|Is the rescue lady associated with an animal shelter? If she is, she should know the legality of taking in a cat and if there are laws in your area about leaving a cat outside and neglected. If after caring for it and taking it to the vet, an owner does show up, claiming the cat, produce the bills you have paid caring for the cat and ask for a reimbursement before turning the cat over. Nine times out of ten, the "owners" won't pay and tell you to keep it.
If the shelter has the cat, and the "owner" shows up at your door, just state the truth. You fed it because you thought it was a stray and the rescue came and took it away.
If you want to foster the cat or adopt it, do it through the shelter and rescue lady so if someone eventually shows up at your door claiming the kitty, you can direct them to the shelter.
