I am still trying to get this little girl.

She will come when I call her, (little gray girl) no easy name yet. She will come get cheese within inches. She is very quick and I can't even pretend to move. The feeding person spent two different days trying to live trap her. Her sisters will step over plate and go in and get food.

Have you tried feeding her in the carrier? If not, do and continue to do so. Always feed in the carrier and put her cheese in there. Then, hopefully, you can close the carrier door one day. Maybe rig the carrier door with string rope, and you can pull that shut from a distance. Just an idea. Time and patience, you will succeed. I KNOW IT!! You continue to make progress thats what counts,

Thanks for the update!!!
Hugs

Great idea Holly!

You are making progress Allen. If she's coming to get cheese, that is a HUGE sign that she's building trust. Keep it up!

Finally an update on the now 1yr old feral girl, now known as Meeshu.

The feeding person has been petting her while she eats. Yesterday she just tells me, "I'm going to grab her". I got the carrier and stood it on end, she grabbed her by the scruff and put her in carrier and I shut door. There was no joy, I am kinda sad to take her away from her family. She made one frantic yowl (we have never heard her speak) and has been quite since. Overnight she came out of carrier for tuna. She would not come out for cheese this morning. Also at work her 'Momma' was waiting for me. I got cheese but she really did not care she just kept talking and talking to me as I petted her.

We have a vet appointment on Monday.

P.S. I could not think of a name. Then it hit me, "I will call you Meeshu". I spelled it in my Americanized as it sounds form. It means, 'Pretty' and/or 'Faithful'.

Meeshu has been examined, vaccinated, spayed and x-ray, all good. At his point the vet said the stub looks good and there is no infection and suggested to see how it goes.
