We have six feral rescue cats at our house. Malcolm and Zoe were born under a dumpster behind a Home Depot in DC. Quinn was born in a colony in Northern Neck, Virginia and rescued from certain death. Burke, Widget and Loki are all home-grown ferals, right from our own backyard. And speaking of home-grown ferals, we have four in our colony… LB, Blackheart, Mr. Wednesday and Ghost.
All this talk of feral kitties brings me to my charity of the month. Alley Cat Allies is one of the biggest sponsors of TNR (trap, neuter, return) when it comes to feral cat colonies. They offer training and support to people with feral populations, and lobby for protection of cats. Good cause, good people.
