Today I will take a side trip from the subject of books to give you a tiny view of our life in the country. Out cat population has exploded. It all started with one mama cat who likes to hide her kittens. When they finally make their appearance, they are so afraid of these huge humans they have never seen before that they are pretty much feral. If you can’t catch them, you can’t give them away or have them neutered! So their numbers have continued to grow. Recently my husband decided to take matters in hand and started letting them eat from a coffee can while he touched them. After several weeks, we actually have several formerly wild cats that have become affectionate and want our attention. The original mama cat is still wary. She knows who feeds her but that is all she wants from us.
