This is a tribute to my Moonshine, a feral cat it took me 2 years to tame. Strongest bond I think I ever had with an animal.

YouTube won't allow my song choice to upload with the video, but for full effect I play John Denver's Country Roads, starting at 0:23 seconds in.

Darn, the video says private. I'm not savvy enough to see if there is a work around. As to the bonding with the feral, I agree! We adopted a poor little abandoned girl that had been dumped at 11 years old on the streets. She was shy and declawed Seal Point Himalayan and after 2 weeks of slowly starving, she was down to a little over a pound before she was rescued by a Good Samaritan that spent over $900 nursing her back to health. She bonded with him but he had terrible allergies to her and could not keep her. I adopted her but neither of us realized how deep her bond was or how traumatic the whole experience was for her. It took me a full year before I felt she had bonded with me but that bond - so hard fought and won, was the sweetest love I have ever felt from a cat. We only had her a couple years due to ongoing health issues but she was so sweet that last year of her life.

ohh, I didn't consider that this was a tribute to his passing! I thought it was just a tribute to him in general. If it's his passing, I am so sorry for your loss!! I didn't want to go without saying. :dis

So sorry about your Moonshine. I have a feral that took me a long, long time to bond with, and I worry about her every day, and I have a bond with her like no other bond to my other cats, so I understand what you are saying about that bond. I'm so sorry for your loss. Hopefully you can fix the video to where we can see it, I would love to see it.

:oops: DOOOH! I must have goofed it up when I uploaded it. Doesn't look like I can fix it from my phone (I'm away from my home computer). I'll fix it as soon as I get home.

I have to be getting old because I am getting worse with computers all the time

What a great tribute to Moonshine! He looks like he was a healthy, happy boy with people that loved him very much! Can't ask for more than that!!

Sorry for you - losing a feline friend is horrific. Can't see the pictures but I do think ferals are wonderful when they decide you are theirs.
