I try and feed the ferals around my park. They keep the rodent population down, although I hope to catch them and have them immunized, fixed and re-released back into the wild. Other animals that abound my place are wild hogs, wild turkeys, quail, owls, raccoons, coyotes, wild rabbits/hare, tarantulas and snakes.
This is a short clip of Socks, a feral kitten that I rescued from living outdoors with its mother and one other sibling. If you watched my previous video of a white, feral female cat, she is the mother of Socks. She has had many litters, none of them reaching adulthood due to the wild animals (coyotes, raccoons, owls) that prey on them. I caught Socks at a young age by simply using a laundry basket propped up with a water bottle, some twine and dry cat food. The mother cat and other feral kitten are a bit more trickier to catch and may entail a better means of entrapment. I hope to get the mother and other feral kitten fixed, vaccinated and re-released back onto the property (or possibly have the kitten adopted if caught young). Being feral, the mother cat is an outstanding hunter, There are some days where I travel a lot and come home to (unfortunately) bird feathers in the back of my home. I've actually seen the mother cat snatch a flying bird in mid air. She also catches mice, a big plus in this neck of the woods.

For almost two years, I have been feeding this white, female cat. She's feral, but affectionately visits me from time to time. She's had several litters already, but unfortunately none have survived into adulthood due to the harsh environment here (coyotes, owls, etc.). The father of her pictured kitten is also black and white, but has already been missing for several months. I try my best to feed and water the few feral cats around here as they cut down on the rodent population and are a pleasant addition to this raw neck of the woods.

Beware of speeding, careless truck drivers. Some are so pressed for time that they go way above the speed limit, 55 in California. I was just getting ready to pass this truck on an incline when he suddenly swerved in front of me without ample warning, endangering others. I used to be an examiner at the DMV, so nothing infuriates me more than observing a careless truck driver such as this one. Final score: FAIL.
I was walking around the mobile home park and saw something moving under an old oak tree. I slowly and carefully approached the moving object to find two "homeless" baby hawks, that appear to have fallen out of the oak tree. Mama wasn't around, and after looking around for any other orphans, I swiftly gathered the two and dialed the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. They said they'd be down to pick them up, so in the interim, I have attempted to give the little birdies water out of an eye dropper. Up here, raccoons, coyotes and other wildlife roam freely and would have easily preyed on these little fellas.
This mobile home at the foothills of the Sierras, 1200' elevation, is up for sale. I'm not making a penny on this, just trying to help someone find a place in exorbitantly, overpriced California. Landlord is asking $9k and about $400 monthly lot space. Provided you have decent credit history, you can "barter" with her. Nearby are streams and lakes cascading from the Sierras. Also there are a lot of camping grounds within walking distance including a Forget Me Store (like 7/11). Fishing, hiking, boating, bicycling are but some of the recreational activities up here. If you travel into town, there are even casinos. There are more mobile homes in the park up for sale, as well. Sorry, I don't have the keys to record the interior, but you can make an appointment with the landlord to view the availability of housing in the park.
