Dear Furs and Folks,
Today I've had some special Nine Lives tuna. Mom found I like it, and because I do, I get it when I want it.
Now, today as the sun tries to peek through the clouds, I feel the magick,
which always sends off tiny sparks, descend in earnest. (who's he, anyway?)
I would ask a favor.....
So many have gone to the Bridge....so many furrs. I know their folks are very sad, as is to be expected.
But so many, as the weather many places grows chill-especially in the evening...need homes.
As I watch a tired little feral make his way across the street, mommy holding me, she puts me down gently. 'Wait, Ruffy' she says. She goes to the kitchen and I follow. She takes two cans of food, and puts them in a dish and brings them out to the spot where ferals can eat. There is a colony here, but another lady on the street behind is gravely ill, and her cats have been coming to eat. And there have been two recent 'dumps' who have come as well. We think this is one of them.
I watch Mommy and so does the tired stripped cat. He crouches and waits for her to retreat, then goes to the dish and begins to gulp the food. He eats everything, and then, glances around, and low to the ground, slinks out of sight, down a driveway. But he'll be back later, after dark.
The Rescue lady mommy works with picked up a cat last week who she has with her boarding. He's a Siamese, and has been dumped. He's half blind, he can't see from one eye. He's frightened, but getting better. He may stay with her, as no one seems to want him. He can't get 'shown' because he's not friendly yet, and may never be. Perhaps his last act of courage was to find her.
So...tonight, pet the furs you have. If they have left for the bridge and you are sad, pour the sadness into honor for them...reach out...help a feral who has no one. Adopt the least adoptable. Go to the kill shelter-tell them you want the one next to be put down. Be brave-for at your shoulder unseen stand the Guardians of the Gate, who will immediately shower you with love and blessings and light. You aren't alone, and will never be.
Take up a feral colony, help. Bring food. TNR with others, reach out and breathe in the magick that is cat, that we all are. That the cats who have passed on and turn to gaze back and say 'yes, I've taught you well-dance in the light'
For as the 'Season of Mystery' commences, there is no greater mystery than this:
'You must lose to find, you must feel the loss in order, always to find the immense joy that is ever yet present in a pair of golden eyes in sooty, unkept coat, a fearful stance, a soft hiss that bespeaks uncertainty. For beyond this....for underneath this disguise...is always, and always will be, your beloved.
Love and Light and blessings,

We are tearful reading this as it is so true
Dad just saved a little scrap. His mother was wise enough to bring him to the porch of the lady who used to feed the colony but now cannot due to new landlords and mean neighbors. He almost died. Dad thinks he did but our purrs brought him back. Weeks later he is bright and happy and playful.
His bothers were also brought to Dad who gave them love and food and a bath. They are now out being shown for forever homes
We must never give up
We must never stop...
Yes we cannot save them all, but, those we do save are very special and can pass the word on
To never give up
To never stop
Stop by my diary for the link to our Party tomorrow
See you there
Makes us so sad there are so many cats and dogs with no homes.
Currently MC is feeding a black mamacat and her two black kittens. MC took two boys in last year but we don't have any more room at the MC Inn. The black cats will not let her touch them.
We wish all the kitties out there could have homes.
I have had a few join the colony, and was able to place the kitten. I am trying to find somewhere for the latest boy. He seems about 1 year, and is so very friendly. He comes to eat everyday, and gets his pets, next week he will go in for TNR. I hope he has a chip, but if not he at least gets some love. I have ads out & have been looking, but no one seems to have lost him - which is a shame. But I am doing the best I can.
