PoeBoy51 is thankful for....

Shadow

I am immeasurably grateful to the kids who partly socialized my dear Shadow before she entered my life. They had found her sitting under their mother's wash line, waiting to pluck off the line any birds who might perch there. Food, shelter, and play with humans not much bigger than herself were more attractive to her than life outdoors. She still wistfully looks out the window when she hears little voices, and there are times when she is as fierce and independent as any big cat on "Wild Kingdom." But she is my "baby" in addition to being my very best feline friend.

Kayla is thankful for....

All of our rescued kitties... past, present and future!

We're grateful every day for our cats - for the small amount of work we put in for them (litter box, food, vaccines, etc.), we get so much in return. It makes our home feel like a home. Anyone who thinks cats can't love, feel, think... has never spent quality time around them. They're among the most loving creatures we know. They are sentient beings like us, and they deserve to live a good life, whether indoors or in TNR, cared-for cat colonies. They are wonderful animals and yes, great hunters, most of them!, and we count ourselves lucky to have known so many. Thanks.

I am grateful for every day that I have with my beautiful 13 year old tortoiseshell cat Yoda. She was born with cerebellar hypoplasia to which she has adapted to the point that nobody can tell that she struggled as a kitten. Then three and a half years ago, she was diagnosed with diabetes. We have it under control with 2 insulin shots daily, and I tell Yoda that I will continue as long as she is willing and able, hopefully for at least 7 more years!!

These 3 babies were born to a feral mother in July. I trapped the mother before she gave birth so that the kittens would have a chance. With how cold it is already, I am thankful that the babies aren't outside. I am also thankful that the local shelter fixed all 7 of the kittens for free while they are on their waiting list. Also, I am thankful that another local charity gave me a voucher to have mom fixed. She is back outside with her best friend, the feral mom I fixed last year.
