This is our feral cat. Her name is MaMa and she's been living in our backyard shed since 2001. After she had two litters in the shed we trapped her with a humane trap and had her fixed. We feed her twice a day and she's always happy to see us, but she won't let us touch her and usually cautiously keeps her distance. She talks up a storm and we talk back to her. I still hope that someday we'll be able to lure her into the house. UPDATE: As of the beginning of 2005 MaMa will allow us to pet her while she eats. She's still very, very cautious, but most days she tolerates us while she eats. The rest of the time she has nothing to do with us. :)
