Okay. I’m feeling quite encouraged! This morning I discovered that the pile of bedding I had left out for her, has been taken under the shed (judging by the trail of straw left behind) so it seems that she likes her new home. I have left a shallow tray of water for her, but wanted to ask about feeding? I understand that cat food could be a good supplemental food for her, but is it necessary? I seem to have a good supply of slugs/snails and invertebrates and I am wary of encouraging rats (we have chickens, and rats have been an issue in the past) there are also a fair number of urban foxes about. What are your thoughts on this?? Many thanks.
