Time to celebrate National Feral Cat Day
Need a cure for the Monday blues? Our photo feature is here to help provide a brief diversion from your workday routine with a small dose of squee, wow and awwww. Enjoy!
You’ve probably seen them in the shadows, but when National Feral Cat Day is celebrated on October 16, it will be a day for community cats to shine. It’s a way to raise awareness about free-roaming felines and promote trap-neuter-return (TNR), the only humane way of reducing outdoor cat populations. And it’s a way to prevent them from needlessly dying in shelters. Community cats can live happy, healthy and fulfilling lives, as you can see from the photos below.
Blue eyes, brown seal point markings and green grass — I’m one Technicolor kitty.
Keep looking! I know I heard a can opener.
Oranges may be good for people, but we much prefer kibble.
I don’t know, I’m on the fence about kibble versus canned.
What do you mean I don’t camouflage?
Yeah, just leave the food right there.
I’m here to read your meter.
Our cup (or rather our bowl) runneth over.
Yeah, that’s the spot.
Yeah right — like I’m gonna believe there’s a reindeer behind me.
How do I take a selfie on this thing?
Roll over — you’re snoring.
Here’s my shopping list.
You like my highlights?
Yo buddy, move along. This one is mine.
Exit, stage left.
San Pellegrino, please.
Just me and my shadow.
Thank you for helping take care of me.
