National Feral Cat Day

For many years Mom fed and provided shelter to the feral cats that hung around her office building.









This little trio of kittens were rescued by Mom and her boss in 2003 in the back lot of the office. The little gray one ended up being our cousin, Angel Gizmo, who lived with Mom's sister.

Angel Gizmo preferred Christmas trees to outside trees after his rescue.


These are just a few of the many ferals that hung around or visited over the years. The building was sold the summer of 2009 so the ferals have gone elsewhere. Mom drives down that street often and still looks for her buddies but has never seen one. 

National Feral Cat Day was launched in 2001 by Alley Cat Allies, the national advocate for feral and stray cats and a recognized authority on Trap‐Neuter‐Return. Check out their site for information on lots of ways you can help feral cats!

  1. Great post and glad that you helped feed some feral cats. They really are nice cats, just on the shy side and not very trusting. And it is so rewarding when you get one to trust you. Take care and have a great day.

  8. It's so important to help ferals whenever you can - even though they don't cozy up to humans, a lot of times they need them.
