There is a mostly feral cat that lives at a house we have been working on. The owners moved and left him and he has never quite trusted again. He cannot be picked up and rarely touched. He is wily and will not enter a container of any form no matter how hungry. We make sure he has food and we think there are others in the neighborhood that do as well. I was able to sit very still and he came close to me, even put a nose to the camera. If I moved towards him at all, he ran away. He was content to have me in his yard space, but no touching.
He has been named SoCo for the area he lives in. He is watching me from across the yard.
Approaching with caution
Hey, what is this thing?
