I took the video of these cats on my way to the clinic. Not having a car and having never learned to drive, both of which I regret, I either take the bus or walk. I walk a lot, because I love nature, seeing trees, bushes, flowers, blue sky, and feral cats. Plus the opportunity to pet other people’s dogs.
Some nice person must’ve left the cats’ food outside, so the orange cat could enjoy a good meal. There are so many feral cats here, that you get to see not one but several every time you leave your house. This is what I love about living here; blue sky and plenty of sunshine throughout the year and feral cats everywhere.
I have three of them living in my house, and my sofa is ruined. Here’s a furniture protector for anyone who wants to take a feral cat in, or buy one, or already has one.
Of course, there are also downsides to living here, like dogs running around unsupervised, some of which are aggressive and may attack without provocation, terrible heat during the endless summer, and winged cockroaches that get into houses, some of which are practically finger-sized.
So, anyway, these cats were willing to pose for the camera, which isn’t a given when dealing with the feral cats community. These cats were friendly, trusting, and not camera-shy. They were definitely good models. Different colors, too.
The best way to shoot a video of a cat is having the cat look at the camera, but it’s not always easy to achieve. Often, they just run, and all you get is their retreating tails.
Anyways, here’s the video.
This furniture protector will save your couch, bed, or any other furniture from looking like my shredded sofa.
Just walking down the street, I saw a beautiful black cat with unique yellow eyes. Definitely worth filming. It was amazing.
I love shooting feral cats’ video clips. Every time I walk down the street, I run into several feral cats, either walking or napping on benches. There are always cute cats, and in the spring and fall, there are many kittens as well, especially in the fall.
There are feral cats in every yard here, more if they’re fed. There are feral cats living in my house, and my brother had adopted a feral cat himself, so did my sister. There are cats in the college campus and in parks and children playgrounds. There are cats in the north, south, east, and west, in large cities and small towns. Feral cats are everywhere.
I like to film them during the day, where the light is good. There’s plenty of sunshine here all year around.
And don’t forget the cats on the beach. Yes, they’re there too.
The cat wasn’t so difficult to film, like some cats who run from the camera, like my Amiga. It was friendly and cooperative. Here’s the video clip.
Your cat will love this paws and purrs modern pet sofa, 31.5 wide, with removable mattress. Cats love sleeping on soft, elevated sofas. And the most amazing thing about it is there are different colors to choose from. Imagine a black cat in an oatmeal colored sofa, or a brown cat in an ash colored one! And what will a blue-eyed cat look like in a teal colored sofa?
I was on my way to the grocery store, when I saw this cute cat, pretty friendly and trusting for a feral cat. Just had to take a video clip here.
So many cats, in so many different colors. Cats with stripes and patches, cats with one black ear and one white ear. Kittens and mother cats. You get to see it all just walking down the street, sometimes just to take out the garbage!
I have a passion about shooting videos of feral cats. How about filming your own cat or a feral one in your neighborhood? It’ll decorate your blog, and you can share it with friends and family.
Take a look at this cats tower with scratching post and plush hammock. A real treat. You feline can amuse itself scartching the post until falling asleep in the hammock.
I went with my niece to this garden, and there was this cute and friendly feral cat. Feral cats are usually not friendly, and they run when a human gets too close. They certainly won’t let a stranger touch them.
But this one feral cat was trusting and friendly, completely unafraid. I wanted it to jump in my lap while I was sitting on a bench, but it wouldn’t leap. My niece said it’s a ground cat, not a bench cat, and I found this hilarious.
These cats springs are velvety and super springy, a combination that’ll turn your cat wild. Colorful enough to decorate your house, and helps bond with your cat during play. To learn more, click here.
There’s nothing better than running into feral cats that decorate the streets here. I was on my way to work when spotting this cat. Just had to video her.

These are the questions humans interested in buying this unique and lovely breed ask themselves.

What do ragdoll cats look like?
You may be asking yourselves: how do I know if my cat is a ragdoll?
Well, ragdolls are large felines with luxurious coats and long tails. Their sparkling blue eyes is their best features. Eyes so bright. You can almost say it’s a radioactive kind of blue. Ragdolls with different eye color are not accepted by the breed standards.
The ragdoll’s body is lighter than its face, ears, tail, and legs. Which makes it look like the dark colors are framing the cat, like a light picture in a dark frame. Kinda neat, huh?
Is a ragdoll a good cat?
Ragdoll are playful, which is nice if you’re the kind of person who enjoys watching your cat pounce and swat, like me.
Ragdoll cats are social, something that can’t be said about most cats.
