Remembering Blondie the feral cat, 2007-2016

On this day 7 years ago, January 15, 2015. Breakfast with Blondie the feral cat (with full winter coat).

Blondie was the first feral cat I hooked up with, way back in year 2007. She was just a kitten at that point, and she popped up one morning at my campsite, along with two of her siblings from that litter (I had spotted Blondie’s mother — who looked just like her — a couple days earlier, dead on the side of the road, hit by a car… so the litter of kittens had ended up abandoned in the woods nearby my campsite — that’s when I started feeding the feral cats).

Blondie hung out at my campsite for 9 years until she disappeared one day never to be seen again. But her lineage lives on to this day with Moo Cat, who was her daughter from her first litter.

I always thought Blondie was very beautiful. And she had a very sweet personality, too. But she was definitely feral. Even though we hung out together for years and were very close, I never once petted her.
