I want to get rid of the cat I have been feeding

I just got an email from someone who wrote yesterday. She said a community cat has been coming up to her home and she has been feeding it. The cat is fighting with the community cat she had previously adopted and she says she is getting annoyed.

I suggested NOT feeding the cat upstairs and she wrote back to ask if the cat will stop coming up. She said if the cat does not stop coming up, she is going to trap it and bring it to the SPCA.

I don't understand why people feed the cats upstairs and then look surprised that the cats are coming to their homes. If you feed it upstairs, where do you expect the cat to go for food? The place it is being fed! It can be fed in the void deck and it will remain in the area and not go up but if you feed it outside the flat, of course the cat will associate it.

Looks like better for her to adopt the community cat and feds both cats at home.and make sure enough food for both orelse both will fight again.

Difficult for her to sever ties with the comm.cat who now recognised her and know the way to her home. As you suggested, she should try feeding the cat below and not let it follow her up.
Don't she feel sad to give the cat to the SPCA.

Weird that she has the heart to... I would be so torn. Just feed it somewhere else. Makes things so much easier.
