My brother has three cats taking up residence outside his house. One is a feral Momma, the other two are her kittens. My brother and sister-in-law have been leaving food out for them and they say they are there each morning at 5:00 a.m. Chow’s on!
Today, she put out a dish while we were there and the Mommy and the braver of babies made their way up the steps to eat. I had to take this photo from the porch window because if we opened the door it would have spooked them. They sit and watch and wait to see if it is safe to approach, to eat. They are curious and one of the kitties seems more at ease with human contact. My brother captured them once to get them assessed by a vet. He needs to get the two male kitties neutered. They have three indoor kitties already. These three will remain outdoor cats. It seems to be what they want.
