I've been feeding a small skinny feral cat for about 3 months. The cat is only about 6 mos old. It started out eating outside on my step but quickly started to come in and eat inside the doorway. It occasionally snoops around the house but it doesn't like to be petted and it seems very nervous. I'm kind of concerned on how it will manage in the winter snow. I'm in the suburbs and most of the city cats stay under abandoned buildings. Nothing like that here. Anyways I closed the door behind the cat last night and within 3 minutes it tore my house apart trying to get out. It was running around the celiing on the curtain rods and trying to get out the windows. It tore the curtains down, knocked over plants and tore thru the kitchen knocking everything off the counters. A small disaster. I'm thinking I may not be able to save this cat.
