 	We had a cat from the farm one over do this to us. The cat in 
question had been raised with a litter of pups and so had a very confused 
idea about what sort of animal it was but it did know we'd let it in and 
the neighbors would not (There was an incident where they left it in a 
room with a box of day old chicks and were suprised to come home to an 
empty box and a pleased looking cat).

 	I used to grab the local feral kittens, tame them and adopt them 
out. This left me with all of the ones that couldn't be adopted by anyone 

 	I caught one feral queen showing her kittens around my porch, 
which she had apparently figured out could produce food on demand...
