National Feral Cat Day - KC & Kitties

Mine brofurs & sisfurs is all formerly feral cats!
Yup, effurry one of us.
So we's living proof of how wonnerful Feral Cats can be!

I was finded wandering by mineself on a dock in San Pedro, CA.
They looked and looked, but could never find a trace of mine fambly.
I had to learn to survive at a furry young age of just a few weeks.

Brutus Junior is named after The Royals' Brutus, cause bof are such big Texas man cats.
BJ and all tha boys were born here, inside the house, to his Momma Dinah who was a wild feral cat.

 Sol is Smokey & BJ's brofur.
He has tha most gorgeous jet black furrs, wif just a spot of white on him's chest.
He was tha runt of tha litter!

 Sweet Faith Boomerang is a former feral who lurned to take cares of hers self at an early age.
Who would effurr know that to look at her today.
Hers is Sol, Smokey & BJ's half-sisfur 'cause all of them had tha same father, Romeo.
Her mom, Momma Tortie, bringed her to our doorstep after hers father, Romeo, tried to kill her.

 Smokey is BJ's twin brofur. 
He is an acrobat and nearly gives effurryone heart attacks wif him's antics.
The three brofurs haf never known life outside as true ferals.
Since them was handled so much after they was borned, they's furry affeckshunate and loving.

Missy Blue Eyes was a feral living in an apartment complex.
Effurryone feeded hers, but no one could catch her to bring her home.
After haffing a litter of kittens, Natalie was able to bring Missy into her home.
Missy came to live wif us when Natalie was diagnosed wif cat hair allergies.

Momma Dinah & Momma Tortie were too wild to go to regular homes, so they are living as farm cats wif night time shelter. Sort of tha best of bof worlds.
Romeo was the Daddy of Faith Boomerang and Sol, Smokey & BJ and countless other cats. 
He was feral although many people took him in and tried to make him into a housecat. 
He hated being indoors.
He was hit by a car last year and died.

Mommy ML is currently attempting to trap another outside cat, a black and white kitty that is furry fast. Once captured, it will go to Dr. Smith fur checking out. If he/she is healthy, we will foster and find a forever home for it. 

National Feral Cat Day was launched in 2001 by Alley Cat Allies, the national advocate for feral and stray cats and a recognized authority on Trap‐Neuter‐Return. Check out their site for information on lots of ways you can help feral cats!

Love & Purrs, KC

Oh yes, feral cats are beautiful and lovely. Purrs and headbutts!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Wonderful post! You all have been very lucky and we're so happy you have a wonderful human mom. Good luck to her trapping this latest feral!

Nicki was a feral kitty, found young, though, at 8 to 10 weeks of age. He was lucky to have been taken in by a no-kill shelter in our region (not our city) and fostered until he was ready for adoption. :-)

WE totally have to agree that all of you have the best momma in t he world. You couldn't have found a better home if you had tried. We love feral cats, they are the very best. It sure was fun to see all of your pictures. Great looking Sherwood bunch.

Bless your Mommy for taking care of you all, and truly feral kitties.

Sparkle said...

KC, the cat before me was a stray calico kitten my human found in San Pedro in 1986!! I wonder if you two might be distantly related - wouldn't that be crazy?

Angel, Kirby and Mac said...

You are all very lucky kitties. You good a very good furever home!

We love Mom ML so much for taking such good care of you all. We purr and pray she is able to catch the newest feral.

Punapippuri said...

We just love you wild, fearless formerly ferals! And your Mom is a true hero for de-wilding you all.

Oui Oui said...

We didn't know all of you were ferals! We have had a couple in the past, and our Mica Minnie Moo was one too. How great of you to give so many a loving home!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

What a story. They were all fortunate to get a home and not have to fend for themselves as ferals. It's a shame daddy Romeo was killed by a car, but so many ferals are. And we're glad to know the moms are "employed" and happy.

Sweet Purrfections said...

Any kitty would be lucky to find a forever home with Mom ML!


Au and Target said...
