I had a feral cat we called 'Mama' because she was always pregnant. I'd leave my door half an inch open and she'd come in, look around, make a mad dash for the kitchen, hiss at Kirby and he'd hiss right back, and I'd raise my voice at him, which would scare Mama away and make Kirby climb up on the fridge. After a few mins Mama would come back and gobble down the cat food to her heart's content and run back out the door...never did drink any water. I cried my eyes out for 2 weeks after we moved; I knew she'd be back to my apt. but I wouldn't be there to take of her. I left tearful instructions to my friends in the office to be sure to keep an eye for Mama and feed her. I guess she's at Rainbow Bridge by now.

My daughter rescued 2 feral babies, brother and sister, and raised them to 18 and 19 yrs old.
