Scylla Sunday Meowing About National Feral Cat Day

Scylla & Socks
National Feral Cat Day, which is October 16 this year is very important to ME. If it hadn't been for Mommy and the people that rescued me, I might be a Feral Cat today. For those of you who do not know my story. I will re-tell it.

Scylla & Charybdis 4 weeks old
My Cat Mom was a feral cat and was probably a victim of the 2007 petfood recall. The Spay & Neuter Alliance had been feeding her and were waiting to trap her until she brought her kittens to eat so they could trap them at the same time, since they didn't know where she was hiding the kittens. They found her dead at the place they usually feed her so they went to look for the kittens, thankfully they were able to find some of us in time. They found four of us still alive.

Mommy went to look at some kittens after Whiskers died, that the lady who fostered for the Spay & Neuter Alliance was trying to find homes for. Mommy was looking for one that looked like Whiskers. She didn't find a kitten to adopt, but she did talk to the lady about possibly fostering kittens.

So when the lady got four 4 week old kittens that need to be bottled feed she called Mommy to see if she would possibly foster two of the kittens. Mommy agreed to foster two of the kittens and she brought me and my sister Charybdis home. The minute Daddy saw us he told Mommy she could keep us if he could name us. So we got a home right away.

You can find out more about National Feral Cat Day here.

They have a Facebook Page you can visit too.

And I thought I would share the Jackson Galaxy video with you before I goes to take a nap.

  1. Feral Cat Day is impawtant to me too....I was found under an abandoned house in the middle of the country without my Mom and my siblings so the shelter said I was a feral baby. Mom and Dad adopted me and the rest is history......your "baby photos" are so cute!!!!

    Hugs, Sammy
