As someone who specializes in ferals (the older ones) and not taming them, but socializing them, I disagree with cattrapper. Ferals can be made adoptable. I have had some arrive here that no one could get close to for months, even years, and in the end they have turned into the biggest purr babies of them all and great lap cats. If you approach them in the right manner, on their terms and work on their time schedule not yours, they can be reached and bonded with- but NEVER tamed. Socialized, yes, accepting of humans, yes, but tame, nope. Not on your life. They will still run at the slightest noise, hide under the bed when strangers come into the home and even hiss at you from time to time if you try and force yourself on them and they don't want you at the moment.
