My Feral Babies
I have a feral colony of cats that my husband and I have been caring for, for 2 years. It started with a litter of 4 kittens, about 6 months old.
The group has grown to 15. We live next to a community college where we believe many of them were dumped.This year we had 11 kittens. Only 2 survived. We are not sure what happened to them, except for one that we lost to a URI that was discovered too late.
Every one of them has a name. Every one of them is loved. A a few of them are semi-feral. They love me and love to be petted, but only by me.
The rest show their appreciation by bringing me gifts and doing flip flops, about 5 feet away from me!
It gets really expensive to care for them. I'm lucky that the restaurant I work at gives me a LOT of scrap meat to feed them with.
It's not an ideal diet, but they have full bellies. We are currently working with a small TNR group that is going to help us get them "fixed" at little cost to us.
We really love these guys and we wouldn't change a thing!!
