This is kinda a before and after post with me Sweetpea hosting. Mom trapped me as a feral kitten living with a colony of cats in the woods behind her house and brought me to live indoors. She was scared I would not live through the winter that year, especially after the whole group disappeared for days after a cold and snowy day. We must have found a warmer place to go 'cuz we all showed up again in a few days but Mom was sooo very worried about us especially me "cuz I was so tiny.
I lived in the bathroom for a few weeks until I got used to being handled and petted. The vet had to sedate me to examine me and told Mom to bathe me quick while I was still out like a light. I guess I was dirty, full of mats and had a skin condition. I was fierce even though I was small. Bit by bit I got better behaved and was allowed out to meet Angel Chica and Angel Yoko who were a bit older than me.
This is me now 15 years later - not much bigger than then but all growed up! I love my peeps and will sit in their lap whenever I can. I love Pop and want to sit on him whenever he watches TV. So you see feral cats can be tamed - even older ones. next week we will tell you about some other ferals in our house. Have a super weekend!
Sweetpea, you grew up into a really gorgeous kitty!
What a happy adoption story, Sweetpea. It does take a while for a feral kitty to warm up to their families but once they do, the waiting was all worth it. :)
Awwwww....What a lovely tale Sweetpea!
Happy Friday to mew too

We're so happy you were rescued and settled down to enjoy your indoor life! My parents had a feral they brought inside. She was rather aloof but did have a weakness for brushings ;-)
Sweetpea you sure are adorable!
You sure are a beautious one Sweet Pea!
Sweetpea, you are proof that feral kittens can be brought in and rehabilitated into happy, safe housecats.
Sweetpea, you have grown into a gorgeous kitty!
How awesome that you were taken in by such warm and caring humans. And how wonderful that you learned to love them. I love stories like that.
