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. We love our ferals and they sure are part of our family.

  4. Thank you with my heart for all you and your boss did. And taking those babies too. It makes me happy to read.

  5. Feral cats are the best and thanks for feeding them when you did.
    Have a great day.

  6. Thanks for sharing the wonderful photos of these beautiful feral cats. We at home here have about five feral cats we take care of and they are just like part of our family. Great seeing these beautiful little ones. Have a great rest of your day.

  7. Lovely photos of the ferals. I hope they found somewhere safe to be fed after the building was sold.

  8. That was sweet of your mom to care for them. I feel so bad for cats that don't have forever homes. XO

  9. Good on your mum for being so good to the feral cats.
