...and no one in his family wants a cat?
She gets left alone, outside, to fend for herself. She followed her man around outside like a faithful shadow, they say. She is spayed. I'm told there was a big feeder full of food inside the house, so she was well cared for. He didn't even have a winter coat, until a neighbor gave him one. It sounds like maybe all they had was one another. And now she doesn't even have him.
She is scared and growling. She scratched the neighbor who tried to get her into a carrier to take her to the TCSPCA. The SPCA set a trap for her but she did not go in.
She came down the steps and let me pet her head briefly, before lapsing into growls. She ate a bit of the wet food I gave her.
I've left a trap (with the back door removed) and a bowl of dry food. The neighbor will feed her in the trap each morning for a few days, until we get her used to it.
If worse comes to worse, I can net her. I hate doing that, because it freaks them out so badly. Hopefully she'll go in a trap, or come to trust me enough that I can give her a push into a crate. One way or another, since she let's me touch her, we'll get her caught.
