Arrival Story:
In July of 2008, my friend asked me to help her trap a feral mother cat and her five kittens. The mother cat was spayed and returned to the yard where she lived. The kittens came to my husband's and my house. I tamed one of the kittens right away and she went to a forever home; the four remaining kittens went to live with a more experienced feral handler. She kept them for two months but was unable to socialize them enough for adoption. I took them back into my home. Marmelade showed promise from the beginning. He was curious about me. The rest of the kittens hid, but Marmelade would draw closer and closer as time went on. Often I would sit using my laptop in the room and Marmelade would come and sniff at it. One day, he let me touch his nose. I was so happy! Then as time went on, he came close enough for me to pet him. He made a breakthrough after that and allowed me to touch him all over. A week later, my husband and I decided that Marmelade was tame enough to be allowed to come out into the rest of our house and meet our other cats. After a little bit of hissing, he felt comfortable with them. On October 30, 2008 we decided to officially adopt Marmelade!

Marmelade is brother to Midge, adopted brother to Pippin, Sebastian and Indiana Jones, and adopted brother to Tigger Angel and Bob Angel.

Formerly Feral

My Foster Family!

Hi Furriends,

I wanted to let you know that my mom and dad are fostering a furfamily. The mama cat's name is Snow White and she has four feral kittens...Gizmo, Stripe, Boogie and Greyson. Greyson is a girl and the other three are boys. They are about 14 - 16 weeks old. So far Boogie and Greyson are the friendliest, followed by Stripe. Little Gizmo is still hiding.

Snow White brought her kittens to our yard about four weeks ago. Mom and Dad had her spayed almost two weeks ago and brought her and her kittens into our home. They are residing in our spare bathroom. I would love to play with them but Mom says no, since they were outdoor kitties and we don't know their health status yet.

Some of you might remember that my sister Midge and I were ferals about the same age as Boogie and his fursiblings when Mom and Dad started the socialization process with us, so we have hopes for this family of ferals! My brother Indiana Jones was also a feral.

Please visit our foster kitties' page and meet them!

Thank you furriends,

Love Marmelade


My Happy Birthday!

Our new little brofur is arriving today!

Hi Friends,

I am getting a new brofur today! He is nine weeks old. Mom and Dad are picking him up from Fat Kitty City (the rescue my mom volunteers for) today at noon.

Here's what we know about him from his foster mom: he is a Tuxedo Manx/DSH mix and was born feral, but he is coming along nicely in his socialization process. He is the leader of his litter; he likes to boss his brothers around! MOL He was the first to use the litter box in his foster mom's home; he taught his brothers how to use it too.

He doesn't have a name yet, maybe you can help? We'd love to hear suggestions.

Here is his Catster number: 1297093
