Re: Feral cats help?
If these cats are feral are you sure you want to bring them into your home? Would it be OK for you to have outdoor cats with your landlord if they are feral? Youve started out good with feeding them at the same time each day. I would continue to feed them soft food. When you put it out, can you sit in the yard? When you go to feed them let them hear you call them or talk to them so they get use to your voice. So they will get accustom to you and begin to trust you. Leave clean water out for them 24/7.
Sometimes when a cat has been abandoned and been on it owns for awhile it become warry of humans but they can come around. It just takes time. Can you put soft rug or kennel on your porch to see if they would start using it?
