Thankful Thursday Blog Hop:  Feral Caretakers

thankful thursday blog hop brian 04072022

Howdy gang, thanks for stopping by for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  I am always thankful to each of you for joining us!  Each and every Thursday we share the things for which we are most thankful and we always enjoy reading all of the things you are thankful for too. If you are new to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we really do get excited when new blogger pals join us!

Today I’m thankful for all of those who care for feral kitties, you know who you are and we thank you.  Feral kitties are also know as community cats, because they belong to the entire community.  I’ve seen more and more stories lately about feral caretakers and it really is nice to see so many stepping up for them.

Of course they ferals deserve the care.  After you have cared for the ferals for a while they become like family.  You get to see each individual personality and the interactions within their community.  It’s amazing how well they can get along and how they protect each other when the need arises.  So thank you feral caretakers, we appreciate all that you do.

Okay, that’s it for today, what are you thankful for today? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

If you feed ’em, fix ’em!

Amen. 😀 I was upset to learn that Grecians tend not to spay or neuter any cats. ~sigh~ God bless those that help our feral populations.

We’re blessed to work with some feral caretakers through the cat shelter. Some of them have been feeding feral cats for many years, they are passionate and i am grateful they can sometimes snatch small kittens out of the colonies when they trap the mamas and if they’re young enough, tame them and find them good homes.

siempre hay que agradecer su gran labor a los que cuidan de los gatitos abandonados. Te mando un beso.

I appreciate the work involved in caring for feral cats; I hope the work includes fixing them so fewer kitties have to live this way! I am thankful for all those who are passionate about any aspect of our world and its beauty, from young climate activists to firefighters who put their lives on the line to farmers using regenerative practices (and of course, those looking after the many animals who are neglected and abused).

we are happy that there a people who take care of ferals… like your furmily who helps our friends in need as much as you can….

Memories of Eric and Flynn

Those who look after ferals do a good job. We have had a cat visiting lately although I have only had brief glimpses of it. We have got a large empty stable where we keep out recycling and food waste bin. I see paw prints on the inside of the bottom stable door where it has jumped in over. I have been putting food there which is gone every morning, and also there are hay bales in the corner so it is a good place to sleep. It may not be feral but just visiting from houses a few fields… Read more »

Brian, you look happy snoozing on that couch even if it is a bit small 🙂
We have not seen any feral cats around, but if we did, we would feed them!

We have two “visiting” cats every morning on our front porch but we know one is NOT feral – they just know where the tastiest breakfast can be found. One of them is our next door neighbor’s cat – she is left out every night and since Ted and I are up early she knows she can stop by. Teddy was a Feral until someone brought him to the shelter where we found him and adopted him.

You all do so much for them. They are fortunate to have you. We have never seen such cats around here. We never really see cats as everyone who has them keeps them in the house. It’s a good thing.

As Madison said above me here, you do so much for them. Its always a treat to get to see a video of them when you post it. I too am grateful for all the people who set up and help the ferals. They deserve it

Well deserved praise for all our feral caregivers. Brian – that is a beautiful picture on your red bed.

we are thankful for all the feral caretakers also, our friend in Savannah has done it for years. Savannah has a really good care plan for ferals and provides food to those who do it for the ferals.

We’re grateful for feral caretakers who tend the too-many colonies, and those that are actually able to socialize some and adopt them out (as in the case of angel Nicki). ♥

Feral Caretakers are the best! I too am so very thankful when I hear about all the amazing, loving work they do. We’re down to just one Feral so not doing the kind of work that those Superheroes do.

thankful when humans take care of the earth and it’s living things… that’s how it should be…. we all take care of each other then none goes without. Love shared. Love in action. Thank you

My human loves the feral family that lives out back. Other than making arrangements for their spays and neuters, she’s not really the caretaker – it’s our neighbor who feeds them. But my human keeps an eye on them and every morning she checks the security cams around the house to see if they have been by.

Yes all of you rock!! Wish I could do it but being in an apartment community (and condos) we would be kicked out. Thankfully we don’t see many cats around here.

Yay! One of our caretakers just passed away and we posted the tribute. They are special peeps and we donate when we can. TW used to feed and take care of feral cats in the ’80s in her hood. Aunt Pauline inspired her. She got them all fixed too even though she had to kidnap the guy upstairs’ cats to fix them. MOL!

More and more people are caring for ferals in my area now, including TNRing them, and I’m so glad they do! We feed two. There are still so many out there. Most of our indoor cats over the years came from the streets or woods. (We always checked to be sure no one had lost them.)

I am grateful for cats, I am grateful for the carers, for our community, and for people like you!

One of my friends moved to Japan not long ago and she said the feral population on the military base she and her husband is on is large. She and a few other wives have started fixing and taking care of the ferals there. She said a lot of times when people get assigned other places they will sometimes just leave their cats behind which I found so sad. I’m glad she’s trying to help.

Yes. That is a noteworthy gratitude post indeed.

I’m also grateful to those who take care of all the stray dog population in India and adopt them instead of bringing home pedigree breeds.

Have a blessed rest of the week, Brian.

Sweet feral kitty’s need a good home. I have two that would have been feral had it not been for the concern of others. Course Lily Bit’s mom was caught as a feral and was going to be fixed when she had a litter. Then Misty’s mom left her and a woman where they were living gave Misty to my sis in law who was more then willing to bottle feed her. I am thankful to all the folks my feline furs came in contact with before I got them cause if someone had not stopped in, they would have… Read more »
