This is where I like to sit and snoopervise mom when she types our blog for us.

I'm very good at balancing. Just like I am here.

The second mom gets up from the chair Minchie takes over keeping it warm for her.

Seeking Out Heat

Laila loves laying on the spots where the heat pipes are under the floor.  JoJo and Sammy, who Mom has been cat sitting for the past four weeks, do the same thing in their condo.

 Let's try a different angle.

Ah ha!  It's Minchie!

What is this crazy little sister of mine thinking? She scaled the tree faster than mom could blink her eyes.

What we older mancat brothers have to put up with!

Laila finally realized we both can't fit up here. This is where I come for some peace and quiet.

Mom has put my winter blankie on the bed but with this warmish weather Chicago has been having, I haven't been on it much. But I'm sure in time that will change.

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!
