Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty.....WILD Kitty!



While watching for fawns near an old abandoned barn I noticed a kitten playing about some weather beaten holes in the siding.  Apparently a feral cat has taken up residence in the old barn, at least for long enough to raise a litter of kittens.


These cute little Tabbies are a domestic breed of cat but their mother is raising them up wild with no help of humans.  Cute as they are I do wonder how many songbirds it is taking to support this litter of free-ranging felines.

and the unfortunate thing is that they will continue to breed in the wild. Cats and foxes have decimated the ground nesting bird population in Australia. Even if you could catch those cute kitties, have them de-sexed and bring them up like household pets, they never really become tame.

They are cute,but I am pretty sure they will not always stick to a diet of mice.

They sure are cute, but feral as well as domestic cats, take a heavy toll on songbirds every year.
