so here's the story:
A little over a month ago, I noticed that one of the feral cats (about 8 months old) around my condo had an injured leg and he was limping around. I trapped him, so I could help him recover and then neuter-release.
However, I found out that the leg had probably been broken at the elbow, but then healed the wrong way. so basically he had a leg that couldn't bend and that's why he was limping. Obviously I couldn't release him like that.
Although he was very afraid of humans when I first got him, over the weeks he has mellowed. However, sometimes he still shies away from human contact and hisses at me when I try and pick him up. The plus side is that he loves to be cuddled and will purr loudly when I manage to get him on my lap for a cuddle :P
I've finally found a potential adopter for him (I can't keep him as I already have 2 cats+1 dog and live in a condo), but I'm still worried about whether he can ever be as tame as a typical housecat, even though I've already told the adopter that the cat isn't that friendly (yet).
