Arrival Story: There was a feral cat colony in my neighborhood where Bogie and his sisters were born. Unfortunately, most of the colony was trapped and killed. A few escaped, though. With the land owners permission I was able to trap, neuter, release, and feed the cats who remained . Bogie and his sisters were the only kittens and they were horribly sick . I caught them (not easy; they were hiding in a wood pile!), took them home and cared for them. In a couple of months they were healthy, friendly, wonderful kittens. I couldn't find good homes for them because people were uneasy of them having been feral, so I kept all four of them. I couldn't keep them inside because at that time I already had 3 dogs and 3 cats inside. My husband and brother in law built an very nice outdoor shelter for them on my back porch that I heated in the winter and they seemed to love it. Bogie is the only one of the litter left and is now an indoor kitty. He is a very affectionate cat and loves to be pet. He was very vocal when living outdoors, but is quiet now that he is an indoor kitty. Bogie and his sisters had a very special way of communicating. It wasn't like a normal "meow", it sounded more like a "kitty bark". They would call to one another if they got out of each others sight, like their larger cousins. When Bogie was an outdoor cat he would go hide in the tall grass behind our house. Whenever I called him, he would cry very loud and he would continue to cry till he got all the way home. It is a very unique sound. He answered me every time. His sisters names were Birdie, Tessa, and Tinker. They are greatly missed.
