It's good to get the best seats for dinner! These feral cats are early arrivals, hoping to get in on the goodies before anyone else. You can't blame them, really; when you're a feral cat, food is a top priority.
These guys were about two hours early for dinner. So now they wait, patiently.
That's normal, though. I always have cats lining up in advance, trying to get the best spots for the coming meal. It's like getting the best table at a fine restaurant.