They’re usually trusting, which should mean they don’t go wild when taken to the vet, like my cats. That makes life a whole lot easier, both for the cat’s owner and the cat. No one likes seeing their beloved pet stressed and terrified, and it’s no fun being scratched while trying to give your cat a pill.
Are ragdoll cats worth the money?
Every cat costs money in food, vet’s visits, cats toys and cats beds. When paying for a ragdoll cat, you only pay once, while paying for cat’s food can easily cost much more over time. And you get a friend for life. So yes, I believe ragdoll cats are worth the money.
What is the history of ragdoll cats?
In the 1960’s, Ann Baker, a Persian breeder, had started the first ragdoll cat with Josephine, who was a feral white cat. Ragdoll cats are believed to be a mixture of Burmese, Birman, and Persian.
Whey are ragdoll cats so friendly?
That’s how they were bred! Just like Persian cats are bred to have this flat face we all know and love, this long fur, and huge eyes, and don’t forget the tiny nose.
Do ragdoll cats like to play?
Ragdoll cats not only like to play, but can actually be trained to play hide and seek and fetch, like dogs. This is very entertaining for both cat and human, and strengthen the bond between you and your kitty.
Should ragdoll cats be kept inside?
All cats should be kept indoors because they’re prone to be hit by cars, or they may get lost. However, ragdolls cats especially should be kept indoors. They’re too trusting for their own good, and they may get hurt by mean people.
A fenced-in cat friendly yard is the exception. You can make your yard cat-proof with no sharp object on the ground and no bushes that are poisonous for cats, and then let your ragdoll cat run free in the yard to its heart content.
Whatkind of personality traits do ragdoll cats have?
Ragdolls are loving! Lap cats. Soft, warm, and fluffy against your body. That’s what I love more than anything in this world. They follow you around anywhere, like dogs. And they like fetching their toys, also a canine trait.
Ragdolls are gentle and calm, which will be easier on your furniture. You won’t have a shredder beyond recognition like the admin writing this post, whose sofa has suffered irreversible damage by three feral cats right off the streets. If I take it to a thrift store, they may not accept it. If I leave it on a street corner, no one will take it.
And you won’t come home and find toilet paper all over your house, the way it was with my hyperactive kitten.
Having a calm cat means you can take it to the vet, or give it a pill, without having to write a will first. Being scratched to death is a pretty awful way to die. My cats always turn into tigers in such circumstances.
Ragdoll get along fine with kids and other pets.
That’s why ragdoll cats are the best cats ever!
Are ragdoll cats smart?
Ragdoll cats are highly intelligent, and you may even be able to teach them simple tricks like to bring the toy back when you throw it.
What’s the best thing about ragdoll cats?
Perhaps the best thing about ragdoll cats is their sociable, affectionate nature, and their devotion to their humans, whome they follow everywhere. Or maybe it’s their beauty.
Are ragdoll cats popular?
All their wonderful traits have made ragdoll cats very popular around the globe. People know a good thing when they see one.
How often do ragdoll cats need grooming?
Having a pretty long fur, ragdoll cats need grooming at least twice a week, but of course more frequent grooming would be nice.You can find a best seller cats and dogs brush here.
Why do ragdolls go limp when picked up?
That’s what ragdoll cats are known for. The reason why ragdolls go limp when picked up is because they’re so relaxed. All cats get a bit limp when you pick them up, because it reminds them of the times when their mother had picked them up by the back of the neck with her teeth, kittenhood memories. But with ragdolls it’s more extreme, maybe because they’re calm cats to begin with. Or maybe because they’re large and therefore heavier cats.
Are ragdoll cats OK on their own?Do ragdoll cats get lonely?
Ragdoll cats are OK on their own, but they prefer company. You can still leave them alone when you go to work, run errands, take a walk, etc. They’re more independent than dogs and can amuse themselves, especially if they have some catnip filled cats toys to play with while you’re gone.
What kind of health problems do ragdolls cats have?
Obesity, urinary problems, polysystic kidney disease, and heart problems are health problems that can occur in ragdolls. Get your ragdoll from a reputable breeder, not a store!
Do ragdoll cats shade a lot?
Ragdoll cats are long-haired, and they shade, but not a lot. They don’t have an undercoat, which is the cause for heavy shading.
Brush your ragdoll to limit shading. They shade in summertime, so if the house or yard are very warm, they may start shading. An air conditioner during the summer can prevent this. Long haired cats like these won’t be bothered by cool air. Not freezing, just a bit cool.
Should I buy a ragdoll cat?
