Feral

By abeeror2
This is a young Feral cat living in our wood heap. It had been killing our young chickens. Hunger drove it to do what comes naturally. Evading a trap I decided to feed it. So far so good. I returned to my kitchen after taking this shot and was surprised the cat was still staring at me in this way.
Scary bugger drove me to have a beer.SmileSmileSmileSmileTongue

Keep feeding her an she might surprise you one day. When an ex-feral/stray sits on your lap for the first time is always a great moment, although sometimes it takes a long time and a lot of food!

We 'have' a feral cat which adopted us.
Self sufficient but comes to be patched up after wear and tear.
Currently has a strained muscle on a front leg.

Good shot of this good looking cat.

Keep feeding him up then, when the BBQ season starts, I suggest sprinkled with Thyme accompanied by assorted roasted vegetables and some new potatoes. Yum! Smile

Ps Your trademark with the eyes again, nice one!
It looks like you have a pending pet, Kathryn. More photos of him to come?

Great cat shot, don't go too close yet, though.
Hope this story has a happy ending.
