Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Keeping a Ring Around the Ferals

Thankful Thursday Blog Hop - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!

As you know, or most of you do, we’ve got a pretty nice family of ferals that we care for on a daily basis. They, for the most part, are TNR Graduates and are somewhat used to their daily routines. We do like to keep tabs on them and are always looking for ways to do that better.

Probably most of you have seen the commercials for the Ring Doorbell, if not you probably will. They make a doorbell that’s also a wifi video camera so that you can keep tabs on who is at your door anytime from anywhere. Well, they also make a camera called the Stick Up Cam. It’s battery operated, has a Live View and also provides 30 second video clips when motion is detected. Yes, it also sends notifications to your smart phone when there is motion so you know when to look. It’s been most useful when there is a bit of a spat so the peeps know when to go break it up. It’s also been good to know when unauthorized wildlife wants to have some of the feral food before it gets picked up for the night.

The battery lasts us a little over a month before recharging. Also, while it’s not waterproof it is water resistant and we’ve got it mounted where it won’t get a direct soaking from any rain or storms.

Here’s a few of our feral videos for you:

We’re thankful to have another way to keep track of the comings and goings of our feral family. What are you thankful for today? Tell us in the comments and join our Blog Hop and tell everyone.

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    That’s pretty neat!! And a wonderful way to keep track of your feral family . . . it would even be useful to document if someone had been hurt somehow and needed you help! Very cool 😀

    the critters in the cottage xo

    How cool is that? It is great being able to see them. They all seemed to be very friendly to one another.

    That seems like a good idea with all those critters. I’m thankful I still have my cousin’s cat (had him since April). He still surprises me and makes me laugh every day.

    After I type this comment, I’m off to price out one of those! I did NOT know about your colony; cannot wait to hear more! You and I have similar cat families; inside and outside!

    That is so, so cool, Brian! The stick up cam really does let you see what’s going on out there with your awesome feral family. 🙂

    Great picture of you chillaxing, too!

    They are all so cute, I wish I could adopt them all. The black one in the second video looks like my Angel Spooky and even walks like he did.

    How cool to be able to check up on your ferals! We have a few Ring Stick Up cams around our house, and they often capture the neighborhood strays. Also a few skunks, raccoons… and at least twice, bobcats!

  8. easyweimaraner

    that is a super idea… and I loved it to watch the videos… the mama wants one… now… immeowdiately! thanks for a super review and for sharing a fabulous invention!!!

  9. Marg

    That is such a great idea. And what a lot of fun to see the ferals. But the best part is to keep the other animals out of there so they don’t chase the ferals away. This is such a great idea and it was great fun watching the videos. You all have a super day.

  10. The Menagerie Mom

    This is so great! Not only do these cute kitties have somewhere they can get food, shelter, and care, but you monitor them as well! These kitties are so lucky to have you.

  11. Pat Hatt

    That is a great idea indeed, can chase the pesky raccoons away. They all sure look like happy campers too, the first was a little like wtf is this haha

  12. The OP Pack

    You are so good to those ferals. They all look like they are doing well. Mom wants to get one of those ring doorbells or something like it. We think she just wants to spy on what we are doing outside:)

    Now, that is just cool. The ferals all look good and look right at home. Thank you for all you do for them. Mumsy saw a couple of commercials for the Ring and wondered if they work well…we can see that they do. We really enjoyed the videos sweet Brian. We love your tummy up photo and that sweet face of yours. Hugs and nose kisses

    I loved seeing each video. I wondered of Marg noticed those two whose tails were intertwined several times. Just as two of hers did some years ago. I would love a stick up camera. I wonder how much they are and where? I can’t have a Ring one as there is no doorbell here except a wind one.

    We love the movies of your ferals. We’ve seen the doorbell cams advertised, but we’d never heard about those stick up cams. We could sure use one for the wildlife marauders at our house. Mom says she’s going to look into it. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

    You guys are so awesome to take such good care of your ferals. Some of them look very young! Isn’t technology wonderful and useful in so many ways we never even thought of!

  20. Foley Monster, Pocket and River Song

    That is cool. We would only see a bunch of old people walking around.

  21. Cathy Keisha

    What a great invention PLUS it takes clear video. They’ve been putting cameras up all around our community cos the humans are throwing cigarettes out the windows and in the stairwells. Cats are better than humans.

  22. Fraidy Cats!

    Brian, your feral family are a bunch of cuties! the camera looks like it would be a great help in TNR. we’ll have to look into it more too cause it could help our mom for checking up on a feral colony at her workplace.
