"Here are three of us again!"
"Hi! I'm Simba! I'm named after Lucky Boo's friend Simba!"
"Simba eating his/her food!"
"I'm Flor because I'm pretty like a flower (Flor is Spanish for Flower)! I'm a boy, but when the lady named me she thought I was a girl. I'm the one that bit her and scratched her all up and caused her to have to get rabies shots."
"I don't have a name yet, but I sure am purrty!"
"My name is Cassandra, but the lady that feeds me isn't sure that I'm a girl. She just says I look like a Cassandra to her. With her luck, it will be discovered that I'm actually a guy, just like with Flor."
"I don't think I want to be near the camera! I'll sneak away now."
"Hi! Flor again!"
"No-Name sits waiting patiently for food." [See My CatsterPlus Photo Book]

Our favorite thing to do is EAT! We just love food!
We like to play with leaves and pinestraw!
Favorite Nap Spot:
We like to sleep in shady areas.
We like any kind of cat food!
We are very fast and we are good at staying hidden.
I am a college student and live in a one-bedroom apartment that is part of a really old, really big house. These cats are part of a feral colony living under the house! There are at least 11 of them; I have only been able to get pictures of four though. Three have let me touch them (Simba, Flor, and Cassandra), although it has been quite warily. While they were eating, I scratched their heads as long as they would allow me to, which was not long. That is after months upon months of feeding them. They are absolutely feral cats.
For now, I am just feeding these beauties and making sure they have clean water to drink. I'd like to TNR them, but I just don't have any extra money for that. But I do feel good about feeding them; they have gained weight and are becoming a little tolerant of my presence. Even though these kitties aren't mine, I love them and feel that they are part of my family.
A week before finals, I did something really stupid: I picked up Flor, one of the ferals. He bit and scratched me pretty badly. My hand became infected within hours where the worst bite wounds were, and I spent much of the next day at the health center on campus and at the hospital. I ended up having to get 10 shots in a little under a month, 7 of which were very expensive Rabies shots. I don't blame the incident on Flor; it was completely my fault. I do not recommend attempting to pick up a feral cat with one's bare hands, no matter how cute and cuddly the cat or kitten looks.
