27. I love all my kitties very much. They do tend to work their way into your heart...

The issue here is raccoons and other nocturnal wildlife. I am not even remotely a morning person; I'm usually up very late at night. I put kibble out around 3-4 pm when I'm heading into my office. The other feral cat I fed for years used to show up around 7-8 p.m. and then the raccoons would start foraging later, so my feral at the time usually got a good meal.

The one I'm leaving food out for now is like a shadow - I don't even know if s/he is getting the food I leave out but at least the opportunity is there. I saw him/her a few nights ago on our porch, staring in the window at one of our cats - I put food out immediately as soon as I saw this cat, but s/he took off like a shot, and never returned for the food - it was still there 12 hours later. So, this cat is VERY feral -- like I said, I just hope he or she has found the kibble stash I put out in the woods - probably somewhere s/he feels safer eating because humans are obviously very scary to this cat ...

Sweet kitties. They're wonderful companions. Thanks for caring so much, Samantha.
