The two feral cats that live next door and need to move to my house are making a little progress in that direction. I have found one of them sunning herself under my front window. They are both coming to the front yard to be fed as long as nobody is in sight. Today i made great progress with Scruffy! I put out food this morning, but not a lot of it, so they were getting pretty hungry by this evening. I went next door with a big handful of food and sat on the front walkway talking to the cats with my hand outstretched. Scruffy slowly came closer and closer until finally she ate the food from my hand. That is real progress! I am sure they will never be really friendly, but at least they may not be so scared of us that they go hungry. Ideally, they will find another home that supplies better food and a dry place to sleep.
