You don't have to be a die-hard cat lover to adopt a shelter cat and give them a new home, but you have to be a mega-fan of felines to put in the time and effort necessary to befriend a feral cat.
This is especially true if you're an avid bird watcher like Backyard Birder and the feral cat you're befriending has been killing the fine feathered friends in your area:
A beautiful feral cat starts hunting backyard wildlife – a dilemma for animal lovers! I decide to watch, film and try to get to know this wild creature and see if a win-win solution is possible.
Stopping a feral cat's killing spree by befriending it is truly compassionate, and as you can see in this video by Backyard Birder he is a very compassionate man, and his efforts helped save the lives of cat and birds and squirrels alike.
Backyard Birder's first feral cat encounter took place in 2014, and the feral cat in the video was later caught by the city and adopted.
A year later another feral cat came strolling into his backyard but this smooth operator only worked at night, so Backyard Birder simply observed and documented the night prowler's actions.
