About 3 yrs ago we had 4 feral cats in our back yard (momma & 3 babies). Momma cat was a 2nd generation stray and already didn't like people. The kittens wouldn't let me within 30 ft. All 4 of them have tiger stripes. After the first summer we didn't see them any more. I figured they had probably gotten killed or caught. The next summer we started seeing one of the cats here and there. I started putting out table scraps now and then and a second smaller cat started showing up. Those 2 would come back now & then sometimes alone, sometimes together. This fall and winter I have been putting out a lot more scraps because I was seeing them more often and figured they were hungry. I also started putting out cat food every couple of days. I had put out a lot of ham with the hambone on Chrstmas eve and it was gone by morning! Bone and all! Christmas day, while I was sitting watching my son open his gifts and watching tv, one of the cats plopped himself on the deck bench watching the house. Late in the day I noticed the second cat had come but it looked like they were yelling at each other. I slid open the window a little and told them they had to be nice to each other. About a half hour later my husband noticed there were 3 cats out there! I went to the bathroom window to get a better look and found the 4th cat walking away from the window! That sure explained the gobbled up food! This picture is the 4 of them watching my husband outside about 15-20 ft away. Two of them even moved closer to where he was sitting (on the swingset in the picture). I wish I could get close enough to catch them. One of the smaller ones will let me get as close as 6 ft. Looking through the window they will get as close as a couple of ft. We think the cat down below the steps (you only see the head) is the momma. The single cat picture is momma cat. The other picture is a closeup of two of them.
Sorry about the long post. I was just so happy to see all 4 kitties, I had to tell someone!

Donna, that is neat that they come up to your porch. Hopefully they will come to you if you want to keep them. Ours was a stray and dh opened the door for him one day (after we had been feeding him) he came in and has been with us since.

Karen - your cat is so much like ours in that he is black and white and loves to lay like that too.

A friend of my husband had given us a kitten about 5 years ago. He said it was a male- but about 2 years after that "HE" had 5 kittens...LOL! Then recently he said that someone had a kitten to give to a good home- a male...We teased him about the last male he gave us! All of the kitty pictures are so sweet... We are trying to find a new kitten. I have already bought the litter box, kitty litter and food and vitamins to get started now just need to get serious on our search for the "purrfect" kitten! ( told my son that we had to wait until the Christmas Tree was down )

I don't think they will. Hubby went outside yesterday to put some more ham under the boat and when he got to the boat, he heard a "rocket" take off into the woods!
