My ferel, Hobo talked to me the other day! He's been out there for at least 5 yrs. & this is the first I've heard him mew to me! All this time I've read that ferels & strays do NOT talk.Hobo is a real trip. He's so trusting of me that several times he's actually come in my house & jumped on my kitchen table to eat my cat's food! He just marched right in thru the sliding door I had left open for some reason or other. He even jumped on my couch a few times and took a short snooze!Hobo is the "block" ferel. At least 2 other neighbors feed him [I give him both kibble & canned] and my vet's 'girls', who work there across the street, give him antibiotics in his food when his breathing gets raspy. One neighbor has shelter for the ferels, as have I on my covered back porch. I went out & bought a heated pet pad for him and the vet's 'girls' built him a covered straw shelter in the back of their building.Yep, Hobo's livin' large on my block.
