A fabulous quote to help everyone soar through their Friday. What my #coffee says to me August 10 :) Happy Friday to all and remember to sing your song!

Dear Friends,
As many of you know I have been the sole caretaker for a feral cat colony for the past 3 1/2 years. 
I am on a disability pension due to my spinal injury in 2006.
Last month I became a certified TNR cat colony care taker at the Humane Society, and my colony is registered.
I am appealing to anyone who has funds and would like to help me buy the food these cats need, as well as help me pay for their medical needs and  vet expenses.
My friends, you know that I would never ask you for financial help if I did not absolutely need to.
Unfortunately now I need to. I just cannot afford to continue to buy their food on my own.
I will never turn my back on these cats, they are my 'babies' & we are a 'family'.
I am the only person who has cared enough to bother to give them food & shelter.
Thank you for your kindness & your help.
my love & Light to you always

Update > I have created my first ever fund raiser thanks to Donna M. at Alley Cat Rescue Group if you care2 join.

here's the link for my fundraiser.

Hungry Feral Cats Need Help

Pay Pal link to Donate is

Thank you from Grey, Patches 2, Nosie, Marmalade, Smokey, Riley & Darling.
3 new cats came to the colony the week of September 11th.
Out of the 12 cats that were in the colony last year, I rehomed
Emmy ( our little pride & joy ) and Hooligans.
Sadly, Cuddles crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He had stage 4 FELV/AIDS. 
I was not aware how prevalent this disease is amongst the feral male population.

I have tried to provide regular updates on my Fundraising page & pictures in the gallery to enjoy.

Update January 18, 2015
I am posting on Pinterest to add more information about each cat
in the colony.  Enjoy the 'who's who'  in my feral colony !



A special note of appreciation to Debbie W. for tweeting on Twitter & to Dandelion for a special mention in Kim's appeal for Danica.
And to everyone sharing on fb & Care2 of course,
Thank you so very much.

Cuddles has crossed the Rainbow Bridge on March 9, 2015

                      .... from feral to family ....
you were the first to greet me as i came down the path to the feral colony each day and you were the last to say 'until tomorrow' just to get in more cuddles ... so until 'tomorrow' precious purr baby all my love & Light . You are gone but never forgotten my Cuddles.


Today, Friday, September 18, 2015 my dear purr baby Grey crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Grey was one of my original "6 pack" when I started the feral colony almost 4 years ago. His gentle spirit was always first to greet me, especially after Cuddles crossed the Rainbow Bridge just last March 9th.
We had this 'thing' ... his way of touching ... I would lower my head and he would rub his face against my headband and purr........ now, the memory of our moments together, like those of Cuddles and all the purr babies I have loved and surrendered my heart and soul to in death, are embedded in every aspect of my being. Grey was alone in his death, but as a feral cat unwanted by other, he knew he was loved and cared for by me everyday. Be free my sweet purr baby... someday we will find each other again ;(

Welcoming  gentle little emmy, one yr. old, a feral kitty rescued from my colony. She had 3 kittens who died last Spring. I never thought I would be her Mom, but I promised to help her find her forever home. I am so humbled it is with me & my family. Jewel has a little sister now, yay ! Her ear is tipped indicating the TNR spay process was completed. Precious little emmy you are safe now & forever loved !

Welcoming Jewel ~ Adopted at the Humane Society on June 18, 2013

Our sweet little furbaby girl is a year old & a 'bit' !
sweet dreams baby

Plummie i know you helped Jewel find us ! I just pray we may be worthy of her love. We will try our very best.

You are in my ~ our hearts every day Plummie ~ Forever

My beloved Plummie died today Sunday, May 19, 2013 from a collapsed lung. Her sudden illness & 'passing' has left an emptiness in my soul that only those who have experienced the same can understand. It was only 1 short year ago that I rescued her in the park ( read Plummie's story).
She gave me her sweet gentle unconditional love for which I am eternally thankful for. My heart aches badly right now knowing that her precious life has been taken so soon. She has crossed the Rainbow Bridge to be with all our beloved fur angels. Plummie's love & Light was truly a Divine gift from God after our beloved Kismet ~ Kizzy passed just a few short months before , after 15 years.
I need time right now ... time to 'catch my breath' ... time to appreciate all that her life meant to me in life ... time to stay silent and 'be' ... just for awhile ....... until we meet again may you be free of suffering and dance in the Light forever  . . . . . . .

you can light a candle for Plummie if you wish @
this Candle group was created by my dear buddy Nancy C. and i am truly grateful for her compassion & kindness .

 my little girl - my fur Angel

it only took a minute for me to fall in love with you my precious Plummie ... if only we humans would just take the time to open our hearts to the adandoned ones ...
i did and you changed my life forever. I will honor your Light and love always.
Rest in Peace . Ani Ahavti, Shalom Aleichem

My Kismet ~ Kizzy has crossed the Rainbow Bridge today December 10, 2011 ~ my precious little love we are ONE FOREVER in the LIGHT ~
i honor all that we shared together in life & i am thankful for the happiness that fills my emptiness ~ i know in time the sadness will be healed ~ shalom aleichem dearest Kismet ~ your 'Destiny' has come full circle ~ ani ahavti ~

Thank You!

"Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution.

Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages."
Taking action to create world peace is essential, but lasting peace must start from the inside out, in the heart of every individual. Only when inner-peace becomes a reality for each one of us, can there be lasting peace on the outside.

- Thomas Edison, American inventor.


Healing Prayers for All

World leaders disagree on so many fronts. Turmoil rages on in Iraq. Civil war is ravaging regions like Darfur. Now more than ever we need peace.

Prem Rawat, internationally recognized as an authority on the topic of inner-peace, recently said "People say in this world there needs to be peace .... I say in YOUR WORLD there needs to be peace."

 He says that true peace is not just the absence of violence.

Rather, peace is a feeling present in each one of us, and he can help people discover it for themselves.

The UNESCO constitution states, "Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defence of peace must be constructed."
Make a personal commitment to find peace now - starting from the inside.

World peace begins with creating inner peace and joy. Today, I make a personal commitment to do at least one thing to discover peace within my own life.
