Two Tabby Feral Cats at Rest

Two tabby feral cats, just relaxing and napping after breakfast. This is their most contented time.

I took too much time off for my birthday, probably, so I haven't posted much since the weekend. It happens. The kitties still get attention every day but I don't always schedule time to take pictures of them.

This is also coyote season and I worry about how many cats we will lose. The most heartbreaking, of course, are the ones that were tamed as feral kittens and put up for adoption - but nobody adopted them. We lose some of those precious pets every year. :( It's so sad. I do what I can but I can't guard them 24/7 - if only I could. I wish there were more homes because I have several kitties that could be adopted and kept safe instead of living in danger among the colony.


  1. That is a "you lookin' at me?" expression if ever I saw one :)

  2. Heartbreaking, indeed. I don't know how you keep on sometimes...you are amazing!

  3. Thank you. I try to at least give them a chance at a decent life but the rest is out of my hands.

  4. Hi, I came to your blog via Art and Sew Forth's. Sounds as though you are doing a wonderful job of helping these beautiful cats.

    Best wishes,


  5. Good to find others who are dedicated to feral cats. I found you through an Etsy for Animals blog, I am a new member. I foster 28 cats currently: 2 diabetic, 2 HIV positive, and many feral. You have a beautiful website and creative blog!

  6. I am new to blogging, trying to gain knowledge and contacts for TNR which the city I live in does not support. You look like a veteran.
