One of my little feral cats, Timmy, has finally decided I'm not going to harm him. He greets me at the door of the cat room every day and sniffs my hand, then turns around so I can stroke his tail. He doesn't stay with me very long, but I think that's the best he can do for now. When rescued, he and his two sisters had been orphaned and had begun hiding behind the shrubs in my front yard. I feel for this little band of feral kitties. I'm sure they don't realize what a rough life they had before I trapped them and brought them inside the house. They do seem happy and content even though they don't want to be held and the girls don't want to be petted. I'm hoping Timmy will be the example to them and one day I'll be able to stroke their tails too. I can't always have things the way I want them, but I accept the feral cats as they are. They're doing the best they can.

Timmy has a loveable face. Hopefully he get more and more trusting.

He is beautiful. In time they will come around. Most of my older cats were feral and it took time but they are babes in arm now. I also just took in a litter of four a few weeks ago and all but one are letting me pet them. Thank you for loving them and saving their lives.

You are such a blessing to these sweet little creatures. They all know they can depend on you and when old man winter rears his head, they will understand even better. It will happen and you will smile at how it all happened. Thank you for being the person you are.
