I am a bengal cat who was born in 2005. In the summer of 2012, I was diagnosed as a diabetic cat. I want everyone to know that diabetic cats like me are just as fun and loving as cats without the disease.
Furiends, on Wednesday, I told you about how Willow, a feline who lived at Monument City Brewing Company, was taken by humans who thought he needed a home. The humans at the brewery did not think they were trying to hurt Willow, who is known as Will for short. Instead, they thought the humans who took him saw a friendly cat outside and wanted to give him a home.
Monument City’s humans missed Will, and they put out a call on their Facebook page to get him back. Local media shared the story, and the story spread far and wide. And fortunately for Will, it worked.
According to one of the humans at Monument City, three people who didn’t know about Will took him home. They didn’t know he was living at the brewery as a working cat. And they thought they would give him a good home.
“They treated [Will] really well” when he was away, said this human. And the interaction when they brought Will back was “nothing but positive.”
In order to celebrate Will’s return, Monument City is going to throw a party today. Or since it is because of a feline, maybe we should call it a pawty?
Now, there is a brewery in Baltimore looking for their feline. Monument City Brewing Company shared a picture of three humans looking at a feline living on their grounds. The feline is named Willow. The humans at the brewery like him a lot and they gave him the nickname Will.
“We’re sure this was done with the best intentions,” said the humans at the brewery. “However, we’re pretty attached to Will and hope that you bring him back to his home.”
Will’s humans have shared pictures of him in the past lounging around the brewery. One of these pictures showed Will relaxing next to a can of beer called Willow Hoppy Saison.
I hope that Will finds his way back to his home soon. It is clear his humans miss him, and we do not want rodents eating their grain!
Furiends, the best place for most of us felines is inside, where we are protected from the elements and all of the other risks of being outside. These things range from predators to cars to poisons to evil humans who abuse us.
But some felines do not do well in a home. And for those felines, a trap neuter return program works well. Sometimes, though, these felines will have no place to return to. For example, a vacant lot may be developed, and the felines cannot live there any more.
For these felines, kind humans with the NYC Feral Cat Initiative work to relocate them to places where they are welcomed. And these kind humans make sure they find the right places for these feral felines.
“It’s treated as a real adoption,” said one of the humans with the program. “We’re not just giving away feral cats to people who may not feed them,” they added.
One smart human who lives by the railroad tracks in New York turns to this program to help control mice. “I tell the neighbors how important they are. They don’t need any poison or mouse traps in the house,” he said.
And this kind human also treats the feral felines who help him just like he would a feline living in his home. In addition to giving them noms, he will talk to them, and lets them sleep inside the garage on a heating pad. These felines clearly like him, because sometimes they give him gifts of dead mice.
And when these felines leave him, he says, “it’s like a family member almost.”
