Eyes of the Tiger.

By DeSilver
This cat came into my life about two years ago. He's a Ferrell cat who was brought to our garden as I say two years ago by his mother. She brought him to our garden about six or seven times in a two week period. It was if she was trying to familiarize him with humans to give him a better chance to survive. After the two weeks he would come by himself and she was never seen again.
It did take him several weeks for him to trust us, but in the end he would.
Unfortunately we moved out of the house but the person moving in was a relative of ours who promised to look after him. (It would have been unfair on him to try and take him with us)
This they did and he is now doing very well. We went back to the house the other day on a visit to see our relatives and walking across the top of the garden. We shouted him and he came running down the garden to us, he did seem pleased to see us.
Thank you for looking at my picture and taking the time to read this little story.
David.

A beautiful story, David with a happy ending.Smile
His mother obviously knew what she was doing.
A fine looking cat, it's reckoned that gingers are to the most friendly of all as well.
You need one at your new address!
A home without a cat is just a house, 'tis saidSmile
