Cat Colony Christmas Photos (Their First Christmas)

One last set of photos to share from Christmas for (mostly) Wordless Wednesday.  If you have been keeping up with my blog, then by now you know about my efforts to help a Feral and Stray Cat Colony issue in my neighborhood.  All of the photos today are of colony cats.  Some of them are the outside ones we help, and some of them are indoor ones that have now been adopted.  This was their first Christmas! 🙂 We wanted to bring a little joy to their lives.  If you would like to read more about the colony cats I care for and their stories, you can click HERE to be taken to the archives, or just look for the Cat Colony tab on my website.  Looking out for the welfare of animals is something I am passionate about!


Because I had over dozen photos to share, I decided to put them in gallery format instead of attaching a bunch of big ones one after another and overwhelming you.  So here is how it works :  

What you will be seeing via email or on my site is a collection of thumbnail photos with captions.  Just click on the first photo and that will bring the gallery up ( I promise it is worth it-more entertaining than thumbnails haha).  You will be able to easily scroll through larger photos set against a black background with the included captions which explain the photos.  If you want to see the pictures blown up to full size, just scroll down a bit and you will see on the right hand side where you can click on a spot that says to view them full size.  When you want to exit the photos and get back to the post to leave a comment or whatever, just hit the ESC button on your keyboard.

Note** If you subscribe by email and want to see the full size photos, you will need to click on the title of the post in your email to be taken to the website.

  1. Lovely photos! We live in the country and seem to “collect” feral cats, especially in winter. They obviously pass along the word that there’s always food here… Sometimes they become tame enough I can get them spayed or neutered, but that doesn’t happen often. At least they know they have a warm place to sleep (in the barn) and eats.

      Thank you! You are at an advantage with being in the country and having a barn for them. Nice of you to try to get them fixed and feed them as well 🙂 I have been able to tame several of them, but only because in the summer I spent a lot of time outdoors and they got used to me. It takes lots of time and patience to get them to come to you like that. I know some people do live trapping to get them neutered, but I haven’t so far. I just pick them up and put them in a cat carrier (the ones I have gotten to trust me). We can’t afford to really get them all fixed or we would. It can be up to $50 a cat and well..there are like 20-30 or more in our neighborhood. We do what we can to get it under control though! I bet yours just love having a barn to crawl in to. We live in town but near the woods…so it isn’t too bad for them, but we had to build shelters to stuff with straw.

  2. Sweet; looks like it was a wonderful Christmas!! 🙂

  3. Every photo is cuter than the one before. I like the falling snow effects, too.

    They are so cute! I know they must have had a wonderful Christmas! You are very special for taking care of them.

    • Rebekah (We Live Inspired) says:

      I think they did. Probably the adopted ones enjoyed it the most, but all of them were happy to get fish! Thank you for the sweet comment , I think that is about the nicest thing someone could say as I do put a lot of effort in to helping them 🙂

    What great pictures – Looks like the kitties had a purrrrfect christmas!

  8. I enjoyed scrolling through the photos. Minnie is adorable and Tangerine is just precious! Well done for caring for these cats and kittens and helping some of them to get adopted.

    Did you know that Samantha’s kitten, Tabitha, was adopted from the SPCA? Samantha, who’s 12 years old, chose her quickly from many cages of cats with kittens. I’m so glad that she chose her and named her. 🙂

    • Rebekah (We Live Inspired) says:

      Thank you for commenting. I did not know that Samantha’s kitten was from the SPCA! That is awesome! I think that cats that need homes like that make the best pets because they are so grateful. So cute that your daughter got to choose a kitten and so wonderful of you guys to support a shelter and adopt. Thank you for that. I never realized just how many unwanted cats need homes until the issue hit close to home here in my neighborhood. Tangerine is such a sweetie , I am glad you thought she was precious too 🙂

    I am so glad you remembered to linkup and thanks for your kind words. I feel like it’s important to feature these kitties up for adoption – it breaks my heart to think of them 🙂
