Love Changes Tough Feral Cat into Lap Cat

Two Former Feral Cats Have Turned Into Lap Cats

Many of my fellow felines are what you humans call feral cats.  These felines do not like being around humans.  When they encounter you two legged creatures, they may react by hissing or growling in self defense.

These felines have to be tough.  They live on the streets, and they have to be tough in order to find noms, protect themselves, and stay safe around dangerous things like those fast metal boxes with wheels, humans who do not like cats, and predators.

But with love, even the toughest feral cat can turn into a loving feline.  And that is what happened in Fullerton, California.

Two Former Feral Cats Have Turned Into Lap Cats

A human saw a feral cat that would come to eat noms from a neighbor who left food out for it.  When this human came home from work each day, he would see this cat, who was named Shadow, run away from him and hit her head on the railing.  He was not yet a feline fancier, but he did not like seeing the poor cat hurt itself.

To keep Shadow from hurting herself, he started to feed her.  Soon, Shadow learned to trust him and like him.

About a year later, when this human was relaxing at home, in comes this formerly shy feral cat.  She strutted right into his home, and dropped what he thought was a rat on the floor.  Once the animal that was in Shadow’s mouth hit the floor, he saw it was a tiny kitten!

This human thought the former feral cat was looking for a home, but he did not want a pet.  So he chased Shadow and her kitten out of the house.  But then he started to feel bad.  He started to wonder if the poor kitten would make it outside.  And when he saw Shadow feeding without her kitten, he worried that the kitten was dead.

One day, Shadow was meowing very loudly at this human’s door.  He opened the door, and saw Shadow, with her kitten struggling to climb the stairs to the door.  He let them inside, and the former feral cat and her kitten have now become lap cats.

Let’s Help Complete a Cat Rescue Story

There is a happy cat rescue story coming out of Iroquois County, Illinois.  It’s being written by the Iroquois County Animal Rescue, and it features a number of kittens being adopted.  But there is one last part of the story to write, and I hope that you will help them write it.

Iroquois County Animal Rescue was founded in 2008 to help with the mainly domestic animals who needed help after the floods that took place in its area during the early part of 2008.  They’ve expanded and grown, and right now, they have over 100 cats at their facility, and they’re hoping to write happy cat rescue stories for all of them.

Let's help write a happy ending to Penguin's Cat Rescue StoryThey have recently completed most of a very happy cat rescue story.   The Iroquois County Animal Rescue took in a litter of kittens who needed help.  And most of these kittens have been adopted.

But there is one sweet kitten whose cat rescue story has not yet concluded with a furever home.  His name is Penguin, and he is someone we need to help find a home for.  Since all of his siblings have been adopted, this poor boy is at the shelter all by himself.  While he is not in danger like he was before he got to the shelter, he deserves to find a furever home.

Penguin loves to show love to humans.  He loves to play, and give his humans hugs and sandpaper kisses.  This cute kitten has been neutered, dewormed, microchipped, and vaccinated for rabies and distemper.  He is also FIV and FeLV negative.  This four month old kitten definitely deserves a furever home. Help Finish the Cat Rescue Story for Penguin

I know that many of you cannot give him that home.  My human is a human who cannot help write the end of this cat rescue story.  But maybe you can share the story, like I am sharing it with you.

That way, we can all help find a furever home for Penguin and write the last part of a happy cat rescue story.

Kitten Thrown from Pickup Truck Is Rescued

Because diabetic cats like me are felines who need a little break, I am always happy to share the stories of cats who got those breaks.  Jacey did a good job of telling you about three felines who got a lucky break in life.  It is no surprise that she told you the story well, because she loves to talk.  But when she shares good stories like that, I do not mind listening to her.

Today I want to share with you a story of how a cruel human thought he could just dispose of a tiny little kitten.  But as Treasure showed, many humans know we felines are not garbage, and they will take the necessary steps to protect us.

A tiny five week old kitten was tossed from a pickup truck into traffic in Phoenix.  Fortunately for him, a kind human saw this happen, and did something about it.  This human saw the kitten tossed out of a pickup truck at the intersection of 43rd and Bell in Phoenix.  She was not about to allow a defenseless kitten get crushed by traffic, so she called the Arizona Humane Society, and they quickly dispatched help for the kitten.

Bagheera the Diabetic Cat is Glad this Kitten is Safe!The human who runs the Arizona Humane Society said that the kitten was taken back to their facilities, and humans in white coats checked him to make sure he was okay.  “He’s ready to explore and love and cuddle, he’s just the cutest little thing.”  She added, though, that the kitten was “very lucky to be alive and quite the trooper, that’s for sure.”

“I’m just surprised how humans treat animals sometimes. Something so innocent, so little, so defenseless and to treat them like that just breaks my heart.”  Well, this little kitten, while he is defenseless and little, will get the last laugh.  He has already found a foster home.


This kitten is not a special needs cat because he’s not a diabetic cat like me, nor was he harmed.  But just like a special needs cat, he needed a break.  And he got one, because a human cared enough to help him.
