My husband and I lost our cat about three years ago and haven't been home enough to take care of a new cat. Since we moved to a new location that has loads of feral cats we adopted them all!

We live by the boat docks and we feed them every day. They're the most wonderful and caring animals in the world.

You can tell when animals appreciate what you do for them, and these 20 or so cats are just great!

Its a shame we can't take them all in but we love being able to keep the colony that we have up to date.

The county allows us to take them in for shots for free or low cost so it makes it easy to keep them safe.

We only hope that love them or hate them, they treat them with respect.

I agree with Ruth and Maggie

The feral condition is caused by humans.

You are so caring looking after all those poor strays. Its such a shame because I'm sure that each one of them would love a fire to lie in front of or a lap to curl up on.

Humans domesticated cats in the first place and now some people think its ok to just kick them to the kerb or worse.

Wow Anna, you're a wonderful person for looking after such a number of cats! A lot of people think that feral cats don't need anyone to look out for them, but they do, the reason that they are feral is because they were neglected in the first place, every cat needs someone to love and look after them!

How kind you are looking after all those feral cats. It's terrble the way some people chase them away or let them starve.
It's not the cats faults someone abandoned them in the first place and they bred and turned into a colony.
I wish there were more people were like you.

Well done Anna. We at PoC welcome cat lovers..:). We respect the cat and all animals. We don't think of ourselves as necessarily superior!

I am happy for the feral cats of long beach that you look after. It makes me feel good that there are some contented feral cats out there.

Hi, I am 70-years-of-age at 2019. For 14 years before I retired at 57, I worked as a solicitor in general law specialising in family law. Before that I worked in a number of different jobs including professional photography. I have a longstanding girlfriend, Michelle. We like to walk in Richmond Park which is near my home because I love nature and the landscape (as well as cats and all animals).
