Mancat Monday: Our Pre-Spring has Pre-Sprung

99999
I smell Sping, really, I do smell spring and it’s got to be just around the corner.  Well, I can’t see the corner from my windows but I do know there is  a corner out there. Unfortunately that means kitten season is here and we always get a little nervous wondering if there will be any wee arrivals.  We’ve done the TNR thing with so many of the feral kitties but that pretty Zelda is the elusive one.

Hey, speaking of ferals, they sure have been showing up, even ones who haven’t been here on a regular basis.  We don’t know if someone else has been feeding them and then moved or they quit putting food out, but there is a big bunch here just about every evening.  Dad has gone from two feedings each evening to three feedings.  I think Dad is going to have to look into getting a second feeding station because it looks to be pretty darn crowded out there at meal time.

For those of you who deal with ferals, don’t you just love it when a feral turns out to be a friendly?  YES!  That’s the best and I’m featuring one such kitty on #OptToAdopt day tomorrow, her name is Mekisha.

Oh, I was talking about Spring though and got sidetracked talking about the ferals.  The weatherguesses say we’re going to have temperatures in or around the 70s for the week. So we’re really hopeful that the corner really has been turned.  Everyone around these parts seem to be pretty tired of the cold and wet stuff, especially when they show up together.

Have a fun week everyone and I’ll see y’all soon. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

I admire you so much for caring for the ferals! I wish I could, but there are none downtown here. You are just awesome – I am sure the ferals appreciate all the noms you put out for them.

We had really nice weather over the weekend, and I don’t doubt that it’s headed your way! 🙂

Welcome to springtime! Maybe you need to set up a buffet line for all those ferals?

Sounds like your Inn is getting full there. Wish I was closer so I could help you with the feedings. But I am so glad that they have all found you. We sure are looking forward to these warm temps coming. You all have a great day.

A busy feeding station means a lot of lucky cats who won’t starve while living on their own. Blessings to your Dad! We have only a couple of visiting kitties here which we are 99% sure HAVE homes, but choose to stop by here for a handout and a sunny porch. We love that! They know we keep cat beds on the porch for “day naps” or night naps…..there is one cat who’s always outside at 4AM when Sam and I are out for a walk so we think she sleeps in our enclosed kitty bed on the porch. Can’t… Read more »

Ferals are a law onto their own, aren’t they? We stil hope that Trav wil let #1 pet him one day but we will never force anything on him.

We’ve been getting very strange weather. It’s been mainly sunny today, with the occasional snowfall, and bitter north winds.

Purrs,

That is so nice of you feed the feral cats, they really do deserve to be looked after.
I don’t know if I told you but years ago I adopted a feral kitten. The first few weeks he almost tore my hands to ribbons but gradually became the most affectionate cat I have ever had.

Brian, we are looking froward to meeting the friendly feral. We think your Dad is wonderful for feeding all those ferals. It’s nice to know that they have full bellies because of him 🙂

You have a great dad for feeding all the ferals, Brian. After a very mild winter it has turned cold here. It never got above freezing today and we even had a couple of snow showers. We hardly ever get snow here.

Your dad is a super nice guy. It’s like he runs a “soup kitchen for ferals”. So nice of him.

Paws up to your human for feeding all those ferals. They must be really grateful to have full tummies.

We have not spotted any ferals around where we live in Richmond, but we do know that kitten season started – along with our spring.
The local shelters are inundated and are expecting way more in the next few months!
We hope your daddy does not has to set up another station!

We’re so glad spring has finally sprung for you, Brian. And it’s great the ferals are showing up again.

We fear this nice weather is only hiding some leftover winter before the end of March.

You are so handsome Brian. I do love it when a feral is friendly. Turns out the one in my care now is pretty friendly. He doesn’t love being petted, but he is tolerant.

Great to hear they all survived the winter. Your Dad must spend a lot to do three feedings. TW doesn’t see any of our ferals anymore and she missed them. She hopes they are safe somewhere.

Spring is great, but yes, it does mean kitten season here, too, Brian. Thank you to you and your dad, and your whole family for helping those ferals!

Brian, you have a handsome sniffy face.
It’s wonderful that one of the ferals is friendly. Hopefully she’ll be able to find a home.

Our human loves this look on your face, Brian. Purrs and headbutts from all of us!

Granny remembers her childhood, when she was living in the City of Rotterdam. There were a lot of ferals and she loved to watch them. They were very lucky, because there was a fishmonger in the street, so they got furresh fish daily. We hardly see ferals around were we live now, but if we do, we would feed them too 🙂
There is still no Spring to see around here, it was freezing again last night 🙁 Well, we have to be patient, I guess… Pawkisses for a Happy Day 🙂 <3

We are also having temps in the 70s and our mom has worked in the yard for the last two days. We think it’s supposed to start raining in a day or two. We’ve been enjoying the catio. We sure hope spring is really here, just like you. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
