Feral Cats

EER_0272 (3)

The people have long gone. The house is falling down, but not empty. A group of feral cats moved in to make themselves at home. I saw this old house when I went back to visit my home town a couple of years ago. The big gray cat on the post seems to be the leader of the pack.

Wild cats find a home
Old abandon house shelters
All from winter’s cold

People have gone but
Cats remain // a feral pack
Guilty neighbors come
Bringing trays of food for them
Keeping their distance they eat

Never experience human touch

  1. I adore cats, tame or feral, and I like to think that we have affinity for each other. It made me sad to think of the cats in an abandoned house, never experiencing a human’s touch, but I’m so happy that the neighbours bring them food.
