I've always had a terrible feeling that one or both of my sweet ferals would not appear one morning. Well my little female hasn't been here since Saturday and she never, ever misses a meal. Her son is here but she is not. I feel so terrible about this. Every night when I say good night to them I tell them to be careful of the cars but I drove around and didn't see her. I'm worried that someone may have harmed her deliberately. There are many in the subdivision that do not like "stray cats" as they call them. There has been an ongoing thread in the HOA forum about people not being responsible and so on about cats. Many posted that the cats were a nuisance and should be trapped and euthanized. I feel so badly for the little male. It was his mother and they were inseparable for over 4 years. Do you think he might just stop coming or I just don't know what to expect. Letting him into the house is not an option because of my two dogs. I just don't know what to do for him. I talked to him tonight for a long time. I feel so awful about this.
