I have been helping a stray cat recently.
She hung around the house during the Summer. I would give her something to eat.
She usually only came once a day.
This changed around Christmas.
She asked for food a few times a day.
When it became cold, she stayed near.
I decided to bring her inside.
She spent time keeping to herself,
and remained in the corner,
except when she needed food.
Now, she sleeps on my bed, snuggled up beside me.
I think I have won her trust.
It can be difficult for a stray to trust people,
as they have had difficult experiences.
But it is so rewarding when they do.
