I'd Think Very Hard About This!

This is the feral cat that I have been feeding for the past year and a half last night after he ate his dinner.  Looks like he's got his eye on those Mallards and is still hungry, doesn't it?  He's a pretty thing, but wild as wild can be.  He won't show his face, if I'm out in the yard.

The look of optimism. It would be a pretty lame duck for it to catch

thank you for taking care of her (?)

He's dreaming of slaying a feathered dragon!

Now that is the true meaning of being a 'sitting duck'. Yep I agree someone is looking for another meal!!!

You get some of the best photos from your window!!!

18 working days remaining.....and tomorrow is one of 2 vacation days I have to take in March or they are lost forever. I don't waste vacation days. LOL

He's dreaming about a great catch, but his tummy is full, so that's all he'll do.--Inger

I'm not sure he's a match for the duck. Boom & Gary of THe Vermilon River, Canada.

Thank you for being the cat's caregiver!!! Have you had a chance to trap/neuter/return? For info on that go to alleycatallies.com (or something like that). They are THE experts on promoting the welfare of feral cats everywhere. I have two of my own in the barn and borrowed a humane trap from our vet, trapped them and then found a clinic that offers a free spay or neuter for ferals. THEY have a right to live out their lives too, but just shouldn't reproduce (as the next generation starts the explosion and might not find a kind person to care for them).

This cat if from a large feral colony down by the bay. That colony is well looked after by the local feral cat organization. This guy has a notched ear, which means that he's (or she's) already been captured and neutered.

Not a sign of our feral cat that we had...There's always a meal if it comes back! I'm glad yours has made it through the hardest part of the winter, which is because of your being kind and remembering 'him.'

You are a good soul, Louise.

I think he is watching the ducks and thinking that he must be in 'cat heaven'.....everyone gets fed around here. Lucky critters!

We used to have a cat that stalked cows -- talk about delusions of grandeur!

I feel so sad for feral cats -- living on the outside looking in ... wishing and hoping they could be part of a family but alas ...

Do you have a name for him/her?

I hope that the ducks keep their heads out of the sand! That's an optimistic cat.

we have a feral cat around the field...he's a right hard bugger too!

Great pictures, Louise! The ducks seem to be either oblivious of him, or don't care?! We had a feral cat, that I fed too, in QC. When I looked at McDuff, I felt so bad for the other one, outside in the cold having to fend for himself. But as soon as I opened the door, he was gone.

We have been feeding 3 feral cats and you are correct they are as wild as can be, cannot get anywhere near them.
