Caring for a feral cat it is not an easy task, lots of ups and downs. My LilB came back after 4 months away and I started the process of turning her into a inside cat. Everything was perfect she was sleeping in the house during nights, using the litter box and being super friendly. She was still spending the day time on my porch enjoying the spring weather. Until today when I tried to get her in the pet taxi to a visit to the vet. She was familiar with the pet taxi because I had treats in it and she would go in and out, so I think it was going to work. But it was a disaster, she was in total distress climbed walls, counters, windows and bit me few times piercing my leather gloves. It is painful but I washed well and put some antibiotics. I thought it was the right thing to do before welcoming her into my house with our other pets and family to keep everyone safe. I was also hoping to get her microchipped. I released her to the outside and she is under the porch, I think she will stay there for a while and maybe she will even leave to look for a safer place but I truly hope that she will calm down and at least get back to leave in our outside cat room in her heated house.But I don’t think she is meant to be an indoor cat. I will have to let her make her own decisions and live in her own terms, I will need to be at peace with that knowing that I tried my best.
