Trav: Greetings, One and All. Trav here, aka "The Traveller." #1 told me that today is a special day, the start of a big celebration for many people around the world. Apparently, they call it the season of good will to all, so I thought it would be the perfect time to express mine, and my thanks.
One year ago, I am not really sure where I was. #1 says that from just how feral I am, I must always have been on my own, never knowing the comfort of a home or the sweetness of a kind hand. Anyway, you may remember that I somehow found myself at the end of this lane in early March. I wasn't sure about this place at first but nobody chased me away, which was a first. Then, little by little some food started to appear for me. There were some other cats around but they were pretty cool and there was a floppy-eared woofie who didn't even chase me. For a while, I came and went but started to hang out quite regularly on an old mattress that was on top of a beat-up car in a hangar. There was a lady with curly hair who started talking to me, and I could see she put out food for me.
The months passed, and the food kept coming, two meals a day! The lady showed me a spot at the back of her garage where there were boxes filled with soft straw. I got my very own food and water bowls and I now have a warm shelter for when it gets cold (hasn't happened yet). And I even have a name. She calls me "Trav"! I still wont let anywhere near me, no closer than about three feet, but I am so, so thankful for everything I now have. I know many of you have been asking about me from afar too and I would like to let you know how thankful I am.
Merry Christmas from your feral friend, Da Trav!
