I really enjoyed your story and the art--I thought the first one was actually a photo!
My feral kitty, who shares her dish with the racoons (they all eat together!), is named KC, for Kitty Coon! She came to us a few months ago, bones sticking out everywhere, and is now nice and plump. I trapped her once, with the intention of taming her, as she was only about 10 weeks old, and kept her in a small bathroom in the basement for 24 hours. She hissed, arched, and growled every time I went near her. She didn't eat or potty, either. My parents insisted I let her go, as they didn't want her in the house. Now it's time to spay her, and she won't go near the trap again. In fact, the neighbor's big fat cat ended up in it, lol.
Anyone got any suggestions on how to get her trapped again? She runs and hides when she sees people.
