Hi all, I'm new to this board and would certainly appreciate opinions. A couple months ago I trapped a cat that I had been feeding at my workplace for 6 months or so. While she was there, the closest she would come would be within 5 ft. of me. On 2 occasions, I still had my hand on her food bowl while she ate from it. She's now home with me and lives in my office. I was wondering on how to tell if she is a "true" feral or a stray gone wild. The vet unfortunately opened her (to spay) and found that she had already been spayed, but her ear isn't clipped. She's between 6 and 7 years. As of yet, I still haven't attempted to pet her (except the "glove on a stick" a couple times when I first brought her home and she attacked it badly!). Also, when I am in the room, she prefers to "hang out" in the dog crate I have set up for her on top of a table; it's her safety zone. Only recently is she eating and using her litterbox while I am in the room. I'd love to hear opinions! Will I ever be able to know? Thanks!
