got this yesterday
Lena is living in our garden. I am feeding her 3 times a day, and she is allowing me to get nearer to the bowl each time. The garden is cat-proofed, and there are lots of places where she can curl up and snooze, she is gaining her confidence, and is actually waiting for me now at feeding time!
I cannot tell you how relieved I am that she is safe. My only concern now is that if the weather turns cold again, she would rather sit and freeze than head for the warmth of the home or the garage.
It's going to be a slow process, but one I am happy to undertake... for her.
Incidentally I don't feel she is pregnant at all. she may have been, but I don't think she is now. I have know pregnant cats who have had some trauma in their lives to "re-absorb" their kitties. Instinct kicks in, and either the circumstances or the time is not right for them, or it could be any number of factors...
We have no history on Lena, which would be nice (but not always, as we know only too well, possible).
It will take a very special Foster Mum to help this little girl to break out of that shell she has made for herself.
But when she does, we will all be so happy for her.
Thankyou all, for your concerns and help, it is a breath of fresh air to know the support and help is out there... thankyou.
