There are so many brown striped feral cats around here. Less black and white ones. Orange cats are the minority. I just had to take this video.
I was taking a walk in the neighborhood, because I love watching trees and bushes go backwards as I walk forward, the scenery changes. I see cats everywhere. If there’s a cat under a car, I’ll see it. And there was this orange cat, really cute.
Is it a cat or a kitten? Cats have their babies in fall and spring. Especially I see them in the fall. This one seems to be a teenager.

This feral cat must’ve smelled the cats’ food. When I opened my window to let Hazelnut (black and white feral cat sitting on top of the air conditioner in the video), in the house, this cat just stared at me. I wish I could feed her, too, but I can’t afford to feed ALL the feral cats in the neighborhood. I work for minimum wage, doing surveys over the phone, and feed four feral cats and pay the vet for their treatment.
So, she was so cute, I just had to video her, these wide eyes. By the way, I’ve made a mistake with my previous videos, holding the camera vertical, when I should’ve been holding it horizontal. Which is why there were black edges on both sides of the videos. I corrected it. Here’s the result.

You might have wondered, and maybe even worried if your cat is all right, if there’s something wrong, when you see her sleeping for hours and hours. But you have nothing to worry about. It’s normal for cats to sleep all the time, and it doesn’t mean your cat is sick. It’s just in their nature.
How many hours a day does a cat sleep?
The average feline sleeps twelve to sixteen hours a day.
Cats just love to sleep. Cats certainly sleep much more than humans. Why do cats like to sleep so much? It’s not that they’re lazy. It’s probably an evolutionary thing. They gain new energy through sleep, recharging for a new day in the jungle. You need a lot of energy when faced with survival issues such as predators and food shortage, and when you have to hunt for a living and rely on sharp instincts and speed to survive. That’s why cats need to sleep so much.
And felines can nap in places that would’ve been uncomfortable for a human, positions that are inconvenient. Sometimes they sleep curled up or in other strange position. Again, that’s the only way to survive in the jungle. It’s not like they have bed and breakfasts in the forests. Feral and domestic cats make do with any warm spot they can find.
That feline ability to fall asleep so easily fascinates me, as a chronic insomniac who’d suffered from inability to sleep since childhood. Although it’s a shame cats sleep so much and miss out on activity, I’d happily trade places with them. Besides, they can always dream fascinating dreams.
The transformation from sleep to wakefulness is easier for cats When cats wake up, they’re usually not as cranky as a human who’d been awakened. They don’t need their three cups of coffee to start the day. They yawn, stretch, and are ready to go. Another evolutionary trait that helped them stay alive in the jungle. You can’t wast time being disoriented when you’re both a hungry predator and a small creature who can fall prey to larger meat-eaters.
Cats have an acute awareness even when sleeping My cats always wake up when I want to force them to swallow a pill or put anti-flea drops on the back of their necks. I had a cat who’d wake up whenever I walked out of the room, and he’d follow me and fall asleep next to me. Another way to survive in the jungle, when you don’t know what kind of creatures may approach you when you sleep, and what their intention is. When deep sleep can be dangerous, a light snooze will do.
I was taking the garbage out, and there was this cute cat outside. I just had to video her. Can’t take her home, though, because I already take care of four cats and can’t afford another one.

Here’s a video of a rather unusual cat that didn’t want to pose for the camera. It’s difficult to shot a clip of an uncooperative cat. It has a color I can’t describe.
There are a million feral cats around here. You see them wherever you go, jumping out of garbage cans, hanging in backyards. I took four home, and I’ve taken a few sick cats to the vet. But I can’t take them all home.
There are cats’ feeders here, who give food to the strays in parks, yards, and sometimes in the streets. Some people give them a hard time, because some people see these cats as pests. But they’re hungry, and they didn’t ask to be feral cats. Shelters are full.

This is one of my four cats, Amiga. She’d leapt into my life four years ago, smelling the cats’ food I’d put in my first cat’s bowl. I live on the first floor of a four floors building, ground level, so she found it easy to drop by anytime she wanted.
First she was afraid of me, but then she started letting me pet her. She didn’t know she could sit on my lap. The idea just never occurred to her, because she’d been living on the streets all her life and didn’t know much about humans.
So once, when she wanted to leap out the window, she walked on top of my legs because I was sitting on the sofa on her way to the window, and I just petted her and gently pushed her down until she was sitting on my lap. She liked it, and now she sits on my lap for hours every day, and I have to push her off because I have to cook or go to work. She practically lives on my lap now.
