But I fed a stray cat today. She (or he) was in my yard. She looked clean and healthy but I figured she was looking for food. I ran in (she tried to follow me inside) and got some of my cat's food and gave it to her. She eagerly ate it. She left when she was finished.

I feel good about my decision and hopefully she does have a good home though I did not notice any tags.

I've heard the same thing, but I would have done exactly what you did.  I always thought my mother told me not to feed stray cats because she was heartless. :)

Lol... I've always heard its because they will keep coming back. Well I'd rather them come back than to starve. I'm glad others feel the way I do!

I've heard that's what will happen, lol. If I know they have a family, that's different. But I've never seen this cat before and there is still so much snow out. I didn't want it to be cold and hungry.
