Hello everyone. I don't know if I should be worried but I'll explain the situation and would be grateful for any thoughts. For about 2 weeks I've been feeding a cat that I presume is a stray. I have an outside room - sort of where the washing machine is type of place and noticed wet pawprints on top of the machine. I started leaving food down twice a day and put a cushion on the washing machine. The food always goes and I only ever see the cat when it's dark and he/she races out and away but I can tell it's been tehre as the cushion is till warm! This is all fine and not a problem but yesterday my cat was outside and I went to find her and heard hissing and she ran inside chased by the stray. This is the only cat who hangs around that my cat seems to be afraid of - normally she defends her territory and does the chasing. I am worried that this cat is starting to defned what she sees as her territory but I don't want my own cat to ghet upset or distressed. Today I used fur from the grooming brush and put it all over the cushion so the stray might get the idea that she is not the only cat around but am unsure whether I shjould keep feeding a cat that scares my own cat. Any ideas?
