................since she's only semi-feral
Hi, new member here. I have four kitties. My oldest girl is 15, a girl who is 6, and two siblings who are 5. The issue is with one of the siblings.
These two were born at my workplace (a winery), and they lived there until they were about 4 months old. It was during harvest, so I really didn't have time to do anything about them until late in the season. They were living in the loft above our bottling line, and I started to feed them. Then the guys (my boss and the guys I work with) were threatening to kill them
and I certainly couldn't let that happen, so I borrowed two cats traps, caught them, and took them home. I had them in the bathroom for the first few weeks, and after awhile the boy started responding to my pets, but the little girl never did. Now, I have tamed two ferals before, so I'm not exactly a novice, but she just never did come around. When I finally let them into the rest of the house I figured I could work with her and tame her over time. Not so much. If she is sitting near me, I can occasionally get her to sniff my finger, but that's it.
So here is the dilemma. I got a new job and will be moving in 3 weeks. I am having great anxiety about how to capture her. Moving is so frenetic as it is, and I have three other cats to transport. I could try a cat tap again, but the timing is the thing I am worried about. And I think I would have to have her already in a room by herself for that to work, so that the others wouldn't get in. HELP!
