As you are all used to by now - another long story: A pretty small cat showed up in my neighborhood recently and my neighbor has been feeding it and trying to befriend it, in the hopes of trapping it and taking it a no kill shelter. As it turns out, we also have now found a kitten that is sort of hanging around the small cat. We are guessing that the kitten is the small cat's baby, and perhaps is totally feral. The little one will run away when my neighbor gets anywhere near it. The small cat will sniff my neighbor's hand, but is still somewhat leery. Even though my neighbor made a little home with a cardboard box/blankets/etc., and both the small cat and the kitten have been in it at least a couple of times, it is apparent they have another spot or two - we believe in her backyard - that they are also hiding out in, as we don't see them daily. The small cat, as far as we can tell, is not nursing the kitten at this time. So, I am not sure how much the kitten is getting to eat. Although, once my neighbor figured out one or both of them has a hiding spot in the backyard, she puts food in that area as well as food by their little cardboard home. There's more to the story, but I'll stop there for now. The current question is how to get the kitten to stop running away. My neighbor wants to have the chance to catch them both - not to leave one or the other behind - and personally, I agree. Do we just have to wait and be patient and diligent with the food/water in the hopes the kitten will start to feel more secure?? Thanks for any advice you can offer!!
