Brings a whole new meaning to 'cat lady' presuming OP is a lady.

Not true in my experience. There was a small gray cat hanging out on my porch one day and wouldn't leave so I gave it a can of tuna and some water (which it happily devoured) and I haven't seen it since.

I take in all kinds of strays too. I'd love having a crow or a raven that hangs around like a pet but not having to keep it inside or in a cage. Feed it tinned cat food - better for it as it will have added vitamins etc. :)

The noise must be quite caw-cophonic!

You know, there's a place where they love crow puns. Its called Crowatia, not to be confused with Croatia, you would.... murder it with your crow puns there.

Fun fact: a group of crows are called a "murder of crows". I once looked up murder of crow tattoos and was amazed at some ink work people had done.

I am impressed that OP was able to raise another living breathing creature. I have many brown plants to attest to how incompetent of a caregiver I am.

I'm sure there are dozens of neglected children who have seen reruns of Maury starring their parents. They would tell you taking care of a living thing isn't *that* hard. After all, they're still alive. ;)

Yes, my grandmother has two 'pet' crows. They come down for every meal and she feeds them chip leftovers, breadcrumbs, the works. Their names are Sheryl and Russell, so punny.

while that was very sweet, you should have known better. If you move away or simply stop feeding it, the poor bird wont know where to get food and it will die.

Crows are very good scavengers, it's probably just taking the easy route begging from someone it knows will provide food without the hunt. That doesn't mean the bird will never know how to eat on it's own again.. OP did a good thing. Maybe try to lure the bird into a cage and drive it to a wooded area so it can thrive.

Unlikely. Crows are very intelligent birds. I've seen them manipulate discarded plastic baggies to get food out of them. I've seen them feign injury to get handouts from people. I've witnessed groups of them harassing other birds, like eagles and seagulls, in an organized fashion. They're very social birds, with a well-defined pecking order. I'm sure the crow would do okay if he neglected to feed it any longer. Still, a crow would be a cool pet, and can be taught to speak, much like a parrot.
