We have had her 3 years in Nov. She was born outside and has always had a bit of a ferral streak in her.
She backs off an hisses when you try to stroke her, she hisses at you if yuo walk past her, if she does allow you to stroke her one minute she is enjoying it and the next she nips you, she sprays on the radiatior in ds's bedroom and yesterday, the final straw, she weed all over ds's school shirts I had ironed and folded and left on the dining room table
Dh has had enough now. He says she has to go.
I love cats, and whilst she is not particularly nice I feel kind of sad.
my mum had one of these when I was growing up -although she was house clean.... She lasted 22 years!!! She was a hardy old puss. All I can remember is getting bitten and scratched as a child, still no fear of cats at all now....
Still feral cats I wouldn't recommend with children... can you send her somewhere like a farm as the prevous poster said? ours was a superb mouser and ratter...
I think by ringing the CPL you are shoving the problem onto them as she's going to be hard to re-home....do you live in a rural area? Anyone you know with farms who'd like a mouser? You could put a card in post office or somthing?
There you go then! You could always offer to buy them sacks of dry cat food for them to give her as an incentive towards her keep if she were to go and live there...bet she'd be dead happy..ahhhhh <<whimsical rat catching jolly farmers wife emotion>>
