Thank you so much for caring, This site is SPECTACULAR for help. I really couldnt have been so calm about the whole thing without you guys. So helpful...Well the package of "comfort zone" should arrive tomarrow...it's not much use anymore, but maybe I'll put it away for another time.
No sign of the of the kitty, I really think he just left, and was very happy to do so. He really was a wild cat, and for that, maybe I should have left him be. The farm he lived at isnt too far away, maybe 5 miles, I'm hoping he finds his way back, and joins his group of cats. Im hoping he finds someplace nice to stay. But, when he left, he looked like he was very happy. Like i said, he was jumping like free willy...The air must have been like a refreshing acceleration for him.
Hence, the name I now have for him, "willy".
I think it was just ment to be...he was ment to be outside, and if ANYONE would have took him in, he would have been the same way, and maybe ran out a door, or gotten away. It's his world out there, and I think I may have either helped him know what "inside" feels like, or either scarred him for life. I dont think I scarred him much, because we never hurt him, or intentionally tried to make him uncomfortable. He just wanted to be outside.
That's all there was to it. He was under the bed for a reason, because he was scared, and that was the only place he felt safe. He wouldnt come out, he never explored, he wasnt curious about what the room smelled like, or looked like. He was furious at me for ever bringing him into this walled place of no escape.
I am in the searching for a new kitty. I think I will go the "domestic" route this time. It's probably better as I now know I'm not a good Feral mommy. It was a mistake, that I can never take back, and I am thoroughly embarrassed about it.
I will be able to have pictures of my kitty that I've had for a while soon on here. I want to make a signature with him in it. He's so fat and loving.
We adopted him about a year ago, and he's been happy as a peach (i'm not sure how happy peaches are, but you'd think they are pretty happy due to the "i'm peachy" term), ever scince he stepped foot in our house, He was kept in such a small cage...so when we brought him home, he was running around smelling everything, and purring, and wiping his scent everywhere.
I suppose I thought that that's what "willy" (or should I call him "free willy"?) would do too...But i was dead wrong. Never seen it comming.
I will also let you know about my search for the new kitty.
Thanks so much guys....
