Taming feral cats

A post on the feasibility of taming feral cats at Cat Out Loud. I found this interesting, because my female cat was feral once and was about a year old when she was picked up by the feral cat program and fixed. During her recovery period, the woman she was staying with felt that she was tame enough to be adopted, so she was turned over to the adoption agency. They had already clipped her ear in half, which is how they mark feral cats that have been fixed already.
The agency resisted giving her to us initially and tried to push a curtain-clawing kitten on us instead. They said that formerly feral cats are skittish, and I guess they thought we'd be loud and make her jumpy or whatever. We eventually talked them into handing the cat over already.
And she's fine. She sits in my boyfriend's lap while he's watching TV and sleeps on top of me when I sleep. Like the other feral cats Cat describes, she prefers to attack you for a petting while you're sleeping or on the toilet. And for some reason, she thinks that eating is a good way to get pet, so she demands that you follow her to her bowl so you can pet her while she eats. She's a little shy, but not very, not really.
I don't have much else to add to the whole feral cat discussion except that, and I'm adding Cat Out Loud to my blogroll.
