hi all, not sure if this is the thread i first posted about the stray cat i named ruby. i have been feeding her for about three weeks now, she's maybe 3 months old. she won't let us near her. some suggested a cat bed with a blanket we use, so she can get use to our smell. we put one out before we left for our christmas holiday. we just returned today. the food is gone, and the cat bed has long white hairs in it, that i sure hope are hers, but i have not seen her yet. others suggested a live trap. i am thinking of doing this. but i have a new question. we live on private owned land that is part of a national forest. housed are few and far between. these cats are born in the forest by cats that have probably had zero conntact with people. sometimes you will see one come out of the woods to sniff around a meadow, but if they see you, they bolt. is it possible to tame a cat like this? or should i just leave ruby alone? she is already terribly skittish, she won't come near the house if we are outside, and if she's eating the food on the deck she'll take off into the woods if we come near the patio doors. my husband says these cats can fend for themselves, but i have fallen in love with her. it's so cold out. the bears are sleeping, but the wolves are not. i'm so worried about her. anyone have experience with wild cats? can they be trained to be inside cats?
