Just about two weeks ago, I heard Isis snarl and growl on the window-sill, typical "someone's here looking at me" sound. I went to take a look and there was this cute little alley cat sitting there looking at us! Isis hissed at him when she saw me come closer, so he ran away, but turned around just to give us one last look... and he was SO cute, I melted on the spot...
Now the other day I saw a shadow under a car coming home late at night, and recognized the little alley cat. So I have been putting out wet and dry food for him every night, by our building (but far enough that our cats won't see me do so), and every morning the dishes are licked clean. Last night he was sitting nearby, waiting for his food to be put out
He ran accross the street before I could get any closer to him though, so I just put down his food and went home. Sure enough this morning everything was gone.
I want to give him space, and time, and keep putting out food for him until he feels he may be able to trust this human girl a little bit... just wondering if you guys may have some advice for me? Things to do and not to do? It would be much appreciated!
I haven't had a chance to see what sex that cat is, but I would think he is a tomcat, he has a very round face with cheeks that stick out. He seems young enough. As soon as he grows a little bit friendlier, a friend of mine will bring her trap so we can try to trap and neuter him (unless he is neutered already, you never know). At the very back of my mind, I have the hope that maybe, maybe one day he can befriend the girls and move in with us - but let's not make this a priority just yet
