Formerly Feral Friday - Love Is Shown In Many Ways

Being a formerly feral kitty, I know how awful it is to feel unloved and sad. Thankfully, I am a lucky kitty because I always get to put formerly in front of the feral. All of this week I've seen an outpouring of love in a lot of ways. We all pull together and help other kitties and their families through the Cat Blogosphere and through CFHF. This post is about another type of love.
Last February a very nice lady where Mommy hunts lost her life in a metal machine. She left behind two young boys. It is a very sad situation. Some of the people Mommy hunts with came up with a great idea to have a bake sale for her two boys by giving them some green papers to help them when it is time for them to go to college. As you can see, we helped Mommy and Daddy bake some human treats for the sale.
MMMmmmmMMM! Muffins and cake!
Puff closely supervised!
They had the bake sale on Thursday. And here is the amazing part - they raised almost 4,000 green papers! Mommy works in a large health care place and she said that the beans who work there were very generous.
Wouldn't it be a wonderful thing if beans were always this loving and kind-hearted? This formerly feral kitty thinks so!
Have a fabulous Friday!

How wonderful that the bake sale was a great success! Your Mom has a kind, loving heart and a gentle spitit, Parker. It would be wonderful if most humans were as generous and kind as the ones that turned out for the bake sale.

What a lovely thing for your Mom to do and what a fantastic result! I so agree with you, how wonderful it would be if all beans were this loving and kind:) xxx

It is indeed good that you can say "formerly" before Feral. It is a sad and lonely situation for a kitty, any kitty, and our hearts bleed for those out there hungry and scared. We wish efurryone would spay and neuter so that there wouldn't be so many looking for their forever homes.

It was sad too to hear about the friend of your Mom's who left two young little ones ... but it was with great kindness that so many gave so much.

Your Mom is a very kindhearted and generous lady, you are indeed lucky to have such a warm and loving home to share.

Your mommy is Awesome Parker! It's nice to know that beans can be as nice as all of us kitties are.

And Mommy says thanks for the tip on the fresh nip - though she's not sure that it's going to make it. Apparently some kitty, who shall remain nameless, climbed up on the kitchen counter, then on to the window sill and up the window to steal the nip. When she woke up she found it in the sink looking pretty sorry!

Oh those sweets look nummy. Good for your beans for helping two young beans go to school. We always like to hear about when humans are loving to each other!

Princess said...

Tragic tragic story.... happens all to often too... mommies leaving much to early. Hearts broken. Very sad.
My mom loves bakes sales. She loves baking for them, and buying other beans goodies.
She just went to a bake sale on Monday and bought a pile of cookies!

I am very pleased that $ will be raised to help these boys. America is a wonderful country

Hi Parker,

We never doubted for a minute that you have such wonderful caring beans! We are so glad to hear that the bake sale was such a success. Be sure to give your beans lots of purrs and headbutts. They deserve it!

Quasi said...

This was a wonderful thing for your mother to do! And what a baker! What do I need to do to get her to bake for me? My humans are kitchen-challenged.

Derby said...

What a fantastic thing to do. I wish we could get that kind of green papers for CFHF.

Forty Paws said...

That is wonderful indeed! We hope you laced the cakes and muffins with fur for added fiber.
