"Caught in the feral (cat)act..."

Tonight I surprised a feral cat that was hunting for lil critters. Since I had not seen my pair of wild red squirrels lately I wondered what might have occured. I stalked "Patches" here, and although it (she or he? ) has beautiful eyes I am not pleased about its hunt for birds and squirrels.

Yes, that is a busted lobstertrap, on top of an old - by now leaking - rowboat...

The knapweed in the foreground feeds goldfinches before they head South or are caught by ferals like "Patches".

PS Re-posted a zoomed version.
PS2 I am kinda cranky with (these) feral cats;
my lil friends, the squirrels have disappeared!
I am waiting for the eagles to migrate thru,
and restore the balance.
