Feral Peril

So here they are down between the fence and the neighbours' shed.....



This is my favourite. We haven't caught him/her yet.



And this is Boo, the first boy.



And this is Jem. He was going to be Mayella until we realised he was a boy.


The fluffy grey one is Scout and the other grey and white one is Atticus. Yes, the BA has been reading 'To Kill A Mockingbird'.

And no, we're not keeping them all. We just felt like giving them names.....

I love the Mockingbird names....and I really think you should keep Scout. You've got to keep at least one!

They are cute! We have feral cats on our property too. We will find them sitting on our window sills. V has given them princess names like Snow White for the all white one.

How cute are those little faces? The fluffy grey one would be my favorite too - hope you catch him/her. Feral kittens - good times!

Of course you're the better sailor - so glad Himself told you so!

Oh they are SO CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Man oh man!!!!!! If they didn't grow up to be teenagers, I would want like 12 of them.

Oh no wait...that's babies that grow up to be teenagers. Hang on...Ok, if they didn't grow up to be CATS, I'd want like 12 of them!

Can't wait to have some time to catch up reading all of your recent posts...but I just HAD to say how precious each cat is. I could not give them away. I hope you are able to find good loving homes for all of them. Like JoLyn, I love the Mockingbird names...not ironic in the least that cats kill Mockingbirds....That was one of my favorite novels when I was BA's age. Hope things are going well for all. I will catch up soon!

Growing up on a farm we've had our fair share of feral cats. Hope you get them all nice and tamed so they can enter your family nicely. ;) You've named them...they are yours now!
