Siwsan

A beautiful new Feral has started showing up. It's VERY shy but I finally got a picture. [View all]

At first it would take off the instant I was spotted. Slowly but surely it is getting more comfortable. In the picture, this gorgeous creature is sitting right in front of the little shelter I put together for Carys and her siblings. What you don't see are 2 or 3 of the ferals curled up on the straw bed.

I took this through the living room window and had to zoom in with my not so spectacular camera on my phone. That excuse out of the way, I think it almost looks like a water color painting. I might print it out and frame it.
