Still continuing about the stray/homeless cat I feed...

I don't know if she has been spayed, gotten any shots ever, what her
general health condition is, etc.

It would give me great peace of mind if there are any charitable vets
or clinics in greater Chicago area, who could examine her and provide
whatever they deem necessary.

I have never had pets, and don't know the scene. We would be grateful
for any reference. I don't mind driving 1-2 hours for good quality
service.

I saw in one of your later posts that she comes in to watch TV!!!! Sounds
to me like she found her home!!!! I took in a stray-homeless that I had
been feeding outside. I took him in when it got very cold & I was worried
he wouldn't make it outside... Well, he was real scared the first few weeks
but as I type this he is sprawled out on my, (excuse me, HIS), bed enjoying
all those creature comforts like regular food, warmth, etc. By the way,
mine has never been outside again and never looked back! He knew how to use
the litter box from day one (I had added a little dirt from outside where I
had seen him go just so he would get the message_, has never missed the box,
and is the mushiest of all my cats....

Sounds like your little one is ready to move in. Maybe try feeding her
inside & putting a litter box.... I bet she'd like that!

LOL, I just recently had this happen to me, except that the break-in period
was more like a couple of days. She's been in front of the TV ever since.
Outside seems to be a distant memory.
