Feral Flash Back Friday with Sweetpea



This is kinda a before and after post with me Sweetpea hosting.  Mom trapped  me as a feral kitten living with a colony of cats in the woods behind her house and brought me to live indoors.  She was scared I would not live through the winter that year,  especially after the whole group disappeared for days after a cold and snowy day.    We must have found a warmer place to go 'cuz we all showed up again in a few days but Mom was sooo very worried about us especially me "cuz I was so tiny.


I lived in the  bathroom for a few weeks until I got used to being handled and petted.  The vet had to sedate me to examine me and told Mom to bathe me quick while I was still out like a light.  I guess I was dirty, full of mats and had a skin condition.   I was fierce even though I was small.  Bit by bit I got better behaved and was allowed out to meet Angel Chica and Angel Yoko who were a bit older than me.



This is me now 15 years later - not much bigger than then but all growed up!  I love my peeps and will sit in their lap whenever I can.  I love Pop and want to sit on him whenever he watches TV.  So you see feral cats can be tamed - even older ones.  next week we will tell you about some other ferals in our house.  Have a super weekend!

What a happy adoption story, Sweetpea. It does take a while for a feral kitty to warm up to their families but once they do, the waiting was all worth it. :)

We're so happy you were rescued and settled down to enjoy your indoor life! My parents had a feral they brought inside. She was rather aloof but did have a weakness for brushings ;-)

Sweetpea, you are proof that feral kittens can be brought in and rehabilitated into happy, safe housecats.

How awesome that you were taken in by such warm and caring humans. And how wonderful that you learned to love them. I love stories like that.
