Happy Thursday everyone! Today is Phoebe’s day off- I forgot she was going to be traveling with some friends and her purrince too. Today they will be at the beach.: http://meezertails.blogspot.com/
Lucy and I decided to do a book review today because tomorrow we are lucky to have Cat Scout Felix doing a guest post. Lucy and I loved Feral’s Rainbow Forest Family by Pamela June Kimmell . It is a sweet children’s book about a cat whose name is Feral-well he hears someone call him that so he figures it is his name. He organizes a colony of feral cats so they can feel safe and loved.
I felt sad for Feral and all the cats and I hope that is how everyone feels that reads this. It is important to teach children respect for all living creatures. I also like how the book such cooperation in the community of cats and that everyone is needed and equally important. This is a great book for kids and adults. I am especially impressed that Pam did the illustrations too!
Right now you can get this book and help Bootsie at the same time, the author, Sammy’s Mom ( https://onespoiledcat.wordpress.com/ ) has donated a copy to Bootsie’s auction:http://earsforbootsie.blogspot.com/ .
Phoebe did make something for her Grammie on canva.com before she left for her vacation:
And the winner of the catnip mat and toys is :https://doggiecaperz.wordpress.com/ -Congratulations! I hope Ladybird will share with the kitties 🙂
That sounds like a really nice book!
It sure is 🙂 Sammy’s Mom is a great writer.
What a sweet book, and concats to Ladybird!!
It is a sweet book.
We’re happy you liked the book about little Feral and also glad that people are pawticipating in Bootsie’s auction so well ! We checked yesterday and they’re getting close to the amount of money needed for his surgery. Thank you!!!
That is great news about the auction- I just hope he has a place to stay. He is going to be a great companion for someone.
What a great book! I have read about Bootsie on a few other blogs. I can’t donate to an auction as I live in England but I have made a small donation on line. Everyone, it’s really easy to do! http://www.youcaring.com/bootsie-s-surgery-fund-404486
That was very sweet of you to donate.
What a lovely book. And it’s written by Sammy’s mum? Then it’s a MUST-read, for sure!
As you know, Nissy and his littermates were feral. My sister, Tobias, was too. The rest of us were abandoned but now we all have a home which is pretty good, I should think.
It sure was written by Sammy’s Mum and I agree it is a must-read. I know Nissy’s story, it is my favorite in the Rescued book. I just wish his story didn’t end so soon- I miss him.
That does sound like a very cute book and we are so glad to hear about someone writing about feral cats. It is important that people learn the correct facts about feral cats. They are wonderful animals.
They are and awareness is important so they get treated properly.

I have been suggesting a sequel to the Bridge book too- we must keep bugging Sammy’s Mom.
Concats to Ladybird! The book that Sammy’s mum wrote sounds lovely.
It is wonderful 🙂
This sounds like a fantastic book. It makes me sad to see homeless and feral kitties, too.
It is a nice book. There are too many homeless cats in the world 🙁
That sounds like a sweet book.We agree, it is important to teach children the value of all life and also how they can help animals in need!
Congrats to Ladybird. We know she will love her new mat 🙂

I hope that Pheobe is enjoying herself! You are so right about children learning to respect animals. It’s great that there are books like this one to help teach children the easy way. It is really generous of Sammy’s mom to donate that book!

She is very talented. 🙂

This sounds like a wonderful book. I love the thought of bringing awareness to feral kitties, and teaching children at the same time. Phoebe’s graphic for her grammie is so cute.
We did our post today about the bikini. 🙂
I will check out the post- I can’t wait to see the bikini on your kitties 🙂
That looks like a really sweet book!
Yes, it is 🙂
We have to put this book on our reading list for sure!

Congratulations to our good friend, LadyBird. We love Phoebe’s card for her grammie. Thanks for telling us a bit more about Pam’a book. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
LadyBird is a sweetie, I am glad she won.
We didn’t know Sammy’s mom wrote another book. The mom read her other book. She said it was good. Congrats to LadyBird.
She wrote 2 children’s books- I will be reviewing the other one next week. I love the David’s Bridge mystery too.
Aw I bet the herd’s grandmom would love this. We both have feral or semi-feral kitties in our care 🙂
Anyone involved with rescue will love it.
The book sounds great – mom just put a bid in for the book! Oh! Thanks for letting me win the goodies. The cat nip and toys are all for my felines – but the blanket is all mine!!
I made sure not to put catnip in the mat that way the cats won’t steal it on you. 🙂
