Once upon a time there was a funny little calico cat named Tangerine. Tangerine didn’t have a home and lived outside with a group of other homeless feral cats (feral meaning not used to human contact). One day in the summer Tangerine decided to hide under the lounge chair where a girl sat outside reading books and giving love to some of the other cats that Tangerine knew. Tangerine would sometimes bat at the girl from under the chair, as she was a very silly and playful kitten. She was starving and skinny and needed some help because her fur was falling out and she had sores all over. She was pretty much a mess. So she reached out to the girl, who helped her get to the … Continue Reading →
It’s here! National Feral Cat Day 2012! This is my first time ever participating in an event like this. See below for a cat linky party for you bloggers ( I want to hear your cat stories too!), a very special creative video I made, and a Free gifts giveaway-all to celebrate this cause. Why am I doing all this special stuff for Feral Cat Day?

This week’s featured outdoor colony cat is a sweet boy that I named Apollo. I have a soft spot in my heart for him because of his sweet nature, but also because he looks so much like the very first cat that started this whole thing, Courage.

It’s been almost 2 months now, so I am thinking he is gone for good :( but that is for another story. I think it is possible that Courage and Apollo are brothers. For one thing, Apollo is the only other cat from this colony that has a long and lanky, … Continue Reading →
If you are new to my blog and are wondering what is up with this cat thing I am doing, we have a feral cat colony problem in my neighborhood. No one else (that I know of) is helping, and being the animal lover/compassionate person that I am, I (and my caring family members) had to do something about the problem. These cats are not all my indoor pets, but I am their outdoor caregiver I guess you could say. If you would like to read the story about a cat called “Courage” and how this colony thing began, just click HERE for part 1, and HERE for part 2. This week I want to introduce you to a pretty calico cat named Pumpkin Patch aka “Pumpkin“. How … Continue Reading →
