New Friends on Formerly Feral Friday



I am Rosa and wanted to do this post for Formerly Feral Friday since I am one of the newer ferals to live with us cats.

Mom is real big on caring for and helping feral cats since we came into her life 10 years ago. She got us all TNR'd and even tamed us! It has been a real learning experience for her.

She found a couple of blogs about helping cats and thought since today is Formerly Feral Friday we should let everyone know about these neat folks so you can visit them too.

http://animalsheltervolunteer.blogspot.com/ is about a couple who volunteer at a Connecticut no kill shelter called PAWS that rescues cats.

The other blog is http://homelesscatcare.blogspot.com/ based in Arizona and they have been caring for a group of feral cats for three years.

Both groups are listed on our blogroll in the sidebar. These folks could use your verbal and financial support so do visit them and show them you appreciate wheat they are doing for all us cats!

Kitten Memories of Al on Caturday





Mom was looking through some old photos and found these of Albert. Al (our soon to be five, blue-eyed deaf cat)has always been very funny about the spots he likes to nap in and finds the most quirky eclectic places to hang out. We had a shop and soup take out restaurant with a full commercial kitchen when he was a kitten. When we were closed he was allowed into the kitchen and we never knew where we would find him - usually sound asleep!

Only on Catnip Caturday

Mom found a neat store for cats and dogs called pet harmony. They are a rescue group who fosters pets until they can be adopted in furever homes. Everyhting they sell in the store goes to help homeless animals and they have all sorts of high quality stuff and food.


Mom bought us this catnip banana and gave it to me to try out.



This is lots of fun - heehee.



Uh oh. Two Spot wants to play with it too!


I want it for myself cuz it is nice and big - good for me to hold on to and kick it.




Whoohoo - I am wiped out! Time for a nap. Happy Caturday!

Bears and Wordy Wednesday

We had a visitor the other night and we all got scared!


The woods next to and behind our shelter.


Our screen porch.


Mom and Pop had gone to bed. Pop woke up after midnight cuz he heard a noise outside. He flipped on the back light and saw a black bear rummaging thru our recyclables. He was a young yearling male - not real big but big enough. He went into the woods when the light came on.

The beans went back to bed and then Pop heard more noise - this time next to our shelter's screen porch. Mom put on all the lights in the house but we don't have any for the side yard where we are so Pop went outside banging pots and pans and throwing his golf balls to scare the bear away from us. With only a flashlight, he could hardly see as it was so dark. Mom was worried about Pop and thought after she should have pressed the car alarm and scared the bar off that way.

Pop thought the bear went away again and he checked our porch to make sure it was OK. They both went back to bed, putting all the inside lights off but leaving the outside ones on. Mom couldn't sleep cuz she was so worried about us and when it was daylight enough to see she went outside to see if we were still OK. She was upset at what she saw - the bear must have come back again and clawed and ripped all the screen down on the front and side of the porch. Pop had nailed hog wire up under the screen to keep us in and critters out - it worked. The bear bent the wire with his paws or mouth but not enough to get in or for us to get out. He was trying to get at the bowl of dry food on the table.


Pop put the screen back up right away so Mom did not get a picture of the mess the bear made but you can still see the rips and bent bars wire and muddy paw prints on the screen.






We were all hiding and scared to come out even when Mom came inside. Poor Al was way in the back room under a chair and was shaking. Mom carried him out and sat with him on her lap to let him know it was OK. He is deaf so he may not have heard the bear but saw him and was surprised!

Pop stapled all the screen back up and Mom put tape on the holes for now. Pop also screwed boards over the middle of the screen frame to keep the bear from pulling it down. They put bags of empty aluminum cans next to the screen so if the bear comes back we can hear him and maybe the noise will scare him too. We will not have food in the outside area for a while now - and Mom took in all the bird feeders too. No food - no bear! I hope we don't see anymore bears. That was so scary for us.




Mom said there have been more bear cubs born this year and so that means more bears looking for the same amount of food. We are sorry for the bears but don't want to share our food! Be careful if you live in bear lands!

Kitty Shopping with Yoko

Mom was getting ready to go shopping for foods and I wanted to go too so I snuck in her bag...she picked it up and started to walk out the door but wondered why it was so heavy! She looked in and there I was - busted! I didn't get to go after all.
