Guest Post with Cat Scout Felix

Hi, everyone! Today we are very lucky to have a guest post by Cat Scout Felix. He has a very important post today.

33a--Felix-Cougar-Hat-Nov-2  Greetings, everyone!  Today I wanted to remind you about a very impawtant date coming up next month: National Feral Cat Day on October 16.  nfcd20162This annual event allows you to make a difference!!

National-Feral-Cat3 Alley Cat Allies sponsors this annual event to

feralsraise awareness about community cats and how you can help them survive.  If you would like to sponsor an event to raise awareness about feral cats, there is still time!  Alley Cat Allies recognizes blogs, tweets, volunteer projects, special  events, and they will provide you or your group with materials and tools to have a successful NFC Day!

Auntie Ellen and probably many of you have pawticipated in helping community cats in your area.  Every little bit of help really saves lives and improves the lives of our relatives who are not lucky enough to have homes.

If you think you can devote a day, a blogfest, an event or any other activity that will raise awareness about our feral relatives AND possibly get other peeps involved, GO FOR IT!

Every bit of information and networking that alleviates suffering and publicizes our feral relatives’ needs is a VERY GOOD THING>  One cat at a time, one community at a time….


Thank you Felix- that was excellent! If we all do something, it adds up. This is the first year I have been involved with TNR and I am glad I decided to try. Brody is happy about it too.


And one more thing-the question for P.S.Annie’s 19-Somethin Challenge is :Did you get into any toy or game crazes? I just had to have a Cabbage Patch Kid, I am not sure why being that I detest dolls. My Dad waited in a big line to get me one, mine is a preemie boy. I still have it, but I didn’t have time to get a photo.

Phoebe will announce the winner of the pirate giveaway tomorrow .dscf2519


  1. Indeed, we do all we can for ferals. Grizelda & Chloe Jo were born of this. Their mother was a stray; their father was feral. I think that is why Chloe Jo has issues. We have worked with strays and ferals for over thirty years. There is a need there. It is rewarding, too. You rock, my friend. Thank you for all that you do.

    Phoebe, you are adorable. Always. XO

  2. What a great project the TNR is. Hope lots of kitties get the help they need, esp the N part. and lots of good food to help them get along.

    Oct 16th is our aunties birthday, so we will not furget…but the petcretary has to work that weekend…always something.

    Our petcretay has a few of those Cabbage patch dolls, MOL! She knit clothes for them and used them to model baby blankets she had crocheted. Now they are safe in a chest in the closet, MOL!

    She has a lot of the Beanie Babies too, mostly doggies and kitties with a few bears and some others. She has two of the whole series that were in the kids meals at Mickey D. No clue what she will do with those:)

    1. Maybe some of your Beanie babies are worth a lot of money. Someday she will have grandkids to give them to.

  3. All three of us were born to feral or semi-feral mothers and we know we were furry lucky to have been adopted when we were still kittens. We purr-ay for all feral kitties to be so lucky.
    Our Mummy says that when she was in primary school (aged about 9), all the girls had Sindy dolls and she gave her own Mummy and Daddy no peace till they got her one. All the girls used to bring their dolls to school and swap doll clothes in the playground during the break (recess).

  4. In our household of 5 cats, I am the only non-formerly feral! We certainly support feral cats and will make sure we do a special post on October 16th!!! We all love you Miss Ellen!!

  5. Thank you for this very important message. We do our best to help the kitties in our neighborhood. Many have adopted us over the years and taken our hearts with them when they went on to new homes or over the bridge.

    Forgive me for not know all of the kitty lingo…but, what does TNR mean and what is the difference between a stray and a feral? I thought they were the same thing.

    I am glad that your dad was able to get you the doll, Ellen. They were very, very difficult to get in some areas and caused no end of trouble in some stores. What do you think caused you to detest dolls?

    Thanks for playing along with our challenge. Have a blessed day!

    1. TNR stands for Trap, Neuter and Return. Peeps working with community cats (ferals) get as many as they can spayed and neutered, ear-tipped, and then they return them to the area where they were found.

      Strays are cats that once had homes. Ferals have never had homes and are generally wary of people.

    2. I just never liked dolls, I always preferred stuffed animals. 🙂 I think Felix’s mom answered your questions about TNR.

  6. Oh that is an important day and important message…….and bless you for your involvement in TNR – you’ve helped a LOT of ferals have a chance at a REAL home where they can be safe and loved. That includes Brodie!!!!

    Love, Sammy

    1. I think Brody must have been a stray because I won him over pretty quickly 🙂 xo and love to you and your Mom.

  7. I had nearly forgotten about National Feral Cat Day coming up, so thank you so much for reminding us, Felix! You are such an inspiration with your TNR work, Ellen. So many kitties, including your happy and handsome Brody, have benefited so wonderfully from it! Purrs!

  9. We certainly will make a post that day. We are big fans of the feral cats and have many here with us. We certainly applaud anyone that will do TNR. The feral cats are so important and they do make wonderful pets. Thanks for this great post.

  10. Our shelter is one that helps with TNR in this area. It’s one of the most gratifying things we do.
