Feral cat update

Some of you may remember that we spayed and feed a feral cat I've named Bella. This winter, I've noticed another cat coming regularly for the food too, and "he" (I don't know his sex) is even more wary than Bella. I've named him Barney, and was able to get one photo recently of him heading toward the feeding station.


Once the snow is gone, I hope to trap and get him spayed/neutered. He does not have an ear tip or collar. I've been checking craigslist for missing cats, and nothing matches this cat. At least he knows we have a safe haven for him to eat and rest.

Rene, he's lucky to have you looking out for him and to provide food, as you are doing for Bella. We'll send purrs that you'll be able to trap him and have him neutered.

*Thank you* for caring.

Poor little guy. He's so lucky to have found you! Fingers crossed that you'll be able to catch him and have him neutered.

Sad that you have another wanderer; but so nice that you have a haven for them.

good luck with trapping. We had a feral who lived on our porch for 7 years and now is a lap cat! Come see our exclusive Q & A with Tamar of I Have Cat and her cat pics from Africa.

Purrrrring for you, for tending to Bella & Barney. We're all adopted strays, so we know how rough things can be out fending for yourself.

Barney is very lucky to have you taking care of him. We hope you can easily trap him.

Hopefully Barney is neutered and has a home and is just stopping by for a snack..

You are so sweet to feed him and watch out for him.

Two kitties on the porch couch

Ringo and Lucy both love to sneak out on the porch anytime they can (with sneak meaning that Jim opens the door for them).
