WOW. What a day we've had today! First, Team Kinks went to their forever home, then we saw Ramona with a happy tail in the forest, and now...

After 250 days with us, Sable left this afternoon to go to a foster home... and has just officially been adopted instead!!! Follow her (along with her Happy Forest friends Quinn Bunny and Macey) at From Hisses to Kisses. Read the awesome announcement that made our day: bit.ly/2MjYt93 <3

Awhile back, we had posted a message in our private adopters group asking if anyone would consider fostering one of our special needs ferals, since we seemed to be accumulating them at HQ. When Trish said she was considering fostering Sable, we were all thrilled. None of us wanted to pressure her, so we only ever referred to it as a fostering situation, but we all were secretly hoping she would fall in love with Sable and eventually want to adopt her... :D

It's such a relief when our babies get upgraded from life at TK to life in a home with a family of their own. Although we do have a team of wonderful snugglers who make each cat's stay as home-like as possible, it's just not the same as having a forever family of their own!

We've had 12 cats and kittens go to their homes this week (5 Harvies went to an awesome barn thanks to trapper Mona, Chloe, Huggins, Ribsy, Arthur, Avory, Ray, Sable), and 2 returned to their forest home (Ramona, Billings).

Thanks to the ever-spectacular Gwen for spending her afternoon at our Happy Forest feeding station and getting some great footage of Ramona stopping by for a snack, greeting her friends with a happy tail! Billings was there too (which is not a surprise because he's almost always there).

We were thrilled to see Ramona there so soon after her return, out in the open and eating with the human nearby. We didn't know if she would show up right away, because she did not come to our feeding station on a daily basis prior to her time in our care.

It is also interesting to observe how comfortable Ramona is surrounded by forest and the other cats, and to see her demeanor change when she hears/sees the slightest human sounds and movement.

Ramona and Billings got to return to their home in the Happy Forest today, where they will continue to receive medical care, shelter, playtime and food every single day.

More than 40 of their family and friends showed up to welcome them home, and they both seemed thrilled to be back.

Ramona waited until I moved out of sight to leave her crate and scamper off, and her pal Magda provided a diversion and blocked the camera so no one would see her go. It’s ok, though, because she came back about a half hour later with Billings for some snacks. I stayed for several hours to make sure everyone looked good.

We will all really miss Ramona at HQ, but are so happy she can feel safe and free again. She deserves the best life possible, and we have a responsibility to do everything in our power to give that to her…. on HER terms.

And while we do respect her terms, we will also do everything in our power to convince her that life with humans isn’t so bad after all, in hopes that she might be happy coming back in someday and finding a home. This has happened with several feral adults at the Happy Forest, who responded over time to playtime and feeding with our awesome feeding station volunteers.

This video shows techniques we use for handling feral cats safely, and in a way that minimizes their stress while allowing us to examine and treat them. It is un-edited, so you can see the whole intake from start to finish, in all of its awkward splendor.

We hope posting this will be informative and help others feel more confident working with ferals.

You will see we don't use gloves or protective clothing, but when we first started working with ferals we did. We constantly push ourselves to try new approaches, and as a result, we have become pretty confident interacting with even the most intimidating of ferals.

Chapel is the star of this intake, in for a mouth check and being treated for ear infections. He weighs 7.21kg (almost 16 pounds) and is at least 5 years old. He was neutered in 2015, and has been trapped at least three times since then for vaccines, deworming, DNA swabbing, dental check, etc. He has not become receptive to humans in the time we have known him.

We have cataloged 250+ cats in his feral colony, adopted 122 of them into loving homes, and spayed/neutered 91% and counting. We provide daily feeding, socialization, playtime and provide medical/dental care when needed.

Organizations like Project Cat and PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) trap and kill feral cats. They advocate *against* Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR): bit.ly/2tljdnk

Their actions tell the world feral cats are disposable. They reinforce perceptions that feral cats are not worth spaying, neutering or compassionate care. Euthanasia doesn't erase the hardships these cats may have already endured, it only ensures they will never experience joy.

To solve cat overpopulation, we must change the narrative about feral cats. Instead of reinforcing the belief that feral cats are disposable, let's start talking about how remarkable they are, so more people will care.

We tell the stories of our ferals to change perceptions and prove they have value. As people's perceptions change, their compassion, connection and desire to take action grows.

Their actions result in more spaying and neutering, more volunteers, more fosters, more adopters, more advocates, more resources and more support within communities.

If you'd like to be a part of the humane solution, join or start a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) effort in your community. Volunteer, donate, foster, adopt and become an advocate for feral cats.

Please make sure you research rescue organizations working with feral cats, and support those whose work sends the message that feral cats have value.

It's heartbreaking to think about everything we would have missed out on if PETA or Project Cat had been the ones trapping the ferals in this video:

Grandpa Mason and his kittens
Cassidy the TinyTuxies miracle kitten
With a Little Hope, Faith & Charity
Calvin's Quartet
Skye the Sink Cat

And the MANY more we've helped since then: TinyKittens.com/ferals/adopted

Every day, we collect more and more proof that feral cats can live happy, healthy lives with humans... and in the wild: bit.ly/2vLxZC5

Coridan had 10 teeth extracted today during his dental surgery, and is recovering well! 3 teeth were abscessed, so he should be feeling much better very soon. Bloodwork shows he is anemic and has some borderline kidney values, but he also has been having bloody diarrhea plus his mouth inflammation which could be a factor.

We will continue treating aggressively for parasites and add some antibiotics that should reduce inflammation and irritation in his bowels.

We will re-check Shelby and Coridan's bloodwork in two weeks.

