Formerly Feral Friday - My Beginning

Some of you have asked about my kittens.
So I have decided to tell you a little about them. You can also learn more here in my Catster bio. I also talked about them in the book We Are The Kitties ...And We Writed You This Book .
Below is my first photo. I was still pretty feral and very untrusting.

Yup, still feral here too.

Daddy tried every kind of food to get me to trust him. Even hot dogs. Blech!

Getting a little more trusting and closer to coming inside.


I forgot to mention to my Daddy that I was pregnant. Oops! Here are some of my kittens after I brought them to meet Daddy. I had a total of 5 kittens. They were all very pretty. All of the ones in the above photos were girls.

All of the girls together.

Finally inside and loving it!



Here is my little boy. He looks like his Dad.



They liked to play outside (supervised).




Learning that love is a good thing (and so is stinky goodness!)
All of my kittens were spayed and neutered. Daddy worked very hard to find every one of them good homes. I was sorry to see them leave, but I was very happy that Daddy wanted to keep me even though there were 3 other kitties living in Mommy and Daddy's home in Kansas City. Some of you may not know this but Daddy worked for a few years in a SW Kansas town a long way from Kansas City. He would drive back and forth. When he would go home to see Mommy and my soon-to-be sibs, he'd get a sitter to come and take care of me! When he went back to Kansas City for good, I came along! My kittens all stayed in Kansas and are doing fine! And you all know we moved to O Hi O and are living happily ever after! I really am glad that I always get to put the formerly in front of feral! Have a great Friday!

I'm glad we're both formerly feral.

Cat Street Boyz said...

That was a great story, Parker, one that all ferals deserve. Problem is that there aren't enough beans around like your daddy & mommy, or many that are blogging or on Catster. But, through stories like yours we are recruiting new cat lovers and someday Parker, someday........=^Y^=Ty

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Oh what lovely kits! I did so miss my kits but I am glad you got such a fine home Parker!

Monty Q. Kat said...

Ok, I get that you were an UBER momcat, and that there was a dadcat somewhere and you two made some UBER cute kittens.

I just don't get how you two made the kittens. Mail-order? Tape? I asked MomBean but got a thunk for it.

Tybalt said...

Parker, you had gorgeous kittens! I am so glad that you have a "former" in front of "feral," too! Your dad is super awesome! Purrrrrrs.

Hilda said...

What a wonderful story! I had no idea youe had such an exciting beginning and that you were a mommy! It sounds like your Daddy is a very good Daddy!

Tara said...

Your kittens were all very very pretty! You certainly have meezer in you with your pretty blue eye and your kittens. You really are a Daddy's girl aren't you? That is really nice.

Parker... do you know that one of your kitties looks just like me???

Also. I was feral once too! It's true. Pumpy and I were found in a parking lot in Harlem NYC. We've always been a little shy.

I enjoyed your story. Kudos to your dad for taking such good care of you and your kittiesl

Daisy said...

Parker, thanks for telling us about your babies. It's really amazing how far you have come since then. I am especially happy that your dad kept you and found homes for the babies. Many people would have kept a kitten instead. That would have been a very big mistake!

Lux said...

Oh Parker, you had the cutest kittens! I loved looking at all these pictures. Your dad did a good good thing!

Parker, I didn't know that you were a mommy. Your story is very special because it highlights what wonderful parents you have. It's time for my mom and me to go to bed. I think we'll both sleep with visions of you and your baby kitties being taken care of.
