Well our little feral cat Smudge did come home on the 16.03.13, she was released back into the garden and disappeared straight away. It was nearly 48 hours later when she finally turned up again and was waiting for food. Think Mommy wore out the carpets upstairs constantly looking for her!!!
Mommy says it has been a massive u turn as Smudge now has a trust issue with Mommy. She will wait for food but run as soon as Mommy goes outside and will only return to the food when Mommy goes back inside and locks the door.
Yesterday and today have been a great response from her, she is still not as trusting but has not disappeared. Smudge has started letting Mommy put food where she is but no longer any nose nudging.
We know it is going to take time and lots of patience but after a year of building trust it is very upsetting to go back to square one :(
We knew that we would have to catch Smudge to get her neutered, have taken her back into our garden, into our lives and given her another chance of being loved. We will be here for you always Smudge, this is your home for when you feel ready to take the next step.
lots of love Tilly, Mommy, Ethan and Smudge xxxx

Smudge will come around.
Just keep giving her lovings...she knows you love her.
Our PJ got loose the first time but she came back and now she's even in the house all the time. She said she loves being an inside kitty...but she still likes to go outside on a leash.
Have a great day.
Don't worry Tilly mommy. Smudge is prolly a lil mad with you. She be okay 'gain. Jus' be patient. Youse not alla way back to square one. Is on'y a minor set-back.
It are probably only a minor setback and she'll be back to trusting you again.
