The feral male I had neutered with the help of For The Love of Cats Rescue has made a complete turn around.. he lives in the yard.. he doesn't leave for 2 or more weeks anymore and instead of swiping at you when you walk by and hissing- he rubs your leg and lets you pet him. He has this cackling wierd purr.. well, he is pretty old obviously.. This is the cat who terrorized the vet tech at the clinic.. He had to be caught with a drop down trap....he even scared

If he has come around like that, he isn't truly "feral" - more like a stray.

Yes, you're right the label doesn't seem to fit anymore. He still struts like an old lion though!! He's spoiled now as the rest of mine are. If I don't put canned food on top of dry- he looks up at me and grunts..
