I am glad Lucy found you
there are hundreds of ferrals, drop-offs, strays here in my area...I have food out at all times, just so they all have something, but I also sit out there all the time lol, and eventually they get used to me, then I get them to take the kitty treats from my hand, from there its fairly easy for me to gain full trust and get them used to being handled then I get them rehomed, I have had alot of success so far. the ones that are to feral to ever be pets we use traps with, catch them, get them to the vet to get fixed and get shots, then we release them, its actually working really good.
But sadly because I live just on the verge of the country we get a ton of drop offs, its heart breaking to see someones pet being abandoned, to see the fear in their eyes and knowing they have no idea how to fend for themselves, me try to get them in right away, they are easy to rehome, but sometimes we have to take then to rescues til we can rehome them. How I became the kitty saver here I dont know, its been years since I have been doing it, now people knock on my door with found cats for me to handle lol...
right now Leo is at my front door (inside) talking to my newest ferals lol...its twins fred and george and a little kitten they are protective of we just call baby, I can handle George but not Fred or the baby...George trusts me alot, he even lets me hold him and cuddle him, now I just gotta get his brother to like me to lol
