Cats on Tuesday: Feral Cats in City Point, New Haven
One of my daughters lives in the City Point neighborhood of New Haven, Connecticut, which is in southern New England on the shore of Long Island Sound. There is a very large population of feral cats there. Winter and summer, they live outside and avoid all types of city traffic in this oasis of quiet and calm. The City Point residents all help the cats with food and shelter. Since they are feral, the cats won't move in with families. But other shelter is provided. A neighbor has built a dog house type structure on his front porch. It has bunk beds, heat and a sky light. Food is provided. During the winter nights, this feral cat shelter is always full. And the cats even share the shelter with possums! My daughter told me I couldn't photograph it because it was on private property. In my photo above are two cats that wait for Anna to feed them on her front porch.
