One of my favorite authors, Craig Childs, wrote the other day about stray cats that have passed through his family’s life. One sentence grabbed me:
Feral means reverted to an untamed state from one of domestication.
Most of us nomads have escaped domestication, turning from house cats to free ranging owners of our own life. There are those who want to take us in, feed us, clean us up, vaccinate us, chip us, declaw us, neuter us. We decline. Been there, done that, got the mortgage. But thanks for the shower. And wifi. Gotta go.


  1. A cat is not considered feral until it can survive without human help of any kind. You dont qualify unless you have spent several weeks sleeping in a tree dining on all manner of small vermin! LOL

  2. Little kitty is a killing machine.
