The Purrfect Gift for Kids

Hi everyone! Today we are joining It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? The kiddy lit version hosted by Teacher Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers.

I apologize if you are sick of reading about Prancie’s Prayer. I want to thank everyone who has purchased it and/or written a review. I was thrilled when I check my publisher’s home page and saw it listed as a best seller for October. Click here.

As most of you know, it is a children’s ( ages 3-7) picture book set at Christmastime. It is based on how our cat Prancie joined our family. She really did appear at our outdoor nativity. I always tell people she went to Jesus for help.

I started blogging because I wanted to help cats by sharing knowledge I have learned from living with them. I also hoped to make money blogging so I could donate to rescue groups. I will admit that I have not made much blogging, I have only had 2 paid posts in over four years of blogging.. I have decided to donate all my royalties from October-December to Boston’s Forgotten Felines. I get just under $2 on every book sold ( except those purchased through me).

I chose this Boston’s Forgotten Felines because I have been following on of the volunteers, Joni Nelson, on Facebook for years. She is out at 3 AM daily feeding ferals in Boston. Many people treat her badly and try to poison the cats. Many of the cats are friendly and not actually feral, she tries to rescue them and find them homes, but there are so many. Boston gets very cold in the winter and I wish they had a place they could bring them inside , but all they can do is make shelters for them and feed them.

Here are the links to places you can purchase Prancie’s Prayer. Please share this post and help spread the word.

We are also joining Comedy Plus’ Awww..Mondays. I hope Prancie’s Prayer will make you say Awww..

1. I tried  __________________ and I liked it.
2. Am I the only one who ___________________?
3. _________ is my hero/heroine.
4. If I could eat only one food for the rest of my life, it would be _______
My answers:
1. I tried a California roll and I liked it. I always thought that was another name for sushi, but the local grocery store had free samples of ones with chicken and it was tasty.Now I want to try to make my own.
2. Am I the only one who asks Alexa if I am the fairest one of all?  I am always asking her questions and I couldn’t resist. The first time. she said I was, the second time, I wasn’t.
3. Joni Nelson is my heroine. She gets up at 3 AM daily to feed ferals in Boston, MA in all weather. Her recue is called Boston’s Forgotten Felines. You can follow them on Instagram, click here. Honestly, anyone who does anything to help cats is my hero.
4. If I could eat only one food for the rest of my life, it would be pizza. Meatball and mushroom would be great ( a little meat and a little vegetable).
I got Trouble a dress so she will be easier to photograph. I was also hoping she would be calmer in it.

National Feral Cat Day

Happy Friday everyone! Today is National Feral Cat Day. I am glad there is a special day to bring their plight to everyone’s attention.

NationalFeralCatDay 10.16.2015

In my part of town, there isn’t a feral population. Any stray that I have ever found, I kept. I did get them all vet checked and asked around to be sure I wasn’t stealing someone’s cat ( although, I would if needed). There are feral populations in town that dedicated people care for. Last year, when my friend’s father told me he wanted to trap and move cats that were coming into his yard from the feral colony next door- I told on him. I alerted a lady in town that knew the lady that cares for them so she could make sure he didn’t do this.

I also know a lady in Boston that has cared for ferals for over 20 years. There was an article about her in the Boston Globe last year: link to Boston Globe.  Her group is called Boston’s Forgotten Felines and can be found on Facebook . I try to donate to them as well as Alley Cat Allies as often as I can afford to.

polarbearI found Polar Bear in town, near a place I was cat sitting. He showed up several days in a row for food and he was easy to catch so I don’t know if he counts as feral, but he definitely has a wild side.

molly Sorry to hear of another loss in the Blogosphere:
