Our Feral Cat

We have been feeding a black feral cat for several days.  The cat comes around at least twice a day and eats every morsel that we place in the dish.  Until today I haven’t been able to get good pictures of the cat.  Whenever it sees me, it runs and hides.  I figured out a way to outsmart the cat.  I captured the photographs shared in this blog post from the comfort of my living room, via the Remote Control feature of the Olympus Image Share App.  I am very pleased with the experience!

THOUGHTS OF A FERAL
by Annette Easdon

_LG17104 4x6
I sit beneath the bushes as she fills my dish each day,
I only venture out to eat when she has gone away.

_LG17108 4x6
I know it will upset her when I turn away and hide,
As every day she tries her best to get me by her side.

_LG17112 4x6
I wish that I could let her know that I don’t want to run,
And hope that she will understand it’s nothing that SHE’s done.

_LG17118 4x6
I’d like to have her stroke me and pat my weary head,
But fear will overcome and I’ll run and hide instead.

_LG17119 4x6
For all the kindly people who feed the strays each day,
I pray the Lord will care for them as they have cared for me.

    Your cat looks very much like the one we call Blackie who we feed twice a day also. I think ours is a male, not sure but we refer to him as him anyway. We have taken our time to creep up slowly, always speaking softly and never scare him in any way and after a couple years he is still a wildcat. He can count on us to feed and water him daily, with a better quality dry food than any of our other house cats ever got. His food and water is always placed in the same spot and we’ve made several safe warm places where he can sleep comfortably. I googled and read that if a feral cat becomes over a year old without human contact he never will become tame. We are still hopeful though. This summer he went through a bad time, lost weight and his shiny coat became dull. We were unable to help him in any way but he revived somehow and is once again big and buff and shiny. He has become demanding enough that he scratches on the screen door if we are 2 mins late with his dinner. When we go away we hire a neighbour kid to put out fresh water and food. We refer to him as “our cat” but he has his own rules and has never let us touch him even once!

    What a beautiful cat. We found a litter of kittens when my grand daughter lived with us. We raised them until we were able to adopt out all but one. My grand daughter still has her , she is getting very old but still loves to be petted.
