Ok, I have a question. I'm not rehoming one, I just took one in. We just took in a 6yr old female orange tabby. Sadie was, for some reason that I don't know, taken from a feral cat colony when she was around 1yr old. She was spayed and then adopted out. She's lived in the same home for the past 5yrs. They decided that they had too many pets with their child and another on the way, so they wanted to place her, because she's always been shy of people. She's not at all aggressive. The lady's father-in-law is a vet at one of the top vet schools in the country, and he's handled all of her care, so everything has been done, and she's good through December of this year. I do know that when a feral cat has been tamed, and rehomed, the move can set them back for days, weeks, or even months. Since we've done rescue for so many years, and have rehabilitated and adopted out a high number of cats, we decided to take her. Too many people aren't aware of how to handle a cat with her history, and even though this is our first adult tamed feral to come in, we understand the patience needed to share a home with a cat like Sadie. It doesn't matter to us if she's ever a lap cat or not, as long as she's happy, that's the most important thing. My question, though, is have any of you taken one in like her? Was there anything you noticed different in the adjustment period or behavior in general? I'm home all of the time, so I can keep an eye on her. My thoughts were just revolving around the fact that she wasn't a kitten when she was caught and tamed, so I'm not sure how that will affect her from leaving the home she went to right after and stayed at for 5yrs. Here are pictures I took of her when I first picked her up and arrived home. There will be more to come, but I didn't want to terrify her with the flash. I just needed a couple of pictures in the unlikely event she somehow got out. The chances of that are extremely slim since she's in a back room, but I'd rather be safe than sorry. Thanks for any input!
