Well look at me
We rented an apartment in Benalmadena Pueblo, Spain. There are loads of feral cats around and we seem to have adopted 3 of these feral cats.
They came every day for food and eventually one started to come inside...and gradually let us pet him, while the other two sneaked in sometimes.
We moved round the corner and the cats came too. we have the original 3 plus at times one or two others although only the 3 attempt to come in.
Ee are nearing getting the second one to let us pet her, although she is very nervous. We put their food and water on the window sill and leave the window open and very often come in and find all 3 lazed out on the sofa!
They don't run away unless we get too close. Slowly they are becoming friendlier but very afraid.
We have named them and they seem to respond to their names. Puma is the friendliest, he will talk to you and let you pet him, we have yet to get him 'onto our lap' - maybe we will one day.
