If you can pet it and it comes to you, I wouldn't consider it feral, but that is by my definition. Some of our barn cats are very socialized because we try to find the kittens and get them used to human contact at an early age. Those, we can pick up, treat with medicine if needed and take the the vet without too much hassle. Those are the "barn cats". Then, there are the ferals that were raised in the woods and you only see them when you put out the buffet in the morning and at night. They normally won't come near anyone and won't eat until everyone is gone. They are also the ones that fight the most because they have learned they have to fight for their food.
To me, the ferals are the ones you can't get near, although with enough time and patience you can gain their trust. Once they start feeling comfortable around me, I stop thinking of them as feral even though technically I guess they are. It just depends on your own definition I guess.
