Happy National Feral Cat Day!

feral catsremember these grocery store parking lot kitties? this colony was the one that started it all for me... click here to revisit our story. gosh, it's been 2 years already!

tiger tabby feral cathere is a familiar sight... our neigborhood feral cat Gemini. i see her frequently and always thank myself for getting her spayed. she is looking great and has her thick coat coming in. revisit her 2009 TNR story here.

now that cooler weather is approaching, i really would like to TNR 2 more ferals i've seen out and about; a black and an orange. just need to wrangle a volunteer to help transport them to the clinic cos it's too much stress for me to do single-handedly: the trapping, holding over night in my basement, early 7am clinic drop off/ pick up/ monitor and feed (overnight to 48 hrs for females)/ release. it is a great reward to help these cats and knowing their lives have been improved and preventing further kittens from being born. there are just so many healthy, socialized cats waiting in shelters that need homes.

today and all year round, please spread the good word about feral cats and how people can help with TNR (trap-neuter-release).

We have taken more feral cats into our home than our own cat would like. I love cats, and even if it belongs to someone else, I think they should at least be innoculated against cat diseases that can lay they low. This post brought a smile to my face.

I can't believe it's been two years since you posted that story about the grocery story kitties. I remember it well. Gemini is a beautiful cat and is very lucky you are looking out for her. I wish you the best in catching the next two. It's a wonderful thing your doing helping these cats and controlling the cat population.
Thanks so much for sharing.
