I have never had good luck with wild cats, but My Mom has integrated a few into her home.  She fed them and would gradually get closer and closer, and then usually one day a storm comes and the kitty zips into the house.  I think others will have better advice!


Just keep as you are doing.  She'll let you get closer and closer as she realizes that you come with the food.  That's how I got my Samson when Amie was a baby.  I fed an outside cat a little and Samson started coming as well.  I always set the food out at the same time and started sitting out there waiting for a little bit.  The other cat was older and too wary of humans, so she never came close, but Samson came a little closer day by day while I was out there.  After a little bit, he came up to the food while I was there.  Then, he let me pet him.  After a little while, I got him in the house, had him neutered, and made him mine.

Yikes! Remind me and Deej not to hang out around your house...<snip><snip> LOL

Familiarity is the key. Put food out there and sit at the end of the porch. Then, after a few days, move closer and closer. Start hand tossing little kitteh treats to the kitteh. Takes a little bit, but they come around some.
