Darling resting on the pathway leading into the colony from the hillside going down to the ravine. This is Darling one of my feral cats in my feral colony who is very sick. I took him to the Humane Society for medical care. Normally they don't take "ferals" but Darling was quiet and allowed handling. Please send Darling your love & Light, prayers & healing thoughts. Thank you so much (posted August 4, 2017 )

Update on Darling as of August 27th, 2017

Darling has recovered & will receive dental surgery & be neutered soon. He has responded beautifully & will be placed in the adoption room shortly after he has recovered. My "little guy" after 5 years will soon have his forever family! I am so thankful to have been part of Darling's amazing journey... prayers answered!

Darling was adopted n September 1st 2017 by his very special forever family. My heart is at peace

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 6 years. 
I am on a disability pension due to my spinal injury in 2006 resulting from an accident.

I am a certified cat colony caretaker through the Humane Society, and my colony is registered.
I am appealing to anyone who has funds and would like to help me buy their food, 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'.

Thank you for your kindness & your help.
my love & Light to you always

Updated September 2018 

Out of the 12 cats that were in the colony last year, I re-homed
emmy, now our purrecious pride & joy, Hooligans & Marmalade.

'my sweet boy' Smokey was hit by a car on Friday, July 28, 2017 & after assessing his injuries at the vet, sadly crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He was one of my 'original 6 pack' :(

 Patches2 crossed the Rainbow Bridge on March 9, 2016 due to kidney failure. She was one of my 'original 6 pack' :(
My sweet Grey crossed  the Rainbow Bridge on September 18,
2015. He had a respiratory infection/herpes also rampant amongst feral cats. Grey was one of my 'original 6 pack' :(

Sadly, Cuddles crossed the Rainbow Bridge on March 9,2015. 
He had stage 4 FIV/AIDS. My fluffy little love was also one of
my 'original 6 pack' :(

I share regular updates on my Fundraising page & pictures in the gallery to enjoy.

I also share pictures on Pinterest to add more information about each cat in the colony.  Enjoy the 'who's who'  in my feral colony !

 Please don't hesitate to ask for more information if you wish.
 Thank you so much.
A special note of appreciation to Sheryl for a special mention in Kim's appeal for Danica & to everyone sharing on fb & Care2 of course.
Thank you so very much.

 Patches2 crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Wednesday, March 9 2016. She was one of my original '6' & will be missed~always in my heart sweet gentle little feral  ~ you were so loved by me ~ 

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.

Cuddles was a gentle sweet natured loveable soul in a cats body who i cared for, for 3 years. He recently tested + for FIV/AIDS. Sadly he has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on March 9,2015.  Precious purr baby we are one in the Light .. may your spirit run free now! Rest in Peace 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 ;(

Today, Friday, September 18, 2015 my dear purr baby Grey crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Grey was one of my original

                  Crossed the Rainbow Bridge

my precious purr babe, Smokey was hit by a car last Friday, July 28, 2017
i took him to the Humane Society.. both pelvic bones were fractured in several places.
 "my boy" had to be euthanized. Smokey was one of the first feral cats i had ever known. he came every day to be fed & i gave him his name. my 'original 6' pack is now only 4 :(

   after all these years with him there is that empty space once again of loss.
   it's been my lifelong companion it seems. 
   In truth i know our connection is never lost!
   we will be together again, reunited with all the other loves of my life.

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 !

Presenting emmy ! She was one of the feral cats in my colony, only a year old, who I trapped ( see other photo ).Following her recovery, I adopted her into our family. Her left ear has been 'tipped' indicating she has completed the TNR = trap neuter release program, which is an international sign for all cats.

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 & i will miss our purrecious Plummie.
 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  
 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!
