment now and has relaxed A LOT since she first...

    Very skittish semi feral, would appreciate any tips!

    So a few days before I had to leave, she ended up throwing up a worm. We went to the vet that afternoon (getting her in the carrier was traumatic for both of us), and they gave her Revolution and a dewormer injection, and said she should be fine. I watched her closely for a few days, then had...

    Very skittish semi feral, would appreciate any tips!

    I would be gone for probably 3 days. If it were just one I wouldn't even be considering bringing her. I was gone for Thanksgiving for 1 day and she was fine, but this would be longer. I would expect some setback in her progress from this, I understand that. She would be isolated in a private...

    Very skittish semi feral, would appreciate any tips!

    So she's still mostly staying in the bathroom, behind the toilet. I'm wondering if I should try and block that spot off, but so far I haven't. She can still observe me from there, and she knows that I know where she is. I did get some of the churu treats and she is licking it off my fingers...

    Very skittish semi feral, would appreciate any tips!

    That makes sense, I did move all of my things out of the bathroom and only left her toys, so that's all she has in there, but now I removed the toy with feathers also. Last night she seemed a little more relaxed, and she almost ate a little wet food from my hand. She sniffed it and nudged it...

    Very skittish semi feral, would appreciate any tips!

    Thank you everyone for the tips! I have the door open consistently now, she is still mostly staying in the bathroom and she has come out a few times cautiously if it's quiet. I do have the other end of the hallway blocked for now, as there are too many places she could hide away in the main...

    Very skittish semi feral, would appreciate any tips!

    Hi all! My coworker has been feeding a feral/semi feral for a few months and was able to trap her. Unfortunately he is not able to keep her, so I took her. He had already taken her to the vet, and they said she is healthy, and she does seem it. She is spayed and has her shots, and is probably...
