Some people ask how I can get so attached to a cat I have never pet. They say, "They are just stray cats." I beg to differ. They are NOT just stray cats. They are the result of irresponsible pet owners. Humans that choose to not spay and neuter their pets. Humans that choose to let their cats roam and reproduce. Humans that think of our society as a throw away society. Humans that move and leave their cats to fend for themselves. It is a sad reality. But, it is reality. Until humans can accept responsibility for their pets, their will always be the homeless strays, and feral cats.
I long for the day that I can pet these beautiful souls. I know that will never happen with these four. All I can provide is shelter, food, a safe yard to play and sleep in, and my unconditional love.
Every night I sit outside and just watch how they interact with each other, how they communicate. I know they are thankful for what I can provide for them, although I will always feel it isn't enough, they are feral, this is their life.
