(Vienna, Va, USA)
We have feral cats in our area.. A few of my neighbors take care of them and feed them.
My husband and I feed 2 ferals…There were 3 not to long ago, but the older guy was sick, very sick…The last time I saw him he kissed my foot, never did that before, and I believe he was saying thank you to us.
The other two guys still live on our deck, or in the garage (we leave it open just a little so they can keep warm and dry in the winter).
One of them, who we call Big Baby or Rodney comes into the house for most of the day and sleeps. He is extremely intelligent and so very well mannered.
We would like him to live with us, but he takes care of Momma the second cat. She is very sweet but is to afraid to come in. She did once or twice but felt uncomfortable.
I leave food in the front of the house for her and Big Baby and I also have food inside for Big Baby for the hours he hangs out with us inside. I guess I have spoiled them, because all they like is Friskies…and only fish and the dry food is also a mixture of fish.
We couldn’t love them more then we do and wish as long as there are feral cats out there they all get the same treatment…
TNR does work…
This is another tidbit of exotic Americana; the world of private zoos, exotic cats and…
This is an interesting and perhaps a landmark legal case regarding writing posts on Facebook…
