I have been feeding some cats up by a gas station for months now, there were about 4 or 5 that stayed together. There was one that would come closer than the others, a little female that would get close but wouldnt let you touch her. Well after about a week of trying to catch her, I did and I brought her home with me. That was Monday, and she was so mad. She was so mad and tried so hard to escape from the pen I have outside. Its 6 feet by 8 feet and I escape proofed it the best can. I plan on taking her in and having her spayed as soon as possible, by the first of next week and getting her vaccinations and worming and tests. For the first 2 days, she acted like she wanted to be petted but just wasnt sure, so I would just feed her and talk to her and made sure she was ok. The first nite I stayed up all night watching her to make sure she didnt try to dig out of the pen, I made her a house out of a storage bin and put in a light in her pen to keep her warm at nite. Well she finally let my husband pet her, she loves him! He has been in the pen with her and she will let him pet her and she just loves him. I'm hoping all goes well and she can be a part of the family inside soon. She is solid white and looks like she is about 10 months old. I knew she would be coming into heat soon and having lots of kittens and I wanted to get her before that happened. I hope and pray she is ok and can come in with the rest, I know it will take time though for that to happen. I was feeling really bad Monday because she was so lost and scared and now I feel much better that she is warming up to us. Right now she is in her house I made for her soaking up the warmth from the light we put in for her. We are calling her Ladybug, so I guess that will be her name.
