Feral’s Rainbow Forest Family

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!

  1. 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!!!

    Hugs, Sammy

    1. 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.

  2. 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.


    1. 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.

  3. 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.
