I was just over at Manx Mnews and saw that Gracie seems to have issues about being called feral. But in a lot of ways, feral is a good thing: it is being a cat in the purest sense of the word, unfettered by human convention and assumptions!
A feral cat is wild and free, raw and beautiful at the same time.
Feral cats are noble and brave and demand respect.
They are smart and cunning — they have to be to survive.
With her heightened sense of awareness, a feral cat senses things that other creatures, especially humans, can’t.
Because her soul is so very precious to her, there will always be a part of a feral cat that is unknowable to humans. Smart humans not only understand this, they are a little bit in awe of it.
Any human who has managed a feral colony can vouch for the truth of everything I said. Being feral just means there is a part of you that will never be tamed, and that is the part from which all exciting things happen.
