A very fast, smart 12 year old feral....a beautiful animal. I'm a newbee to this....currently "negotiating" with him...deliberating....TNR or TN and attempt to bring inside?
*The neighbor lady who has been feeding the community cats tells us he lost his best buddy/momma last year and verified his age.
*I'm newly retired, the time, commitment and expense is no problem, I'm resolved to make this guys life easier
*Around Halloween, i started feeding him in our backyard....in the 2 months since he enters a back room (sliding glass door) and eats indoors. He greets me and I'm able to (carefully) pet him already , while he's concentrating on eating.
As I'm new to such an undertaking, I humbly yield to the collective wisdom and experience of you forum members and submit a question or 2.
As its getting cold here in the northeast (I'm on eastern Long Island) should I TNR *immediately* (releasing after rehab, of course? OR TN and make an attempt at an indoor foster?
In this pic he's letting me know "I'm here"!
