New feral - Bink

This cat, who I've named Bink, came from our local rescue group Animalkind last September. As a feral, she spent two months in the big walk-in cage in my barn before being released. As hoped, she did hang around; I saw her every feeding time. At some point, however, she moved out of my barn and into the neighbor's hay barn across the road, where she remained all winter. I started feeding her over there and she gradually started taming down, to the point where I could get within 10 feet of her.
I was finally able to trap her last Sunday and brought her up to my house. She has potential to be an indoor/outdoor house cat. I really could not let her go on living in my neighbor's barn - he has a large, active farming operation and enormous equipment coming and going - not a safe place for a little cat.
Bink looks a little baleful in the photo, but she does like her soft bed and regular tasty meals.

What a cute kitty!
I think if I were a cat, I'd be in love with that bed, too.

She's adorable. I'm glad she is safe and warm. It's been a rough winter in the NE this year.

Greenport,
Bink is a Cutie! So glad you are going to work with her, now she has a great chance of finding a Forever Home!

Yes, thanks everyone, she is coming along. I touched her on the flank today and she hissed a bit, then allowed it.
My eight other cats visit her cage by jumping up on the stand next to it and looking in. A laid-back bunch, they seem unfazed.
Sharon, Bink has a home with me if she will accept it.