You may be asking yourself, is a ragdoll cat right for me? Well, if you like a playful and affectionate cat, one that isn’t too hyper and doesn’t shade too much, although they do shade some. If you like those piercing blue eyes and long, thick coats, if you don’t want to have to deal with a violent cat whenever you take it to the vet or give it a pill, then yes, it’s the right cat for you.

Do feral cats need water?
Feral cats need water desperately. You can’t imagine how much feral cats need humans to leave water for them, especially in this hot climate.
do feral cats drink water? Sure. I’ve seen this with my own eyes, many times. Cats don’t drink much, but cats and kittens do need to drink sometimes. Where I leave, it’s California-like climate, steamy and hot like the inside of a washing machine. Stray cats don’t have the luxury of an air-conditioner or even a roof over their furry head to protect them from the blistering sun.
Leaving containers with water in yards and parks is extremely helpful. Or a water bowl. You can get one here. Anything not too deep but wide, as apposed to deep and narrow, because a cat cat get its face stuck. I do that in summertime. It almost never rains in the summer. Whole summers go by without a drop of rain, no puddles to drink from.
I shot a video of a feral cat drinking, but she got startled and refused to drink as long as the camera was there, so I walked away. She went right back to the water container. The video was pretty much cut short, but she is cute. Here it is.
How do feral cats get water in winter?
You might be asking yourself: where do feral cats get water?
There are kind hearted people who leave bowls with water outside for feral cats. Around here, it never snows, and feral cats drink from puddles.
However, it doesn’t rain in summertime. Cats drink from dripping garden hoses and sprinklers. And if they can find a dripping water fountain outside or in a shopping center, that’s great.
At least where I leave, you can see an occasional feral cat strolling in a shopping center as if it owns the place. And sometimes they nap on branches inside the mall. There are also water fountains in parks and gardens.
But in cold climates, all standing water freezes, and it’s hard for cats to find water. There are rivers with moving water that hopefully don’t freeze, except sometimes it does, like a river in Chicago. Cats will drink from sewers. They’re not fussy.
Sometimes there are dripping pipes outside buildings where cats can drink. Dripping water won’t freeze, not while they’re dripping. In the garbage cans, there are plastic milk bottles, either spoiled or almost empty, but not quite. Soup, sauce, gravy, and other liquids that cats can drink. Their sharp nails tear open the plastic.
How long can a feral cat go without water?
An average cat can get dehydrated in 24 hours, and may not survive more than 3 or 4 days. But it also depends on the weather. If it’s very hot, the cat may not last this long.
Should you leave water out for for stray cats?
I think that’s an excellent idea! Around here, there are feral cats’ feeders, people who leave water out for feral cats, vets who take care of feral cats for free on occasions, and people who take feral cats to their homes.
How to keep feral cats water from freezing without electricity?
Place it a bit higher off the cold ground and the snow.
Put a hot water bottle underneath.
Or get them a device that has splashing water. As long as water is in movement, it doesn’t freeze. You can put one outside for feral cats, as long as your yard is fenced in, and nobody will take your fountain. Or you can get one for your pet.
Get your cat this automatic pet fountain. Cats love splashing water. That’s why they drink from the faucet and toilet. This beautiful blue fountain will decorate your house as well as delight your cat. To spoil your cat or help feral cats, click on the button or image.

How do kittens learn to hunt mice and birds?
Kittens learn from their mother, who first waves her tail to encourage her kittens to try to catch it, and then brings them prey so they’ll learn to catch and kill it.
You can teach a kitten to hunt by dragging a shoelace on the floor and having it chase it, or by buying mice toys and balls to swat and chase around the room, if you want your kitten to hunt cockroaches and flies. I don’t suggest letting a kitten kill mice, because a non-kill trap can get rid of rodents without killing them.
At what age do kittens learn to hunt?
When do kittens learn to hunt? Each kitten is different, but kittens usually get hyper and playful at around five weeks old, which includes chasing anything that moves, which is a first attempt at hunting.
Kittens may not have the experience older cats do, but they make up for it with their hyperactivity. The more playful a kitten is, the better they are at hunting.
Persian cats, for instance, are often lazy and not as skillful hunters as feral cats, but every cat is different as an individual.
Cats usually like a larger prey. Mine usually don’t bother too much with mosquitoes but follow flies and leap at them. This is also an evolutionary trait. In the wild, a larger prey meant more food.
This remote controlled mouse feels like real prey because it’s fuzzy, with soft ears and a dangly tail. It stimulates your cat’s natural instincts and get it running and pouncing, providing fun and exercise to keep your cat health and happy. Click on button or image to read over 32,000 great ratings.
