There are actually two in my neighborhood, Grenval, the tabby, and Spot - all black with a white spot on his chest. Grenval very clearly showed Spot, right in front of me, who I was and where to come one morning a few weeks ago. They are both often in my yard. They both have the TNR'd left tipped ears.
I put out dry food (Taste of the Wild) at 7:00 a.m. (even getting up on days off to get it out there then) and I take it in at dusk. Grenval comes most mornings, though not all. Sometimes I go to the back of my garden and call her. Some mornings she comes out and has even answered me.
Spot appears later in the day. In the evening I put out canned food, and most
nights Grenval comes for that. Spot started tonight, too.
Slowly I am moving the canned food closer and closer to the Feralvilla. I tried putting catnip in it, but no interest. It was nearly freezing a couple of nights ago. But now it is back up in the 40's as a low. So, probably it isn't cold enough. But we had days and days of constant rain last week, and very chilly, and I hoped they'd realize what a cozy shelter it is. Eventually, I'll put the canned food in the Feralvilla and hope they figure it out.
I have to take up all the food by dark or else the resident skunk with get it, not to mention raccoons. I worry about them, and possums, using the Feralvilla. I hope the opening is too small for adult raccoons. And I'm going to put it up on cement blocks (with an insulated wood floor) to keep the skunk out and raise it up above the usual snow level. But, still I'm worried about other animals using it.
I have a 6 foot wood fence around my yard. I've been closing the gates every night for some time to keep out coyotes. We have them around here, and they can't go over or under the fence. But, everyone else can.
