But she has been gone a week now.
Her kittens were on her the other day, trying to nurse her and rough-housing with her and she spit and hissed at them, smacked them with her paws and bolted out the cat door. We have not seen her since. She has a bright blue tattoo on her back leg which is white, but I have been to the shelters and called the vets and no one has brought in an injured feral. She was just about allowing me to pick her up too, so the chance that she is with someone in their house is pretty slim. I am afraid, she is gone and I have to accept that like it or not. Thanks for your concerns all of you.
