Senior Feral Cat Meets Tiny Felines

Senior Feral Cat Mason with his Tiny Feline Furiends

Whenever I feel bad about being a diabetic cat, I remind myself that I have always had a human to care for me. I never had to live outside and fend for myself, and I always knew where my noms were coming from. I cannot imagine what it would be like to have to worry about where my noms were coming from, or where to sleep, or whether an evil human was going to hurt me.

Mason can tell us all about that. You see, this senior feline, who is being cared for by Tiny Kittens, lived a long life out on the streets. He has many battle scars to prove it. Mason also suffers from kidney disease. Add to that a badly injured foot, and several abscessed teeth, and poor Mason is not in good shape. To help Mason, Tiny Kittens decided to bring him in so that he could enjoy the rest of his life in comfort.

Mason, of course, is grateful for the help. But he is still quite fierce! He happily plays with wand toys, but as soon as a human tries to reach in to pet him, he will hiss and swat at that human.

But one day, the humans caring for Mason brought in some foster kittens. And soon, Mason let down his guard and showed his soft side. He became good furiends with the tiny felines, and allowed them to snuggle and play with him. Furiends, this feline who is so fierce with humans allows the kittens to cuddle up with him when they sleep!

This, furiends, is proof that even senior feral cats like Mason have a soft side. You humans may not get to see it. It may only be shown to tiny felines who need help. But it is there, in every single cat. And I am glad that Tiny Felines helped Mason show it!



Snow Bengal Gets to Keep Her Kittens

Furiends who have been following my stories for a while remember that I had a snow bengal named Marley as a sisfur. She sadly left us in the summer of 2015. Poor Marley did not have an easy life, and even when she got here she did not really like interacting with me and Jacey. But we gave her as good of a life as we could for the time she was here.

Marley lived a very good life compared to one of her fellow snow bengals. This snow bengal lived with an irresponsible breeder who only cared about how many kittens she could produce. Felicity was suffering from anxiety, fleas, tapeworms, ear mites, an upper respiratory infection, and a uterine infection when the cat rescue group Tiny Kittens rescued her.

And she was also pregnant with two kittens. All of her health problems put the lives of her kittens at risk. Fortunately for Felicity and her kittens, the white coated humans at the cat rescue stepped in to treat her. She was able to recover and soon, she gave birth to two tiny felines.

Felicity knew exactly want to do when her kittens were born. Being sick did not stop her from being a very good mother. She nursed them, cared for them, and protected them. She knew what to do because she raised so many kittens before. But this time, things turned out much better.

In the best news of all, furiends, Felicity will get to stay with her tiny felines. A kind human fell in love with the three of them. Now, the two tiny felines, Felix and Keiko, will not be taken away from Felicity like so many others. They will get to stay with their mother and live their lives together. We have a very happy cat rescue story, furiends!

I hope the kind human who is doing this knows what they are getting into. Having three bengals in the home can be a handful. Hopefully, Felicity will teach them how to behave. But only to a point. Having bengals in the home is supposed to be an adventure for you humans!

You can learn more about Felicity’s adventures with her kittens on their Facebook page.

Very Tiny Feline Saved by Cat Rescue

I love to share stories about tiny felines who get rescued. And when I tell you about a tiny feline, usually it is a young cat, regardless of its size.

But today, I want to share with you the story of a truly tiny feline. Tiny Kittens is a cat rescue group that helps many felines in the Vancouver, British Columbia area. In addition to helping feral colonies, they signed up over 1,000 people to become advocates for spaying and neutering felines and over 700 people to help feral cats. So when they learned about a feral colony needing help, this cat rescue group rushed in.

However, even though these kind humans have saved many felines, they never saved a feline as tiny as the one I will tell you about. His name is Nano. And he is truly a tiny feline. He weighs just 146 grams, or 5.2 ounces. Furiends, Nano is a truly tiny feline!

Nano and the rest of his litter were five weeks old when Tiny Kittens came to help them. And while there are many cases of felines being the runt of the litter, his case was extreme. He is only about one quarter the size of his brofurs!

The cat rescue group rushed Nano to the humans in white coats after discovering him. They bathed him and treated him for anemia and fleas. Still, Tiny Kittens did not know if Nano was going to make it.

That did not stop Tiny Kittens from committing to making sure Nano received the care he needed. All of the kittens needed medical attention, but he needed more. And this cat rescue group gave it to him. He spent more time than his siblings did nursing with his mother so that he could get some extra noms.

The extra attention and care Nano received worked. He is doing much better now! Nano is much more energetic and eats regularly. And most importantly, Nano shows how grateful he is by showering the kind humans at Tiny Kittens with lots of affection.

Before they can be adopted, Nano and his siblings face more treatment from the humans in white coats. But they have already come a long way thanks to the efforts of a very dedicated cat rescue organization.
