Can I do anything else?
I've been feeding a cat who would use to pass by the house. It started with treats, then a cup of food "just in case". A month later, shes eating more than my two indoor cats together and she's sleeping in a box I put out for her.
For 3 weeks now I've been transferring her scent to my cats and brining in the blankets from the box so they can smell those. I've also let her come inside a couple times while the boys were upstairs.
Today I am going to the clinic to get her checked out. Its evident she is going to queen soon so I need to get her inside and out of the cold asap.
The problem is, one of my cats will hiss at me if I try to pick him up after he's smelled her. He's done this everyday for a week now.
He did okay when we got our second cat, which was another male of equal size and age. That was 2 years ago. I think if he made it through that he can make it through anything.... but the hissing has thrown me for a loop. I would except it a few weeks ago, but by now I figure he'd be over it.
They've also met at the door crack a couple times and once at the glass front door.
Have I done all I can? The cat needs to come in soon, it's been below freezing 3 days in a row.
Any other suggestions?
