what organization are you from in st louis? I live in the city and am currently looking for a companion for my ChiChi.She is 16 and has a bit of a cattitude, so I am looking for a male with a good spirit who can tollerate her.
Sorry to get off the subject of your rescue attempt: in my experience if you give kitty enough time to get used to you he/she will be a little more trusting and you can slowly move the food inside the house.As far as the bugs I too would suggest you place the food ( in a bowl) on a shallow lid filled with a little water as far as the ants are concerned the flies will still get to it.Do you have a garage or some sort of outside dwelling?I have gotten ferels to trust me slowly but surely by putting their food, water, blanky in a dog house, let them get used to me feeding them and changing bowls,bedding etc.. then move them in the house and socialize them.Well good luck,ChiChi and I send lots of kitty love
