Commissioned by Fix Our Ferals (F.O.F.) for Grand Opening of clinic, 12Aug2012. Photo: 'Cats&Bricks' won F.O.F. Judges First Place & People's Choice Awards in inaugural photo contest, Dec2011.

By chance or by choice

homebound or homeless

feral or tame

adopted or roaming free.


Welcomed or bothersome,

fleeting encounter

or lifetime companion -

a dilemma becomes a blessing:


we rescue them,

fix’ them,

feed them,

foster them,

be-friend them.


Compassionate embrace.

Kindness for our community.

Lop-sided agreement of keepers and kitties.

We are partners where they live.

A poem that shows love for cats, so commonly shared. We don't have one, since my husband isn't one for pets, but there's a cute black and white cat that visits our scrap "feast."
This is a wonderful picture! The cats are gorgeous and the setting and focus of the picture is great--I'm sure my semi-pro photographer daughter would heartily approve.

You are doing a wonderful thing. There is a feral feline lady I feed each day. I've been doing it for two months. Yesterday she let me pet her for the first time! Hopefully soon I can make sure she gets spayed and a good home. Thank you for what you do.

like George, i bless your good heart, Vicky;
the pic is perfect!

Reviewed by Ronald Hull 8/13/2012
I'm glad you're out there–doing this. I don't think cats have ever really been domesticated. A recent study mounting cameras on cats showed that they roam widely while out of the house and killed an average of two other animals a week.
