PHOTO HUNT: SIX


Today's Photo Hunt is "Six" and seemed the appropriate time to reintroduce our feral family of "six"... center in the photo is PK (originally known as Porch Kitty) and her little PKs... a Parade of Kits, all five of them.  As I was doing this post, the "parade" marched by my window, coming from the back yard to the front porch for their evening supper.  Their home appears to be in the woods of our backyard.  Daytime they are often playing all 'round the barbecue, so we now keep a water dish out there for them.  One evening recently I removed the screen from the bedroom window so I could stick the camera out and get a few photos of them.  Though the parade winds up on the front porch early a.m., and each evening around dusk, no photos are allowed... all are too shy, too skittish to allow us near.

  1. It's too bad they're so shy. If only they realized you meant only good for them.

  2. An adorable little bunch! And they seem quite content to be fringe dwellers of life!

  3. We're so glad you're feeding them! Even better would be to trap them, but that can be so difficult if the mom is very wily. If there's a TNR group in your area, maybe they could come in and try?

  23. Oh, they are all so cute. I have tried to tame ferals too and one thing that helped was to move the feeding dishes closer to the house little by little. They ended up at my back door and got used to seeing me and eventually I could touch them. Only me though. Good luck and it is wonderful that you are caring for them. Hugs, Deb =^..^=x5
