Mancat Monday: A Visit With the Ferals

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Hello gang!  We sure had a busy weekend but we managed to get plenty of Easy in yesterday.  Several of you asked about our ferals so I thought we would show you some pictures today.  I know Marg will enjoy the pics, she just loves her ferals!  The pictures are taken at a distance, through a sliding glass door with a telephoto lens since there is no getting close to them.

The first two pictures are the Momma Black Kitty drinking out of our bird bath and you can see Momma Tabby in the background.

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!In this next picture you will see three of them.  A little black one is up in the tree on the left and if you look closely you can see a little furry tail hanging down.  That is Momma Tabby and her little kitten is the one that was killed in our yard.  Up in the top right is one of the Tortie kittens.

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Here is one of the Tortie kittens laying in the yard waiting for a pounce from the black kitten that was up in the tree.

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!And ready, set, go…here comes the pounce from the black kitten….

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!And finally, here is Momma Black Kitty up on our deck checking to see if the food human is home.  We all often lay by our sliding glass door and watch her and the others.

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!I hope you enjoyed meeting some of our ferals.  We feed them and make sure they have fresh water, but there is no getting close to them and they won’t go near anything that looks like a trap…even the kittens.

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Great pictures, thank you and thank you again. Glad you took some pictures of them. Have you tried to just leave a carriers out there where you feed them or is it someone else’s property?? That is intertesting that they come up to the house. So they are getting a little used to you. It took me two years to catch our Momma kitty here but I did it. I almost fainted the day that I got her. Poor thing, she went through a lot but she is just fine now.
Thanks again for the pictures.

I think feral cats are both lucky to have so many kind humans who are willing to feed them and I also think feral cats are in danger of getting attacked by prey. In some ways I wish my cats were indoor/outdoor cats so they could roam as they please but I would be afraid they would be harmed or never return home.

That’s so wonderful you are looking after the kitties. You have a big heart. They look very comfortable in your backyard.

The feral kitties look lovely. They were very wise to come to you where they are kept well fed. We are grateful to you and all the others like you who take care of so many feral kitties.

Awesome photos! Thank you, those would not have been easy to take, I’m sure. My favorite is the tail hanging out of the tree! lol Take care, ferals! (And happy Monday, Brian)

Never say never about traps. Domino eluded traps for years. Does anyone in your area do TNR with a drop trap? I’m happy to advise what finally worked for us.

Those are very healthy and happy looking ferals! We sure hope they’ll learn to trust your Dad one day so they can be neutered and live life without worrying about fighting or getting pregnant.
Thank you so much for looking after the ferals!

We are so happy they are being cared for, and cared about.

thank you for the pics, your garden looks nice and the Ferals look as though they are well fed and happy, what a shame youve had no luck catching the momma cats because no more kittens would be so good for them.

Thank you so much for taking care of the ferals! We’ve had three feral brothers but only Maxx is left (and we think he’s just crabby because he wasn’t 100% feral). Great photos! Here’s to earning even more of their respect and trust!

I’m glad you kitties let the feral kitties hang out in the yard and don’t get upset with them! I guess you realize they need your human’s support.

Mom Julie met some ferals on her trip south and at first, was disappointed she couldn’t cuddle them (she missed us terribly, I think), but then realized keeping their distance from humans was a way to keep them safe, too. Not everyone can be trusted 🙁

Have a good week! We enjoyed meeting your little friends.

I LOVED seeing them. I wonder how the Tortie got into that little group? Meaning she isn’t a relative I guess. Bless them and you.

we enjoyed them a lot. we have our own community of ferals or stray cats (mama doesn’t know the diff) that the whole community of humans living in the area feed and support including our family.

Those ferals sure are beautiful, Brian. Thanks to you and your family for caring for them. They sure are lucky to be your friends.

Once again you are so kind to look out, as best you can, for these feral kitties. I’m sure they’re happy enough living outdoors in the summer as long as they have plenty of free food, but I worry for them when colder weather comes.

It’s very interesting to see them going about their daily business — and wonderful that you can get some shots up close and PURRsonal (without touching).

Callie (a.k.a. Trouble)

I am sure they know how lucky they are to have you take care of them!

It is so sweet and thoughtful of you to share with your ferals.
They look so happy and very content.
