Thankful Thursday: The Ferals of Winter

      41 Comments on Thankful Thursday: The Ferals of Winter

Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it! We do know all too well that so many of our friends have had a much worse winter than what we’re having here in South Carolina. However, below freezing and single digit temps are unusual for us, especially the single digit temps.

Our area hadn’t had temps that low since the 1920s, so it’s obvious that our ferals never experienced cold like that either. We were sure worried about them and were hoping they would hang out in their heated feral house. Today we are so thankful that all of the ferals that we care for made it through that rough cold spell.

This extremely bonded pair is Momcat on the left in the chair, and Tabs on top of the feeding station. Momcat is Mom to twins Zelda and Zorro. We’re hoping to TNR again really soon.

But today, we’re so very thankful that the coldest part of winter may be gone and that all of these sweeties are still with us.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    Oh what fun to see the feral cats. They look comfy. Glad they have some heated houses. And we are so thankful, we didn’t get any snow or ice. Hope you all made it through the snow. Take care.

    Thank you for taking such great care of your ferals! You guys are not use to the weather you’ve been having this winter. Right now we are having Lake Michigan effect snow. Looks like maybe 4 or 5 inches so far. 🙁

    It has been cold, for Georgia too! We haven’t had a flake of snow in our parts though. We would like just one snow day! Glad your ferals are all doing okay — hope no more cold spells come your way!

    Whenever the weather is really bad, I always think about the animals who have to brave it outdoors. Hoping they all find a safe, warm place to sit it out until the Winter is over.

    Your feral kitties are very lucky to have heated house and food. Glad they made it through the cold spell. We had some snow, too, but it has pretty much melted already. Spring may be just around the corner 🙂

    We hope March will bring warmest temps here. You know it’s been cold when TW came home today commenting on how “warm” it was but the temperature was 24 and the wind chill 16.

    You are so very kind to care for the ferals, especially in the cold of winter – here’s hoping you can accomplish the TNR.

    It sure has been some winter…our temps have been averaging about 40 degrees below normal! We worried about our feral-turned-adopted kitty Binx, too. While somewhat rehabilitated, our little wild boy still is skeptical of being picked up and coming indoors. We have a nice kitty house for him with straw and a bed, and we are thankful he is doing well. This weather has been so worrisome for outside animals this winter…oh, spring…you are out there somewhere….right?!

    I am so glad the ferals made it. I’m afraid that I can’t figure out what “TNR” stands for. I’m sure I’ll figure out when you actually do it!

    SO happy the ferals you care for are safe this winter. I can’t stop thinking about all of the homeless animals or ones with irresponsible owners and out sub zero temps that have lasted weeks. very sad.

    We don’t have strays here that I know of, but I’m sure there are plenty around our town.

    What excellent news. That is truly something for which to give thanks. Like you, we hope the super cold temps are over. We are going to have the low teens again tonight and tomorrow night. After some minuses, we guess we won’t complain, but we know our mom will continue to do so! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
