This past summer (2008) a beautiful feral mother cat wandered up to the house bringing her tiny feral kittens with her. Once she saw that I was taking care of them she wandered off one night never to be seen again, which was a sad day for me. With the help of a local feline group, I got the little ones spayed and neutered. Even though they only allow me to pet them at certain moments, they love me and I love them. They make me smile everytime I go out to feed them. I cry "Where are my babies?" and they come running from wherever they have decided to play that day. Feral cats are just as important as non-feral...the proof is in the picture.
