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
I sit beneath the bushes as she fills my dish each day,
I only venture out to eat when she has gone away.
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.
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.
I’d like to have her stroke me and pat my weary head,
But fear will overcome and I’ll run and hide instead.
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.
