Hi. I was here about a year ago, with a similar issue I am going through again. Different cause, same result. A feral kitten, Coonie, I caught 3 years ago, who seemed to be a regular domesticated cat after all this time, jumped out of my window through the side of the air conditioner. Normally, she's fine-but when I found her outside-she reverted right back to her feral instincts. I didn't know initially, I picked her up hiding in the basement window edge, and she went crazy and scratched me pretty bad. Normally, I'd hold on-but she was out of control. She disappeared-a little while later I finally found her in the tire well in a car (not good). I went to try to figure out how to get her out safely and quickly, but she moved back to my back yard. She was by the side of my house, I turned to figure out how to block her and get to her, and she disappeared again. Neither of us saw what direction she went. So for the last 12 hours, we have been calling and searching, and nothing...I know she is terrified and I know she is hiding probably, hopefully somewhere not unsafe. I am devastated! I keep going back outside and looking-but it feels absolutely despairing. Last year I went through this with a pregnant feral, and after a week she finally crossed our path-after having starved the entire time. I am hoping to find my little Coone ASAP! Any good vibes would be greatly appreciated-because I think they helped last time! Thanks alot!!
