I think Daddy is a former feral

Ok folks, I think my daddy may be a former feral too. I've seen him eat beef and it is crazy. He leaves crumbs after he eats, he won't close the bread bag after he makes a sandwich and he hates the flashy box too! Not to mention his messy litterbox habits. tee hee hee. Just kidding.
There are other reasons, but here is some photographic evidence that may make it certain.
This is one of our feral racoons. She now has three tiny babies that come up to eat at our bird feeders (the peanuts are actually for the blue jays - we have 4!) Look at how she munches on those peanuts.




This is my daddy. He munches on peanuts like a wild racoon! He does this not just when baseball is on either....




What do you all think?? Maybe daddy and I have more in common than we thought!

You need to put him to some sort of feral test, maybe lock him outside for a night and see how he does against the elements and other animals.

You know... you are on to something here... I think our daddie is formerly feral too. We have the same issues here.

You make some interesting points! I bet you should ask your Mom, they seem to think all of those men beans are pretty feral.

It cood well be, ours was a feral and still is semi-feral for much da same reasons as yoors.

Daisy said...

Yep, formerly feral. My Daddie is still partly feral. Only he eats pistachio nuts.

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Oh yes, I think you are on to something here. Your photographic evidence definately suggests your Dad was formerly feral.

HRH Yao-Lin said...

ha ha good diagnosis, definitely a former feral there, most definitely. Obviously, your female human has trained him. Or did you, hendrix? How did the toilet training work out in the end?

Lotsa dad beans seem feral. Dats why they need mom beans to tame them and make them sleep inside.

That's so cute, Mr. Hendrix! Your Daddy might indeed be a former feral. And I wonder if my big fuzzy sister Brainball might be part raccoon, as much as she loves peanuts!

Maybe all daddies are formerly feral? I'm thinking mommies have tamed them or something but it isn't a complete taming. Hmmm.. I'll have to give this more thought.

Monty Q. Kat said...

Yeah, I have to agree with the Zoo Crew-HeBean admits that if MomBean didn't care for him he'd wind up in the gutter eatin' nothing but paper.

Kimo & Sabi said...

Hmmm... does yer daddy like to stay outside a lot? Our Daddykitty does. Wonder if our Daddykitty is formally feral?

Kelly Cat said...

Kinda hard to argue with that evidence, Mr. H. The peanuts are a dead giveaway.

Parker said...

I think you are on to something. That's pretty strong evidence!

Lux said...

Definitely formerly feral. Now you've got me watching my dad, and it *may just be a guy thing!

INAMINI said...

Aren't all dads former ferals?

Hmm, Hendrix, I don't know much about daddies -- I told my mom she only has room for one man in her life: ME! And please don't let her see that feral raccoon, or she'll be bringing in my house!!

Peach Man said...

For sure, he's a formerly feral. I bet he tries to escape when you love on him too much too or mess up his hair!
