How do I win the trust of a stray cat I feed?
This cat and several other cats appeared last year after hurricane Harvey. I think the others had other people take them in.
The one that I feed is not really friendly and hisses at me every time. He is waiting on me in the morning outside and at his evening meal.
Sometimes he even slaps at me but never has used his claws. I have never screamed or slapped at him.
What can I do to gain his trust?
He will let me pet him on the back while he is eating, but that is the only time I am allowed to do so. Any suggestions?
