I do not know what I would do if I had to live in an apartment that did not allow my cats. Lucky, my apartment allows my three cats. :)

OldFishLady, my mother would love you! Actually, I do too! I would love to live out there, and it does seem like the animals know where to go to get help or else the people dumping them know that such and such a person will take them. Hence, why we keep getting cats dumped behind our house too.
On with the show! Hopefully they don't come through too big.
We also found that feral cats/kittens, once tamed make the best cats, they are the most friendliest to people and to other animals, though they are skittsh with strangers.
This is LitteBit, someone dumped her in the dead of winter when she was 3 months old.

This was Baby, she was put down last week at 16 years of age, very smart cat.

This is what the cats are doing inside, while we shovel snow from this big storm.

We don't eat at this table by the way, just homework and stuff. These four are from the same litter, they have at least two different fathers, they came from feral parents. We have from the back-forward, Princess, Checkers, Snickerdoodle and Chihuahua-3 girls and 1 boy. Chihuahua is an exact replica of her father and Snickerdoodle is an exact duplicate of his father, diffrent cats.

This is Snarls Barklay (aka The Fuzz) another feral from the same mother, only him and his brother survived the litter, his brother was dark grey and white, no orange anywhere, they also had different fathers-cuz we had 3 diffrent male ferals running around and one was solid orange, one drk grey and white, the other orange and white. That momma sure got around.

Yes, I know the difference between feral and a stray, big difference actually.

You are one of few that understand cats really can't take this type of weather, they weren't meant to survive outdoors 24/7, that really shortends their life span.
We have an attatched garage with a kitty door so they can get into the house if they want, otherwise they would howl and hang from the window on the door looking in at us to be let in.

I just love what you are doing by helping these cats that noboby wants anymore. I wish I had a big house so I could do it. Anytime I see a stray roaming the streets I want to take it home and care for it. I would probley go overboad though I have around 100! Then I would get arrested for hoarding cats lol Does you state have a limit to how many cats and/or dogs you could keep?

They do within the city limits...but I am not within the city limits so I don't have to worry....I do wish people would be responsible and spay and neuter their pets.....I hate seeing animals suffer and starve to death....so cruel and sad.....I wish I could save them all.......

In my area they have a great program to spay and neuter low cost for anyone... more states should have this type of program for more than low income people......and more people would do it.....

I agree. Two of my cats I had neutered with a special program like that. I think I only paid $12 a cat. A lot of times I see people getting kittens cause they think they are so cute (which they are) but then when they get adults they get rid of them or drop them them off in the woods. It is really not fair that some people would be so selfish like that they would risk throwing away a life

My (kind of) uncle is like that. He gets a kitten and then hates it and dumps it at a shelter when it grows up. Why do people get so surprised when a kitten turns into a cat?
He is one of the few people I would like to slap. :/

Thank you Aluyash! She really was not fat, it's just the angle(yeah I say that about myself all the time) She had a good life, we got her when my dad's coworker couldn't keep her, we had her for 16 years so she must have been around 17. Other than her, all of the cats I've had throughout my life have been strays or tamed ferals. Ferals are the sweetest! You can pick them up and the just lay there and immediately start purring.
