I have a cat that came to me as a feral kitten that I was going to foster and socialize and eventually find him a loving home. Well, 10 years later he's still here because I couldn't give him up. He is by far the most affectionate cat I have ever had. He sleeps by my pillow at night. I absolutely adore him. The problem is, there is still a lot of feral-ness there. I wish there was a forum for dealing with ex-ferals. I had another ex-feral who recently succumbed to cancer who had less of the wildness still there. Putting Advantage on him every month is extremely stressful because he knows when I have the Advantage in my hand. He then keeps his distance. He has allergic dermatitis to flea saliva so I absolutely have to get it on him. Does anyone know of an ex-feral forum? I searched Yahoo groups but didn't find one. It's hard to believe one doesn't exist because a cat that was once feral is different from other cats. I think I also did a bad job socializing him. I had a lot going on in my life in his kitten and teen years and he didn't get exposed to other people.
