Feral Cats

There are three classifications of feral cats

  1. Total Feral – a wild cat with no previous human contact or only negative contact
  2. Semi-Feral – a shy or fearful cat that has had some positive human contact
  3. Converted Feral – an abandoned domestic cat that has reverted to semi-feral behavior

With intervention (spay/neuter, lots of hands on and TLC) I finally adopted some of the (semi-feral) cats above into my home and continue TLC. They are basically more trusting but still have a long way to go. Some like petting, some do not.  All are part of the family.
