It's wild weather here in the central valley of California...or as wild as it gets here at any rate. Heavy winds and rain, no worse than any we've had before. Usually during weather like this, the ferals go to ground, generally under the house out of the weather but I've been noticing since last night they seem agitated. One black female cat was at the door acting like she wanted in and she got so close to me I was tempted to reach out and touch her. Of course, she bolted. I woke at sun up...well, it was up somewhere I suppose....and nearly the entire colony was gathered on the patio where I feed them and at the back door. Again, several acted like they wanted to come in and they never want to come in, no matter how bad the weather! I don't usually feed until later in the morning but I went ahead and fed them. They are still gathered out there, and I just don't know what to make of their peculiar behavior.
Today is the first day of spring...Hah!
