Taming a stray cat. We have a young stray cat that has been coming around our house a lot lately. I think it is living in our garage and I'd like to make an honest house cat out of it. [more inside]

I assume the cat is an offspring of my neighbor's semi-wild cats. We've been leaving food out for the cat for the past few weeks on our back porch which it always eats. It will come into the kitchen and sniff around and raid the dog food, but it always bolts when we come near it. I'd like to see if I can lure it inside before Winter because I'm afraid it will die if it tries to stay the Winter in the garage. What is the best way to attract and keep a youngish stray cat without totally freaking it out and scarring it for life? Has anyone done this successfully, what did you do?
