Ferals at Work Update

I am still putting food out for the ferals that hang around my place of employment but for a stretch of a couple of weeks I saw them very rarely. The food was always gone when I checked later in the day so I assumed they were just showing up later than usual. That surprised me because there is a school behind my work and activity increases exponentially after I get there.

One day I saw several birds interested in the food.


I worried that maybe the birds were eating it but I never saw the birds after that so I think that wasn’t normal.

Fortunately, I started seeing more of the feral cats again about two weeks ago. Some days I see only one and not always the same one but other days I see all three like this morning and when I took this video.


This fellow usually shows up independent of the other cats. Not sure if he is in the same colony or an outsider.

Today was a good day because the ginger and white cat was waiting for me when I got there this morning and the bullseye tabby showed up as soon as I brought the food out. Normally she (or he) is pretty shy but I think she is getting used to me.

There is one more cat, a white and black cat that I have not seen for a long time. I hope that one is okay.

    I am glad you are feeding them. My heart breaks for all ferals and strays, I wish they could all have forever homes.

    Great, they are always hungry. We are feedind two cats, they are used to come to stare the kichen window, and when my husband goes out with food, cats disappear and when he is in cats are already eating. Some birds also come to eat cat food.

    I loved this – Spence and I have been caring for a colony of feral cats for many years including providing little shelters. A few will let us pet them and the others will come close. They’ve really come to count on us.

      That is very nice of you. We tried making a shelter for a stray cat once when it got pretty cold here but he didn’t want to use it, so we adapted him instead. 🙂
