Over the past year, I've been writing blogs about feral and stray cats. We have three rescued inside cats. The third, our 18 month old baby Zoie, we found in our back yard in a bush! Since I thought her mother might be out there somewhere--we have a farm to the rear of our property--we left food out last winter. Come June, a yellow tabby Lancelot adopted us and his saga is in one of the blogs listed below. Over the summer two other cats fed regularly with us. This winter we have four or five who come to the feeder. Only one will arrive when we are outside and he'll sometimes rub against our legs. These four don't intend to stick around. They don't need us like Lance did. Come spring and summer we might be able to build more trust when we're outside on the patio more often. Until then, we keep the feeder full, provide shelters--two with heat pads, and hope for the best for all of them.
I hope these blogs are useful to you.
