Is currently sitting on a chair under the kitchen table.

Yes, I was able to pick him up quite easily and bring him inside. He wandered around a bit sniffing and looking very wary, then he jumped up on the seat and settled in. I've been able to pat and scritch him without any trouble at all.

I think he's tolerating me now.

I could have picked him up tonight if I'd wanted to. I'm going to have to eventually, I want to take him to a vet and get him checked out, but I'm afraid the stress of that could undo everything. *dilemmas*

He was out the back under the swinging chair, so I got his bowl and took it inside to fill it. As I went back outside I saw he was right there where I put the bowl. He knows I'm a source of food. I was able to pat him more this evening because I was able to get closer, no fence between us.

Greycat has taken to sleeping in the rose garden in the last few days. He'd been laying there for the last few hours and I noticed him again from the kitchen window. So I got out a bowl and filled it with cat bikkies and went to give him some. As I approached the garden he just looked at me, and I knew something was going to happen when he spoke. He miaowed twice, pretty loud. After trying to approach him in the garden with no success, I went around the side and put the bowl over the fence. He miaowed a bit more and slowly approached the bowl while I still stood there.

As he was eating I slowly leaned over the fence and patted him on the neck. He only flinched a little. Poor thing must be really hungry because his desire to eat was overcoming his desire not to be touched. I was able to lean down multiple times and gently stroke his neck and some of his head. He wouldn't eat out of my hand though when I tried, so I put the biscuits back in the bowl for him to finish off while I put stuff on the compost.

When I came back he was still eating but I couldn't approach him again, he ran off (not far, but far enough). I don't think the little yappy dog next door was helping.

ANY quick movements and he bolts. But this is certainly progress. :)
