Tabby Tuesday: I Sure Am Happy to Be Formerly Feral

tabby tuesday simon 11142017 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Hello everyone, welcome to Tabby Tuesday with me Simon, where it’s all floof all of the time.  Seriously, I’ve got the floof and a big tabby tail too.  But I know y’all knew about my tail, it’s a biggie isn’t it?  But I really wasn’t going to discuss floof today, I’m going to chat about being formerly.

I’m sure happy to be what Brother Brian says is formerly feral.  I love most everything about being formerly and being an inside kitty and I know Sister Seal does too.  I spend a fair amount of time looking out the back sliding glass doors watching the outside kitties.  I remember being out there and although I didn’t think so at the time, it’s scary out there.  It’s cold, it’s wet and it’s dark and I don’t want to go back out there.  Nope, not at all.  When the Dad opens the door to take food outside I run the other way.  No way, I’m not taking any chances.

I don’t mind telling you I was a bit upset when I was captured and ended up inside.  Boy was I wrong about that whole inside thing, it’s the best, the absolute best.  There’s plenty of food, it’s cool when the temperature is hot and warm when the temperature is cold.  There is no end to the comfy spots to take a snooze.  Playtime is most fun, especially that red dot thing.  I’m also glad to be a part of that thing called the Blogosphere.

I’m a happy boy, thanks for being my friend and cheering me on!  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

I wish every cat had a nice warm home and comfy spots just like you. Sadly that isn’t true. keep warm and enjoy your comfy spots. They don’t come easy.

You sure have that down right, Simon! Nothing better than being formally adopted to become formerly!

Oh Simon, you lucked out when that Mom and Dad of yours brought you inside to their home and made you feel right at home. Good boy for not trying to get back outside and good thinking too. You all have a terrific Tuesday.

Simon that’s a super duper photo of you and I am SURE that you know by now how very lucky you are to be FORMERLY! I feel that way too……..having a forever home that’s safe and warm and happy is worth ever so much more than any sort of “perceived” freedom. We will both have longer and happier lives in safety…..that’s worth a bazillion bucks my little friend!

Hugs, Teddy

Sure learn that the inside is much better indeed, even if it seems scary. Run when the door opens is wise too.

We’re all three of us formerly ferals, and boy is it better being an inside kitty. I’m so glad you got adopted, and by such a pawsome family. Love your floof!

I don’t know if Bear would’ve been classified as feral when I met him outside, but he certainly didn’t have even the slightest hiccup in adjusting to indoor-only life. I like to think that he was feral with everyone else – but there was something about me that made me different (there was something about him that made him different too). Just goes to show that there’s always hope – and extermination policies regarding ferals are abhorrent and wrong. We’re so glad you came around Simon/Five … it’s been a pleasure to watch you blossom into your glorious self!

Simon! I have to agree! Having been a feral on the streets of Tehran, I am very happy to be an inside cat with my Mom. But I am learning to be on a leash and I do get some catio time, but I too prefer the inside.
By the way, I love that you are a floofy Persian Tabby 0 where I am a Tabby from Persia!

It is a good life to be formerly feral, Simon. it is even better to have the lovely family that you do.

HI Simon! You are so lucky to have such a great mom and dad. And we’re so happy you’re not outside anymore – it’s scary out there for cats. We’re sorry we haven’t been visiting lately.

Simon, you are very lucky to be a formerly feral indoor kitty. And you’re very wise to want to stay indoors where it’s safe and warm.
