Ok, so it started 3 years ago when my neighbor moved and left behind her male and female cats
(along with 4 kittens). I caught the kittens and turned them over to a safe haven. Now, momma kitty, called "Star", was petrified of everyone but my neighbor. So, with lots of patience, I finally got her to come to my house to be fed. I trapped her and had her spayed. (Poppa kitty keeps to himself).
Anyway, over the last 3 years, Star has become very, very affectionate. She is a great little cat. She lives outside (can't bring her in with my two). My dad built her a house that is on my covered porch. I purchased a microwavable cat warmer on line for the winter time. She is quite comfy out there.
My problem is, I am moving a few towns away. I can't find anyone to take her (been trying for 3 years now
) and the local shelter says she has the right to live here forever. But I do not want to abandon her. If I take her with me, will she stay? Or will she get herself killed trying to find her way home? I am so worried, she is such a great, lovable little thing! And now that she is spoiled, I am afraid she wouldn't last long as a total stray again!!
