I did good this week! The other night, I happened to look out the front door only to see a stray tabby cat sitting on the front porch. He looked nervous & skiddish, just kind of balled up in the corner of a rug at the end of the porch. I thought to myself "this shouldn't be a tough one for me" lol (I have a knack when it comes to cats). Luckily my cats were inside (they can be very territorial). So I just stood there for a few minutes, sweetly talking to him through the door to try to get him used to seeing & hearing me before I went out. So then I slowly walked out towards him (and it was cold out there by the way lol). He backed up but I kept talking to him. And then he kind of raised his head towards my hand and let me pet him. He was still very nervous though. So I pet him for a few minutes & talked to him. Then I opened up some cat food & put it into a tray for him & he immediately started eating. I stayed with him for a minute while he ate then I walked back inside for something & went right back to find him gone & the tray licked clean. He was obviously pretty hungry. I haven't seen him anymore since that night. I keep looking out every night to see if he's back, but so far nothing.
