Bringing all this fanfare together, October also marks Tabby’s Place’s 10th Anniversary. Rather than banging pots and pans and tooting noisemakers (which we do every day anyway), we’re celebrating by Expanding the Mission to feral bosses cats, through targeted Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR).
Get your noisemakers ready, then go read all about it on our homepage. Go ahead; go read it. I’ll wait.
Back? Did you make your $500,000,000,000 donation? Good.
In observance of all this, some of our feral bosses have gone ahead and hijacked this blog. The Olympics can keep their Parade of Nations; Tabby’s Place has its own procession of former feral cats. I hereby present you with a sampling of Tabby’s Place residents who have come our way from the wild, wearying outdoors.
Representing Semi-Ferals Who Decided To Stay At Tabby’s Place Forever Whether They Like Us Or Not:
Hailing from the nation of I Once Was Feral But Now Am Friendly:
Born To Feraldom, Raised In Love are:
Representing the feral cats who made it All The Way To The R Of TNR:
Representing the Utterly Unferal Ferals, who came from feral settings without a skosh of ferocity:
And finally, our Forever Loved former ferals:
I don’t always shamelessly ask you for money on this blog. But when I do, I do so for the cats. So here goes: if any of these former ferals have touched your heart, will you please swing back over to our homepage and help us wrap our love around the Dillingers and Peggy Sues and Maybelles still out there? Let’s do this together.**
*Cool kids in the 80s referred to awesome things as “boss.” So you would not be overstepping the bounds of decorum to call feral cats “boss.” Then again, you would also not be overstepping the bounds of 80s decorum to wear pants like this. Use your judgment.
**If you did, in fact, make a $500,000,000,000 donation the first time around, you are exempt from this request. 😉
