In my neighborhood there are 3 stray kittens who make a pretty decent living from my neighbors. I have thought of trapping them to take to our local no-kill shelter, but it would cost $45. Plus cats are fast, smart, and all scratchy-bitey.

So today everytime I knocked the can around (no video of that because I forgot my stand) she would come out and inspect the "cat toy". It was drizzling rain while I collected my ammo. And she just made herself at home. I did go in and make a temporary rain shelter in the woods completw with boiled chicken bits and kibble. All 3 are in it bit it was too dark and rainy for a pic.

Apologies, the video is very shaky.

For several months now I have feeding a feral. It has a bum hind leg. I don't know if is a birth defect or it is the result of being hit by a car and surviving to tell the tale. I have named him (I hope, him ) Cassidy as in Hop-along . He has learned to come to eat when I whistle. Last winter I made him a lil' house for the worst days. So, I am right out there with Ya' Guy.

That sounds like Ralph! He was a homeless kitty that lived outside. One day he just limped on in and jumped right on the couch. Hasn't left my wife or my side since.

Well , the food I put out late last night is gone... but tge shelter is empty. Tarp like made too much noise.

Cats are so aloof and independent that when they choose youbto be their friend and trust you... it makea you feel like a special kind of human.

Cassidy sounds awesome. And Ralph sounds like a rare cat indeed.
I will eventually earn the privilege of touching these kittens and find them a home. Our shelter has a few vet clinicians that spade and nueter and vacinated... prior to adopting. That Bob Barker sure made an impresaiin on me. My original county has no animal shelter and a huge over population of cats and dogs.