Exciting mews! Lorie, one of our awesome trappers/feeding station volunteers, managed to trap Sigma (mama of our TinyTuxies #MiracleKitten) today! She is now in the Kidney room with Chapel, Coridan, Billings, Chloe, Ramona, Shelby and Sable.

We were shocked to discover she only has about three teeth - one upper canine and two lower molars that we could see for sure. Her gums where there are no teeth are much healthier than they would be if she had teeth... so that's one positive thing.

She has clearly managed to adapt and survive quite well without teeth, which is so interesting to see. She will go to Mountain View Veterinary Hospital next week for a dental and rads to see if we can figure out what happened, and if she needs ongoing medical care.

Since she has been doing so well without teeth and wants nothing to do with humans, we are hopeful she will be able to return to her forest home once she has recovered from any dental surgery and treatment. If returned to the forest, she will continue to receive daily care and food, and any follow-up medical care down the line.

If we don't think she will be able to thrive in the forest once we know more and get her bloodwork back, we will figure something out for her so she can get the medical care she needs without returning to the forest.

Shelby came in from the Happy Forest feral colony today along with Chapel, and it's a good thing she did! The left side of her mouth is abscessed (you can see the pus between her teeth), her upper molar is loose, and her lower teeth may have resorptive lesions. And that's just what we could see from a quick look. She will be going in next week for dental surgery, hopefully in slightly better condition than she is in today.

Thankfully, we can confidently say she is already feeling much better thanks to some great pain meds and antibiotics. She's eaten several times and has been snuggling with both Chapel and Coridan. <3

Handsome Coridan is in our custody, eagerly awaiting a dental surgery on Tuesday, and treatment of an ear infection.

He's from the Happy Forest, and was neutered in March of 2015. He's a regular to the feeding station, but has never wanted to interact with the humans. It will be interesting to see how he reacts to captivity during his recovery period.

He has joined the kidney girls (Chloe, Sable and Ramona) so he will be more comfortable.

Cassidy the TinyTuxies miracle kitten had his first dental today, and got updated rads taken of his hips and stumps to monitor how they are doing.

This is his story, in case you missed it:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=im5LhVdKdhE&list=PLvM3djAZtdHQ5GUXFAoZHZModajl7sL0Y

You may be able to see that his right hip is likely to start causing him discomfort at some point, because the femoral head appears to be making contact with the socket. It doesn't seem to be bothering him yet, but I will continue to monitor him closely.

Dr. F and a surgical specialist reviewed his rads, and as soon as his hip does become painful he will need to have a femoral head excision surgery. This is a common surgery that should eliminate the source of pain and give him good mobility.

We know he will have issues with his joints as he gets older, and will do everything possible to keep him feeling good so he can continue to rule the household.

We trapped Puffs' mama, Sigma, this week so she can get a dental exam and check-up. She's always been hyper vigilant at our feeding station, and is quite fierce if she feels threatened.

We've learned so much about ferals by being able to watch how they behave and interact with each other on our livestreams when the Human Predators aren't around. We get the most unexpected little glimpses of their true purrsonalities, and get to reassure ourselves they are eating, drinking, relaxing, snuggling with each other, and even playing so we can be sure their stress levels are minimized during their time with us.

To see Sigma play for the first time was so beautiful. In case you don't know her story, we tried to trap her for several days before she gave birth to Cassidy (Puffs) the #MiracleKitten on July 4th, 2015. We knew she had given birth, so we had to stop trying to trap her because we didn't know where her kittens were and didn't have permission to access that part of the property to look for them. On August 19th, we had a rare opportunity to trap her, and we took it. Although it wasn't ideal, her kittens were six weeks old at that time, could survive a night without her (we hoped), and we knew we might not get another chance to trap her before she became pregnant again.

She was spayed and returned August 20th so she could return to her kittens. We had no idea about Cassidy or his legs, and while I know empirically it was the right decision, I will always feel guilt for taking her away from him for a night knowing now what condition he must have been in.

Thankfully, he and Topper survived the night, and the property owner found them a few weeks later, just in time to save Cassidy's life. He told me Sigma was fiercely protecting them from him, charging at him to keep him away, which is why it took him two days to trap both kittens.

She was an excellent mama, and deserves a happy, healthy life: www.tinykittens.com/cats/65

P.S. Cassidy does not appreciate change or unfamiliar adult cats, so I don't plan to have them meet at this point because I don't think either one would appreciate it. He saw Topper a few months after Topper had been adopted, and was scared and ran away. That's just his way.

The #MiracleKitten just had his first dental cleaning at Mountain View Veterinary Hospital, where he had one tooth extracted and also got updated hip/stump rads. He is recovering well, and enjoying some groggy wake-up snuggles. :D

We have learned just how important dental health is, particularly in cats and kittens coming from our Happy Forest feral colony (where Puffs was born and spent his first 9 weeks).

We're going to try to bring his very feral mama, Sigma, in for a dental later this month, if we can convince her to go into a trap...

When two Puffs use their special features to do battle... 🤣

Phase 1: Mini-Puffs (Auracuda) attacks Original Puffs' tail
Phase 2: Original Puffs uses two-legged launch procedure to drop out of sky to pounce on Mini-Puffs
Phase 3: Mini-Puffs sneezes e. coli* all over Original Puffs

* Aura has an infection in her nose from grooming herself and getting poo into her nose through her massive cleft palate. We're working on it. It's not really a risk to the other cats, since they don't let her sneeze directly up their noses. It's normal for cats to ingest e coli bacteria, and the digestive process generally prevents it from causing illness.
