If she really wants to feed it she should buy some dry cat food. Lots of things we eat are poison to cats (including onions and garlic) so she can't give it what she eats. They either need plain protein (fish, chicken, meat) or some dry cat food.
She's better off getting a water spray bottle and chasing it away every time she sees it. Cats who get fed don't leave.

Nuke - a little secret
Just like all americans do not think like texans
and all humans do not think like americans and cambodians
- not all species think like Homo sapien
Do you want to understand what is going on with the cat - or do you and your better half just want to impose your way of thinking onto the poor cat's behaviour?
Listen to what people are saying -
It is somebody else's cat for a start
If you feed the cat it will come to expect that
You are sending it very mixed messages
You are upsetting the natural order of the universe as the cat understands it
The cat is not your human friend dropping in for dinner, some affection and a bit of polite conversation.
If you want to keep mucking with the poor cats mind - go ahead, but it is both unkind to the cat, and false hopes you hold for your relationship with it..
Feed it and make it welcome and it will more than likely move in.
I had the problems with a cat climbing though the window and getting food from where it could, even that of the waste bin under the sink, problem apart from didn't know where it may have have slept and so on, it started to spray marking it's territory. I like cat's but had too shu the fellow away.
She has chosen to live by herself, it isn’t difficult to find a housemate. But she clearly doesn’t want to, she may be telling you that she is scared alone because she is fed up with you living so far away.
It seems to me that she is attention seeking, as most likely are you.
If you know it's got another home then stop feeding it and spray it with water when it comes around. If you don't think it does have anyone to feed it then be very grateful the cat has chosen you two to be its owners.
I hope you can convince your GF - I'm positive everyone can learn to love cats. They're utterly unique. I love all animals - with the notable exception of mosquitoes - but cats win all day long over dogs: you don't have to walk the cunts; you don't have to pick up their disgusting smelling faeces; they tend not to smell; they fuck off when they've had their fill of cuddles and attention, and they can certainly be as affectionate as dogs.
I believe you can buy disposable collars and inside place a message to ask who its owners are. Good luck.

A wet mop (for the clean up) will also be very effective to repel the cat should it want a bit of pay back. Having said that, any cat that gets drenched and still wants to fight with you in another thing altogether and you may want to have a rethink.
And stop feeding the bloody thing.
