A Feral Conversation Pt. 2

Mommy, mommy! Pick me up mommy, me wants to sit in yous lap. (Dezi gets up in mommy’s lap and settle’s in and lays down) Mommy, will you tell me more about da feral kitties?

Yes dear I will.. What do you say we brush your beautiful fur while I tell you the story?

Do we have to mommy?

Yes Dezi we do.

Okay, but me wants extwa tweats after. You was gunna tell me how da ferals survive and how we can help.

Yes dear I was. And we’ll see about those extra treats. That’s something the feral kitties don’t get, so you need to be thankful you do. Anyways, as I told you yesterday most ferals never get to know what a forever home with love and security is. And in the past their only hope was to live a short life, reproducing and fighting and going hungry day in and day out.

Dat’s just pawful mommy. Why do hoomans have to be so mean?

I don’t know my love. But not all humans are. Today there are a lot of feral colonies that are thriving. They have good humans looking after them. And these people make sure there is food and water and even sometimes shelters available for the times when it’s too cold or too hot. They work tirelessly to get the kitties in the colony spayed and neutered so they can quit having more and more babies. And they find those that can be part of a family and help them find a forever home off the streets. You know your friend Marg?

Oh yes mommy we luv Ms. Marg and all hers kitties and udder animals too.

Borrowed from Marg's Animals.  Little Bit is one of the lucky ferals now living the good life inside his forever home.

Yes we do Dezi. Well a lot of Ms. Margs kitties were and are feral.

Me didn’t wealize dat mommy. they all seem so pawtastic.

They are Dezi. Being feral doesn’t mean the kitty is bad, it just means that they’re afraid. There are a lot of feral kitties finding homes these days because of the wonderful people that work with them. You can recognize a “kept colony” by the tipped ears. When they get one altered, the doctor cuts a little tip of the ear while they’re sedated so that everyone knows this kitty can’t make or have babies and belongs to a colony. It doesn’t hurt the kitty at all, and it’s a sign to all who see it. The kitties are then returned to their colony to live out their lives. This is called TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) A lot of the people that take care of these colonies do it on their own. Some have formed rescues and have helpers. And for those of us who don’t have a colony near by we can help educate people about the ferals in their community. And donate. They can always use food and supplies and money. Altho’ a lot of vets will volunteer their time to work with the ferals, a lot of them still charge at least a small fee.

Is dat why yous told our town to chill and to twap da ferals in da community?

dw Lexi3960p

Yes honey it was. Unfortunately our community is very backward and they aren’t open to having a feral colony here, but that doesn’t mean we stop educating them. We keep trying to teach them every chance we get. And we try to educate people on how to be better pet parents so that the kitties don’t end up outside in the first place.

What did they do wiff those kitties mommy?

Well sweety I’m not sure, but I imagine it didn’t turn out well. No kitty belongs in a shelter cage, but ferals really don’t stand a chance of being adopted from a shelter.

Dat makes me so sad mommy. Me wishes every kitty kuld have a home wiff luv like me and sissy have.

I do too Dezi, but until people stand up and take responsibility for the animals in their lives there will always be the need for shelters and rescues and volunteers. These are just a few of the organiztions near us. Feral Friends, Ft. Worth Ferals, and here’s one at a local university. SMU Ferals If you are looking for a feral group in your area or need help with a feral colony of your own, please click here and choose your state to find the nearest organization. And remember, rescues and shelters always need donations. You my dear and your sister need to eat everyday and so do the ferals.

About Deziz World

My name is Deztinee. I am a Ragdoll. I was born 11/1/2009. I am a service cat along with my sisfur RaenaBelle, also a Ragdoll, for our disabled human mommy. My sisfur Raena was born 4/21/2016. In March of 2016, mommy and I had to say goodbye to my mentor Alexandra (Lexi), a black tabby born 4/29/1999. This blog is about our daily life from the kitty's point of view. We were both rescued from bad situations and our mommy raised us and trained us to be service cats. I want this blog to be interactive and get to know all of you, so comment and visit often. I will also offer advice, training tips and education when possible.
