FORMERLY FERAL FRIDAY

(Mica Minnie Moo)
I have to talk fast cause the Lady is yammering about some award.  Its been hard to find the room to talk here at Twinkletoes.  There are so many kitties and the Lady is all Blah Blah Blah.  She could go on for weeks without a breath!  But finally!  I wanted to say I've been giving the Lady head bumps and cheek markings.  She smells much better now so I've allowed her to scratch me if shes sitting in a chair and its not too bad, it actually feels sorta good.  She hasn't tried to grab me or bake me in a pie.  I've even rolled on the floor a little.  I don't let her do it if she's standing, and maybe I never will.  I've been snuggling and head bumping at night more than I used to.  Honestly!  I surprise myself!  If it gets to be too much I still jump off the bed for a while, but I come back.

When the Lady says my name, I pretend I don't hear.  She doesn't even get an ear flick.  Maybe she'll get those cricket sounds, you know?  She told me she knew better, then one day I forgot and came over.  I really blew my cover!  I don't know what's gotten into me lately, but she better not expect me to come all the time. I may not feel like it!  I think it made her happy cause she said it was about time.  Silly bean!

The Mom wants to say thank you to all the kitties and moms who have given her advice about her stove and how to post the award, among other things.  She figured posting the award wasn't too hard, but wasn't sure how to do it.  The other day Cat Wisdom 101 gave us the award which we appreciate and feel honored to have.  There are many kind and sweet people in CB, so it was difficult to know who to pass it on to.  There are so many worthy people!  The Mom picked 2 people who have unselfishly helped kitties in need.  The first person is Marg who, without a second thought, took in Maggie & Mahoney, and would have taken on the rest of the family if it had been possible.  The second person is Lucy's Mom.  She took in Annie knowing she would require expensive surgery.  Many people would never have considered helping an animal like Annie.  There was no time for Annie, Lucy and her Mom to develop an emotional bond or even much of a relationship.  Both of these women are motivated by the bigness of their hearts and they should be an inspiration to us all.  They are to me!

It's our hope that more ferals become 'formerly feral.

Our greatest wish is that no cat (or other animal) should be without a furever home.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Don't listen to Scouty, Minnie, he's a crazypants. Scritching feels GREAT, and Mom-lubbins are the best around!
