Goodbye My Ferals

I am starting a new job on Tuesday so Friday was the last time I will see my feral cats at work. The week and a half after I gave my notice I saw very little of them. Sometimes I would put food out at 8 a.m. and it would still be there at noon. Other times it would be gone but I couldn’t be sure the birds weren’t eating it. I was actually glad about that because it meant that the cats didn’t need me and I could stop worrying about not being there for them.

Then the shy one showed up on Tuesday morning.

I was off on Wednesday and the gold and white cat was there Thursday morning, waiting in the parking lot for me.

On my last day both the gold and white cat and the grey and white were there waiting.

I’ll leave you with more recent pictures since I won’t be taking any more. So sad.

      Thanks. I think they might be getting fed elsewhere. They are all ear-tipped so someone has looked out for them in the past and my still be doing it.

    We hope you are right that they are being fed elsewhere. If they aren’t currently, we sure hope they’ll find a colony to join so they won’t go hungry. Good luck with your new job, and good luck to the kitties. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    Awww! Pretty kitties! So sweet that they came to say goodbye. They will be fine, hopefully someone else will feed them.

    Don’t feel bad….you did so much for them….they will find another kind person to help them when they need it. They look good – I’m glad you got to say goodbye to them!

    You really have a difficult situation. The cats seem to be in good condition, not starving. I am sure somebody else is also feedind them. I know the feeling, we have kept a feeding station for three regular visitors. Now we are planning to move and I am very worried about these cats.

    Fingers crossed for them. I know how you feel. They really are adorable.

    When I go for walks in my neighborhood I make sure to carry canned food with me. Then I don’t have to go scrambling last minute to see where I can buy cat food for a stray.

    Congrats for the new gig!
