I haven't seen Tiger or any of the other ferals in months now.

I am so worried about them all. I haven't see any of them in a few months now. I don't know what's happened to them. One problem could be that I don't feed them anymore, but given that there are other creatures around that would destroy the yard, it hasn't made much sense to do so. My biggest fear is that the coyotes have gotten to them all. The river isn't far from our place, and the cats were living outside a house that was just a block away from the river. The house has been sold though, so I don't know where they'd be going if they haven't come by my place. I might put some food out again to see if they come by, but I need to make sure that the wild animals don't get at it. I don't know what I'm going to do if the coyotes have gotten at them. It's not a good way for them to go.

That's the danger to feral cats, that other things happen to them. I can understand you are worried about them, but there is only so much you can do for a feral.

The problem is that I get too attached to them, even if they're not my pets. It's hard to deal with it though.

I do know what you mean. "Brother" who was a cat we think might have been Taj's brother, was over at the Wendy's for many years - like 7, and that's a long time for a feral cat. He probably lived that long because we fixed him when he was 6 months old. I think he's gone now, but 7 is very old for a feral.

Hmm... Growing up I watched our female cat rip a strip off the local German Shepherd. It wasn't a very fair fight. I imagine a hungry Coyote might risk it but I'm not sure. Really not sure what happened to your kitty friends. I can't say it looks too good though.

I can understand you. My cat disappeared and I don't know what happened to him. Maybe a fox ate him or maybe he just decided to move to another place. Cats actually move if they find someone who feeds them. They are kind of survivors. I guess there is not much we can do - the cat won't come and tell us if they live somewhere else. You could try and put some food on a place where they cats used to eat earlier and see if you see them coming back. It would be nice to know if they are still around..

I know what you mean, it just breaks your heart. I would feel that way too.

hi kris i can understand that. I live in a retirement center that backs up to a large Vietnamese store. i can look out my window and see has many as six or eight feral cats of all sizes and colors,. also some are purebred,.Here in Southern California some people just are so cruel. they have a cat and decide they do not want it.so instead of finding a good home for the cat they dump it behind this grocery store.well some of the meat cutters feel bad for the cats so they come out and feed them meat scraps. I do wish some organization could come and save these precious little cats.some are as I said pure bred. someone who dumps these cats has to be the most c ruel thoughtless people alive
