On The QT: Found Feral Colony

Last Friday, I left the office early, which meant I was actually driving in daylight!  As I navigated my usual route, I noticed stuff in the brush, in the middle of an industrial area.  Garbage?  Homeless folks?  Nope, it's a feral cat colony!  Those boxes are shelters, and I've been driving past for over four years without noticing.  When the leaves are out, no one can see this, unless specifically looking.  The average person has NO IDEA, and that's exactly what feral cat colony caretakers want: invisibility. 



I hope to witness the caretakers there someday, and offer financial or food donations.  After all, I have my own feral cat colony, which is hidden in plain sight on our back deck.  We painted The Cat Hotel and Mama's House in the same grey paint that our house is painted with; blending in is the key.

Gotta say, this colony is blended in very well.  Anyone who cares for the community cats away from their home gets a big HURRAH from me!

We love humans who take care of wild homeless kitties. Everyone, human or animal, deserves the basics of food, water and shelter.

How exciting! Most people would never even know what this is. We hope you get to meet the caregivers too and maybe lend a hand.

Those are really good people . Unfortunately the invisibility cloak is essential.

You know I just found out that there is also a feral cat colony only a few blocks away! Amazing -- though i think it's a good thing I didn't know or i might have way too many kitties!

It's a little sad feral caregivers have to be so secretive, but they did a good job
