When?

By chalkhillblue
This is one of two feral kittens who, under guidance from the Cats Protection league who rescued the mother and two other kittens, were rescued by friends of mine, this little chap would sit on a chair by the patio doors gazing out into the garden wondering when he could rejoin the great outdoors, after a few weeks of acclimatisation his wish came true, both kittens prospered and are now fine big friendly cats.
125th sec @f/2.8, 102mm, ISO 200, exp. bias -0.67, aperture priority, hand held.
Thank you very much to all who voted and commented on my Robin image.

Beautiful kitten & lovely light. I take care of feral cats here in Texas too after a neighbor abandoned them all. It was bad for a while, kittens running everywhere & some dying. An organization called FCats stepped in & neutered/spayed all the adults & found the kittens homes. Now, slowly they are taking a couple of cats a month to barn homes. Bless you for a big heart!
