Seven Days of Ferals


Lately, I have been taking pictures of the feral cats at work almost every morning when I feed them. Of course, this isn’t everyday because I work four days a week, sometimes five. Also, there are not always cats around when I put food out, but I wanted to share with you some of the pictures I have taken recently.

Wednesday, March 2, 2016 – These two usually hang out together but not always.

Thursday, March 3 – I often see this one waiting under the palm tree when I arrive at work.

Monday, March 7 – The cat to the far left of the picture below is the shyest of the three and is difficult to photograph because he is usually, but not always, too far away.

This one is the easiest to photograph.

Tuesday, March 8 – There seems to be a territorial dispute here even though I put down two piles of food.

Wednesday, March 9 – Everyone was around for their picture that day. I especially like the photo of the gold cat.

Thursday, March 10 – The bulls-eye tabby sometimes is waiting along the fence about 100 feet away when I arrive while the gold cat is waiting closer. After I go inside to get their food, she moves in closer.

Friday, March 11 – I put food down and then stayed where I was and called this cat to come to me. I could tell part of him wanted to but he wasn’t quite ready for that so I backed away.

Well, that is how my morning at work starts. What do you think?

      They are better off outside. They are not accustomed to humans and would probably never get adopted and then be stuck their whole lives in tiny cages or euthanized.

    In which country are these cats living? I always feed cats in Greece, where nobody cares for them and I pity them a lot, as I love cats so much. I wish the people would be nicer to animals there.

      I’m glad you are there to help. I work in Tampa, Florida, United States. That is where these cats live. Some people here are mean to stray cats but I think most people care about them, although most people also do nothing when they see stray cats. They assume someone else is helping them perhaps.

        I am really astonished that you have stray cats in America. We here in Germany don’t really have stray cats, fortunately and if, they come to an animal shelter and then they are placed to somebody who loves cats and cares for them. In Greece it’s really heartbraking because many of them are sick, have cat flu etc. and are not fed well only live from garbage containers. It always breaks my heart because I love cats. I’m glad you take care, Charles.

          Thank you. We certainty have our fair share of problems here in America but there are a lot of Good, compassionate people who are willing to help. I would love to visit Deutschland. We plan on going almost every year but something always happens to prevent it. Where do you live?

            I’m living in Hamburg in Northern Germany (2 million inhabitants). It’s the most beautiful town in Germany (in a research “where do you want to live in Germany” Hamburg got No. 1) and has a huge interesting port. In my blog you can also see some photos from Hamburg and from cats and dogs in Greece.

              I saw pictures of Hamburg, it looks like a beautiful place to visit. I don’t know where we will go when we visit Germany but I do know that my wife wants to see castles.

      That would be nice but I don’t feel too bad for them. They have each other, they live in Florida and I don’t think I’m the only one giving them food.

    We have ferals that walk through our yard; the neighbor lady feeds them. Ferals always have that angry/hurt look in their eyes. It always makes me sad to see them.

    We think your day starts purrfectly, and we know those ferals think the same way. Does someone else look out for and feed them on the days you do not work? XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    I always feed cats when I’m in Greece, I feel so sorry for them because nobody cares for them. Thanks for visiting my blog. Unfortunately couldn’t find your old doors.
